Some of you might be thinking, isn’t it obvious to use a dartboard wall protector? Well, it turns out not everyone uses one. We got asked this question so many times by customers that we thought we would write an article about it. If you are playing darts with friends or at the pub and they don’t offer a protective shield to prevent your darts from striking the wall and leaving a hole or marks, you should bring your own dartboard wall protector. We offer several different types of high-quality acrylic dartboard wall protectors to suit any taste and space requirements.
There are three main types of durable, thick clear acrylic dart board protective shields: – Dart boards that attach to the board. Hanging and free-standing dart boards: ideal for pubs and bars that do not want to damage their walls while still providing a protective shield. While these do protect your wall, I recommend to lean it against the wall instead of hanging it. – Extra thick 50mm / 2in dartboard wall protector. This is the strongest dartboard wall protector on the market and can even be used to lean against a wall if you want.
Dartboard Cabinet as a Protector
Dartboard Cabinets: these are not always a great solution when you play darts at home, but when playing in a pub or bar they add extra advantages such as the ability to add scoreboards and also save space.
So if you want to keep your wall looking nice and clean I recommend bringing your own dartboard shield and leaning it against the wall instead of hanging, that way you won’t damage your walls and can still protect yourself from other players that don’t use a protective shield.
Dartboard Surround as Protector
Dartboard Surrounds: these are great if you want to protect the wall but also add extra style to your game. This dartboard surrounds come in different shapes and sizes so it is important to order the one that fits your needs best. Dartboard surrounds can be used in bars, homes or even for industrial use.

Polystyrene insulation: if you are looking for an alternative to styrofoam, this is your best option. This can be also used with electronic dart boards by keeping them in their original box or suitcase. Some people use foam pipe insulation and others even use corrugated polystyrene panels to make sure the board does not move an inch.

Carpet: this is a great way to protect your wall if you are playing darts at home with friends. Simply roll out some carpeting on the floor and have the darts bounce off of it so they don’t hit your walls.

Old Clothes as Protector of your wall
Old Clothes: we have seen people use old clothes to protect their walls, but of course the problem with these is that you don’t want darts going through your favorite shirt. If you can get a friend to wear it and face the wall then you should be fine and won’t damage your wall.
If you are playing in a bar or at a work, you can leave your score on the wall to keep track of how many darts you have left. You can also play in teams and follow normal rules but instead of scoring each dart stroke counts as one point towards the team total. This is a great way to add some fun and excitement to any dart game. If you are playing darts for money, it is important to keep track of the score so you don’t have to waste time figuring it out later.
This can be done by using high-quality dartboards or with chalkboards that are easily cleaned off at the end of the game. This will be a lot more fun than keeping an official tally on your phone or smart device because it gives your friends something to compete with and will make for a more exciting game.
