The Logical Choice for All your Stadium Flooring
UltraDeck 2 is Signature's medium duty synthetic turf protection system. It is designed to offer a greater level of protection, rigidity, and weight loading capability than Signature's EventDeck 2 system. This product is ideal for applications where equipment, light vehicles, pneumatic tire forklifts and generally more traffic is expected. UltraDeck modules are significantly larger in size and thickness (1ft x 2ft) than the general purpose EventDeck and its wall thickness, surface thickness and connector size has been increased substantially to make EDU2 more robust and heavier duty.
The UltraDeck 2 system has been used at numerous synthetic turf facilities worldwide, including large soccer facilities, football facilities and all types of venues. The product has proven itself through repeated use as a trade show floor, special event floor, and concert floor, and due to its heavy duty construction has even been used by the U.S. military worldwide as tent and compound flooring.
UltraDeck portable flooring is ideal for use over both mono and duo-filament synthetic turf and can also be used for both rubber and sand in-fill fields. EDU2 is perfect for turf manufactured by all of the industry leaders, including FieldTurf, Sportexe, Astroturf, Mondo, and others.
We understand how synthetic turf is manufactured and have designed our systems to minimize wear, surface abrasion, surface and base compaction, and contamination of the turf and the infill as a result of attendee traffic. EDU's underside channels are contoured to eliminate sharp edges and to prevent possible damage to sensitive turf.
Each UltraDeck 2 module incorporates bi-lateral, heavy duty, cross ribbing for effective weight distribution. EDU2 has thicker ribs, distributed in an optimal pattern to provide additional stability and to prevent "cookie cutting" of your turf under heavier weights. There are no round pressure pads or other concentrated surfaces that can cause in-fill compaction.
An entire 80,000 sq/ft (7,432 sqm) stadium field surface can be deployed in 4-6 hours with about 20 people and can be removed in about 5 hours using 16 people. This rapid turnaround time enables UltraDeck to be deployed after the field is in use and shortly before the upcoming on-field event.
Because EDU2 modules are pre-assembled into larger transportable panels, transport is easy and each person can lift a complete 3ft x 4ft section for placement into position. This time efficient, one-man design enables complete flexibility in team size and allocation and allows even smaller teams to complete a project, albeit over a longer period of time. For example, if a team of 10 people vs. 20 people is used to install a full stadium, it will take about 9-13 hours to install a complete stadium sized floor.
The UltraDeck 2 system is designed to be easily installed without the use of tools. It is completely expandable and may be configured as required on-site. Pre-assembled sections can be packed compactly and efficiently for easy transport and storage. UltraDeck 2's size allows for it to be transported and stored on standard shipping pallets, making the system efficient for transport between facilities.
Each UltraDeck module connects using a robust inter-module connection system that enables tiles to be snapped into place in both directions and allows larger sections to be transported as a single sheet or panel.
Signature's specially designed connector T utilizes a unique tubular design that serves as both a connector and a fully functional hinge. This design allows the entire floor to contour to the field as needed to accommodate "crowned" fields and other surface imperfections or variations or to be rolled as needed, yet is robust enough to handle heavy weights, equipment, and traffic.
Because of the unique shape of each module, EDU2 may be positioned easily using ones feet only, eliminating the need to bend over, use hands, or any employ any tools.
Each individual flooring section is gently curved on the male connector side and correspondingly curved on the female side, such that when a section is butted up against another, it naturally wants to self-position for snap down connection. A simple nudge may be used to help position each section into place, making this system extraordinarily fast to install.
All plastic flooring materials will expand and contract during fluctuating temperature conditions. This phenomenon of thermal expansion is a result of the nuclear expansion within the plastic and is a natural property of all plastic materials (and many other materials as well). In plastic modular floors, expansion can result in floors warping, buckling, disconnecting or otherwise becoming uneven.
Only Signature Flooring 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 UltraDeck Expansion Module (EDU-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 EDU-XJ organizers can feel comfortable knowing that the UltraDeck 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.

UltraDeck was specifically engineered to provide optimal synthetic grass protection during your on-field events and to minimize wear and tear.
- Bi-lateral, extra thick ribbing for greater structural stability, weight loading, and infill shift prevention.
- A unique distributed rib pattern design that minimizes concentrated surface contact and prevents matting of the turf.
- Cross module drainage channels to prevent water buildup (allow normal field water flow and drainage during rainy conditions).
- No large circular support pads (avoids deep depressions, "cookie cutting" and patterns in the field and infill post removal).
- Integrated ventilation between sections and throughout the system (proper ventilation helps prevent mold, fungus, and other bacteria from propagating).
- A solid surface without holes keeps contaminants off of your turf and out of your infill.
Simply brush your synthetic turf after floor removal and unlike older floors it will be nearly impossible to see any distinguishable pattern resulting from the floor installation. UltraDeck 2 is designed to prevent shifting of infill and of the flooring.
We believe in treating the turf at your facility with the utmost care and respect. We understand each facilitiy's unique needs and the importance of maintaining your significant investment in your facility´s turf.
Each UltraDeck 2 module is manufactured using a high quality co-polymer plastic material that has a high izod impact value and specific no-break characteristics. A 5 year UV package is incorporated into the material formulation to prevent brittleness over time as a result of sun exposure. High ethylene content provides flexure and prevents cracking.
As a result of Signature's quality material formulation, each UltraDeck floor is able to resist the rigors of regular use and will not break, crack, fade or become brittle. It has proven itself worldwide in all climates and conditions.
With UltraDeck 2 there is no worry of broken plastic parts on your field or loose clips, cams, or other pieces that could pose safety hazards to players or visitors.
EDU2 has no submerged channels into which food, debris, cigarette butts, or other troublesome garbage can be lodged. Each section has an anti-slip sandblast finish that is easy to clean using a mop and is elegant and attractive. UltraDeck 2 has no unsightly patterns to catch dirt and as such is the lowest maintenance system available.
Each UltraDeck 2 module is similar to UltraDeck 1, except that there are no drainage/ventilation holes. This provides additional protection for synthetic turf and prevents dirt and debris from going through the floor.
This feature is important as synthetic turf fields cannot regenerate like natural turf fields and cannot absorb and break down waste and other materials like natural turf.
