Project: St. John’s Jesuit High School
Location: Toledo, OH
Installed: 3,600 sqft of AktivPRO tile with AktivPRO roll inlaid platforms and 1,800 sqft of Aktiv Roll
Installer: SPEC Athletics
St. John’s Jesuit wanted to totally rehabilitate their weight room facility with new equipment and a first class, performance flooring system. They looked to SPEC Athletic for 3,600 square feet of AktivPRO Tile with AktivPRO Roll inlaid platforms for their weight lifting area and 1,800 square feet of Aktiv Roll for their cardio area. What they got was a beautiful and durable floor system that will withstand the labor of Titan athletes.
St. John’s Jesuit had vulcanized rubber flooring for years. Vulcanized floor notoriously dent in the impact areas and become hard to clean. That is what happened at St. John’s, so they installed black recycled rubber over their existing flooring in the dumbbell pit to protect it and to ease the impact from dropping dumbbells from the bench. SPEC installed our Aktiv Weight Room system right over the existing rubber, so there was no need for the school to pay for removal and disposal of the old flooring. SPEC then installed Regupol’s 12” wide ADA ramps between the cardio area and the weight room to make a smooth transition from the 8mm Aktiv flooring up to the 1” weight room flooring.
Aktiv Pro Tile gave St. John’s the performance they wanted, but the tiles would break up the graphic that they chose for the inlays. The solution was to install Aktiv Pro Roll inlays with Crash drop zones. This gave them superior performance and a professional, seamless appearance.
