Thornton Sports show off their green credentials

Thornton Sports Ltd are preparing to show off their green credentials as they showcase their SudsSports product at Ecobuild, the world’s biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment.  

This will be the first year that Thornton Sports have exhibited at Ecobuild, which is to be held at the ExCel London from 20th – 22nd March 2012.

Thornton Sports will be showcasing an innovative sustainable drainage system which offers a cost effective solution to water management. SudsSports incorporates a lightweight, modular, interlocking plastic unit storage system within the sub-base layer of a pitch. Designed for use as a drainage component and sub-base replacement system, it provides a sustainable and cost effective combined sports surface and water management system.

The SudsSports units made from recycled, recyclable and reuseable materials provide a 95% factory formed void ratio, allowing shallow attenuation, infiltration and drainage. The units can be installed as a blanket layer underneath a pitch, or, as SudsSports conduits, to provide a ‘zero-discharge’ flood prevention solution.

Chris Stephenson, Estimator at Thornton Sports speaks of the exhibition, “This is an exciting time for SudsSports, and we’re ready to share our product with the world! Ecobuild is a great opportunity for us to showcase our credentials and let everyone know what SudsSports is all about.”

Thornton Sports will be present in the north arena of Ecobuild from Tuesday 20th March – Thursday 22nd March. Please come and say hello!
