Friday, May 22nd, 2020

The 2020 NBA All-Star and Jr. NBA Weekend is the First Event to Showcase New HALO TuffShield Flooring

SnapSports teamed up again with the NBA for the 2020 All-Star and Jr. NBA weekend in Chicago this year. We installed over 30,000 square feet of our Maple TuffShield surfacing for the 4-day marathon event of basketball tournaments and skills challenges. NBA Pro athletes from all over the country worked out with kids of all ages on our floors.

We chose this event to unveil our newest addition to the SnapSports product family, introducing our new line of iridescent HALO TuffShield color options. The Blue HALO TuffShield finish showcased in each basketball key provided a stunning contrast with the Maple TuffShield courts–certainly a unique and interesting focal point! Not only are these new finishes good-looking, the HALO TuffShield options are designed to hold up to the serious play of competitions like the 2020 NBA All-Star Weekend. This flooring continues the SnapSports legacy with the advanced patented technology that athletes have come to expect.

A huge thank you to our production team for producing all of the product without any delays and to the quality standards that make the SnapSports brand the best in the industry. And a shout out to our shipping team for taking great care to get the product delivered and picked up on schedule. This was a great event to kick off what will most certainly be another stellar year for SnapSports!

SnapSports is the only modular athletic surface manufacturer to offer flooring systems with the TuffShield technology. Developed in 2004, TuffShield is an in-mold process resulting in a brilliant, exceptionally durable, high performance sports surface. The new “HALO” effect adds a new dimension to any floor, seemingly changing color depending on the angle. Designed to compliment the industry leading Maple TuffShield, HALO is a standout product option for keys, court baselines and other floor accents guaranteed to make any court pop. The extra wear layer provided by the TuffShield finish is easy to clean, hard to scratch, and will not wear or peel. The HALO series takes the TuffShield technology to a new level, creating the first modular sports surface tile with a high-tech, iridescent look without compromising durability.

Unlike competing modular sport surfaces, which apply thin films and painted coatings, which tend to easily wear and peel, TuffShield incorporates a multi-patented, 100% in-mold technology for unmatched durability, quality and consistency.

“The feedback from sport facility managers, coaches and players has been incredible. The players and fans love the play and look of this system. Year after year, our team is committed to developing the industry’s best and top performing products, and I am proud to say they knocked it out of the park again with TuffShield Maple. ” – Jorgen Moller CEO of SnapSports, Inc.

SnapSports®, recognized as the worlds leading manufacturer and supplier of premium athletic surfaces, is no stranger to innovation in the sports flooring world. SnapSports continues to introduce the industry’s leading performance sports flooring products year after year. SnapSports Athletic Floor offerings include both commercial and residential outdoor multi-courts and indoor gymnasium surfaces.

Some of SnapSports’ exclusive technologies include ShockTower® – a full-suspension floor system with 16 resilient shock absorbers per square foot, inserted into the sub-structure, providing an added level of “cush” to reduce impact on athletes joints and limbs during play; ShockLock® – an interlocking system which lets individual modules slide during impact, but keeps the entire sport surface fully engaged. This built-in “give” eases player joint impact and creates a safer athletic surface; BounceBack® – a full-suspension modular flooring system with an understructure that performs as a high impact shock absorber, reducing fatigue and injury to athletes. Each square foot of BounceBack weighs in at over one pound, stands ¾” tall and contains nearly 1,200 shock absorbing support towers. It is the industry heavyweight.

SnapSports Inc. Receives Patents for DuraCourt and BounceBack Technology

Friday, October 16th, 2009

SnapSports Inc. was awarded two US patents for their DuraCourt and BounceBack sports surfaces. The first patent covers the multi-level, slip-resistant surface of the DuraCourt flooring. The second applies to the lateral locking and Dual Suspension® systems of the BounceBack flooring.

“We believe we make the best modular sports flooring available today. Our unique patented designs have exceeded the expectations of our customers all over the world,” said Jorgen Moller, CEO of SnapSports.

BounceBack, a ¾” flooring system, has the highest shock-absorption rating of any modular sports tile. Its ShockLock® and Dual Suspension® systems allow for greater impact stability and support heavier rolling loads. The under-structure of the BounceBack provides a “cush” effect and increases ball response in sports like basketball and volleyball.

DuraCourt, a 5/8″ tall outdoor modular sports surface, is more rigid and impact stable for multi-sport games like inline hockey and tennis.
