Sports Surfacing Design

Our team can offer various sports court designs. We will offer various colours when installing the pitches. You can also alter the designs to suit your preferences. If you already have a polymeric or macadam court installed, we may alter the existing designs by colour coating the courts in different colours. A popular design for these surfaces is two-tone green.

Our main aim is to make certain you are happy with the final design. We will ask you for your ideas and give you our recommendations if required. Please do not hesitate to speak to us about and requests you may have. We work hard to ensure you get exactly what you want, so please just get in touch if you have any ideas for your sports facility.

How is a Sports Court Maintained?

As well as installing various sport surfaces, our team can also carry out maintenance services. The maintenance we provide is applicable for all of the surfaces we install. For hard courts like polymeric and macadam areas, we carry out routine cleaning and painting along with repairs and resurfacing if necessary. Maintaining synthetic turf is slightly different. We can carry out various projects including rejuvenation, renovation, deep cleaning, drag-brushing, resurfacing and upgrades.

It is highly recommended to get the facility maintained regularly to ensure the surface remains in good condition. In order to prevent costly repairs, it is a good idea to have any rips and tears or cracks in the surface repaired as soon as possible. Regular inspections should also be carried out as part of the sports facility maintenance, as this will allow you to notice any damage early on. This will then prevent expensive resurfaces and will make sure the surface is safe to use.

What Surface is Available for Sports Pitches?

There are various surfaces that we install. It is important to think about the sport you want to play before choosing the surface. Our experts can help you pick the best sports pitch surfacing to install for the desired sport. Different surfaces will be better for different sports. For example, 3G surfacing is great for football and rugby, whereas macadam is better for basketball, tennis and netball.

The surfaces which we can install consist of 2G sand filled, 2G sand dressed, 3G surfacing, macadam, polymeric and needlepunch multisport synthetic surfacing. Our specialists can also recommend surfaces for multi use games areas. We aim to offer the best advice and will complete the installation of each surface type to the best possible standard.

How Much is Astroturf?

We are often asked questions about how much it costs to install astroturf pitches or other sport surfaces. The prices for these facilities really do vary depending on several factors. These include your location, the area size for the project, and the playing qualities you need. One of our experts would be happy to discuss a quote with you. Please fill in our contact form so we may get back to you as soon as possible. This type of work is often carried out in schools and leisure centres. Our team complete many projects for a wide range of clients. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions about our products or the services that we can provide.

Since the price of astroturf pitches can vary for each individual, there is no approximate price. We would recommend thinking about what you are willing to spend. Therefore you can specify your spending budget when contacting a professional installation team.

Installing a Sport Facility

When planning the installation, we ask the organisation the type of sport which they will be playing on the pitch. Then depending on this and what their budget is, we help them decide the best type of surface material. This is because each surface has different performance qualities:

  • 3G artificial grass is ideal for football and rugby
  • 2G turf is great for football and hockey
  • Needlepunch is commonly used for multisports
  • Polymeric is ideal for tennis, athletics and more
  • Macadam has a good amount of ball bounce for sports such as tennis, basketball and netball

RFU, RFL, IRB Sports Artificial Pitch Long Pile Synthetic Grass

RFU, RFL, IRB Sports Artificial Pitch Long Pile Synthetic Grass is installed onto full sized rugby fields which is a 3rd generation synthetic turf carpet that is filled with sand washed and dried silica sand and then recycled rubber granules which gives the playing performance necessary for rugby testing.

The testing of the sports pitches includes the likes of the ball bounce, vertical deformity and force reduction which is crucial to try and make sure the players enjoy playing on this type of all weather pitch surface. The astroturf is designed to play similar to natural grass but obviously has the advantages of not having to cancel or postpone any fixtures.

The rugby football union, rugby football league and international rugby board generally have the same parameters for the playing characteristics and this generally needs to be a long piled artificial grass carpet because this allows the correct depth to cushion the fall of the players. The standard depths are usually 40mm thick, 50mm depth and a 60mm pile height system for the longer piled astroturf.

If you require any information on the size of the rugby artificial fields, costs of the construction, details of the insitu rubber shockpad or previous case studies please call 01625445760 or visit our website to check out further blogs on the synthetic turf surfacing options and products available.
