Basketball

RSCAPE builds the best Basketball courts in the industry.

Constructing courts with the proper materials will not only extend the life of the court, but will also help it to retain its original appearance for longer without as much maintenance. On older courts, concrete or asphalt makes up the flooring because they are durable, all-weather materials. After playing on these surfaces for prolonged periods of time, however, they may take a toll on a player’s body, causing pain in a player’s ankles, knees, hip joints, or even lower back.

These rigid surfaces make for a high impact court, and your bones and joints are absorbing all the shock. Updated courts generally turn to more forgiving basketball court surface choices, such as PU or modular sports surfacing. Both athletes and trainers can appreciate the superior traction, even in less than ideal weather. The bounce-back or shock absorption from the floor also augments both athletic performance and safety of the facilities.

Surface Choices

Each surface has different benefits in terms of maintenance and performance so the decision depends on client’s preferences. There are currently three types of synthetic sports surfaces for outdoor courts:

  • PU SURFACES – Reliable and consistent grip traction, easy on the joints, fewer sports related injuries, very low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing.
  • MODULAR SPORTS FLOORING – Excellent performance, extremely low maintenance, reduces instances of sports related injuries, fast drying and quick draining, available in a wide range of colors
  • ACRYLIC HARD COURTS – Weather resistant, available in vibrant and fade-resistant colors, hard surface, easy to maintain, improved performance with lower maintenance.
