Facility renovations are essential and inevitable for any building. In 2010, Lucille Roberts decided to perform substantial upgrades to its existing fitness facilities in the Tri-State area with a focus on installing flooring that provided its fitness enthusiasts the benefits of present day flooring engineering.

As a local sports flooring manufacturer with established relationships with fitness chains, SignaSports™ partnered with Lucille to manage the project. At the time, carpet blanketed each facility, from the aerobic rooms to the fitness areas. While carpet does have its advantages and is appropriate for specific applications, Signature and Lucille agreed that the aerobic room, being the focal point for many facilities, had to be removed and improved. Not only was the carpet’s condition deteriorating, but the carpet over its lifespan lacked any cushion comfort and became increasingly difficult to maintain and clean.

Taking into consideration the scope of activities and Lucille’s budget, the installation of SignaFlexTM resilient athletic surfacing seemed to be an appropriate fit. Not only would SignaFlex TM provide the shock absorption necessary to mitigate stress on the joints, but it was easy to clean and maintain, provided a wood look surface, and did not exceed the budget Lucille Roberts had outlined. The wood grain would provide a great aesthetic to incoming clientele and it would perform even better. For the fitness areas, the choice was easy: RubberDeck. A durable, cushioned rubber floor was the perfect choice to sustain equipment loads and the impact from free weights.

Since the facilities were undergoing renovations, Signature Sports installation crews did not have leveled, concrete slabs with which to work. Rather, our crews confronted a myriad of site conditions that changed dramatically from site to site and ranged from substrates that required little to no preparation to the fabrication of plywood subfloors. Fortunately for Lucille, Signature has seen it all. With each fitness facility, Signature worked closely with Lucille on the selection of products, designing the overall layout (which incorporated the use of RubberDeck, SignaFlex, and commercial carpet), and noting the varying site conditions.

Presently, due to successful installations and a collaborative relationship, the partnership between Lucille Roberts and Signature continues and with every successful renovation moving forward, Signature and Lucille will improve the fitness world through better quality products and better service.
