Medium-Duty Portable Flooring System Synthetic Turf, Track & Arena Protection
Each UltraDeck 2 module is 24″ x 12″ x 1-1/8″
UltraDeck 2 (EDU2) is a modular medium-duty natural turf protection system. It is designed to offer a greater level of protection, rigidity, and weight loading capability than Signature’s EventDeck 1 system. This product is ideal for applications where equipment, light vehicles, pneumatic tire forklifts and generally more traffic is expected.
UltraDeck can also be used for temporary accessways or pathways on rough and uneven terrain. EDU2 is rugged enough to stage trailers, equipment and utility vehicles. 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 2 creates a smooth, elegant surface for any size tent event
UltraDeck modules are significantly larger in size and thickness than our general purpose EventDeck and EDU2’s wall thickness, surface thickness and connector size have been increased substantially to make EDU2 more robust and heavier duty.
Each UltraDeck 2 module is 24” x 12” x 1-1/8” and ships in pre-assembled 3’ x 4’ sheets for quicker installs and dismantles.
UltraDeck 2 offers superior synthetic turf protection
UltraDeck 2 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.
UltraDeck 2 covers large areas in a snap while providing ultra protection
UltraDeck portable flooring is ideal for use over all types of synthetic turf – both mono and duo-filament 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. UltraDeck can also be used over dirt tracks and horse arenas, or over concrete or asphalt.
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.
EDU2 is quick and simple to install without tools or other equipment
UltraDeck protects grass and turf with a clean attractive floor during concerts and on-field events.
Installation is quick and does not require trained personnel, special tools or an instruction manual. A full-size 80,000 sq/ft stadium can be installed in 4-6 hours using 20 workers.
Modules can be connected in both directions and at any module connection point, including at a 90 degree angle – allowing for maximum flexibility in floor design. The underside of the module features a specially designed multi-directional cable channel to neatly thread power and communication wiring and rope lighting.
Create a flat, lay down floor with UltraDeck 2
UltraDeck is engineered to provide the ultimate protection for your turf during events
The system is meant as a true substitute for lay down and built-up plywood floors. It provides a rigid and uniform feel underfoot that is suitable for upscale, high-end events.
Unlike other modular plastic floors, UltraDeck can be laid straight down on most ground surfaces, leveled with plywood stringers and shims, or raised on multiple layers of stringers as required.
By raising UltraDeck on 2″ x 6″ or 2″ x 8″ plywood boards (stringers), it is possible to create a perfectly level, raised floor. Use standard plywood stringers spaced one (1) foot on center. Additional layers of stringers may be used to raise UltraDeck even further off the ground. Shims may be used to level stringers and the floor.
UltraDeck accommodates cables and wires.
UltraDeck is ideal for pole tents, frame tents, and clearspan structures. It provides an attractive and event-friendly look, which often doesn’t need to be covered with carpet.
When placed on level ground or on plywood stringers, UltraDeck can support the weight of scissor lifts, forklifts with pneumatic tires, and light trucks. This makes UltraDeck ideal for larger tents, where equipment is required for the hanging of lighting, placement of decorations, and transport of equipment.
With the ability to be raised off of the ground, UltraDeck is a true substitute to costly wood. Unlike wood, it will not warp, get waterlogged, or rot. Additionally, with UltraDeck there is no need to use dangerous screws or nails as modules self connect and do not need to be screwed down to the plywood stringers.
UltraDeck modules are simple to install and do not require tools or trained personnel.
As with EventDeck, carpet and Astroturf may be stapled directly to UltraDeck for more upscale and formal events.
UltraDeck is simple to clean and maintain. Damaged sections are easily removed and replaced. This product’s superior engineering puts it at the forefront of quality, performance, ease of installation and affordability.
Industry-Leading Expansion Joint
Use plywood stringers under UltraDeck when a levelable floor is required.
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 UltraDeck 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 UltraDeck expansion module is designed to accommodate natural expansion.
For a more formal look, staple artificial turf or carpet directly to UltraDeck.
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.
The UltaDeck Expansion Joint is designed to accommodate natural expansion caused by thermal fluxuation.
