The Piatti Tennis Team is made up of a group of professionals who have pooled all their expertise to provide a complete, all-encompassing service to the members of tennis schools, their pupils and to any players interested in this service, to help optimise the performance of every single athlete.
Their intention is to create an innovative approach to the coaching of tennis players and provide athletes with a technical and psychological-physical support network on a daily basis through thanks to well-coordinated specialists.
The newly constructed Tennis Piatti Center included the installation of 4 new tennis courts made from MAPECOAT TNS COMFORT, a multi-layered system used to create both indoor and outdoor courts with excellent playing comfort, ideal for those who use the courts for hours on a daily basis. This system was only chosen once coach Piatti had performed out an in-depth analysis and evaluation, who declared this system the best technical solution to carry out his work.
To complete the courts the following products were used: ULTRABOND TURF 2 STARS, solvent and water-free polyurethane adhesive for bonding the MAPECOMFORT flexible rubber matting, MAPECOAT TNS PRIMER EPW, two-component epoxy primer in water dispersion, MAPECOAT TNS GREY BASE COAT, semi-flexible, acrylic resin-based basecoat and filling paste in water dispersion, MAPECOAT TNS FINISH 1, coloured acrylic resin-based coating product in water dispersion certified by the ITF (International Tennis Federation), MAPECOAT TNS COLOR, fine-grained coloured coating made from acrylic resin in water dispersion and micro-granular quartz sand, and MAPECOAT TNS LINE, acrylic resin-based paint in water dispersion for marking out indoor and outdoor sports courts and pitches.
This project clearly shows that Mapei is the ideal partner for both designers and users.
In fact, various Mapei products were employed to waterproof substrates and structures (MAPELASTIC), installing ceramic tiles (TOPCEM PRONTO, KERAFLEX, KERAFLEX MAXI S1 ZERØ, KERAQUICK), providing wall coatings (ELASTOCOLOR PAINT), and waterproofing roofs (EVOLIGHT S and EVOLIGHT S MINERAL).
The last step was to cover the roof of the clubhouse with a double layer of EVOLIGHT S and EVOLIGHT S Mineral membranes from the REOXTHENE Line, which were chosen because of the need to use high performance products made from a lightweight compound with a high polymer content. The reinforcement incorporated in the membranes gives them particularly high mechanical properties.
Also, the special formulation used for the membranes makes them unique for their flexibility at low temperature and their superior elongation compared with traditional membranes.
The patented, innovative REOXTHENE Ultralight Technology used to manufacture these membranes is a further guarantee of their quality, stability and extended lifespan.
Not only do these characteristics increase their durability over the years, they also make them easier to transport and handle on site, easier to apply and install and reduce the load acting on the roof.
