Synthetic 3G Sports Surfacing Contractors

There are a wide variety of artificial grass sport surfacing materials available, each one has individual qualities which are better suited to different sports and the requirements of each project. 3G synthetic turf is a popular choice for organisations such as schools and sports clubs who want to replace a worn out natural grass pitch with a brand new top quality sports facility. 

The 3G artificial sport pitch surfacing is made up of a synthetic turf carpet which is infilled with sand and rubber particles, this infill is installed at the base of the grass fibres and helps to maintain natural playing characteristics for the sport surface. The construction process for a 3G grass system includes installing either a dynamic (stone) or an engineered (macadam) sub base to give stable foundations, then an impact absorbing shockpad, then finally the synthetic turf carpet. Synthetic third generation sport surfacing can be installed in a range of dimensions and specifications with pile heights ranging from 40mm to 60mm to suit different sports such as football and rugby. The synthetic grass sports pitch surfacing system is completely porous, allowing for excellent water drainage which means the facility can be used in all weather conditions, this is a great quality for organisations such as schools and leisure centres.

Due to the advancements of artificial grass surfacing technology in recent years, 3G synthetic turf sports facilities can withstand a lot of use and require relatively little maintenance compared to a natural grass pitch. However it's still important to keep up a regular maintenance plan for a 3G pitch to ensure it's kept in top condition and is safe for use by everyone. The durability of this artificial sports surfacing means it can help generate extra revenue for an organisation as it can be rented out to clubs and teams for training sessions and matches in the evening. Extra equipment such as floodlighting and fencing can be installed along with the 3G surfacing to help make the most of the facility and keep it secure.

Sports and Safety Surfaces are experienced contractors in the installation of these 3G synthetic turf sports facilities and regularly carry out construction projects at a variety of locations throughout the UK.

"Why bother doing anything? They'd look lovely in a lawn in the Spring + you should get rid of them for good once you've mown them down on the first grasscut, they'll soon die off anyway so the "problem" should go away. "
