The polymeric rubber surface specification is a versatile option for multi use games areas as it can be used with a lot of different sports.
Many MUGA facilities are surfaced in EPDM polymeric rubber because it provides ideal ball bounce qualities for sports such as tennis, basketball and netball.
Running tracks and other athletics facilities can also be installed in polymeric rubber in a range of dimensions and designs to create a brightly coloured sports surface.
Multi sport polymeric sports surfaces are becoming increasingly popular throughout the UK as it lends itself to a wide range of different sports making it perfect for primary schools, community areas, leisure centres, schools, universities, colleges and sport clubs across the UK. The construction of a rubber surface involves mixing a black EPDM rubber crumb with a specialised polyurethane binder on site, the specialist rubberised sport surface is then laid in situ to a nominal depth of 15mm before having two direction spray coat of polyurethane anti slip paint which is available in a range of different colours to suit any design and specification, these include blue, red, green, and purple.
We will be more than happy to offer you additional information on multisport EPDM surfaces if required. Simply fill in the contact form provided on this page and we shall respond with all the information you need along with a quote if required.
Polymeric is a type of rubber material which can be used for a number of different things including sport surfaces. Polymeric surfacing is great for tennis, netball, basketball and more. These surfaces are created by mixing rubber granules with a polyurethane binder. After the surfacing has been installed, you may want to have a colour coating applied. The application of anti slip paint will enhance the look and play of the court and will also improve the slip resistance. For more information on this surfacing type and the colour coating which can be applied over it, please fill in our contact form and we will get back to you.
The adaptability of EPDM rubber surfacing playing characteristics make it an ideal for multisport areas such as MUGAs where football, netball, basketball, tennis and hockey are required and installation involves line marking for each of these sporting activities. Examples of these surfaces could be:
Another benefit of installing a rubberised multisport surfacing is that it is SUDS compliant (Sustainable Urban Drainage System). A SUDS compliant flooring doesn't require planning permission and allows surface water to drain freely through system and into the substrata instead of flowing directly into a local drain causing it to over burden and flood. Make sure you get in touch with us if you would like to find out more about rubberised sporting courts and their surrounding areas, and the costs to build them.
Polymeric sport surfaces are being installed in multi-use games areas (MUGAs) all over the UK and are seen by many as the perfect multi-sport flooring for many establishments such as schools, youth clubs, councils and leisure centres etc. The sport flooring is installed using a black EPDM rubber crumb that is mixed and laid in situ with a specifically formulated polyurethane binder, once cured the surface is then given 2 coasts of anti-slip paint before having the line-markings for the specific sports applied. The beauty of a rubberised sporting area is that it lends itself to a number of sports allowing you to play a wide variety of sports on the flooring. The way you get around having the line-markings for a wide variety of activities on one surface is to use a different colour for each set of lines. An example of this would be to have a blue anti slip colour coating applied to a black EPDM surfacing with white line-markings for tennis, red line-markings for basketball, yellow line-markings for football and green line-markings for tennis. A resin bound polymeric surface is a great surface option for a venue or facility where maximising usage is paramount so you can stay closest to your original requirements.
The rubber sport surface is ideally to be laid upon a seamless engineered sub base such as open textured macadam or a no fines concrete. Ideally the nearby sub base should be to a tolerance of +/- 3mm before the surfacing to give the surface the most level and even finish possible. In addition to installing external surfaces like sport facilities, we also specialise in indoor flooring with a range of resin specifications including self levelling epoxy surfaces and polyurethane screeds. Feel free to contact us if you would like some more details on these indoor surfaces for laboratories, warehouses and sports halls.
It is important to get a professional to install the rubberised surfacing when creating a sport facility to make sure the court is created to a professional standard. The steps we follow when installing the surface are:
We can then line mark the court and add any extras if required.
