Beynon BSS 1000


Sharp, precise markings and a seamless surface make this system ideal for world-class competition.

EPDM granules are mixed throughout the top wear to ensure traction over the life of your system. The force reduction layer provides the shock absorption necessary to meet the rigorous demands of the IAAF performance specifications. Available in 10mm or 13mm thickness. This system can be Tuned to match the needs and desires of your athletes and coaching staff.



Our Action-Track® Running Tracks have beneficial characteristics:

Resilient: Our tracks retain their resiliency, regardless of the temperature.

Fast: Our tracks deliver greater energy return to the runner. They provide ultra-quick spike release, a key feature in achieving maximum athletic performance.

Safe: Water drains off through the surface, eliminating slick spots. The surface is textured and tailored to provide a high friction in both wet and dry conditions.

Durable: Our track system “breathes” to release moisture that could build-up beneath the surface – improving surface longevity.

Installation shall be executed only in dry conditions.


Line stripping and event markings shall be laid out in accordance with current IAAF and NCAA rules.

Upon completion the owner shall be supplied with all necessary computations and drawings as well as a letter of certification attesting to the accuracy of the markings.

Imagine installing a product as friendly to install as an asphalt based beautifier with a lot of the same strengths as a coal tar based sealer.   Action-Pave LP Base Sealer
In this installment, Copeland provided USTA Eastern a step-by-step view of a recent court repair and resurfacing project at Katonah Memorial Park in Katonah, NY. Please check out the PDF of the full article!

Vassar College has experienced a very good working relationship with Copeland Coating during the past 8 years. We currently have 3 separate tiers of courts consisting of; 6 varsity courts in the north tier, 3 campus use courts in the center tier and 4 campus/local community use courts in the south tier.

Copeland management and their front line crew have always responded in a timely manner and have worked under very tight schedules to prepare our courts for the fall tennis season. They reconfigured our center tier from 4 to 3 doubles courts per a request from the tennis coaching staff with excellent results and have coated our south tier courts in a manner that will lengthen the useful life even though major renovation work is clearly needed.
I can confidently recommend Copeland Coating for tennis court re-coating and overall renovation work and should add that they are very competitive in their pricing.

Track & Field has always been a major part of my life.  I was an athlete from a young age growing up in New York and now a Master official and high school track & field coach.  Never did I imagine that I would have the ability and opportunity to build a track & field facility.

Every detail was planned carefully.  It was very important to me to choose the correct workers and companies that would make my dream a reality.  Most of the workers were local with many being Bethel track & field alumni and families.  When it came to choosing a track surfacing company, the choices were many, but one significantly stood out from the rest….Action Track Surfacing.

My first meeting with Steve Hinding & Doug Stone left me with an impression of honesty and commitment, as well as superior knowledge and expertise.   They listened carefully to my desires and needs. They offered suggestions and a well organized plan to accomplish my goal.  They were as concerned with completing a high quality track facility as I was.  Every question was met with a timely answer.  There were no hidden costs.  The project was completed in the contracted budget with no surprises.  Their crews worked perfectly with in the time table.  They were clean, hard working and professional…even to the point of cutting a slot drain on their hands and knees to meet the desired design!  Steve has been back several times to check the quality of his work.  Action Track has made sure that I am completely satisfied with the project.  

 Each day I arrive at the facility it takes my breath away.  The beautiful 8 lane track, javelin runway, and sealed walkways, all completed by Action Track Surfacing, have given my team and the town of Bethel a first class track & field facility!  I would highly recommend their services for all track & field surfacing needs.

Camp Starlight has been dealing with Copeland Coating for many years. We have used Copeland for all of our sports courts including tennis, basketball, and gymnasium surfaces. The work has always been of a very high quality and they have always been very responsive to any of our requests. Even in times of inclement weather Copeland has always worked overtime to get the job completed on schedule. I would have no hesitation in recommending Copeland Coating to any camp.

The Copeland Coating Company has been successfully maintaining all of the sport surfaces at the Rocking Horse Ranch Resort for over 20 years (which is a testimony unto itself).

At each winter’s end, we contemplate the complete overhaul of our 40 year old exterior tennis courts , the crew at Copeland manages the near impossible in extending the life of these courts for yet another full season with their time tested re-coating process.

We maintain a high profile family resort that earns the prestigious 3 Diamond Travel Award every year. It is critical that wherever our guests are on our 500 acre facility, they experience an extremely well maintained, family friendly resort property.

Thank you Copeland Coating for being part of our facility management team.

Copeland coating goes the extra coating when it comes to great customer service. For 12 years it’s been a straight set victory for our member tennis courts!


I would like it to be known that Copeland Coating is a wonderful company to do business with. I am the Head Tennis Coach at Bard College and have had dealings with Copeland in the person of Steve Puzio over these past 20 years. We have used Copeland as our “got to” company for all our court needs. Our six courts have been resurfaced twice. Steve was involved personally from start to completion both times. He came first to advise and determine our needs, followed by a quote.

He made himself accessible always and we eagerly walked the job after the courts dried to insure our total satisfaction. Copeland allowed us to commit to an acceptable time frame for the job. We were always treated respectfully and fairly. Their many years of experience proved invaluable as their advice was always “spot on”. I feel that they are the best in the business. I am sure you will agree.

I have had the privilege of working closely with Copeland Coating Company over the years in the development of our tennis facilities at Saratoga Springs High School and Middle School.

I have always found them to be easy to work with during and after the completion of their work. They were always available to advise when needed. They are the best at what they do and I highly recommend them!
