The first time ever for a glass court in a Middle School, and the team of Pingry School and McWIL Squash made it happen!
McWIL has worked with Fiberesin Industries for nearly two decades to supply and install panels that are both the highest density in the court panel market and the only panel fabricated with a melamine thermally-fused playing surface. The Fiberesin panel is installed using a hidden spline attachment (see photo at left) and is available in a moisture-resistant version should high humidity be a problem. The photo at right illustrates without resorting to technical explanation the significantly higher density of the Fiberesin panel (middle) compared to competitors. Unique to McWIL Squash is a matte surface that conforms to WSF specifications for low glare play walls.
McWIL Squash installs only 10mm (3/8″) thick solid aluminum hardware on all glass walls. All doors are installed with three hinges (left above) to provide long-term safety and use, and the hinge is designed with protection against fingers being trapped during the closing of the door. All fasteners are stainless steel or chromed for long-term protection against moisture degradation.
Unique to McWIL Squash and currently in the patent process is a door latch that provides positive latching function while eliminating the breakage problems associated with using a rotating action to create a lateral movement. Milled from solid aluminum and using a nylon strike combined with spring-loaded opening and closing function, the McWIL Squash (pat. pending) latch demonstrates McWIL’s commitment to making every part of the squash court optimally functional so as to give the customer the finest long-term service.
At McWIL we believe attention to detail is the highest calling and thus we have addressed the minor components of the squash court with the same goal as the major aspects – to make them the best. McWIL created and owns molds for fabricating red-pigmented polycarbonate gamelines and tin top angles, with the result that these components are solid, not subject to moisture, easy-to-clean and can be mounted firmly for long-term use and satisfaction. All tins are fabricated of 18ga steel and incorporate a profile that allows for prominent fixing of signage. Magnetic signs are perfect, as they are tough and stand up to millions of ball impacts and are easily interchangeable.
