Armor Courts is a certified Laykold applicator and are proud to offer superior court construction, renovations, and maintenance for a variety of sports such as Tennis, Pickleball, Basketball, and even Shuffleboard! You can tell a lot about the needs of a sport by looking at the court itself. As a general rule of thumb, however, having a solid subbase foundation, asphalt or concrete playing surface followed by a quality coating application that best suited for your individual needs will ultimately be the determining factor on how well a sport surface preforms.
Laykold systems are a family of court surface applications that meet the variety of needs for different sports. Laykold is a trusted provider of court surface applications all over the world and have provided solutions for the surfacing of many world class events for world class athletes that include the Miami open, NY Open, and for 2020 they will be the surface of choice for the US Open.
There are many reasons why Laykold applications are fantastic—and there are many reasons why Armor Courts have chosen to become an approved Laykold applicator. The primary reason is that they offer true fence to fence solutions for many different sport surfaces.
Gone are the old days of solid, hard asphalt courts that would be unforgiving on your joints. Especially being situated in the state of Florida, we want our courts to provide hours of enjoyment to both the young and the old. It’s no surprise that Florida boasts a large population of elderly retirees. Many of these hard-working citizens are enjoying the fruits of their labor in retirement and are fond of playing tennis & pickleball and are looking for ways to minimize impact to their joints that are prone to injury. There are many different Laykold applications which is why their approved applicators like Armor Courts can help you sort through all of the different offerings to make the best decision for your personal enjoyment, club, community, school, or park.
Not only is this force reduction a huge benefit to the elderly, but it is also a great asset for athletes who need to be risk-averse when it comes to injury and taking care of their bodies. Athletes place themselves under great stress to perform 110%, any reduction in physical wear and tear on their bodies is a valuable tool.
According to Laykold, many traditional cushion courts lose force-reduction a mere 3 years after installation on average. However, Laykold offers many alternate cushion courts which will retain 95-98% of force reduction capability after 10 years.
