Laykold® installed at TC Melle

Advert by IAKS member Melos GmbH

In Melle you can now play on a tennis court surface of the highest quality. In July, a Laykold® reference surface was installed at TC Melle and is now ready for play. This is the first Laykold® reference in the company’s immediate vicinity. For Melos, the court is an excellent opportunity to show our customers the Laykold® product under real conditions on site here in Melle. In addition, it is our aim to support TC Melle and thus sport in the town with the construction of the new area.

This year, the US Open was equipped for the first time with Laykold® as the official court surface. The US Open thus replaced its courts for the first time in 42 years. The change continues the ongoing modernization of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, the facility where the Grand Slam tournament has been played. Previous major renovations have included the installation of a movable roof over the Center Court, the construction of a new show court and the new construction of the Louis Armstrong Stadium.

The Laykold® acrylic system is an all-weather hard court coating that is both hard-wearing and durable. It can be easily adapted to meet a whole host of criteria in the areas of performance, playability and appearance. For instance, a specially made rubber cushion can be integrated into the system to improve the cushioning effect and, in turn, the comfort of play. The wide choice of colours allows you to add a creative splash to your asphalt or concrete surfaces whether old or new. Thanks to the minimal maintenance requirements and low installation costs, you can reinvigorate existing concrete and asphalt surfaces, and extend the life of existing courts. The main application areas are tennis courts and multi-sports surfaces (for basketball, volleyball, football). Laykold® is also a popular solution for roller sports and schools.
