Antigonish, Nova Scotia - St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada is known for its academic excellence in arts, science, business, and education, as well as its immersive residence experience. In 2017, the university needed gym floor protection from non-athletic events. It ordered PLATINUM EASYROLL™ CARPET from COVERMASTER® for one of its gymnasiums. Then in 2023, they had a rush need for gym floor protection in a change in exam venues.

This time around, Francis Xavier wanted floor protection that provided a variety of configurations and more flexibility in using it in various sizes. COVERMASTER® recommended PLATINUM COVERTILE™ for just that purpose. Each 39” x 78” (1m x 2m) gym floor tile is designed to withstand the wear and tear of non-athletic events. It features super tear resistance and a non-marking Polyolefin Plus backing that is stain resistant and sound absorbent.

The university ordered a quantity of 300 PLATINUM COVERTILE™ tiles along with five PLATINUM COVERTILE™ STORAGE CARTS on November 16th. The entire order was rushed by COVERMASTER® and delivered to them a few days before their December 3rd need. A crew of four persons were able to install 800 square meters of PLATINUM COVERTILE™ in an hour. With fast and efficient delivery by COVERMASTER® and speedy PLATINUM COVERTILE™ installation in the gymnasium, St. Francis Xavier was able to protect their gym floor in record time.
