FOOTBALL

Our football surfaces, similar to rugby, 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.

All 3G surfaces are specifically designed to offer similar playing characteristics to playing on a natural grass surface, mimicking the ball bounce and ball roll. Our 3G football pitches are extremely durable which means you can use the surface continuously throughout the year with consistent performance in most weather conditions.

As a responsible installer of synthetic sports surfaces we recommend a macadam base for increased durability and to improve playing characteristics. The installation of a rubber shock pad also increases player comfort and reduces maintenance costs.

To gain a FIFA QUALITY Programme for Football Turf certification (FIFA QUALITY or FIFA QUALITY PRO), all 3G pitches must attain a level of safety, performance and quality. We work with you to determine the level of certification that you require.
