Resurfacing Artificial All Weather Pitches for Football

Many schools and sports clubs are now looking into resurfacing their artificial all weather pitches for football to ensure that the correct playing qualities are applied. These organisations have previously had sand filled synthetic turf surfaces installed to use as multi use sports facilities. These specifications are fine for facilities which are used for a variety of sports, but 3G synthetic grass is now being recommended when football is the primary sport.

Our company can offer a number of products and services regarding the construction of football pitch facilities. We are able to complete projects in many locations including schools, colleges and sports clubs with a range of sport surface specifications available. Our aim is to be the best value contractors in order to produce a good quality service.

The resurfacing process we carry out may incorporate all aspects of the work including developing a specification, preparing foundations and the installation of the 3G football surfacing. For an all weather pitch resurfacing project we'll start by ripping up the existing surface. If there is already a synthetic grass carpet installed, the groundworks underneath will likely still be suitable for the new installation. However if the existing surfacing is natural grass, we will need to excavate and prepare a sub base for the new carpet to be installed onto.

The 3G synthetic turf specifications are the most popular surface types chosen for football pitches since these give the most natural playing qualities. This third generation carpet is designed with sand and rubber infill which helps to create a stable playing surface which is comfortable for players. We can offer a range of designs so you can choose one which will perfectly suit your budget and the performance qualities you need. The resurfacing process is becoming very common with schools and clubs who have an old synthetic turf surface which needs to be replaced.

To ensure that these surfaces are suitable for use in wet weather, they are designed to be porous so water will drain through into the ground rather than sitting on top of the pitch. This is ideal for facilities at schools and clubs where the surfacing needs to be used regularly during football training and matches. While resurfacing artificial all weather pitches for football we can create a drainage system which will ensure that water is removed from the surface quickly and efficiently.

We highly recommend that you set up a routine maintenance plan for your football pitch to avoid damage and ensure that the synthetic carpet stays in top condition. Preservation schemes consist of both proactive cleaning and reactive repairs. We provide a number of different expert services when it comes to football pitches including drag brushing, infill restoration and joint repairs to broken carpets. Through proactive cleaning methods, the artificial turf will go through a extensive clean to get rid of any kind of toxic contamination and ensure that the surface remains porous. If your facility starts to hold water and flood, this can trigger serious damage to the pitch in the long run and it can reduce its product lifespan. This might then result in costly repairs, therefore we advise that you stick to the routine maintenance methods.

If you are thinking about resurfacing artificial all weather pitches for football, we can complete this work and provide you with a brand new sports surface.
