San Diego, CA - Like many other facilities, the O’Farrell Charter School in San Diego, wanted to maximize the use of their gym without risking damage to their new floor. That meant finding gym floor protection that would stand up to a variety of non-athletic events. After seeing a Covermaster system at another school and hearing that they were very satisfied with their system, O’Farrell Charter School contacted Covermaster to provide them with the right solution for their gym.
The San Diego Unified School District and O’ Farrell Charter School opted for the Ultima 4000, a heavyweight, slip-resistant floor cover, designed for high frequency use and heavy traffic. They ordered nine sections of the 10-foot-wide, dual-sided gym floor covering in desert sand/grey, along with an additional five-foot wide section that can also be used in front of the bleachers and team bench areas. A 10-roller CoverMate mobile storage rack with heavy-duty power winder helps to install and remove the gym floor covering system easily and quickly. Recently they added the Ultima Series CoverClean Duel Brush to go with their system. The Duel Brush sweeps the top and bottom of the floor cover as it is being removed, eliminating the need to sweep the full gym floor after every event.
The new gym floor cover was ordered last summer in anticipation of the 2016-17 school year and are very happy with the product. The school Principal Brian Rainy indicated that the school use the covers for all big events in the gym where they set up tables and chairs, and said “Overall, it's been a good product.”
They are looking forward to using it at the school’s upcoming graduation ceremonies, among other large events such as high school orientation nights, dances and career fairs. The Covermaster floor cover system will help keep the floor in great shape as the school plans to make the gym available to the community for other outside events.
