ARMOR makes your job easier
The ARMOR Crack Repair System utilizes a specially knitted fabric that expands as the crack widens. Fabrics that do not expand (such as fiberglass) simply tear or delaminate as the crack widens during the cold winter months. Our fabric, however, stretches similar to t-shirt material. The secret to making our fabric work best is how it is purposely NOT bonded to the court in the vicinity of the crack (sometimes called a “slipsheet”). This allows more movement of the crack without the fabric tearing or delaminating from the surface. Thus, the reason why the ARMOR Crack Repair System works so well is that it effectively spreads the stress of the crack over a six-inch wide area of expandable fabric.
And your clients happier.
ARMOR has successfully kept repaired structural cracks from reappearing on the surface of tennis courts for as long as 20 years. But beware, all crack repair “systems” are not the same. ARMOR, the original fabric crack repair system, is the benchmark to which all other systems compare. Of the most popular crack repair “systems”, the ARMOR Crack Repair System is the only one that utilizes the proven “slipsheet” technology. The completed ARMOR repair is the widest of all repairs at thirty-six inches. Narrow repairs tend to delaminate. And, most importantly, ARMOR employs two layers of expandable fabric over the crack, whereas the other systems use only one layer. Other systems are promoted as being “faster to install” since one layer is faster to install than two. But, two layers are proven to last twice as long.
