Post-Tensiond Concrete - Tennis & Pickleball
Strenght from the ground up. When faced with extreme weather or poor soil conditions, traditional tennis courts can have a tendency to heave, settle, or crack — all of which can affect your surface playability and safety.
The solution? A post-tensioned concrete substrate system. Renowned for long-term durability, our innovative technique involves encasing sheathed cables in a concrete slab, then stressing and locking those cables in place once the concrete sets. This creates a durable solution which leads to reduced repair and maintenance costs, often required with an asphalt base.
WITH POST-TENSIONED CONCRETE, YOU CAN:
- Span unstable soil
- Increase resistance to settling and heaving
- Eliminate cold joints around net and fence posts
- Enjoy better uniformity of play
- Provide a consistent slope for drainage
- Create a stable, aesthetic concrete edge
- Eliminate potential liability due to structural cracking
- Build on top of existing courts saving demolition costs
REMAINS DURABLE IN POOR SOIL CONDITIONS
If expansive soil starts to move, the concrete slab actually floats and performs independently due to constant cable compression.
The post-tensioned slab is kept in a constant state of compression so it remains durable and stable during weather fluctuations and extreme conditions.
Reduces water holding areas and provides consistent slope allowing for a highly competitive surface.
MAKES USE OF EXISTING SITES
Reduces removal costs and potential unforeseen subgrade conditions.
