At Armor courts we will be happy to guide you through the many different types of surfaces that are available through our comprehensive line up of manufacturers we use for Modular Sports Flooring.
PVC stands for (Polyvinyl Chloride) and is used for many different applications from construction materials, bottles, membership cards, or in our line of work interlocking sport tiles that can be used for indoor or outdoor sports. These tiles are used for just about any sport such as basketball, tennis, pickleball, volleyball, etc.
PVC tiles have some advantages over the traditional Acyclic painted finishes which may be a practical solution for your needs. Here are some pros and cons to consider.
They can a little slippery when wet however they dry out very quickly in full sun, but not applicable for the indoor application.
Because of the top side design they can feel a little rough on bare feet so athletic shoes are always recommended.
The color is very vibrant in the beginning but begin fading the moment they are in full sun and there is no practical way to repaint them and replacement can be costly so if long term esthetics are important an acrylic painted finish maybe a better choice.
Although they can be pinned down, they may tend to shift as they naturally expand and contract with temperature changes.
