De Pere, WI - De Pere High School in De Pere, Wisconsin is one of many schools across the U.S. that decided to convert their athletic fields into a graduation venue this year, moving the event outdoors to encourage safe distancing among guests and students.

In early March, the school’s staff reached out to COVERMASTER® in search of turf protection for their synthetic football field. In May, 5,300 square feet of MASTERSHIELD PLUS™ turf protection mats and 42 edging pieces were delivered to the school in time for their June 7 graduation. The translucent turf protectors were paired with four-foot-long edging units to create a smooth transition from the ground to the protective floor, helping to increase accessibility.

MASTERSHIELD PLUS™ is an easy-to-install, cost-effective portable event flooring. Simply overlap each panel and step down until it snaps into position, creating a surface that protects the turf below from spilled liquids and excessive traffic. Its diamond tread surface is slip-resistant and easy to clean with a pressure washer after each event.

Investing in a turf protector like MASTERSHIELD PLUS™ is an economical way to host high-traffic events. Whether your field is natural or synthetic and regardless of climate, a temporary event flooring can quickly and easily turn your outdoor space into a multi-purpose venue.
