EventDeck 1 is a modular temporary flooring and pathway system that provides access, surface protection and decorative enhancement for special events and other functions.

EventDeck portable flooring is a high-impact poly-propylene module that measures 4" x 12". Modules snap together on all sides using our uniquely engineered intermodule connection system. Sections are durable, weather resistant and capable of withstanding extraordinary loads and stresses, including the weight of cars, trucks and forklifts (with pneumatic tires). Modules are available in several colors; custom colors are available upon request.

EventDeck portable flooring is simple to install and does not require special tools or training. Sections can be stored and transported in palletized sheets or rolled up.

Whether you're planning a concert for 60,000 or a wedding for 100, EventDeck portable flooring is the perfect alternative to costly built-up wooden floors, staging and decking. You will also save money on improved speed of installation and reduced long-term maintenance. It's the affordable alternative with all-around superior performance.

EventDeck1 Features:

  • Drainage and ventilation holes that provide air, water and light flow
  • Integrated moisture canopy helps to retain moisture and provides adequate space for grass to live and grow

Each ED1 module contains over 100 specially spaced drainage holes, which allow water to flow through the tread and to the ground below. These holes also provide ventilation, light, and air to the turf below.

ED1 will distribute weight and help prevent damage to your grass from pedestrians and equipment. Depending on the duration of your event, it is possible to water turf through EventDeck, keeping grass hydrated and nourished.

It is ideal for large events on sensitive grass lawns and fields, around pool and wet areas and for other outdoor flooring applications. This version may also be used on sand, soil, and other surfaces where drainage holes may be preferred over the smooth top surface design of ED2.

EventDeck 1 (ED1) portable flooring is designed specifically for grass protection and for areas where a drainage top design is preferred.

Easy Installation

EventDeck installs easily without tools or trained personnell. Simply roll out pre-assembled sections and snap together using our proprietary hinge-joint.

Tents and Special Events

Use EventDeck portable flooring for tent flooring and other special events. It is particularly suited for tent rental companies as it offers a high ROI and a 4-5 rental payback.

Both ED1 & ED2 are ideal as stand alone floors or as a sub floor for carpet or turf. Staple or tape carpet and synthetic turf right to EventDeck for the ultimate event flooring combination. Use it as a base for chairs, tables, and dance floors over grass, mud, dirt, asphalt, gravel, or other typical event venue surfaces.

Another tent rental use for ED1 is as a base for cleaning tents, fabrics and other equipment. Dirty water flows easily through the floor’s drainage holes and away from the material being cleaned. There’s no back up of water, and tent tops and side walls get cleaner and stay cleaner.

Stadiums and Natural Turf Facilities

EventDeck is used in some of the most prestigious stadiums and arenas throughout the world.

From Bermuda grass and Rye to from Bluegrass and hybrid combinations, ED1 is the right choice for your expensive playing surfaces and sports fields. EventDeck portable flooring may be left down for several days for concerts, graduations, and other on-field events.

EventDeck 1 Protects Natural Grass

EventDeck 1 was engineered to minimize lateral flex and to distribute weight evenly across its support beams and ribbing. This helps prevent the floor from digging into the turf, even under heavy weight.

Hidden under the top of each floor module’s surface is a specially designed canopy, which is constructed to both retain moisture and allow for the right amount of light, water, and air to reach the grass underneath.

ED1 can be left in place for many days without killing the grass and is designed to prevent damage from strong sunlight and heat.

When EventDeck is in place it is not unusual for customers to find their grass is actually greener after a few days use as a result of the greenhouse like conditions created by the EventDeck canopy. During long installations, blades of grass can be found poking out of each module's drainage holes, continuing to grow even as the floor is in place.

Industry-Leading Expansion Joint

All plastic flooring materials will expand and contract during fluctuating temperature conditions. In plastic modular floors, this “thermal expansion” phenomenon can result in floors warping, buckling, disconnecting or otherwise becoming uneven.

Only Signature Flooring’s EventDeck offers an engineered expansion joint module to accommodate the thermal expansion that can occur during varying temperature conditions. Like an expansion joint in a bridge, building, or highway, the EventDeck expansion module is designed to accommodate natural expansion.

Until the development of the EventDeck Expansion Module (ED-XJ), event managers, concert promoters, stadium managers, groundskeepers and others involved in the production of concerts or other on-field events simply had to accept the inconvenient condition of thermal expansion at outdoor events as unavoidable.

With ED-XJ organizers can feel comfortable knowing that the EventDeck system will be able to handle temperature fluctuation throughout the day and night, avoiding potential warping or buckling and giving you the peace of mind that an engineered solution is in place.
