Floorbox, the new online temporary flooring hub, specified and supplied 650sq m of Rola-Trac’s iTrac pitch protection to Allianz Park stadium ahead of Jewish community event Yom HaShoah.
Home to European Rugby Champions Saracens, the £1m Allianz Park pitch combines hardcore, aggregate and carpet with rubber infill. Significant weights applied directly can cause the aggregate to bulge while the top layer, a fibre composite, has to stay upright to prevent it causing friction burns to players.
With a big LED screen and a heavy stage coming in for Yom HaShoah, the Remembrance Day for victims of the Holocaust, iTrac was the perfect means to maintain the surface.
John Davy, Founder/Managing Director of Floorbox, says: “We work with a range of manufacturers and the core value of Floorbox is its independence. So our advice, qualified by years of experience, is impartial and our goal is to help clients get the right product for the job and get the best out it.
“i-Trac is a quick and easy system to use. It’s equally effective on hard or soft ground, it’s incredibly strong and provides proper protection for Saracens’ state-of-the-art pitch.”
Stadium Director, Richard Gregg, comments: “Allianz Park is a great stage for all sorts of events, inside and out. Looking after the playing surface is of paramount importance of course and I was delighted with the Floorbox solution ahead of Yom HaShoah. The i-Trac will serve us very well going forward too.”
Built to serve the community rather than simply Saracens, Allianz Park hosts athletics competitions, fun runs, NFL training days and a spread of cultural events alongside the European Champions’ 16 home games a season.
