Weight rooms require the toughest floors available.
Everyone can benefit from high quality, appropriate flooring in their athletic facilities. It’s a critical component where athletes practice or compete.
A weightlifting platform must provide support at the moment of maximum effort. It has to be stable, uniform, and comfortable. In a weight room, dropped weights can scratch, dent, or damage flooring. FJ Roberts offers multiple weight room flooring options, so that both athletes and facilities are protected.
From clean & jerk platforms to speed & agility turf, we can help you select, then outfit your entire facility with the highest quality products available.
Yale University – Payne Whitney Varsity Weight Room
New Haven, CT
Issue – A roof leak contributed to an already failing floor in the Yale varsity weight room. Their Strength and Conditioning staff were looking for a new floor with some cushion and energy return for both themselves and their varsity athletes. They were also looking for something that was non-porous, wouldn’t harbor germs, and easy to clean. Additionally, they were looking for a floor that would make a statement to their recruits and current players that Yale was committed to athletics and developing winning programs.
Solution – We came up with a system that combined cushion with a highly durable easy to clean floor. They chose to use a18mm Mondo Ramflex strength consisting of a soft cushioning underlayment with durable virgin vulcanized rubber top layer. After completing the cushion layer, we put down Mondo Ramflex with a full spread polyurethane adhesive. To avoid tripping hazards and to make the room more flexible, we inlaid Olympic lift platforms with the iconic “Y” logo. The result is a fantastic looking floor that is easy to maintain and will last many years.
