They’re cheap, but reduce playing time, require more use of infield conditioners to keep infields playable, and, because they blow or wash away, need more infield mix to be added each year. We do not add these to our infield mixes - that is why they play and maintain so well. BEAM CLAY® supplies hundreds of sports related prod- ucts from bases and clay to wall pads and windscreen.

They offer a large selection of commercial grade site furnishings, including bleachers, grandstands, outdoor tables, grills, benches, trash containers, drinking foun- tains, planters, umbrellas, bollards, shade canopies and bike racks. They also carry outdoor athletic equipment, park and playground equipment, and even a rental-duty fiberglass pedal boat.
If flexibility and portability is key, their hydraulic folding Speedy Bleachers and Speedy Stages can be easily towed from site to site, even on highways.

Reduce Field
Maintenance Costs
Newstripe Inc., con- tinues its dedication to continued innova- tion and reducing field maintenance	costs with the company’s latest offerings, the HashMark Master II and HaskMark Paint-and-Go. These new products can paint hash marks up to five times faster with a single operator, eliminating heavy, hard-to-handle stencils and multiple operators. HashMark Mas- ter automatically measures the inset and spacing between lines without having to string or measure and there is no cleanup beyond the usual flushing of the spray gun.
The HashMark Paint-and-Go is an economical alternative to stencils that still eliminates stringing and measuring, but requires a quick rinse of the stencil tray. More new products for 2018 will be simple bolt on cleaning tanks that allow operators to flush and clean their machines at the field to pre- vent damage from died paint resulting in expensive repairs. Newstripe also produces a complete line of walk-behind to ride-on airless paint stripers. Newstripe, Inc., is a family-owned and operated US manufacturing business. Visit the website at
