Whitehorse, Yukon - Originally designed to host the 2007 Canada Winter Games, the expansive Canada Games Centre continues to play a vital role in the community of Whitehorse, Yukon, serving as a hub for sports, community events, and active living.

A facility of its size requires substantial upkeep, and that recently included a sizeable delivery of gym floor covers to protect the centre’s 20,000-square-foot hardwood gym floor. Twenty sections of ULTIMA 4000™ gym floor tarps were delivered last December, replacing an older gym floor covering with a high-quality system that pairs the gym floor protection with two ULTIMA SERIES COVERMATE™ II storage racks. In fact, the 10-roller racks gave COVERMASTER® an edge over a competitor’s eight-roller rack by reducing the storage space needed to house the protective covers. Storing two ULTIMA™ mobile storage racks versus the competitor’s three racks made sense, especially when combined with the, increased load capacity, and safety features standard in the ULTIMA™ Series product.

“Safety is very important to us and with the easy-to-use mobile storage rack system, installation, removal, and storage is done safely and quickly,” said Operations Supervisor Darrell Peters.

Having purchased a Covermaster Floor cover system over 14 years ago, they knew this would be a good investment. The highly rated gym floor covering system not only satisfied the customer’s budget but provided a superior alternative to other offerings. “We run the largest facility in the Yukon, the Canada Games Centre, and it’s important to have high quality. The ULTIMA™ 4000 provides that,” Darrell explained. “COVERMASTER® provides a very high-quality floor covering product which I would recommend to be used in all public facilities.” The previously purchased cover has been given to the Department of Health which is using it in another facility for a clinic site for COVID.

The dual-sided grey and desert sand gymnasium floor covering features a diamond tread-plate pattern with an anti-slip top surface that’s suitable for any event. Designed for high frequency use, it’s an ideal way to protect the surface from damage causes by tables, chairs, footwear, and even sound and stage setups.
