The PP Tiles comes in various colours, such as, Blue, Green, Red, Yellow, etc. Hence, you can get the eye-catching designs for courts.
3. Ventilated Design
The model of the PP Tiles is specially designed to make the base “breathe”. The pores on the tiles serves various benefits to the court. First, because of these pores, the water & dust does not get logged on the surface of the court. It has been seen that, water logging during rains on the traditional courts results in damaging the courts more than anything else. Also, the base (concrete or asphalt), after the application of traditional acrylic courts, does not able to breathe, hence, results in developing the cracks on the surface. While with the PP Tiles, water does not logged on the PP Tiles surface. They passes through the holes, and flows through the drainage of the court.
4. Shock absorption
Along with that, it ha been noticed that because of playing long sessions on hard courts, most of the people (especially 45+ ) experience knee/joints pains. In order to rectify this problem, our PP Courts are designed to provide optimal cushioning. With 15.3 mm of thickness, and well-designed bottom patterns, you will get desired shock absorption.
