Basketball Court Surfacing in Ickleton

When choosing your basketball court surfacing in Ickleton CB10 1 knowing the different type of surfaces available and their qualities can help make the decision of which surface option to have installed. Firstly, the most popular basketball facility surfacing type used is the type 1 and 2 macadam.

What is Basketball Court Surfacing?

This choice of surfacing is installed firstly with the geotextile membrane, which acts as protection the contamination. This is necessary as contamination can damage your sports zone in the short term and in the long term, so to have this system in place helps ensure that your area surfacing stays in a good playable condition. Installation of basketball facilities http://www.basketballcourtcontractors.co.uk/installation/cambridgeshire/ickleton/ in Ickleton CB10 1 is often done at schools and we can create a bespoke design which is suitable for use with a number of other sports like netball and tennis. The specification of your court is entirely up to you. If you feel that your area should not need to meet the NBA's dimensions, It's perfectly fine and we can easily fit a smaller area for you. This is common amongst our customers as many zones are being created for children so the professional dimensions would be too large. 

The next stage regarding the flooring installation is to lay an angular stone sub base and then finally the macadam tarmac and an anti-slip paint coating. These additions help the surface to be porous as water seamlessly seeps through the flooring, allowing for playable conditions at any time of the year. This again is great for both players and the owner of the area as it means the court will get much more use throughout the year. When choosing a contractor, it is crucial that you trust them as a professional. This is because if the flooring is incorrectly applied, there could be many hazards to players and the area may be of a low quality which will mean it won't last as long as it should.

Both of these choices of sports court surfacing materials have their benefits, and it's important to consider the purpose of your facility when deciding upon a court specification as the type 1 and 2 macadam surface will offer you a zone that specifically tailors towards sports, whereas the type 3 and 4 polymeric is much more suited to a wider variety of sports.
