NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC TURF PROTECTION SYSTEMS
Stadium Flooring Systems
SUITABLE PRODUCTS FOR NATURAL TURF: EVERBASE 3-DT, EVERROAD
THE ULTIMATE IN STADIUM TURF PROTECTION
Use EverBase 3 DT and EverBase 3 ST flooring to protect sensitive stadium turf from damage due to concerts, festivals and other on-field events.
Rounded edges on the underside of EverBlock flooring prevents bruising of natural turf and protects both natural and synthetic turf from getting cut or damaged.
EverBase’s unique cross ribbing distributes weight effectively across flooring sections, preventing soil compaction, maintaining proper moisture levels, and creating open areas that promote ventilation and water flow. The unique underside design creates a space for grass blades to remain protected from the type of wear and soil compaction that occurs under foot traffic.
With EverBase flooring, thousands of visitors can walk, jump, and dance on the floor, while the turf below remains safe and ready for play.
EverBase is ideal for full field protection against pedestrian traffic, lightweight vehicles, equipment (such as speakers and mixing stations), and rolling concert cases.
In addition to full field protection, use EverBase along sidelines, during play, to prevent wear to the turn and to provide a dry surface for athletes and staff.
EBF3’s Male/Female connection system allows for rapid installation and provides incredible durability and weight loading capabilities.
Using EverBase, your venue can become a truly multi-purpose venue – hosting concerts, graduations, or other on-field events.
Parties and Corporate Events
Monster Truck Events
From large-scale events to small-scale functions, EverBase is ideal for protecting
your expensive natural and synthetic turf surfaces against wear, tear and damage
from pedestrians and equipment.
RAPIDLY INSTALL AND REMOVE SECTIONS FOR QUICK VENUE TURN-OVER
EverBase Flooring transports in 3ft x 4ft panels, allowing for rapid installation by a minimal crew. It takes 20 people 5-6 hours to install a full stadium of flooring, meaning that your venue can be used for sports one day and a concert the next.
For efficient installation, simply transport pallets of EverBase into proximity so that panels can then be placed into position where needed.
Modules connect in a matrix, creating a seamless floor that is both attractive and safe for large audiences. Once installed, your stadium is transformed from a sports facility to a concert or event venue.
Due to EverBase’s unique connector design, sections can be nudged by foot into their connection position and then snapped into place with a simple step.
To remove sections, simply lift EverBase sections up at a 45 degree angle, disengaging the panels for transport and further use.
4 Individual modules are connected to create large 3ft x4ft sheets for rapid installation.
EVERBLOCK DT (DRAINAGE TOP) ALLOWS FOR THE FLOW OF AIR, WATER, VENTILATION AND LIGHT
EverBase 3 DT (Drainage Top) allows for air, water, ventilation and limited light to penetrate, allowing natural grass to continue to grow while the floor is down. By creating a unique, shaded moisture canopy, EverBase DT prevents turf from drying out or burning on hot days.
Circular aeration holes allow limited light to penetrate, providing for some photosynthesis to occur while the flooring is in place.
Aeration holes also provide for air-flow, which is important to minimize the risk of fungal growth while natural grass is covered for longer durations.
Cross ribbing helps to distribute weights and to minimize pressure points that could compact soil or disturb roots systems or grass blades.
EverBase 3 DT can be left down for 3-4 days without significant damage to natural turf.
EVERBASE 3 ST (SOLID TOP) PROTECTS SYNTHETIC TURF AGAINST SPILLS, DIRT, AND DEBRIS
The EverBase ST (Solid Top) has a closed surface design, which minimizes the flow of liquids and debris through the floor, making it ideal for synthetic turf protection.
Larger quantities of water can still flow through the EverBase seams and under the flooring, providing a dry surface for concert-goers or event attendees. Drainage channels allow water to flow underneath the floor to prevent water build-up.
Bi-directional cross ribbing distributes weight effectively, minimizing any pressure points that could shift turf infill (rubber or sand) or cause cutting or damage to the synthetic grass blades.
EverBase 3 ST can be left down indefinitely, protecting synthetic turf as needed for long term events. It can be ordered in multiple colors, to match team or corporate colors and unique floor designs can be created using our 3D virtual builder.
THE EVERBASE3 EXPANSION JOINT
When installing any modular plastic system outdoors, variability in sunlight and temperature will cause natural thermal expansion (during the day and in higher heat conditions) and thermal contraction (at night when there is no sunlight and when things cool down). There can even be variability throughout the day, when clouds obstruct the sun and then clear up.
When a floor expands, it will buckle upwards, causing a wave in the floor. With no-place to go, the extra expansion pushes upwards, creating a potentially serious situation.
This is the “deep dark secret” in the modular flooring business, and a challenge that stadiums and event companies have been dealing with since the emergence of modular turf protection systems. Some people hose down their floor, to cool it down, while others leave open seams and splits in the floor, to allow for expansion.
With the EverBase3 Expansion Joint, there is now a uniquely engineered solution to this serious problem and you will no longer have to fear temperature or weather fluctuations and the effects they have on your floor.
The EBF3-EJ is designed to close during expansion and to open during floor contraction - providing up to 3” of variability.
Depending on your climate and typical weather conditions during your event season, we recommend inserting a line of expansion joints, approximately every 50 feet. When installing each module, adjust it to the half-open position, allowing for your floor to both expand and contract as needed. Once the row is installed, you can continue installing EBF3 standard modules as needed to complete the next section.

DRIVEABLE ROADWAYS OVER STADIUM TURF
When looking to drive heavy vehicles and equipment over your natural or synthetic turf field, we recommend utilizing our EverRoad® heavy duty access mats. These can be loose laid alongside one another or they can be connected using heavy duty metal links. Mats can support weights up to 50,000 lb vehicles and will distribute the weight of tires, staging supports, and other equipment, so that damage to the turf is prevented.
EverRoad is a driveable roadway system for use on soft ground or over natural and synthetic turf
Loose lay mats or connect as needed, using EverRoad links, for longer term or heavier duty use
