Introduction to Courtcraft

#1
Hello All,
Courtcraft (or specifically Alex from Courtcraft) here. We build, install and maintain squash courts in the UK. Traditional Armourcoat plaster courts are still in demand and there are hundreds in need of servicing each year. We have a need to find skilled plasterers to come and work with us on some major construction jobs and so we will be posting about that elsewhere on the forum.

Check us our here to find out more about us

Cheers Alex

Sirapite was a nice material as long as there was a bit of suction. Could be a bloody nightmare in the depths of winter.
you could gauge sirapite to what you required. a scoop of thistle board finish, a scoop of lime. for a normal hit.
just sirapite on its own it would set in about 15 mins. ideal for returns when using rules.
i have seen it put through a cement mixer, this would kill the set, they would put the whole 3 bed site house on and trowel up next day. it was a corse open finish.

Welcome along @Courtcraft
Someone once told me plastering squash courts was a very exact standard as any deviations in the wall will affect the game. Never doubted it as it made sense, never known anyone to do one though

Hi All ,

the plaster that is used is called Armourcoat ( https://armourcoat.com/en/asf_finish_info?asf_id=5599 ). Its a blend of Gypsum, hardening agents, pigments and resins. The tolerance in build is +/- 10mm over the 9.75m length or 6.4m width and most times its the block work that is out making life more interesting for the plasterer.

We are still looking for people interested in working with us so please message us with your details and we will get in touch.
