Customer Questions

Ask a Question
How would this product hold up having cars parked on it, with a compacted gravel base?
You can park a car on our Outdoor Sports Tiles. These tiles are made from hard polypropylene plastic which is the same material all of our hard plastic garage tiles are made of.
Do these tiles have a fall rating? I want to use them as a play area for toddlers.
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles do not have a fall height rating.
I purchased the black court tiles for my gym floor and it shows a lot of scuff marks. Is there something I can put on the tiles to prevent more scuff marks? Is there something I can use to remove scuff marks?
There isn't any way to prevent scuff marks on our Outdoor Sports Tiles, but you can clean scuff marks with a soap and water solution and a hose. For tougher scuffs, you can use a magic eraser.
How do you recommend adding lines to a sport court? I thought a saw painting them on mentioned? What type of paint?
We recommend using a Krylon paint to place the lines on your court. The best way to do this is to stencil out the court lines with two pieces of cardboard leaving space in between so you can paint the lines onto your court. This will help to keep your line nice and neat and will also help to minimize the paint splatter.
Does this come apart and add-on easily, or is it permanently attached after laying it down? We move a lot and would like to be able to move it with us.
The beauty of our Outdoor Sports Tiles is that they are modular and can be easily added on to or moved as need be.
I want to install an outside sport court, and the subfloor can't be concrete or asphalt. Are there any other options for a subfloor? I need to have drainage.
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles are best installed over concrete or asphalt, but if either is not an option, you can install these tiles over compacted gravel base. This installation will allow for the proper drainage you desire.
Can we put these tiles over grass?
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles should be installed over a solid surface. Acceptable subfloors would be concrete and asphalt. Installing these tiles over grass is not recommended because when it rains, the playing surface will become unstable, but many of our customers have installed these tiles over grass with success.
How would these hold up to a 210 lb man doing some crossfit activities - box jumps, skip rope, burpees, and maybe dropping 100-200 lbs of rubber bumpers on them?
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles are made from sturdy polypropylene plastic and can withstand the weight of a 210 lb man doing CrossFit activities on them. These tiles are also able to withstand the dropping of 100-200 pounds of bumper plates on them.

I have a 20'W X 20'7" long concrete slab. Can you design a basketball flooring to fit?

I need to extend the driveway into the dirt where the BB goal is. What type of base is needed for the sports tiles? Do you have an installer in the Houston area?
We recommend installing our Outdoor Sports Tiles over concrete or asphalt. We do not have any installers in the Houston area, but these tiles are very DIY friendly and can be easily installed over a weekend. If you would like to find a qualified installer in your area, we recommend using Angie's List or Home Advisor.
Looking to create an outdoor basketball court tile floor adjacent to a garage. A car would drive over tiles to enter the garage. Would these hold up or would you recommend something else?
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles can withstand vehicle traffic on them on a daily basis. They are made from the same plastic as our hard plastic garage tiles.
How do the tiles stay in place? Once in place do they shift? What are the edges used for, to hold the tiles in place?
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles interlock with each other which helps to keep your floor in place. Once all of the tiles are installed, the weight of the floor keeps the tiles in place. The edging helps to reduce the tripping hazard that can be present in certain installations. Most installations do not need edging.
Can these tiles be installed over decking planks, made for a deck?
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles can be installed over decking planks as long as the gap between the boards is not too wide.
The floor where it will be installed must be even?
We recommend installing our Outdoor Sports Tiles on a solid, even surface. Some surface imperfections are ok, but if there are huge divots or holes in your subsurface, the integrity of the floor may be compromised.
I live in the Pacific Northwest and we have a lot of debris that falls down from the cedar and maple trees. Each fall we end up with everything from small pine cones to large leaves on our cement court. Typically we just use a blower to clean the court, which works well considering the smooth cement surface. How would this type of debris effect the outdoor sport tiles and would I still be able to clear it using a blower?
The debris will not affect our Outdoor Sports Tiles. You will still be able to use a blower to remove the debris. The only issue you may run encounter is that the debris may get in between and under the floor.

How much click-clack noise do these make when playing basketball versus the concrete itself?
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles will make more noise than playing on concrete. To help reduce the noise, we recommend placing an underlay under the tiles. Not only will this help to deaden the noise, but it will also add bounce and cushion to your court helping to protect your joints.
Do these tiles help with sound proofing? (bouncing basketballs can be loud) Thanks!
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles themselves do not help with soundproofing. We do offer an underlayment that can be installed under the tiles to help quiet the floor. The underlayment we suggest is our 2mm Shockpad.
Will this work for a floor in an entrance to a building?
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles would not be the best solution for the entrance to a building. Even though they are vented to allow water to flow through them, they still can be a little slick when wet and may pose a potential slipping hazard depending on the types of shoes worn by people as they are entering the building.
I have a smaller cement basketball court with a sand box the same size next to it. I want to make the sport court cover both areas. Do I need to pour cement in the sand box area?

Cant, we get the male and female edges in other colors besides the gunmetal grey?
We only offer the Outdoor Sports Tiles edges in grey. You can get other colors of edging on our Grid-Loc pages. These edges are a little larger than the edging we recommend for our sports tiles, but will still interlock with them.
Do you have a prefab design with lines for a 30' x 60' pickleball court?
We don't have a pickleball court kit yet, but we hope to have one soon. In the meantime, you can order the tiles and then paint on lines. We recommend using a two-part polyurethane paint or 3M 2060 tape.
Has anyone installed on top of pavers?
You can install our Outdoor Sports Tiles over pavers. These tiles can be installed over any hard, flat surface.
Can you install them on carpet?
You can install our Outdoor Sports Tiles over a commercial grade, low pile carpet with ease. When installed over a plush, thick padded residential carpet, these tiles could separate a bit creating a potential trip hazard. They can still be installed over the thicker carpet, but this issue would need to be factored in.
Do they need to be removed during the winter? Can they withstand snow & ice? Could they be installed over tamped sand or does it need to be gravel?
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles are made from a hard plastic polypropylene and can withstand the elements without being damaged, so there is no need to remove them for the winter.

When falling on knees will this court cause more abrasion than a wood floor? Concrete?
Since our Outdoor Sports Tiles are made from hard plastic, falling on them would be similar to falling on concrete when it comes to abrasion. As far as how hurt you will get from falling on the floor will depend on if you add one of our rubber underlays under your court floor. If you add an underlay under the tiles, falling on the court itself would have a similar impact as falling on a standard wood court.
What kind of drainage works best for concrete slab beneath the tiles?
You will not need to add any drainage under our Outdoor Sports Tiles. These tiles will allow the water to evaporate from under the tiles. Also if there is a slope to your concrete pad, the water will flow off of the concrete pad to the ground around the concrete pad or a drain.
What is the permeability of the outdoor sports tiles?
Our Outdoor sports Tiles are vented, so water will flow freely through and under the tiles.
Nothing prevents these tiles from being used indoors is there? Sometimes water will pool on my gym's rubber flooring and get a little slick. These "grates" would eliminate that.
You can use our Outdoor Sports Tiles indoors and out as flooring in virtually any space. These tiles can be installed over any solid, flat surface and would create a slip-resistant floor. The vents are what help to keep these tiles slip-resistant when water is present.
Is it slippery when the tiles are wet? How long does the color from the tile last? Will the color fade in 1 year or more? How does a basketball bounce on this tile? Some flooring the basketball bounce terribly?
Our Outdoor Sports Tiles will be a little slippery when wet. Since they are vented, water can flow through and under the tiles helping to keep the tiles somewhat slip-resistant. These tiles are UV stable, meaning the color will look virtually like new for as long as you own the floor. Basketballs bounce excellently on these tiles, which is why we push them as the perfect flooring option for any size and type of basketball court.
