Alveolar Concrete Construction

Alveolar Concrete Construction

This porous system lets you play in all weathers. The cavities in the surface prevent water retention and instantly absorb heavy rain. (With this system there is no need for a slope on the playing surface to enable drainage).
The base : The manufacture of the porous amalgam is done on the spot. Putting in gaps that can expand and then laying down foundations prevents the court cracking during severe weather (ice, heat waves). The framework of galvanized links give the court an overall strength and solidity. Alveolar concrete is a stable material, which does not weaken under the effect of heat. Its thickness (9cm) and its absorbent properties make it a material that does not overload the ground (weight : 20g/cm2) and does not become misshapen with time. Its durability allows us to guarantee the court for 10 years and, as it is made using a state of the art procedure, we know the court will last more than 30 years.
The finish : The application of a top coat of elastomer based paints ensures a high level of resistance to wear and tear and results in a smooth finish. This needs to be renewed every 10 years.
Maintenance by the user : The maintenance consists of simply taking off the sheets that cover the court.
Professional maintenance : We advise signing up for annual professional maintenance to ensure the quality of the court’s playing surface.
