The Ultimate Turf Protection System
Unlock the income-generating potential of your stadium with world-class turf protection matting that allows you to host a wide range of outdoor specialty events. EventDeck is available in two different models, EventDeck 1 and EventDeck 2 for natural and synthetic turf.
Aeration holes protect & nurture natural turf
EventDeck 1 (ED1) may be used to protect Bluegrass, Rye, Bermuda Grass, most warm and cold weather grass varieties, and has been used extensively in all climate conditions. Each ED1 module incorporates drainage, air ventilation, a moisture canopy, and bi-lateral cross ribbing for effective weight distribution. From high schools to colleges and professional stadiums, EventDeck is a budget-friendly option that provides superior protection for natural grass fields.
Smooth top is ideal for synthetic turf
EventDeck 2 (ED2) is designed specifically for both mono and duo-filament synthetic turf and offers a greater level of protection against debris, liquids and dirt. ED2 may also be used to protect sand and rubber in-fill fields. EventDeck is used on all types of synthetic turf from multiple manufacturers including FieldTurf, Sportexe and Astroturf. ED2 is designed to minimize wear, surface abrasion, surface compaction, and contamination of the turf. Underside channels are contoured to eliminate sharp edges.
Flexible Floor Design
EventDeck temporary flooring system is completely expandable and configurable as required on-site. EventDeck panels connect on all sides using Signature’s easy-to-use connection system.
This interlocking design allows for rapid installation and removal with minimal labor and no equipment. Each specially designed connector T utilizes a unique tubular design that serves as both a connector and a fully functional hinge. Staple or tape carpet and synthetic turf right to EventDeck to create a one-of-kind look for any event.
Innovative Engineered Design for Stadium Events
Each EventDeck temporary flooring module is manufactured in the United States using a high-quality co-polymer plastic material that has a high izod impact value and specific no-break characteristics. High ethylene content provides flexure and prevents cracking. A 5-year UV package is incorporated into the material formulation to prevent brittleness over time as a result of sun exposure. EventDeck modular flooring, is resistant to the rigors of regular use and will not break, crack, fade or become brittle and can be used in all climates and conditions.
Low Maintenance Stadium Flooring System
EventDeck is designed without submerged channels into which debris can be lodged and without any unsightly patterns to catch dirt. Each section has an anti-slip sandblast finish that is low maintenance and easy to clean and maintain using a mop.
Reduce Floor Gaps and Surface Distortion
The slightest variations in temperature causes plastic modular flooring products to expand and contract, creating dangerous gaps and distortion to the surface.
Signature Systems’ patented Expansion Joint Technology is designed to compensate for thermal expansion and allow EventDeck to contract and expand naturally without warping.
Create a Safer More Level Temporary Floor
EventDeck has integrated cable channels to create a safer more level floor. Easily run wires and power cords to center poles, and other in-tent areas under the surface the floor, reducing the trip hazard that wires present while also protecting them from damage.
Smooth Transition Safety Edging
EventDeck edging is available to enhance the look of the floor and for added safety. Simply snap edge pieces on to the end of any flooring section for a finished look, to provide a visible perimeter, and to allow for wheelchairs, rolling carts and equipment to be transported onto and off the floor. Edging is available in standard colors and in safety yellow.
EventDeck Rapidly Deploys in Any Stadium Without Tools
Signature Systems’ proprietary floor design enables EventDeck to be positioned into place using feet only, eliminating the need to bend over or any tools. Pre-assembled sections are compact for easy transport and storage. Once modules are connected, assembled sections roll up for easy installation, storage and transport, allowing for thousands of square feet of event flooring to be installed quickly and easily with minimal labor.
Each individual flooring section is gently curved on the male connector side and correspondingly curved on the female side, such that when a section is butted up against another, it may be nudged into place easily and will self-position. Once positioned, connectors are lined up and ready for snap down connection. This industry leading feature proves invaluable for large installations and saves labor, time and costs.
