It’s important for kids to enjoy a healthy lifestyle which includes plenty of exercise, this is why it’s vital that schools and clubs have top quality sports facilities which can be used for a range of activities. Polymeric surfacing is commonly installed by sports court builders as it provides great playing characteristics for a number of sports including tennis, basketball and athletics.
We would be happy to give you a quote for any projects you are looking to carry out so don’t hesitate to contact our team today. These facilities are commonly installed at schools, sports clubs and leisure centres, but we can create bespoke designs to suit many locations.
Polymeric Surface Specification
The specifications and designs which sports court builders use for installing polymeric surfacing can vary greatly for each different project, whether it’s a tennis court, multi use games area or athletics track. Dimensions and surface types can be altered to meet individual budgets and requirements to ensure you get the best sports facility for your organisation. Polymeric sports surfaces are installed at schools, clubs and leisure centres throughout the UK and each project is completely unique with no set price of specification. Costs and prices for polymeric sports facilities vary depending on a number of factors including area size, project location and access to site, as well as the surfacing specification and design of the facility.
We have completed many installation projects for this type of surfacing at schools, colleges, clubs and even domestic homes. Our experienced tennis court builders can create a bespoke design and specification to suit your budget. Many different colour options are available, and contrasting line markings can be applied to suit a range of sports including tennis, basketball and netball.
The first part of the installation process for polymeric surfacing is laying down a geotextile membrane to prevent any weeds from growing up into the surface. Next, a sub base is installed by the sports court builders, this will typically be a dynamic stone sub base made up of reduced fines angular stone which allows water to pass through it. Then a macadam base layer will be applied into the stone sub base, and finally the polymeric EPDM rubber surfacing is installed on top of the macadam base. The polymeric surfacing system is completely permeable, meaning it allows for good water drainage to prevent flooding and waterlogging of the surface. Sports court builders can also apply anti slip paint coatings and line markings in a variety of bright colours to enhance the performance qualities and provide accurate scoring for different sports and athletic events.
