The start of the school year is the beginning of the wear and tear on the rubber sports flooring and hardwood sports flooring in your facilities. These floors experience traffic year-round, but the school year brings more students, more practices, and more time spent in the training rooms. Make sure you follow these tips based on the type of sports flooring in your facility to protect your company’s investment, keep people safe, and keep the flooring looking newer longer.
Indoor track with Mondo Super X 720 surface
Clemson University installed a state-of-the-art banked indoor track with Mondo’s Super X 720 surface in its Indoor Track & Field Complex. The Super X 720 surface was installed in the complex on a straightaway eight-lane sprint track, one high jump apron, two pole vault runways and two long and triple jump runways.
Mark Elliott, Clemson’s head coach for men’s and women’s track & field and cross country, said Mondo is generally recognized as the fastest surface for indoor tracks. In particular, he said, coaches and athletes consider the indoor track at the University of Arkansas, which is a Mondo banked track, to be the fastest in the U.S.
“Everyone wants to compete there, so we wanted to get a track like that one,” he said. “I wanted the track that is considered the fastest, and I think I’m getting that with our new Mondo track.”
