As experts in the installation of sports facility surfacing, we offer a whole range of different surface specifications which suit each individual sport. The surface types we install include:
3G Pitch / Artificial Grass:
This surface type is ideal for football and rugby as it is infilled with a layer of rubber crumb granules which help the pitch provide natural playing characteristics. The third generation synthetic carpet is usually installed onto a shock pad which gives support to players’ joints and prevents injury while taking part in training or matches.
2G Sand Filled / Sand Dressed Synthetic Turf:
This artificial, all weather pitch specification has a layer of silica sand infill applied at the base of the synthetic grass fibres. By installing this sand the turf pile is kept upright and gives great playing qualities for football and hockey as it allows the ball to roll evenly across the pitch.
Needlepunch Synthetic Turf:
A fibre-bonded, woven artificial grass surface which is extremely durable and can come in a range of bright colours and rainbow designs. Needlepunch specifications are often used for multi-use game areas and long jump or athletics runways. The reason it’s generally used in these applications is because the flooring is durable, hard wearing and has excellent slip resistant qualities. The surface meets accreditations BS EN 15330 and BS 7188.
Polymeric Rubber Surfacing:
Our Polymeric Rubber Surface is made up of EPDM rubber granules which are mixed together with a binder. Polymeric surfaces are commonly installed for tennis courts, multi use games areas (MUGAs) and athletics tracks. An anti-slip paint coating can be applied to a polymeric sports surface to improve grip and enhance the game play qualities.
The Macadam Surface is hard wearing and requires little maintenance, its good ball bounce capabilities mean that Macadam lends itself to tennis and netball sports surfaces. These sports surfaces can be treated in an anti-slip coating which achieves a slip resistance of TRRL 75.
