University of Texas at Austin Trusts Beynon for Track Resurfacing
Beynon Sports Continues to be Trusted by the Leading Track & Field Programs in Texas
At the University of Texas at Austin, where the outdoor track and field season kicked off in thrilling fashion on March 4th with the Longhorn Invitational, Beynon Sports, a Tarkett Sports company, recently completed the resurfacing of the track at Mike A. Myers Stadium and Soccer Field. In addition to providing the school’s elite athletes with Beynon’s innovative BSS 2000 RE (resurfacing) system, the project also represented the extension of a nearly 15-year-long customer relationship.
The stadium’s first Beynon track was installed in 2009 and the school showed a continued trust in the company with its latest resurfacing project. The newly installed BSS 2000 RE system covers a nine-lane European oval that features a wider turn radius than traditional tracks to allow for more speed in the turns.
Beynon’s system employs a cutting-edge process that restores the appearance and texture of an existing track surface and dramatically enhances the feel under foot. Instead of having to remove and discard the aged surface, necessary with rubber sheet good products, the BSS 2000 RE polyurethane system repurposes the existing track and extends its life. The project illustrates how important the region has been to Beynon Sports over the years. Trusted by over 500 track surfaces across the state, Beynon is also proudly based in Texas and maintains a constant presence with its office in Georgetown. Thanks to its central-Texas location, the office provides easy access to many of Beynon’s top collaborations, including but not limited to:
- The University of Texas at San Antonio
- The University of Texas at El Paso
- Texas A&M University
- Abilene Christian University
- Trinity University
“Our work with the University of Texas as a customer highlights the diversity and efficacy of our product offering, making the installation process that much easier for our clients,” said John T. Beynon, President, Beynon Sports. “We’ve worked hard to build a reputation of consistency and reliability, establishing Beynon Sports as the leading name in the world of track and field.”
In addition to Beynon’s efforts with The University of Texas, Tarkett Sports has also extended its reach across other school facilities via its FieldTurf brand, which specializes in artificial turf solutions. FieldTurf has been the supplier of choice at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium (football) since 2009, with a new surface having been installed prior to the 2021 season. Other FieldTurf systems have also been used at the UFCU Disch-Falk Field (baseball) since 2008 and the Wright-Whitaker Sports Complex, which is home to the school’s intramural activities.
Beynon Sports is a part of Tarkett Sports, a world leader in athletic surfacing, offering a comprehensive portfolio of sports flooring solutions through its brands: FieldTurf, FieldTurf Landscape, Beynon Sports, Renner Sports, GrassMaster, Tarkett Sports Indoor and Tarkett Sports Construction.
