Replacing Your Gym Floor

May 10, 2019 jill Blog

The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Their organizations are located around the world and boast a total of over 1.8 million members in 15,000 councils. One of those councils is the Kenmore Knights of Columbus in Buffalo, NY. The Kenmore facility hosts a wide variety of community events for its 800 members.

The space that sees the most activity, by far, is their gymnasium. It is home to numerous basketball league practices and games each week. When it was time for Kenmore to replace their old, worn-out gym floor in 2013, they partnered with Surface America and chose the ElastoFloor Roll-Pour system, known for its comfortable surface and extreme durability.

ElastoFloor Roll-Pour is engineered specifically for use as an indoor basketball court or court for other sports like volleyball, tennis, or racquetball. Kenmore selected it for its reputation of having excellent slip, abrasion, and wear resistance. Its top surface has exceptional footing and true ball bounce, while its shock- and sound-absorbing basemat enhances performance and reduces fatigue.

“We made the right choice with ElastoFloor. Surface America handled the installation and the floor came out beautiful. Everybody loves it – especially the players. They really appreciate the slip-resistant features – when they run for a loose ball, they’re not injuring themselves if they fall down,” said Tim McCarthy, general manager at Kenmore.

McCarthy also shared that they originally considered replacing their old gym flooring with a wood floor, but they knew the cleaning and upkeep would be more labor-intensive. The ElastoFloor Roll-Pour floor allows for easy cleaning and maintenance. McCarthy also liked that they were able to customize the floor colors. They chose a blue and gold combination to reflect the organization’s colors.

After six years of court action, the Kenmore Knights of Columbus remains extremely happy with the performance of ElastoFloor Roll-Pour. They know that their members will continue to enjoy the benefits of their gymnasium flooring for years to come.
