Flawless Finish

Get a highly professional finish without displacing soil. Unlike steel mat drags, the Beacon Cocoa Mat Drag rarely leaves a pile of material to disperse after you pick up the drag. The 6-foot-by-4-foot drag is available with or without the Beacon Leveling Bar to drag an infield with a tractor. The 6-foot-by-2-foot hand drag is great for in-game between-inning manicuring, and the 4-foot-by-2-foot hand Cocoa Drag is good for smoothing baselines, cutouts, mounds and home-plate areas. No matter the area, there's a Cocoa Mat Drag for you.

Easy Canopies

This year, Shade Systems provided numerous shade products to the Schaumburg Park District in Illinois. The Schaumburg staff chose Shade Systems for this high-profile project because it offers uncompromising quality standards as well as the patented Turn-N-SlideTM easy fastening system to allow for quick removal for the winter season. Just as importantly, the city recognized that the Turn-N-SlideTM is among the only patented systems on the market that allows staff to reattach the canopies themselves without having to hire expensive outside installers each year.

The controller is designed specifically for measurement and control of swimming pool water chemistry including free available chlorine, ORP, pH, conductivity, temperature, and second oxidizer control for UV and ozone.
