Brampton, Ontario - It took a group effort to come up with the best solution for temporary event flooring at the Brampton Soccer Centre this spring.
Built in 2007, the popular Brampton, Ontario facility has four indoor soccer fields and four outdoor fields, with overlapping cricket pitches. Recently, a project was launched to convert one of the indoor soccer fields to multiple volleyball courts using MasterShield Plus® stadium flooring and a modular court system placed on top. This portable event flooring could host a range of other activities as well, including badminton, dances, and community events.
The project with Barrie-based Gym-Con Ltd. combined several products — Covermaster’s MasterShield Plus® temporary event flooring placed over the artificial turf, followed by a thin layer of padding and a portable multi-purpose playing surface. Custom cut to fit the entire field, MasterShield Plus® is designed for high volume pedestrian traffic. Its snap-lock installation system and overlapping edges ensure that foreign contaminants and spills don’t reach the turf below, and it’s strong enough to support light equipment and vehicles.
Approximately 21,000 square feet of MasterShield Plus® temporary flooring was installed at the Brampton centre in early April and the system can be easily removed once soccer shifts back inside the facility this fall. Bringing unique products together in one project has proven to be a successful way to increase the venue’s functionality.
