ArmorDeck®Heavy-duty Natural and Synthetic Turf Protection and Portable Roadway
ArmorDeck® (AD) is Signature’s premium natural and synthetic turf stadium floor covering system. It is designed to handle heavy loads and to provide the ultimate in stability and ground protection. It is the most advanced engineered stadium flooring system on the market today and offers superior surface protection for all types of grass surfaces and infill.
ArmorDeck is a large panel system that features an integrated connection system, an optional turf pad system, a durable zinc-plated steel cam lock system, and unsurpassed liquid spill protection. Each section has a useable surface area of 42″ x 42″ and is 2″ thick (1.06m x 1.06m x 5.08cm) that provides maximum rigidity and surface protection. Traverse forklifts, lulls, trucks and other equipment on ArmorDeck and connect versions to each other for a seamless floor. With fast installation and dismantle times, easy cleanup and reuse for many years, Signature’s turf protection provides a significant return on investment.
The Ultimate Stadium Flooring System
Unlock the income-generating potential of your stadium with world-class turf protection matting that allows you to host a wide range of specialty events.
ArmorDeck is available in three versions, each providing a specific solution and can be combined for the ultimate integrated special event flooring system. For example, it is possible to combine ArmorDeck 3, with bottom protection layer, with ArmorDeck 1, with aeration holes, to create a uniform, fully connected floor for all event areas.
Ideal for natural turf and grass protection
Includes drainage holes
Ideal for synthetic turf protection
Smooth surface without drainage holes
Ideal for heavy-duty weight and traffic
Solid bottom panel
ArmorDeck 3 features an additional reinforcing panel welded to the bottom of an ArmorDeck 2 panel to provide a significant increase in strength and allow much heavier vehicles to traverse the completed surface.
Industry-Leading Grass Protection Capabilities
ArmorDeck 1 features an expansive moisture canopy and bi-directional ribbing system, which distributes weight effectively and allows grass to grow while the temporary flooring is installed. Drainage and aeration holes provide circulation and help keep natural turf healthy and safe, while small rims surrounding each drainage hole prevent unwanted liquids from penetrating the surface and reaching the ground.
A translucent version of ArmorDeck is available for enhanced natural grass protection. Sunlight penetrates the protective panels to allow photosynthesis to continue for the duration of the installation, enabling an extended installation over natural grass.
Unsurpassed Liquid Spill Protection
ArmorDeck tiles overlap, providing the ultimate in surface protection. Each overlap/underlay combination also incorporates a liquid capture channel, which prevents unwanted liquids from flowing through the seam and onto the protected surface.
Designed to Handle Heavy Weights
ArmorDeck stadium floor cover is designed to handle heavy weights (20,000 lbs. per sq. ft.) from vehicles, forklifts, and other moving loads and is the ideal choice for both front-of-house and backstage areas. Combine ArmorDeck versions for the ultimate integrated stadium flooring system. ArmorDeck’s proprietary plastic cam lock system provides superior life span and long-term durability. The integrated hook- and-loop system provides additional torsional stability and strength and enables ArmorDeck to handle the heaviest of loads.
Innovative Engineering Design for Superior Turf Protection
ArmorDeck is manufactured in the United States using high-density polyethene (HDPE) which is reinforced with additives for strength, flex modulus, izod impact value and specific no-break characteristics. A 5-year UV package is incorporated into the material formulation to prevent brittleness over time as a result of sun exposure. ArmorDeck is extremely durable and able to withstand most weather conditions – it is waterproof and it will not rot, splinter, warp, become waterlogged, rust or corrade.
Easy to Maintain
ArmorDeck is designed to be easy to clean and to require minimal maintenance. This temporary stadium flooring system is designed without surface channels, into which dirt and debris can become stuck. The surface is uniform and consistent without unsightly patterns or ridges that can catch and retain dirt. Each panel has an anti-slip sandblast finish that is easy to clean using standard cleaning materials, such as mops, brooms and water.
Manage Thermal Expansion
The slightest variations in temperature cause traditional plastic modular flooring products to expand and contract, causing dangerous gaps and distortion to the surface.
Signature Systems’ patented Expansion Joint Technology is designed to compensate for thermal expansion caused by varying temperatures. Signature inserts allow ArmorDeck to contract and expand naturally without warping. The adjustable nature of the Expansion Joints can also be used to close small gaps that may occur when the tent widths and tile widths do not match without cutting the tiles to fit.
Host More Events with ArmorDeck’s Fast Installation Time
ArmorDeck features an integrated connection system that is self-aligning and provides ease of installation and tremendous strength. The modular flooring tiles are simply laid into place and self-align using Signature’s proprietary hook and loop fastening system which guides panels.
Reinforcement ribbing is incorporated behind the connector loops. Connector tabs are specially designed with flexure to prevent breakage. For applications with heavy weights from vehicles, forklifts, and other moving loads, Signature’s proprietary cam lock system can be utilized for added strength and torsional stability.
Create a Safer More Level Temporary Floor
ArmorDeck has integrated cable channels to create a safer more level floor. The deep molded channels allow cables to run under the surface of the floor, reducing the trip hazard that wires present while also protecting them from damage.
Smooth Transition Safety Edging
ArmorDeck edging is available to create a smooth transition and finished look. Edging connects via the hook and loop connection system and contains cam locks for added security. The sloped ramps help prevent tripping and allow easy access for carts, machinery, and wheelchairs and the ribbed surface prevents slipping.

Liquid Containment: Connected panels overlap to minimize liquid penetration. Incorporates a specialized containment channel under each overlapping area, designed to capture stray liquid that may seep from top surface.
Reinforcing Panel: Optional module attaches to the underside of each panel to provide additional strength, rigidity and weight distribution and allow the system to support heavier weights. All ArmorDeck variants interconnect to allow for a seamless surface and customized installations.
Aeration Holes: Specially designed for use over live grass to allow light, aeration, and water drainage. Each aeration hole incorporates a proprietary ridge that prevents casual spills from flowing through to the subsurface. This specialized aeration hole ridge also improves traction in wet conditions.
