Whether it’s for residential or commercial use, modular courts are becoming increasingly popular for sports enthusiasts. Not only do they provide a safe and enjoyable space to play your favorite court games, but they are also attractive and completely customizable! There are numerous benefits to installing sport tiles, but there are also a few things to consider before making a decision. In this article we will go over some important factors to keep in mind before making your purchase.
What type of surfaces can my court tiles be installed on?
Court tiles, like our SnapGRID® LX – Sport Tiles & Court Kits, should be installed on a hard and level base, such as concrete, asphalt, or paving stones. This will provide the best ball bounce and performance. Our exclusive SnapGRID® XXL – Sports Base & Court Panels, can be installed over a level, compact aggregate base and are specifically designed for areas where concrete and asphalt are not desired. We do not recommend installing the tiles directly over grass because it does not offer a stable base for your court and will not offer the best ball performance.
Can court tiles be used Outdoors?
Yes, absolutely! Our sport tiles and court kits are designed for both indoor and outdoor use. The tiles have UV protection and perforations that allow for proper drainage.
Why use court tiles instead of just using the concrete or asphalt?
Court tiles are not only stylish, but also offer more shock absorbency than concrete or asphalt which will help to reduce the impact on your joints. Sport tiles provide the right amount of traction for game play, concrete and asphalt can be too grippy, which can lead to strains and sprains. Less scrapes and cuts occur when diving to make a play or if a fall should happen, making these tiles a safer surface to play on. Our court tiles allow for drainage and will dry much quicker than most other surfaces, which will prevent slips and falls and allows you to get back to play much quicker. Another reason court kits and tiles and becoming more popular is because you can customize your design and add custom games lines paint to your court, so it is more functional. Custom logos can also be added to make your court even more personalized and unique. You can find these multi-sport indoor and outdoor court tiles used for basketball courts, pickleball courts, badminton courts, gaga ball pit, roller hockey rinks and many other sports surfaces.
How do you maintain your court tiles?
Court tiles are easy to clean using a broom or leaf lower to clear any debris. You can hose the tiles down to clean any additional dirt or debris that does not brush away.
