Briton Engineering Uses New Techniques To Install Synthetic Ski Slopes
Briton Engineering Developments Ltd., the leading synthetic ski slope experts across the globe continues to revolutionize their synthetic Snowflex® installation process.
"While other synthetic ski slope companies remain stagnant, Briton Engineering continues to innovate design, manufacturing, and installation methods which improves ski, snowboard, and tubing performance and offers the client the very best system available worldwide and giving the best possible opportunity for a good return on investment," states Terry Di Stasi, Director of Worldwide Business Development.
Briton's latest "commercial grade" installation technique uses a layer of concrete as a sub-structure for the multi layers of Snowflex® to be anchored to.
Current Snowflex project in Branson, Missouri, USA shown above
Enhancements from this new method include –
1. Better surface for fixing
2. Smoother finish
3. Better anchoring points
4. Better drainage
5. Better recycling of water potential
6. Quicker installation once the concrete is laid
7. Facility opens sooner allowing revenue generation to start sooner *subject to weather and availability of local civil engineering services
The key to Briton’s success has been the company’s continued expansion into new design, materials, methods, and installation techniques for the synthetic ski slope industry.
Briton's mission offers ski resorts, recreation parks, mixed retail and leisure destinations and new business start-ups the commercially best design and synthetic ski slope product that will provide proven opportunity in expanding skiing, snowboarding, and tubing into a 12 month seriously attractive business model and revenue generator.
In addition to the current project being built in Branson, Missouri Briton has recently supplied its award winning Snowflex® system to further expand the existing Snowflex® training facilities to the Olympic training park in Park City, Utah and the Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre, Lynchburg, VA. Briton has also recently completed the design and build of the world’s largest synthetic snowsports slope at 11,700m2, to the prestigious AltinOran development for Sinpas Construction in Ankara, Turkey. The past couple of years also saw Briton design and build a Snowflex® tubing facility for The YMCA of the Rockies in Colorado, USA.
Briton is presently working on a number of prestigious project enquiries around the world, including Europe, the Far East, Australasia and the USA.
