Prevent problems associated with thermal expansion.
ArmorDeck is the most comprehensively engineered system designed to handle the rigors of event, concert, and stadium use.
Patented Expansion Joint Panels
Plastic flooring will expand and contract when exposed to changes in temperature and this "thermal expansion" can cause plastic floor tiles to warp, buckle, or even separate. ArmorDeck's HDPE construction contains UV inhibitors and other additives to protect the panels from the sun, but when panels expand even a fraction of an inch, the cumulative expansion across a large area can cause significant distortion or impede the installation process. These irregularities can present dangerous and unsightly conditions for your staff.
Signature's ArmorDeck is the only large panel modular flooring system with an available expansion joint designed to compensate for the thermal expansion that can occur when a floor is subjected to varying temperatures. These Expansion Joint Modules function like the expansion joints in a bridge or highway and allow the material to contract and expand naturally without warping.
With ArmorDeck Expansion Joints, you can feel confident the ArmorDeck system will be able to handle temperature fluctuation throughout the day and prevent potential warping or buckling, giving you the peace of mind that comes with knowing an engineered solution is in place.

Easy Connection System Allows for Rapid Installation
Unlike other flooring systems, Signature’s ArmorDeck features an integrated connection system which is self-aligning and provides ease of installation and tremendous strength.
Sections are simply laid into place and self-align using Signature’s proprietary hook and loop fastening system, which actually guide panels into place. For added strength, sections may be locked together using Signature’s galvanized steel cam lock system, though in many applications the basic hook and loop system will suffice and the cam need not be engaged.
ArmorDeck is Designed to Handle Heavy Weights The ArmorDeck special event flooring cover is designed to handle heavy weights from vehicles, forklifts, and other moving loads and is the ideal choice for both front of house and back stage areas. Combine ArmorDeck versions for the ultimate integrated special event flooring system. For example, it is possible to combine ArmorDeck 3 (with bottom protection layer) with ArmorDeck 1 (aeration version) to create a uniform, fully connected floor for all event areas.
ArmorDeck’s galvanized steel cam lock system is stronger than alternate cam lock systems and provides superior strength and long term durability. Its integrated hook and loop system provides additional torsional stability and strength and enables ArmorDeck to handle the heaviest of loads.
Industry Leading Grass Protection Capabilities
Signature’s ArmorDeck features an expansive moisture canopy and bi-directional ribbing system, which distributes weight effectively and allows grass to grow and flourish even during installation.
A translucent version of ArmorDeck is available for better natural grass protection. Sunlight penetrates the protective panels to allow photosynthesis to continue for the duration of the installation, enabling you to leave ArmorDeck on your natural grass longer.
Drainage and aeration holes provide circulation and help keep your natural turf healthy and safe, while small rims surrounding each drainage hole prevent unwanted liquids from penetrating the surface and reaching the ground.
ArmorDeck tiles overlap, providing the ultimate in surface protection and each overlap/underlay combination also incorporates a liquid capture channel which prevents unwanted liquids from flowing through the seam and onto the protected surface.
All underside ribbing features a radius edge that eliminates any sharp edges and provides additional peace of mind when traversing heavier payloads over the floor.
Optional circular feet provide additional height and clearance while minimizing impact to the grass below. The smooth, rounded edges will not cut the turf, and grass can grow up through the holes.
Staging, speaker towers, and lighting trusses and ballast may be placed on ArmorDeck and the system will provide heavy duty protection.
When you remove your ArmorDeck floor, your grass may actually look better than it did before your installed the flooring. Simply brush your grass after floor removal and unlike other floors, it will be nearly impossible to see any distinguishable pattern resulting from the floor installation.
ArmorDeck Has No Channels or Dirt Catching Surfaces
ArmorDeck is designed to be easy to clean and to require minimal maintenance. Our system avoids surface channels, into which dirt, debris, cigarette butts, or other troublesome garbage can get stuck.
Each panel has an anti-slip sandblast finish that is easy to clean using standard cleaning materials, such as mops, brooms, and water. There are no unsightly patterns or ridges to catch dirt and is uniform and consistent
ArmorDeck is Manufactured Using the Highest Quality Materials
Each ArmorDeck panel is expertly manufactured using the finest High Density Plastic (HDPE) materials, which are reinforced with additives for added strength, flex modulus, and izod impact value. A 5-year UV package is incorporated into the material formulation to prevent degradation and brittleness as a result of prolonged sun exposure.
Our Cam locks are manufactured in galvanized steel vs. plastic, thus providing considerable increased strength and eliminating the need to replace broken cams.
