Signature’s OmniDeck LD Available for Events, Business Reopenings

By Signature Systems on Jun 5, 2020 4:40:00 PM

DALLAS, Texas — June 5, 2020 — Signature Systems’ newest and fastest-installing lightweight ground protection product OmniDeck™ LD is now available, just in time for the outdoor events season and summer businesses looking to expand their footprints to allow for social distancing.

OmniDeck™ LD brings a new level of lightweight protection and efficient setup with the unique ability to install in any direction, increasing user safety and return on investment while reducing labor costs.

Creative applications to keep customers and eventgoers safe (and out of the mud) include:

  • Festivals and events in outdoor spaces
  • Tent or temporary structure flooring
  • Mobile health clinics or testing centers
  • Expanded outdoor restaurant seating or shopping options
  • Pedestrian walkways and platforms
  • Temporary roadways for light construction traffic at schools, universities
  • Indoor and outdoor stadium turf protection
  • Drive-in movies and concerts at parks, stadiums, school, worship center grounds and more

OmniDeck™ LD shares many of the key benefits of the heavy-duty OmniDeck™ ground protection system released in 2019. It offers the same connection design and is compatible, including the secure and user-friendly built-in locks. Signature Product Engineer Eric Parks said, “To keep grass and stadium turf healthy, it’s lighter offering more sunlight and water penetration per square foot than competitive products.”

Key benefits:

  • Built-in safety features protect people and equipment
  • OmniDeck™ LD’s connection design allows for speedy deployment and the ability to build around obstacles in north, south, east and west directions simultaneously
  • Protect grass or sensitive surfaces from pressure points or friction, supporting weights of 200 psi/28,800 psf; compatible with OmniDeck™’s 600 psi/86,400 psf protection
  • Lightweight (36 lbs./16.3 kg.), stackable panels reduce overhead costs through transportation and storage efficiencies

“OmniDeck™ LD is designed with a focus on safety. It provides superior protection for people and equipment, and is the premier product for grass, natural turf and sensitive surfaces,” says Travis Parkinson, who specializes in ground protection solutions at Signature Systems. “The efficiency of the design is ideal for indoor or outdoor use, and we see significant savings for installations in both time and labor costs.”

Puskás Arena Positioned for World-Class Events with New Turf Protection from Signature Systems

By Signature Systems on Jun 3, 2020 4:37:00 PM

DARLINGTON, U.K. — June 3, 2020 — Hungary’s new 65,000-seat national stadium, Puskás Aréna in Budapest, opened late last year and is one of 12 stadiums that will host the UEFA EURO 2020 tournament—proposed to start in June 2021. UEFA recently announced the new stadium would be the location of the men’s 2022 Europa League Final.

Not only is the home of the Hungarian national football team now welcoming prestigious sporting events, but it’s also purchased 10,000 square meters (107,639 square feet) of industry-leading turf protection with an eye on hosting global concerts and public events.

Tony Booth, Signature Systems’ Director of UK & EMEA, consulted with stadium officials in offering the strong and fast-installing OmniDeck™ turf protection system to safeguard its long-term investment. Signature launched the innovative composite system in summer 2019 with significant success, including numerous U.S. sales in the National Football League, Major League Baseball and other world-class stadiums, including Arthur Ashe Stadium, home of the U.S. Open. OmniDeck™ is explicitly engineered with ambitious stadiums like Puskás in mind.

Intuitive and fast installation, through an innovative universal-attachment design, save labour costs and support the quick turnarounds needed to go from national sports to events and back again in record time. OmniDeck™’s dependable strength protects the turf while setting up equipment, staging and high-tech screens to turn every seat into a front-row experience.

“They wanted to have huge flexibility and to cover the turf with a driveable system to allow promoters and production companies the flexibility for massive staging and infrastructure in the arena,” Booth says. “They purchased OmniDeck™ to protect the full stadium for a future of events to safely unite the community and bring international prestige to the arena and country.”

About Signature Systems
Signature Systems manufactures and distributes composite matting for industrial applications, ground protection for stadium turf protection and temporary event flooring. Its leading global event brands include OmniDeck™, OmniDeck™ LD, EventDeck® and SignaRoad® with leading industrial products MegaDeck®, SignaRoad® and DuraDeck®.

Signature Systems Introduces OmniDeck™ LD at STMA Conference

By Signature Systems on Jan 14, 2020 4:10:00 PM

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA — January 14, 2020 — Signature Systems, at the Sports Turf Managers 31st Annual Conference & Exhibition this week, announces its new product OmniDeck™ LD and offers a sneak peek at Booth #438.

“Our customers asked for an innovative approach to stadium turf protection that meets their demands for safety, lightweight strength, quick event turnovers and revenue generation over the life of the product,” says Jason Frew, Signature’s Vice President of Sales. “We’ve met the challenge and are excited to share the unique benefits of OmniDeck™ LD with the world’s leading stadium and turf managers at STMA.”

OmniDeck™ LD, a light-duty stadium turf protection system, shares many of the key benefits of its heavy duty next-generation turf protection product OmniDeck™, released in June to help global stadium venues make the most of the booming live events trend as concerts, festivals and esports tournaments draw more crowds and revenue.

It brings a new level of lightweight protection and efficient setup with the unique ability to install in any direction. OmniDeck™ LD is easy on natural turf yet durable and strong enough to protect stadiums’ most valuable player — their sports turf or playing surface.

OmniDeck™ LD connects seamlessly with OmniDeck™ turf protection system.

Key benefits:

  • OmniDeck™ LD’s interlocking flange connection design allows for speedy deployment and the ability to build around obstacles in north, south, east and west directions simultaneously
  • Protect turf from pressure points or friction, supporting weights of 200 psi/28,800 psf; compatible with OmniDeck™’s 600 psi/86,400 psf protection for a total stadium solution
  • Lightweight (36 lbs./16.3 kg.), stackable panels reduce stadium overhead costs through greater transportation and storage efficiencies
  • Built-in safety features protect people and equipment

OmniDeck™ LD offers the same innovative layout design as OmniDeck™, and is compatible with that system, including the secure and user-friendly built-in locks, Signature Product Engineer Eric Parks says. “It’s lighter with more aeration, offering more light and water transmission and penetration per square foot than its competitors.”

Its main applications are pedestrian walkways and platforms for lighter traffic events on natural or synthetic turf. STMA attendees can demo the system and compare weight, aeration and light transmission with Signature’s other stadium products.

About Signature Systems
Signature Systems engineers, manufactures and distributes composite ground protection systems for stadium turf protection, temporary event flooring and industrial and construction applications. Its leading global brands include OmniDeck™, OmniDeck™ LD, ArmorDeck®, DuraDeck®, EventDeck®, MegaDeck® and SignaRoad®.

MegaDeck® HD is Ideal Solution for Beachfront Music Festival

By Signature Systems on May 25, 2016 10:13:08 AM

The Alabama Hangout Festival has been a big name in the ever-popular music festival scene since its first occurrence in 2010. Held right on the beach front of Gulf Shores, the Alabama Hangout Festival is a popular destination to kick off the summer for music enthusiasts and beach bums alike. The festival continues to grow every year and, as such, so has the need for bigger and better equipment. Larger amps, heavier stages, more and more attractions. It was posing a problem for the event coordinators, as the unstable, sandy shoreline proved hard to work on. Primarily in the transportation and installation of materials by heavy trucks and vehicles.
