Description - Indoor Sports Tiles XL are the largest sport floor tiles we carry. At 18” x 18”, these tiles make it a lot faster to install regulation sized courts such as basketball courts, tennis courts, and volleyball courts among others. These tiles are built to last as well, and are backed by a 16 year warranty. These tiles do provide more shock absorbency, compared to concrete, which can be multiplied with the use of a rubber underlayment which can be laid underneath the floor. The underlay will also give the floor a springy feel which makes playing high impact sports a lot easier. These solid surfaced tiles come in many different colors allowing you to create many unique patterns and designs and can be painted with the desired lines necessary for your sport of choice.
Material - Constructed of the best high quality impact resistant polypropylene (extremely durable hard thermoplastic polymer) available. This ensures color fastness, durability, and chemical resistance in each and every Sport-Loc tile.
Size - 18" x 18"
Thickness - 5/8"
Weight - 2.0 Lb per tile

Indoor Sports Tiles XL are easy to maintain. Cleaning of these multiuse tiles typically includes:
- Vacuuming or sweeping any loose crumbs, dust, or debris from the court tiles when necessary.
- Hose off or damp mop the sport floor tiles with a mild soap and water mixture for tough or caked on dirt and/or stains.
Indoor Sports Tiles XL are easy to install. Installation of these floor tiles typically includes:
- Clean your sub floor so that it is free of all dirt, dust, grease, or other foreign material.
- When installing the Sports-Loc tiles, we recommend starting in one corner of the room and working your way out from there.
- If your flooring is going up to a wall, make sure the female side (loops) of the tile is facing away from the wall.
- After placing the tiles in a perpendicular pattern, proceed to fill the rest of the area with whole tiles to your predetermined size and design.
- When you come up to a edge, wall or object, don’t worry. Just measure the area and cut the tiles with a sharp utility, tile cutter, or table saw.
- When trimming the tiles into place, make sure you leave about a 3/4” space between the tiles and the outside of the court or near a while to allow for expansion and contraction of the floor.
- Once the tiles are in place, you can then snap in the edge pieces, if you purchased them.
Game Line Application:
- Make sure when applying painted game lines that you use painters tape or 3M 2060 tape to outline the lines that need to be painted.
For painted game lines, you will want to use a two part polyurethane paint.
