SnapSports® Athletic Floors Introduces Their New Maple TuffShield® Sports Flooring, an Industry First

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Maple TuffShield

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.

SnapSports Athletic Surfaces, the industry’s leading manufacturer and supplier of modular athletic surfaces, introduces their all new multi-patent pending BounceBack ShockTower™ sports surfacing.
