Home News Ecore offers performance flooring CEU

sportsLancaster, Pa.—Ecore is offering 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, according to the company.

“The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with continuous improvements in sports-related equipment, has led to a surge in interest in health and a booming fitness and wellness market,” said Bo Barber, executive vice president of sales and marketing, Ecore. “With the increased need for new and remodeled sports, fitness and recreation facilities, special consideration should be given to the foundation of all these spaces: the flooring.”

According to the company, the 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 color,” Barber said. “The right flooring material can actually enhance athletic performance, comfort and enjoyment by absorbing impact, facilitating energy restitution and delivering improved acoustics.”

After completing the 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 applications, according to Ecore. Through a collection of case studies, participants will also gain knowledge on specifying performance flooring for safety, acoustics and ergonomics and receive examples of solutions, the company added.

The CEU is registered with The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems. Upon completion of the program, all participants will have their credits reported to AIA & IDCEC, Ecore said.
