OUR SERVICES – ATHLETIC TRACKS

The durability and sustainability of of your athletic tracks largely depends on it’s construction and surface choice. We can advice you at the key stages of your new-build or your renovation project to ensure full compliance at the completion of the stages :

  • Construction materials sampling and analysis
  • Foundation : thickness, evenness and grading
  • 1st and 2nd asphalt layers : thickness, evenness, mineral-binder content

Material identification

Sampling and physical/chemical analyses of synthetic track components.

Final track certification

This final inspection evaluates and certifies compliance to norms and standards. The main parameters evaluated at this step are :

  • Safety ( shock absorption, deformation and slip resistance)
  • Performance ( evenness, thickness of the material)

Techncial audit and diagnosis

Our experts can advice you in case of early ageing of your track or any technical issue that may arise over time (hardening, color fading, incomplete curing, moisture build-ups, melting, etc.)
