Cover Mate II
The CoverMate II storage rack helps prevent creases on the gym floor cover since it’s rolled, not folded. CoverMate II has non marking casters, maneuverable turning functionality, adjustable parts, foot lock, outriggers, optional protective cover for easy and clean storage, and compact size to store in limited space locations and fit through the standard single door. Covermate is manufactured in North America unlike competitive floor cover handling systems.
With its many new floor cover handling and safety aspects, CoverMate II incorporates leading edge design that makes it the easiest-to-use cover installation, removal and storage system. Ease of handling and Safety 1st were central to its development. Thanks to professional engineering and the use of premium, stronger components, CoverMate II lifts gym floor cover handling to a whole new level of safety, convenience and durability.
Most innovative are the castered outriggers that, when extended, eliminate the chance of tipping during use. It is also much easier to move about thanks to two extra load bearing casters for a total of six, two of which are offset for more even weight distribution on hardwood floors. Other notable features are a separate floor locking brake, nylon roller bearing brackets, improved cover roller clips and an eye-pleasing tubular frame. Without a doubt, CoverMate II brings gym floor cover handling to a whole new level of safety and convenience.
Extendable Safety Outriggers
The bright orange outriggers are key to the safety aspect of CoverMate II. In their extended position it is virtually impossible for the system to be tipped over. And because the outriggers run on their own casters, CoverMate II can be moved about the gym with ease.
Powder Coated Tubular Frame
CoverMate II gets its robust strength from the rectangular frame made from 1 1/2" and 2" tubular steel. Powder coated in a rich silvery color, the entire system is as pleasing to the eye as it is outstanding in its performance and ease of use.
Each of the six Colson brand casters on CoverMate II feature 3/4” thick non-marking Santoprene® SofTreads which are designed specifically for hardwood gymnasium floors. These noiseless, smooth running treads are a key feature of the precision engineered, ball bearing casters. Competitive casters are less then half the thickness of CoverMate II’s.
The patented, rubber mounted, polycarbonate roller brackets feature Delrin roller bearings. Their smooth action allows each cover section to roll on and off CoverMate II with a minimum of effort. A safety bolt prevents roller 'pop-ups' during cover removal while not interfering with the free turning of the roller.
CoverMate II comes with two portable hand cranks. These one-piece cranks are made of incredibly strong Lexan polycarbonate for heavy duty use. The long slotted mouthpiece fits snugly into the roller for a secure fit and positive cranking action. If dropped accidentally, it will not damage hardwood floors.
The specially molded, push-on QuickClips are made of flexible plastic to avoid possible injury. The plastic clips quickly attach the cover sections to their rollers. Just hold the cover against the roller, then slide the clip down and over until it locks in place. The cover is now ready to be rolled back up.
Custom engineered, this patent pending, foot operated anchoring device locks CoverMate II in place. Simply push the square pedal down to lock. To unlock, just step on the release. There are two foot locks, one on either end. No need to search for caster brakes, as the locks are bolted to the frame.
Each cover roller is fitted with a yellow safety collar to prevent sideways movement of the roller. The collar also guards against the possibility that fingers get caught in between the roller and the bracket. Note the safety bolt above the roller that prevents roller 'pop-up' during use.
Ultima Series CoverClean
This patented assembly of two opposing brushes sweeps debris and dust from both sides of the cover as you wind it up for storage. Simply feed the cover between the two brushes before you attach it to its roller. Each brush consists of two rows of 3" bristles. One row for fine sweeping, the other for heavy debris.
