Project Description

When it came time to retire the aging carpet in the Dixon Fitness Center, Cabrini College Assistant Director of Recreation Orlin Jespersen was confident in his replacement choice.

Regupol America provided Jespersen with the best products for his facility – Regupol® AktivPro™ and Regupol® AktivLok™. Combining the durability, sustainability, and ease-of-maintenance he needed, Regupol products were the perfect fit for the project.

"Carpet just didn't make sense," Jesperson said. "It was difficult to keep clean, and any spills or leaks caused damage. We also needed a tougher floor that could handle dropped weights and major stress."

For a school with a demanding sports program and hundreds of students using the fitness center daily, a better solution was desperately needed. The installation of Regupol AktivPro and Regupol AktivLok minimized maintenance issues, allowing the college to focus on providing a top-notch training facility to students and the community.

Jespersen chose a custom order of Blue Blitz AktivLok and standard Gray Ghost AktivPro for the facility. Before any tiles were installed, the existing carpet was removed. Regupol tiles were then laid directly atop the sub-floor without underlayment, allowing for easy and quick installation. Loose-laid in an offset pattern, the new and improved floor looks great and provides the high shock absorption associated with Regupol products.

"The overall look is working out really well, as all of the equipment is blue and gray, matching the new floor. It is much cleaner and much more polished looking," Jespersen added. "We would definitely use Regupol again, and are extremely happy with the results."

Specified Products

Regupol America Regupol® AktivPro™

A modular tile with a dual personality, Regupol AktivPro uses a prefabricated wear layer and multilayer molding system that ensures factory precision. This composite product consists of 100% recycled SBR rubber backing and is topped with a recycled SBR or EPDM wear layer.

Regupol AktivPro drives athletes to move faster and push harder. With a unique waffle-bottom design that provides ideal shock absorption, drainage, and cable routing, AktivPro manages it all. Its extra thick, unique composite structure is super durable and has outstanding wear resistance that stands up to the toughest battles.

AktivPro includes a patented strengthening layer atop its waffle-bottom. This layer offers additional protection and minimizes bounce back, making AktivPro the best solution for all weightlifting areas.

Regupol America Regupol® AktivLok™

Regupol AktivLok interlocking rubber floor tiles have a fit so precise, the seams are virtually invisible. Like Regupol Aktiv, AktivLok goes well beyond “fitness for purpose” when it comes to sports flooring, and in every space in the facility. Thousands of miles of AktivLok have been manufactured using state of the art equipment, the cleanest raw materials, and the most consistent color infusion.

AktivLok offers streamlined installation, with all the strength and durability of Regupol Aktiv. A less permanent surface solution, interlocking AktivLok tiles are installed easily and can be quickly removed and repurposed.
