Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Newfield, NJ needed to resurface their failing gym floor. They turned to Abacus to provide them with an effective way to receive a new gym floor feel and look without the new gym floor cost. Our Lady of Mercy Academy was founded by the Daughters of Our Lady Mercy as a preparatory, all-girls Catholic high school in 1962. The school grounds encompass a vast 57 acres that include academic buildings, sports fields, a chapel, a gym, and an indoor pool.
The urethane resurface is done by prepping the old floor with a deep cleaning and sanding regimen. Once the floor is prepped with other propitiatory measures, the new urethane is poured over the existing. Installers will then paint the game lines on after the urethane has cured. Resurfacing an old gym floor like the one at Our Lady of Mercy allows for organizations to keep their athletic facilities up to date.
The court is now prepared for normal recreational sporting events such as basketball, volleyball, and other ball sports. The school has a vibrant athletics program. The area is also used as a assembly area for school functions and theater events. The floor is designed with multipurpose intent. This means it is going to stand up to multiple types of traffic. This will include sports, chairs and tables, and general traffic.
