Sports Line Marking Paint
Once installed the surface is covered in a coloured anti-slip paint of either acrylic or polyurethane allowing you to personalise the colour and design of the court. The amount and concentration of this paint will determine the slip resistance of it, basketball and tennis require a slip resistant of TRRL 60 where as Netball requires a higher slip resistance of TRRL 75.
Costs and prices can vary dependent on the size of area requiring basketball line markings however the official size and dimensions of a basketball court are 25m x 15m and just like the surface can be applied in a number of different colours e.g. white, red, and blue, etc and are usually applied in anti-slip Polyurethane paint. This method of sports line marking would also be the same if the surface was a Polymeric Multi Sport 15 which is another surface that would be effective for Basketball.
