Beynon BSS 2000


This IAAF Certified Track System can be Tuned to meet the intense demands of Olympic-Caliber competition.


EPDM granules are mixed throughout the full depth of the wear layer, giving your athletes superior traction and complete control.

The force reduction layer is constructed with butyl rubber and environmentally friendly Polyurethane for maximum energy return.




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.

The synthetic surfacing contractor shall furnish all labor, materials, equipment, supervision and services necessary for the proper completion of the BSS 2000 Dual Durometer synthetic track surfacing and related work indicated on the drawings and specified herein.

The synthetic surfacing contractor shall refer to the drawings for the required locations of synthetic track surfacing to be installed. All quantities and dimensions shall be field verified by the synthetic surfacing contractor.

A. Install full-depth poured-in-place two-component UV stabilized elastomeric polyurethane Dual Durometer synthetic surfacing system with encapsulated textured finish.

B. Layout and paint all track lines and event markings as required and specified nby current IAAF and NCAA rules.

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.

It is my pleasure to recommend the services of Copland Coating. During the past fifteen years, we have worked with Copland on numerous projects. These projects included resurfacing our twelve tennis courts as well.

Copland offers top-notch quality, service and rates. They have demonstrated their attention to detail and skill. When it comes to applying recreational surfaces, I cannot think of a better company to work with. I would highly recommend Copland for the job and look forward to working with them in the future.

Larry Siegel French Woods

Over the past 20 years our camps have worked with Copeland Coating to meet our surfacing needs. Steve and the team at Copeland have consistently exceeded expectation in helping to recondition our sport courts and to build new facilities including our hockey rink and tennis courts. I highly recommend them and look forward to working with Copeland in the future.

Island Lake has employed Copeland Coating for over 25 years. We have found them to be professional and a quality provider of court surfacing. They are consistently on time and perform as expected. We wouldn’t look anywhere else for this service.

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.

Bard College

Just a quick note to thank you once again for the terrific job you did with our courts this spring. Over the past 15 years we have enjoyed the relationship with you and Copeland Coating, and have come to trust your judgement and expertise. You have always communicated timely with us, finished your work ahead of schedule, and the quality of work is impeccable.

We look forward to many more years together – see you at Tri-State.

Mark Newfield Owner/Director, Iroquois Springs

We are thrilled with the work that Copeland Coating has done for us over the past several years. Their customer service is great and they deliver as promised. They have a solution to every challenge, whether it’s a new project or a minor repair.
