Its 3:30 pm on a sleepy Friday afternoon in the company call center/technical services division. I’m surfing the news section of the corporate website: an egghead discussion of the evolution of concrete, some guy cringing over his kid sliding around the gym on a lousy vinyl composition tile floor, and other various discussions. I have been assigned to answer phone calls on the Gym Floor Helpline® under the terms of the Performance Improvement Plan I agreed to recently. It’s either answer phone calls and write a summary of my time spent here or serve a 3 day suspension for a 2nd time violati ..read more

It’s a Shame you Can’t Shave your Sports Flooring
Tarkett Sports Blog

On a man’s face, it’s called “five o’clock shadow”. It’s that rough dark stubble of facial hair that may appear on his face in late afternoon, signaling the need for another shave. On some sports flooring, it’s an ongoing problem that even a razor can’t fix! In the sports flooring industry, we adopted the “five o’clock shadow” expression to describe the ugly unsanitary consequence of flooring that has a surface that contains textured grooves, more commonly referring to this texture as linear embossing.
