1. Locating Box #1 and Sport Tile #1
ModuTile ships most basketball courts using LTL (Less Than Truck Load) carrier, so the boxes will not get separated during transit. We pack the product in boxes and palletize the boxes. This allows any residential customer to store and move the tiles conveniently since most residential customers do not own a pallet jack or forklift that would be required if we use a 9-stack tile method. However, you can request 9-stack tile packaging after purchase.
We mark all boxes numerically starting with Box #1. When you open the box, you should see tile #1 on top of the box. We label the first sets of tiles so that you can understand the sequence.
Each order will come with a printed installation guide. If you do not receive the installation guide, please contact ModuTile customer support and request it. We will gladly email you a PDF version. Please note that on custom court orders, we may provide additional instructions specific to your order.
2. Point of View
Use this installation guide with the above Installation Diagram. The point of view for assembling the tiles is standing at the baseline behind the backboard and facing the 3-point line. The footprint icon located at the bottom center of the Installation Diagram illustrates the point of view.
3. Installation Starting Point
On standard orders, locate the basketball court installation starting point at the bottom left of the diagram. Therefore, if you are standing behind the backboard facing toward the 3-point line, the starting point would be to your left Baseline (AKA “end line”) corner of the court. If you begin at the wrong starting point, the basketball court lines will be misaligned. The bottom left of the Installation Diagram (number 3) illustrates the installation starting point.
