Basketball

We offer surfaces for both indoor and outdoor Basketball play. Our ‘dual durometer’ flooring system for indoors is an environmentally friendly, seamless, low maintenance surface. Different performance characteristics can be achieved using various system levels of shock absorption and surface firmness. Our surfaces for outdoor basketball courts are utilised more in wet or damp conditions due to their superior texture and grip. It is a popular choice for community-funded facilities as they find new ways to increase utilisation and physical activity. The same systems are being installed at clubs and schools as they introduce a new generation of players into Basketball.

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

Sustainability in Action

Laykold introduces recycled tennis ball mats! Over 325 Million tennis balls are produced worldwide each year, and being used for only a few minutes in professional matches to several games for recreational players.

All of these tennis balls eventually land up in land fills. APT are working to reverse this problem! The industry is banding together to take those tennis balls and recycle them by turning them into new Laykold court surfaces!

Finally, a cradle to grave solution for the millions of tennis balls produced annually. Just another initiative by APT – Advanced Polymer Technology.

Laykold surfaces normally require only minimal maintenance. However, the amount of maintenance required will depend largely on the local atmospheric environment and court usage. Environments subject to heavy airborne pollution, such as dust, leaves, and traffic fumes, are classified as high maintenance areas. Low maintenance areas enjoy low levels of pollution and dust, such as indoor, and are classified accordingly. Contaminants and debris should be removed promptly. For specific cleaning and maintenance instructions please contact our friendly staff.

Each basketball court is different, it has its own unique levels of use, maintenance programs vary and local conditions contribute to the lifetime of a surface. Netball clubs surfaces approx. 4 – 5 years. Private and low-use courts approx. 7-10 years. If you are unsure or if your court needs a health check please contact us or an APT Accredited Installer to assess your court.

Absolutely, please speak to one of our friendly staff to obtain the necessary specifications for our Laykold product range.

No. Cracks can be filled, but damaged substrates are not “fixed” by resurfacing. Cracks will reappear over time. For more information, please see Cracking Of Asphalt Tennis Courts

You must wait a minimum of 24 hours after the court lines have dried; 48 hours is recommended.

It is important to understand court surfaces are applied differently than other types of “paints”. Natural variations in the finish are to be expected. For more information, please see Observations On Newly Coated Tennis Courts

Scuff marks are unavoidable. They will become less noticeable with time. Shoes with non- marking soles are recommended, black soles should be avoided. For more information, please see Athletic Shoe Marks
