Waterville, Maine - One of the crowning features of Colby College’s new 350,000-square-foot athletics center, slated to open this year, is an oversized gymnasium ideal for both sporting and special events. The Colby Athletics Center will be instrumental in solidifying the college and community’s reputation as a regional center for sports training and competition.
The private liberal arts college in Waterville, Maine has been working with Covermaster for decades, sourcing gym floor covers in 1993 and another in 2007 for the Harold Alfond Athletic Center. It’s new center has an impressive 210 x 300 foot gymnasium floor with courts for basketball and volleyball, and a surrounding running track. Investing in a quality gym floor covering system will protect the new floor while providing a surface that is ideal for hosting non-athletic events.
Earlier this month, 64 sections of Ultima™ 4000 gym floor tarps in a desert sand/royal blue combination were delivered to the college, along with eight Ultima Series CoverMate™ mobile storage racks, two PowerMate™ winders, a CoverClean™ brush and other accessories. The heavyweight, slip-resistant gym floor protection stands up to high frequency use and also protects the gym floor from damage caused by tables, chairs, stage and sound setups, and footwear.
The Ultima™ Series gym floor protection system is a flexible one, covering as much or as little of the gymnasium floor as needed, depending on the event. Storage racks make installation and removal safe and easy, and within a short time any venue can be converted into an event center.
