Our premium oil-based squash court paint was developed over 15 years ago so it has stood the test of time as a product on the market. It has been specially formulated for use on squash court surfaces and provides: excellent durability, colour retention, scuff resistance, coverage, easy application and adhesion.
The durability of our squash court paint is what sets it apart from the competition. Most squash court paints mark and scuff very easily but due to ours being made on a polyurethane resin it withstands a lot of what you throw at it, reducing the amount of maintenance required.
We have spent time to ensure that the finish of our paint has a very low glare affect on the players on the court. We did this by tinkering with the sheen levels and tinting every tin every so slightly.
After developing the product we knew the importance of getting recognition and approval from external bodies. So we got our squash court paint endorsed and approved by England Squash & Racketball & Scottish Squash. These great endorsements took us 4 years to achieve getting it tested to the industry standards meaning you can have peace of mind in the quality of our paint.

Applying our squash court paint is a simple process.
Prior to applying the paint, it is essential to thoroughly clean the walls to remove any dirt, dust, or grease. This ensures our paint sticks to the substrate rather than the grease or dirt. Next, it is recommended to lightly sand down the walls using fine-grit sandpaper. This step helps to smooth out any imperfections whilst aiding adhesion of our coating as it gives our paint something to grip to.
If there is any faulty or damaged coating on the walls, it is crucial to remove it completely before proceeding with the application. This can be done by scraping or using a suitable paint remover, followed by thorough cleaning and sanding of the affected areas. If you were to paint over the top of a faulty coating our paint will only stick as good as the paint underneath.
For new or bare surfaces, it is advisable to thin our squash court paint down by approximately 20% using white spirit. This helps to enhance the paint’s workability and promotes better penetration into the court substrate. Stir the paint thoroughly to ensure a consistent mixture before starting the application process.
Using the right equipment plays an important part in the application process. Use a good quality brush or roller that will not only hold enough paint but also leave a smooth finish. Allow the first coat to dry completely before recoating, this is often 16-24 hours but is dependant on atmospheric conditions.
We recommend two coats as a finish to ensure full coverage and no misses in the coating.
