NGI has developed and offers tennis court surfacing systems utilizing recycled and sustainable elements. NGI provides surfacing systems which replace the use of solvent and petroleum-based materials and instead employ alternative "green" materials. Additionally, NGI surfaces last longer and are easily installed over deteriorating surfaces. When taking a short-range approach to cost reduction and savings the result oftentimes can prove to be more expensive. Investing in a green overlay tennis court surface is a smart choice and one that can provide long term savings. Concrete and asphalt life spans average 20 years; however cracking can occur within a short period of time. Upkeep with cracking filling and painting can be tedious and expensive. NGI surfaces offer an easy solution.
Innovation for NGI is not new. Creating longer lasting tennis courts leading to a healthier, longer lasting planet is our mission. Booth 71A
