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.
