Facility Design Hints- Recessed Slideboards

I stole this idea from my friend Brandon Marcello. When Brandon was at Stanford one of the features I loved in his facility were the slideboards that had been recessed into the floor. No more piling plates to keep aging slideboards from moving. We did this last year at MBSC but, Brandon took his a step further and not only recessed his but, was able to recess them deep enough so he could place flooring over them when not in use. If you look closely at the picture you’ll see the cover strip just to the right of the coaches feet. Pretty smart.
