What is Polymeric Surfacing?

Polymeric surfacing is a type of rubber sports surface type which can be used for many facilities like sport courts, MUGAs, athletics tracks and their surrounding area. Many MUGA facilities are installed with EPDM flooring because it is a porous flooring type which means that water can pass through easily. For this reason, the surface area will not become flooded in wet weather, meaning that the facility may be used all year round in almost any weather conditions.

This type of surfacing is great for sports like tennis, as it provides great performance characteristics.

An EPDM court can also be colour coated using a specialist anti slip paint, improving the look and playing characteristics along with the slip resistance of the facility. 

Polymeric Tennis Court Sport Surface

When choosing your nearby polymeric surface, you have a wide range of colours and line markings, including small sided tennis for young children and full size for adults and professional play.

There are various colours of polyurethane anti-slip coating to suit many different designs and specifications to make the local sport court flooring unique. The line-markings are also available in many colours so that they stand out from the rubber surface. 

The construction of this type of sports surface involves mixing rubberised granules with a specifically formulated polyurethane binders on-site and laying insitu by the method of hand lay or machine lay. Once the flooring has fully cured non-skid, anti slip paint is applied to the flooring to give the flooring colour and skid resistance. Once the moisture cure polyurethane paint has dried tennis court lines may be applied.

This specification is very popular for schools playground surfacing, multi use games areas and clubs that do different sports such as tennis basketball and more, who are looking to complete a MUGA court upgrade by installing a surface with better playing qualities for different sports.
