10. Why is the Sport Court surface important? Can’t I just play on painted concrete?
This is about the safety of your children, and no other outdoor sports surface can deliver a better combination of shock absorption, ball response, traction, and playability than our PowerGame™ outdoor modular flooring.

Our other sport flooring options offer comparable safety benefits.

1. Does Sport Court of Massachusetts flooring require a climate-controlled building?
Unlike many other indoor flooring systems, Sport Court sports surfaces perform in a wide variety of climate conditions. Extremes of humidity, cold and heat generally present no problem to the playability and endurance of our sports floors, making Sport Court a great alternative to wood and other sports floors.
2. How do Sport Court of Masschusetts floors compare cost-wise to other alternatives?
Sport Court modular flooring provides durability and multi-sport playability at an affordable price. Sport Court is typically less expensive than even basic suspended wood systems, and competes well against most other synthetic alternatives. From a life-cycle cost perspective, low maintenance costs and long-term durability make Sport Court the smart budget choice.
3. How is Sport Court flooring affected by moisture?
Unlike wood and most synthetic floors, Sport Court’s modular systems are virtually unaffected by water, whether in vapor form emitting from concrete slabs or sub-surface, or even (in most circumstances) in case of flood or submersion. Many Sport Court surfaces have been used to retrofit other systems damaged by flooding (and where the possibility of future floods exist). The polypropylene used in our surface is impervious to water damage.
4. Does Sport Court use any hazardous chemicals or materials in its manufacturing processes or installation?
No. Sport Court products meet all safety standards and contain no hazardous chemicals. Some paint and coatings require ventilation during application, but leave no harmful residues or compounds behind. In fact, Sport Court is the only ISO 14001 sports flooring manufacturer in the United States—the international standard for environmental controls.

Ball response is one of the performance characteristics governed and measured in the DIN standards, which are the acknowledged metrics for basketball floors.

11. How does maintenance compare with other sports floors?
Sport Court modular surfaces are easily and inexpensively maintained compared to most other sports surfaces.
