Our rugby surfaces, similar to football, employ third generation (3G) technology using synthetic fibre made to replicate natural grass. Unlike the old style synthetic surfaces, 3G surfaces are filled with sand and rubber granules, not just sand. The rubber helps to keep the synthetic grass upright, greatly reducing abrasiveness and minimising friction burns.
Rugby surfaces are extremely durable and specifically designed to meet the rigours of competitive rugby training at the highest level. This means you can use the surface continuously throughout the year with consistent performance in all weather conditions.
The surfaces generally have a pile length of 65mm and are installed over a separate shock pad to meet World Rugby Head Impact Criteria requirements and Rugby Football Union accreditation.
Just some of our accredited pitches include Bath Rugby Club, Coombeshead Academy, Hertfordshire Sports Village, University of Lancaster, University of St Mark & St John, University of Stirling, University of Worcester and many more.
McArdle Sport Tec is proud to have been selected to install temporary run off areas with shockpads at a number of Rugby World Cup venues in time for the start of the Rugby World Cup 2015.
