Ecore Introduces New Sports Flooring Concept
Lancaster, Pennsylvania, June 21, 2013—Ecore
Commercial Flooring and Everlast are introducing a new product called Terf, a turf
flooring that can be used to change regular spaces into sports
and fitness venues.
Designed for indoor sport and agility use and
spike resistant, Everlast Terf is available in 6’ wide rolls and 23” to 46”
interlocking tiles with 5mm or 12mm recycled rubber backing.
Whether a traditional gym environment or
pop-up field hockey or soccer field, Terf meets a number of possible
applications, including: heavy indoor sports training,
including use with football pulling sleds and speed schools that promote speed,
power, strength, flexibility, and endurance training; competitive
field hockey, lacrosse, and soccer fields; multi-purpose and potentially
portable field installations; and under-utilized spaces, ranging from convention halls
to schools, to create spaces for health and wellness.
Because of Terf's integrated performance attributes, it will allow
athletes to perform better, longer, and with reduced risk of injury. Of
particular importance is force reduction, which measures and evaluates a flooring
system’s ability to reduce impact, especially to the lower extremities.
Further setting itself apart in the category
of sports and fitness flooring, Everlast Terf interlocking tiles enable
designers to opt for an adhesive-free installation.
Terf can transform a basketball court,
cafeteria, or auditorium into a portable playing surface without the need for
adhesive or risk of damaging the floor underneath.
Users can pull up the tiles easily and store
them away in a closet after a rain delay or after the practice or game has
ended. The product can also be glued down, if desired.
Everlast Terf features Ecore’s Itstru technology, which allows a nylon wear layer to be fused to a backing that contains post-consumer recycled rubber.
