Guelph, Ontario - At the University of Guelph in southwestern Ontario, student athletes are welcoming the construction of the new state-of-the-art Guelph Gryphons Athletics Centre. A two-storey fitness centre, suspended running track, varsity basketball and volleyball courts, and a climbing wall are among the facility’s attributes.
Still under construction, the $45-million complex opened in the fall of 2016 and earlier this year, hosted the annual Gryphons Athletic Banquet with more than 800 people in attendance. Part of the event’s success meant transforming the new hardwood playing surface with Covermaster’s Platinum Easyroll Carpet, a roll-out gym floor covering that protects the floor during non-athletic events.
More than 22,000 square feet of gym carpet were delivered to the athletics centre last month, along with six mobile storage racks and a power winder to help with installation and removal. The single-sided gym carpet rolls have a soft backing that protects hardwood courts, a non-porous inner LeakBlock Core that stops liquids from reaching the floor below, and an overlap system designed to create a seamless finish.
Stain resistant, easy to clean and resistant to damage from furniture and pedestrian traffic, the Easy Roll™ gym carpets will help extend the centre’s use for years to come.
