Most of the dartboard surrounds are made of high-quality Polyurethane (PU), a soft material in which the darts can hang easily without getting damaged. The dartboard backgrounds are easy to attach, because they only need to be clamped around the board. The surrounds all have the same size and can be used with all dartboards. Seeing as the surrounds are universal, you're not tied to a particular brand and you can choose the surround that best fits your dart track.
Types of dartboard backgrounds
Dartshopper offers two types of surrounds, namely surrounds made up of one piece and surrounds consisting of four parts. The dartboard wall protectors made up of one piece are used most, and these surrounds are made of Polyurethane (PU) and meant for professional use. These dartboard surrounds are also used during the big PDC and BDO tournaments on TV. Besides the surround rings made up of one piece, there are also surrounds with four pieces, which consist of four jigsaw pieces that can easily be clamped around a board. These 4-piece surrounds are made of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA), which looks like a foam-like material and protects the darts when they end up beside the board. These 4-piece surrounds are generally cheaper than the surround rings and very suitable for starting darts players who are just getting to know the world of darts.
