Impermeable Acrylic Sports Surface for Tennis
Proflex is an impervious acrylic surface offering optimum cushioning.
There is a version of Proflex for each ITF Court Pace class. It is suitable for use in conventional and wheelchair tennis playing.
The system comprises a high quality 6mm* rubber mat which is bonded and coated using durable textured polymers to produce a superior cushioned tennis surface.
*Varying thicknesses of cushioning mat can be supplied on request.
As well as being extremely durable and resistant to wear, the cushioning effect will remain constant throughout seasonal temperature variations and over many years of use. Because the cushioning mat is prefabricated to a uniform thickness this will allow a true ball bounce on all areas of the court.
Other types of Proflex
ITF Pace Classifications
Normally, Proflex is available in versions that have ITF Pace Classifications of 2, 3 and 4. But, by varying the formulation of the components used in Proflex it is possible to produce surfaces with ITF Pace Classifications of 1(Slow) and 5(Fast) in addition.
The materials used in these surfaces are environmentally friendly, using recycled rubber for the cushioning mat, together with solvent free adhesives and water based polymer coatings.
The standard range of colours comprises those shown here.
