SudsSports™ rooftop
sports facilities

The lightweight nature of Thornton Sports’ unique, patented SudsSports™ system provides the ideal solution for the development of exciting new rooftop facilities.

Specially designed and toughened plastic units used as a sub-base replacement layer, create a void between the surface and the rooftop structure. This simplifies the construction process and offers a cost-effective and practical solution to an otherwise logistically problematic project. Due to the innovative way in which the units are designed, they also perform as an excellent drainage and water management system.

A variety of different surface types can be installed in conjunction with the SudsSports™ rooftop system, including:

  • artificial grass surfaces
  • macadam surfaces
  • polymeric surfaces

Rooftop facilities can therefore be developed to accommodate a variety of different sports, with 5-a-side football being a very common choice for these spectacular settings. The flexible nature of these facilities also means that they can be designed to accommodate functions such as weddings and drinks receptions.

For examples see the adjacent downloads section.

Currently only provided by Thornton Sports, our SudsSports™ rooftop system is leading the way in this latest new development in sports facilities.
