Athletic Covers – Protection and Performance

Athletic Covers

Athletic covers are incredibly important, but in general we tend to not think about them. Your customers can use them in a variety of ways; this can include protecting their field or gym floor, transforming it for an event, or as a floor cover in a boxing ring. Mauritzon offers high quality athletic covers for gymnasium floors and fields as well as martial arts, MMA and boxing rings.

Gymnasium Floor & Field Covers

Using athletic covers can save your customers a lot of time and money. They can protect their fields from damage during large events. Most of these fields were designed with athletes in mind, not crowds. Such damage can mean huge repair costs in reseeding the field. By making an investment now, your customers can protect their fields and make maintenance much easier. Our covers have heat sealed seams for ultimate weather protection and are easy to handle.

We also offer covers for gymnasium floors that will protect against wear and tear that can occur with hosting non-athletic events such as a graduation or dance. Our covers can protect your gym floor from scratches by heavy equipment or scuffs by shoes or chairs. Mauritzon’s athletic covers are specifically designed to meet your requirements and are available in a range of different colors. Our products are sure to significantly extend the life of your customer’s gym floors.

Martial Arts, MMA & Boxing Ring Covers

Athletic Covers For MMA and Martial Arts

We offer both vinyl and canvas mat covers for ring events and gyms. Our vinyl mat covers include heat-sealed seams and double needle lock stitched hems for enhanced durability.

Our natural cotton duck canvas mat covers give you a better grip on the mat. It also includes hook and loop closures to fit around vertical posts. By choosing Mauritzon for your athletic cover needs, you’ll get top-of-the-line products that will help improve the performance of your customers’ athletes as well as the protection of their fields and gyms.

What to Expect from the Industrial Textile Industry in 2018

The industrial textiles industry is key to the manufacturing sector, and our Mauritzon team is proud to be at the forefront of the industry. Over three centuries, with family ownership spanning five generations, our company has manufactured and distributed quality wholesale industrial products across the nation. What can we do for you? Read on to learn more about Mauritzon and the upcoming 2018 textile forecast.

The Last of 2017

Part of planning for 2018 involves revisiting what went right in 2017. With positives like October’s National Manufacturing Day initiative, business across the industry work hard to inspire the next generation of skilled workers.

Product catalogs are also a great way to spread knowledge about a company’s products and capabilities. Our latest product catalog covered our industrial fabrics, awning and marine fabrics, tarpaulins, welding blankets and screens, divider curtains, and athletic covers and dividers.

2018 Predictions for Industrial Textiles

Expectations for the U.S. industrial textile industry are high and we hope to see even further advancements and successes throughout 2018. Industrial textiles have become a more important part of the textile and apparel manufacturing sector over the past few years, and this is not forecast to change.

The wholesale industrial fabrics and textile products we distribute appeal to diverse markets, from automotive and marine to sports and recreational. As the U.S. boating industry continues to unveil innovations and experience growing recreational boat sales, the demand for reliable marine fabrics will grow too. As always, the sports industry remains strong, driven at least in part by an increasing safety-conscious American population. In turn, products such as athletic covers for gyms, martial arts, and soccer fields will be highly sought-after.

Mauritzon textiles are constructed with heavy-duty materials to withstand the toughest elements and environments. Safety will continue to be at the forefront of our minds in everything we craft and distribute in 2018 and beyond, along with ensuring we consistently provide superior service and materials to our customers.

As the New Year Rolls In

The Mauritzon team looks forward to another productive year in the books.

We hope that your New Year is filled with joy and good health!

The Best of Industrial Textile Products 2017

2018 is knocking on the door, and with that said we’re asking our audience, “what did you do this year that you can do better next year?” When it comes to industrial textiles and supplies, we’ve got your answer! We’re giving you the best of Mauritzon products 2017 (add them to your holiday last for 2018!).

In February, we kicked off 2017 with snow tarps as fresh as the inches on your front lawn. Our industrial tarps are good for construction, hardware, trucking, the supply chain and other similar sectors. Mauritzon’s snow tarps are reinforced and reliable premium products that are changing the way you deal with inclement weather. We warned that all snow tarps are not made equal! Available in two variants – Economy and Premium, Maurtizon tarps are:

  • Made of durable PVC coated polyester
  • Reinforced down the middle and especially along the sides with seat belt quality straps boasting break strengths of 6000-12,000 lbs.
  • Made for longevity with steel O-rings on ends of all webbing
  • To be used only on freshly fallen snow

Best of all, these durable investments keep their worth by saving time and money for our consumers!

In case you missed it, snow tarps aren’t the only kind of industrial tarps we supply. Diverter and drainage tarps are a must have for commercial roof leaks. If your roof system is compromised, a drainage tarp provides a quality short-term solution until a professional can arrive on site to do the necessary repairs. Varieties that we offer include: economical light duty, flame retardant, and anti-static vinyl. No matter which style you choose, rest assured that the right investment will give you the right set up for a leaky situation.

Time after time, one of our biggest sellers is our industrial awnings and hardware. Options include:

  • Awnshade: A smooth surface top, flexible front lit and/or back-lit awning that’s flame-retardant with proven durability and custom colors available 1000 minimum.
  • Recacril: Constructed with an acrylic coated surface, the Recacril® Acrylic Awning offers water resistance and fabric stability, with multiple colors that illuminate beautifully.
  • Awnmax®: Featuring patented antiwicking scrim, hard acrylic topcoats, and proven durability, Awnmax® awnings have unparalleled translucency while resisting bruises, marks, and dirt.
  • Sattler®: The Sattler® line of awnings includes high-quality fabrics designed for outdoor use and extreme durability, and the Firemaster®safety-assured flame-resistant awnings that offer extra protection and strength.

In the off-seasons, we have awnings for the marine industry, outdoor living, and cleaning products for all.

Come spring, we pitched our industrial equipment for athletic activities. Mauritzon industrial textiles feature a variety of uses from fields, gymnasiums, rings, and trainings, to batting practices, tennis practices, and more. These options reign superior.

And in November, we wrapped it up with some words of advice on this coming winter. Our industrial hardware is the best you will find to prep both your equipment and worksites.

In case we missed anything about the year in review, we’ve also included our best sellers feature from August.

We’d like to take a moment to thank our loyal customer base for staying in touch with us (and in use of us) throughout 2017! We wish you all a very happy holiday season and look forward to meeting your industrial textile needs in the new year.

Mauritzon Inc. is one of the top, most diversified industrial textile manufacturers and distributors. Our small, family-run sail business, started in 1888, now serves a plethora of industries like awning and marine, transportation and construction, sports and recreational, hardware and more!

The Best Ways to Keep Your Hardware in Shape this Winter

With winter months on the near horizon, it’s best to prep your equipment and worksites now—before the bad weather strikes. From snow to sleet, the coarse weather ahead will make it more difficult for maintenance workers to get to you should anything malfunction.

Planning Ahead

Instead of waiting for something to go wrong, take the right precautions now to ensure optimal performance on your equipment and site to get you through the roughest time of the year. This technique will help you to avoid troubles down the road.

As a wholesale manufacturer of industrial textile products and a distributor of hardware and findings, Mauritzon warrants durable products to withstand severe weather.

Why not step it up a notch?

A close inspection of your equipment and workspace as a whole is a way to avert tainted equipment come spring.

Hardware and Findings Maintenance

Listen to the advice of the experts—get your awning hardware, cargo restraints, and other tools prepped and ready to go.

Steps to take & issues to look for:

  • Check for worn parts
  • Tears
  • Other damages that have been inflicted throughout the previous year
  • Replace parts that have been affected before the weather gets bad

Inspections and replacements can apply to the majority of your supplies:

Other types of protection you can use to help:

  • Cargo restraints like sturdy tarp protectors or durable winches
  • Easy-to-insert hardware and webbing
  • Grommets
  • High-strength & reliable washers

If you’re in the marine industry, this will aid your boats and other fleet vehicles in severe winds, rain, sleet, etc.

We all want our gear as equipped as possible when the nicer weather reemerges next spring.

Lastly, inspect safety equipment and replace if needed.

Our quality setting tools provide simple ways to set and insert grommets and snaps, install common sense fasteners, and more—anything you need to make your transition into the change of seasons as easy as possible.

Recognizing National Manufacturing Day Friday, October 6th

National Manufacturing Day and Its Initiatives

There are few initiatives that have impacted the course of manufacturing and production in the United States like the National Manufacturing Day (NMD).

Started in 2012 to give the public a glimpse of modern manufacturing and to inspire the next generation of skilled workers, NMD has grown in scope and popularity with each subsequent iteration.

It is expected that in 2017 more than 600,000 individuals and companies will come together to celebrate the National Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 6th.

What breakthroughs will businesses achieve in terms of how the public views manufacturing and its contributions to the economy? How will the perception of students change and will they embrace S.T.E.M careers in hopes of a strong and stable future career path?

NMD may be officially designated as the first Friday of every October, but it influences the strategic decisions taken by the workers of tomorrow throughout the year and beyond.

The Impact of the Day

Over the last half decade, NMD initiatives have had a profound positive effect. 89% of people believe that they are now more aware of the myriad manufacturing opportunities available in their community. 84% of students are more convinced that manufacturing can provide them with stable, well-paying careers and benefits, and 64% are motivated to pursue them.

Many manufacturing companies industry-wide host “plant tours” in which they open their facility to potential employees offering them a sneak peek into the economy -boosting, exciting work that manufacturing entails. Some also organize workshops to focus on Skill Gap and its remedies. Others join forces with their peers and hold symposiums where breakthroughs in manufacturing are presented to their audience and the world.

So far, this year, 2,000+ events have already been registered and more are being published every day.

Mauritzon’s Innovations in the Industrial Textile Industry

Here at Mauritzon, we salute the National Manufacturing Day endeavors and express our support for the cause.

At our company, we seek skilled employees who are passionate about combining their interests for manufacturing with research in the industrial textile industry. This compound creates room for outstanding innovations like:

  • Various levels of toughness for different applications
  • Heavy and/or light duty products dependent upon your needs

Industrial Textiles in 2017

Here at Mauritzon, we’re getting ready to take on another impressive year of innovation and improvement. Last month, we looked back on some of 2016’s greatest accomplishments, recapping a few of our most exciting and informative blog posts.

For instance, touching upon on our ability to serve a diverse range of industries and applications, we recapped March, April, and May’s blogs posts, all of which focused on a different textile application — truck cargo covers, retail and restaurant awnings, and marine boat covers. At Mauritzon, we’re extremely proud of the versatility of our durable textiles and remain committed to serving all types of industries. As we embark on a new year, we look forward to expanding our lively project portfolio and partnering with new clients on projects big and small.

In last month’s end-of-the-year recap, we also highlighted June’s National Safety Month blog post, in which we discussed our ongoing commitment to safety — for both our dedicated workers and our clients. As a textile manufacturer, safety is at the forefront of everything we do. Many of our textiles are flame resistant, and several provide heavy-duty protection from the elements and harsh environments. In the year ahead, we’ll be looking for ways to further enhance our textile products for optimal safety and protection.

The team here at Mauritzon is looking forward to another exciting, productive year, and we invite you to sign up for periodic emails from us to keep abreast of our latest product developments for construction and industrial applications. Contact us to today to sign up or to learn more.

And be sure to check back here next month for our next post, where we’ll discuss important industry news, impelling company updates, and new product developments. We hope everyone is having a great new year so far and wish you a happy and healthy year down the road!

For the latest on industrial textile developments make sure to follow our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages!

A Look Back at 2016’s Highlights

With the year drawing to a close, the team at Mauritzon is looking ahead to next year’s challenges while taking stock of everything we’ve accomplished in 2016. Below, we’ve highlighted some of our most important blog posts from the past year.

Blog Highlights

Serving Diverse Industries

As a leading industrial wholesale manufacturer and distributor of industrial textile products, hardware, and findings, Mauritzon is particularly proud of our ability to serve a diverse range of industries. For instance, in our March blog post, we outlined how our sturdy vinyl-coated truck covers help protect cargo from the elements and keep fellow drivers safe. In our last blog, we circled back around to this topic as our supplies are a huge help in protecting your loads while traveling in winter conditions.

In our April post, we delved into our work contributing awning fabrics to various businesses. To name a few, companies like retail stores and outdoor cafes can eventually reap the benefits. Able to withstand the most severe conditions, we provide flame-retardant polyester vinyl fabrics to ensure durability and optimal safety. We offer UV-resistant and self-cleaning awning textiles as well.

We also serve the boating industry — where we got our start 100 years ago — providing weather-resistant, durable materials for sails. In our May post, we showcased our marine material offerings, including acrylic-coated polyester, waterproof acyclic, clear woven reinforced patterns, and spin-dyed acrylic fabrics for boat covers.

Our Dedication to Safety

At Mauritzon, we’re proud of our commitment to safety in the workplace and for our clients. In honor of National Safety Month, held annually every June, we penned a blog outlining how textiles help keep people safe in various environments. For instance, our flame-retardant vinyl laminated polyester fabrics — ideal for use as tarpaulins, gym floor covers, and divider curtains — help ensure public safety and reduce the risk of injury.

Our 745 FR PVC-coated membrane is also flame resistant; a strong polyester base fabric with a thick, knife-coated PVC layer, this material is well suited for heavy-duty applications such as awnings, partition curtains, and canopies.

Looking Toward 2017

This was an exciting, productive year for the team at Mauritzon, and we look forward to continuing to provide top-quality, reliable textile solutions for the industrial space and more. We hope everyone has a happy, healthy holiday season, and we’ll see you in 2017!
