Activity Surfacing

Many schools within the UK have multi active games spaces installed so that kids can take part in a range of games in one place; we offer activity surfacing services for these facilities. The specially made multipurpose flooring can be installed in a variety of bespoke designs depending on the requirements of the children who will be using the area. Popular NBS specifications for activity flooring include Multisport synthetic needlepunch surfacing and wetpour rubber. Each of these is versatile and are available in bright colours.

Activity Surfacing Designs

A popular service that we carry out for surfaces in schools, nurseries and other areas is the installation of activity flooring graphics. We may install rubber inserts and artificial turf designs to create fun and educational games for children to enjoy at playtime. Studies show that children generally learn more during playtime, which is why it is important to have educational designs for them to enjoy. Our team will be more than happy to discuss the various graphics we have available, so please do not hesitate to speak to us by filling in our contact form provided.

The benefit of having a multi-active games space for kids is they can do different activities all in one area. This is for both during lessons and in extracurricular clubs. There are diverse line-markings and colours for ball sports, square grids, circles and many other design options. One space can be utilised in numerous ways so that each child can take part in an activity they enjoy.

Our multi-activity surfacing services also include the supply of additional play area equipment such as basketball hoops, football nets and games panels to create a fun and interactive outdoor space for kids of all ages. We have helped many schools with designing and constructing unique and engaging multi-activity surfacing which support kids in both physical and cognitive development.

How is Activity Flooring Maintained?

As well as installing multisport flooring, we also provide maintenance services to keep the flooring in the best possible condition. By carrying out regular maintenance upon the surface we can make certain the flooring is safe for use. If you do not carry out regular inspections, you may not notice rips and tears on the surfacing. This can then become dangerous for the children using the multiactivity flooring, as they could trip and hurt themselves.

When carrying out the activity flooring maintenance services, you may find that some repairs are needed. Our team can offer minor repairs along with full resurfaces if necessary. By carrying out routine maintenance, you’ll be able to cut back on the costs of the repairs. However, if you have had the facility for a long period of time, it may require a full resurface.

How to Install Activity Flooring

We install multisport synthetic surfacing for schools and nurseries in a number of bright, vibrant colours. The activity flooring construction is completed by specialists with years of experience within the industry. A macadam sub base should be in place prior to the construction of this surfacing to create a flat, solid sub base. The coloured carpet is then rolled out and secured at the joints and edges. This will prevent the surface from moving around.

Our team are able to install the surface relating to your individual requirements. You can create a bespoke design for us to follow which will be completely original for your establishment. We may also alter designs and specifications to meet your spending budget if necessary.

Outdoor Activity Facilities

We are experts in a range of sports and play surfaces and can also offer help with maintenance and repairs to outdoor activity facilities along with the full design and construction. It’s important to carry out routine checks of the area and inspect for any damage. This is because it could potentially cause a trip hazard or an uneven surface. You should complete repairs as soon as possible to Multisport synthetic or wetpour surfaces. This could include repairing rips to the seams or filling in extra rubber to fix wetpour shrinkage issues on the multi-active games space.

You should always apply proactive maintenance to outdoor activity facilities. This is important to help maintain the best playing qualities throughout the year. It will also reduce the need for any repairs. We can offer help to brush, jet wash and maintain your multisport flooring through a variety of services. It just depends on what type of maintenance the surface requires.

Multisport Synthetic Needlepunch Surfacing

Multisport synthetic surfacing is great for a number of activities and can be used for multiactivity spaces and play areas. Needlepunch is great for schools and nurseries since young children will like the bright colours in which the surface comes in. This can also help to improve exercise levels both in lessons and outside of school time.

Below is a video of a project we completed recently at a school in Cumbria. We refurbished the area in PS15 surfacing to create a brand new games space. The kids can use this in PE lessons, break times and extracurricular clubs. The existing tarmac area was used as a sub-base and we laid out the Multisport synthetic turf surfacing in the chosen design. We did this by securing it around the edges and at the seams. Have a look at the video now to see the full construction work from start to finish:
