Greensboro, NC - There was no holding back when it came time to protect the gym floors in the Kaplan Center, a new multi-million-dollar student recreation facility that opened at the University of North Carolina’s Greensboro campus last summer.
Familiar with Covermaster products used at another university, the school’s director of recreation sports opted for Ultima 4000 vinyl gym floor covering for the largest gymnasium and Platinum CoverTile gym carpet for two smaller areas. Both brands of gym floor protection would allow the school to utilize the spaces for non-athletic events without risking damage to the new and costly gymnasium floors.
Ultima 4000 is a heavyweight, slip-resistant cover with a diamond tread-plate pattern designed for high frequency use. The two-sided gym floor cover is versatile and can withstand the rigors of heavy pedestrian traffic, tables and chairs, and even stage and sound set-ups. CoverTile’s carpeted surface is ideal for more formal occasions. Easy to install and remove, the individual gym carpet tiles provide excellent sound absorption and are durable enough to guard against damage during special events.
The Leonard J. Kaplan Center for Wellness is a large, modern facility designed for both casual play and serious workouts, and also serves as a flexible space for a wide range of both athletic and non-sporting activities.
