McWIL has a proud history of court installation. However, once courts are built McWIL has no control over maintenance and operation of the courts. It can therefore be counter-productive for all parties to refer to a list of installations when the result might be the potential client visits a facility that is poorly kept, or where repair is necessary but not addressed. In addition, we pride ourselves on always improving the work we do, with the logical conclusion that the most recent installations are the ones that would properly represent what we would build for a new client.
Illustrated here are some of our installations, and we will be happy to provide more information on a case-by-case basis.
Through a special partnership with ILLUSTRATE MY DESIGN, based in Alexandria, Virginia, McWIL is able to provide customers with the ability to see their design before they commit to the cost and effort of building. These renderings can also be valuable tools for raising the critical financial needs for a project.
In addition, renderings can be useful for architects and builders, as well as customers, to understand both the base construction required for courts in order to result in first-class installations.
A world-class squash court is the result of first-class materials installed properly by technicians who are committed to the customer enjoying a long-term and satisfying experience with the courts. As holder of World Squash Federation Complete Court Accreditation status, McWIL Squash has assembled a top-quality selection of materials to create the finest squash courts.
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.
No manufacturer has invested more in creating the finest squash floor than the HARO Sports division of Hamburger Flooring of Germany. McWIL Squash uses the HARO portable squash floor on its all-glass courts and the very same surface is installed in all McWIL Squash courts for customers worldwide. The factory-sealed surface provides more grip than any floor in the market and is beloved by players at all levels. The subfloor is designed to mitigate the beating bodies of all ages take playing serious squash and is assembled to last.
