The latest products can be personalized to promote a certain business or team with custom-printed logos and brand-related designs. Portfolios of previously completed custom projects are available to browse on the company website.

The Eco-Roll has been designed for portability with a non-skid backing that stops moisture from leaking through, keeping the floor beneath clean and dry. Moreover, the compact, lay-up racking system ensures it can be stored effectively while not in use. It was produced using environmentally-conscious techniques, including a 100% recycled, absorbent top layer that wicks away moisture.

The Eco-Roll has anti-microbial properties that prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. The patented silver and copper ion technology is EPA-registered and is safe for users and for the environment.

Similarly, the Eco-Tiles flooring system comes with adhesive tabs that prevent slippage and allow for easy set-up. Each tile weighs 8.2 lbs, making it one of the most lightweight floor covers on the market. It is available in 18 by 20 inch and 30 by 36 inch sizes which can be configured to fit any sports hall or gym. The tiles are comprised of recycled plastic bottles and have a class 1 fire rating.
