AZEK AND DAYTON DRAGONS TEAM UP TO CREATE “DRAGON’S LAIR”
AZEK® Building Products and the MiLB’s Dayton Dragons have hit a home run this season by teaming up to create a dynamic new viewing deck at Fifth Third Field in Dayton, Ohio. The “Dragon’s Lair” is a high-end, all-inclusive hospitality area made from AZEK® Deck’s Vintage Collection® in Mahogany with dark hickory accents.
The space is a donation and part of AZEK Building Products’ commitment to community engagement. “We believe in giving back and being active in the towns and cities where we work. We are proud of our presence in the area,” says Julia Fitzgerald, AZEK Builidng Products CMO. “Wilmington has been home to one of our manufacturing plants for more than 15 years, so our ties run deep. The Dragon’s Lair is the perfect opportunity for us to make a worthwhile investment near where our employees live, work and play,” says Fitzgerald.
The collaboration really does make perfect sense. AZEK decking is engineered to last beautifully. So, not only will it increase the aesthetics at the stadium, it will greatly decrease the amount of upkeep needed to sustain it. AZEK decking is low maintenance and never needs to be stained, sanded or sealed. “It was extremely important for us to make a donation that would help the Fifth Third Field team, not create more work for them.” says Fitzgerald.
With 70 home games every season, the Dragon’s Lair deck is sure to take a beating. Fans will be eating hotdogs, spilling mustard and splashing beer—exactly what they should be doing at a baseball game! Fortunately, thanks to materials science innovation, AZEK is manufactured for durability and performance—it’s resistant to mold, mildew, stains, scratches, rotting and fading. “With our industry-leading 30-year Fade and Stain warranty, the Dragon’s Lair is going to look good no matter what the fans throw its way,” says Patrick Barnds, AZEK Building Products General Manager/Decking. “It’s something we’re very proud of.”
The new and improved Dragon’s Lair was unveiled during the home opener. It’s located just over left field and will be an ideal location for clients, employees and their families to enjoy a game.
