Hilo, HI - The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo is one of 10 campuses throughout the Hawaiian Islands. With 33 undergraduate and three graduate programs, it is known for marine science, astronomy, volcanology, and Hawaiian studies. Known as the Vulcans, athletics include softball, cross country, golf, soccer, basketball, baseball, tennis, and volleyball. On campus, the Vulcan Gymnasium is home for Hawai‘i Hilo Women's Volleyball, a variety of intramural sports, and the annual Fall Commencement Ceremonies for the university.

Commencement is just one of the non-athletic events held on the Vulcan gymnasium floor. These events expose the gym floor to potentially damaging wear and tear caused by tables, chairs, and non-athletic shoes. When looking for improved gym floor protection, the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo initiated a tender to potential suppliers and COVERMASTER® won the bid with competitive pricing and a world class reputation for sports surface protection.

12 sections of 100-foot-long MASTER 1800 vinyl gym floor covers were ordered from COVERMASTER®. Designed for regular use, this 18-ounce, 3-ply gym protection is lighter in weight and easy-to-install. Made with a polyester core and PVC coating on both sides, MASTER 1800 floor cover provides good protection at an economical price. It’s suitable for most non-athletic events and can be used with either side facing up. To store the gym floor cover, two, 6-roller MASTER SERIES COVERMATE™ storage racks were also ordered. Muhalo University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo from COVERMASTER®!
