Synthetic Long Jump Athletics Track Construction In Peterborough
Synthetic Long Jump Run Up Construction In Peterborough was carried to a school on their grass playing field. The specifications they desired were for the synthetic long jump athletics track surface to be in two different colours. This appears as a red and blue stripe design.
The first thing that we had to do was to excavate the site to the dimensions that were in the specification for the long jump running track. We had to do this so that we could install a stone sub-base as a foundation. This gives the artificial long jump runway a smooth and even surface.
The sand pit area was excavated along with the long jump athletics track. After installing the initial sub base to the athletic track we could then add the sand to the landing pit.
Installation of Long Jump Athletics Track
The installation of a stone sub-base and Multisport™ synthetic athletics surface can help reduce long-term costs by ultimately increasing the lifespan of the product whilst eliminating the need for a macadam sub base. Due to the long lasting life of the product, this means that the school will not need to regularly replace, resurface or refurbish their synthetic long jump athletic track.
This will help the school keep within their budget. The long jump athletics track will also act as an investment over time. The synthetic Multisport™ long jump athletics track can be installed on top of the sub base now that the ground is flat and level. As the client is a school, they required an aesthetically pleasing look as to help engage with the children. The vibrant design also helps to make sports and fitness seem more fun and appealing.
The surfacing that was chosen for the synthetic long jump was an alternative to the traditional athletic tracks. This would usually be a polymeric rubber specification. The installation process of the synthetic long jump athletics track took approx 1-2 weeks on site.
Now the school is happy to have an all-weather athletics facility for the children to practice on. It is suitable for use all year round in all weather conditions.
