Ecore, a company that transforms reclaimed materials into performance surfaces that make people’s lives better, now offers a continuing education unit (CEU) focused on the benefits of high-performance flooring for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. The new CEU, titled “High-Performance Flooring for Sports, Recreation and Fitness,” identifies the critical performance needs for flooring in sports, fitness and recreation venues and offers architects and designers guidelines to selecting optimal surfacing for different areas and applications.
Why is it important or significant?
With the increased need for new and remodelled sports, fitness and recreation facilities, special consideration should be given to the foundation of all these spaces: the flooring.
This CEU program covers flooring priorities for the most common athletic applications and how engineered performance surfaces can provide safety, ergonomic, and acoustic benefits that enhance performance and protect athletes and fitness enthusiasts.
Flooring choices for sports, fitness and recreation applications go far beyond price and colour. The right flooring material can actually enhance athletic performance, comfort and enjoyment by absorbing impact, facilitating energy restitution and delivering improved acoustics.
What are the key aspects and what can attendees expect?
After completing this CEU course, attendees will be able to identify the critical needs for performance surfacing in sports, fitness and recreation applications, and understand flooring priorities for the most common athletic and fitness applications. Participants also will gain knowledge on specifying performance flooring for safety, acoustics and ergonomics and receive examples of flooring solutions in a collection of case studies illustrating how advanced flooring benefitted various athletic venues.
The “High-Performance Flooring for Sports, Recreation and Fitness,” by Ecore is registered with The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems. Upon completion of this program, all participants will have their credits reported to AIA & IDCEC.
