Laredo, TX - It took three truckloads to deliver a massive order of portable event flooring to Uni-Trade Stadium in Laredo, Texas earlier this year. Though product installation has been delayed by the pandemic, the 100,000-square-foot order of MasterShield™ Lite is on site and ready for upcoming events.
The portable outdoor flooring is ideal for the baseball stadium’s newly installed synthetic turf field. The venue is home to the Tecolotes de los Dos Laredos, a minor league team of the Mexican Baseball League, and the Laredo Roses, a women’s full-contact U.S. football team. It also hosts youth soccer, youth baseball, and special events.
The event flooring’s solid surface — minus the air holes used for natural grass fields — prevent spills from reaching the turf below. The order also included expansion panels, ideal in the hot Texas climate where high heat is prevalent and can cause plastic stadium flooring to contract and expand. Expansion panels help to compensate for dramatic temperature changes, preventing outdoor event flooring from buckling or warping.
MasterShield™ Lite is easily installed without special tools or training. The interlocking tiles are pre-assembled into panels that connect to each other using a unique Pivot-Lock connection system. In a matter of hours, any sports field can be transformed into a venue perfect for concerts, graduations, and other special events.
