Custom Color, Custom Design in Rubber Safety Surfaces
C and M Concrete Creates Custom Rubber Flooring for St. Louis Rams Training Academy
Chesterfield, MO — The familiar logo of the St. Louis Rams is now embedded into the flooring at the St. Louis Rams Training Academy in Chesterfield, MO, thanks to a specialized rubber safety surfacing product that is slip resistant yet customizable.
The product, a poured-in-place polymer resin and granular rubber material, is installed much like concrete, by hand troweling. It is offered by C and M Concrete, a St. Louis-area concrete contractor, as part of its new rubber safety surfacing division.
C and M Concrete, based in St. Louis, MO, is a specialist in all types of concrete services. The owner, Matt Sadl, and his team are specially trained and certified to install the poured rubber safety surfacing material. Because the product is fluid, it can be manipulated into a myriad of design possibilities.
“We can take a logo or a custom design and create it directly in the rubber safety surfacing,” says Sadl. “The rubber also comes in a wide variety of colors so that we can typically match any logo or design created.”
The flexibility of the rubber safety surfacing means that beautiful works of art can be incorporated into a flooring surface that also is crafted to reduce the risk of slips and falls. The rubber surfacing material can be used indoors or out. It is especially effective for use around swimming pool decks and playgrounds because the material also minimizes heat retention in outdoor settings.
C and M is the sole distributor of a specialized “poured in place” polymer resin and granular rubber composite material called Rubaroc®. The material can be hand-troweled over the top of existing concrete, tile or wood surfaces. Because the final surface provides high traction, and is slip-resistant and comfortable, these types of rubber safety coatings can be used in both residential and commercial settings.
Common uses for rubber safety surfaces include:
• Pool decks
• Garage or Basement interiors
• Retail floors
• Playgrounds and Water Parks
• Childcare facilities
• Country Clubs
C and M has the distributorship for Rubaroc® for the entire state of Missouri and parts of southern Illinois.
