Outdoor courts like basketball courts are designed with specially made floors that provide traction, while still allowing athletes the ability to slide. However, over time, this traction can decrease significantly through corrosion and abrasion. As a result, anyone can slip and fall on the playing surface, which can lead to costly injuries.
Courts like with outdoor basketball are designed to provide the needed tracking for athletes to move comfortably. However, dust, dirt and corrosion can cause courts to become sleek, which can lead to unfortunate slips and falls.
But how do you ensure your basketball, tennis or pickleball court has the needed traction? The best way to fix these types of surfaces is with a non-slip sports paint coating. However, it needs to be a specially formulated coating that is designed to work on outdoor courts and benefit the athlete. When the wrong type of coating is applied, it can affect movement and the friction of the surface, which can make the surfaces slippery and hazardous in damp and wet conditions. To avoid this, the anti-slip paint coating should contain certain texturing agents that provide good grip in both dry and wet conditions.
