A shopping mall in Calgary, Alta., has been transformed into a tennis court using specialist floor graphics media from Drytac.

The project, at the Core Shopping Centre, promoted the first Men’s ATP Tennis event in Calgary and was hosted by the Alberta Tennis Center. Called the Calgary National Bank Challenger, the October event is part of the ATP Challenger Tour, a series of tournaments that showcase the rising stars in tennis.

Using SpotOn Floor 200, the project to create a public tennis court in the downtown Calgary shopping centre was undertaken by Print Three, which also sponsored the event. Shoppers and their families were invited to take to the court for a few sets of tennis.

Drytac SpotOn Floor 200 is 200 micron (8 mil), matte, white monomeric PVC film designed for short-term, indoor floor graphics without the need for lamination. It has been awarded a post-printed R-10 anti-slip rating and a low-slip potential rating according to the EN 13036-4 Pendulum Test, endorsed by the CTIOA. SpotOn Floor 200 has also achieved a global Class B1 Fire Rating, meaning it can be used safely and legally in public areas with strict fire regulations, such as shopping centres. Furthermore, the material is designed for tool-free installation and clean removal, thanks to its dot-pattern adhesive.

Print Three General Manager Mark Eisan explains why Print Three chose the Drytac product, supplied by ND Graphics, for the project. “We were testing products and laminates for the tennis court application and an installation partner recommended Drytac SpotOn Floor 200 after hearing about it at a conference,” he says. “We found the performance of the SpotOn product to be excellent. Our testing was intense, but we had planned to repair or replace areas. However, we did not need to as the product adhered for the ten days it was on the floor, and at the end of the project was removed in 20 minutes with no additional clean-up.”
