Fibre Bonded Needlepunch Sport Surfacing

Synthetic fibre bonded needlepunch surfacing is a durable and long-lasting sports pitch material which provides excellent performance qualities for a range of sports including football, hockey and athletics. It is commonly installed to replace worn out natural grass pitches which have become unsafe for use.

We are able to fit these surfaces in a variety of designs and sizes to suit different activities. Common uses for this particular product include:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Netball
  • Hockey
  • PE games
  • Outdoor activities at school

The designs are extremely versatile and we can incorporate different colours and shapes to create a unique facility.

Installing Fibre Bonded Needlepunch

The installation process for a fibre bonded needlepunch sports facility takes place in a number of stages. Once the ground has been prepared, the first stage is installing either a dynamic or engineered sub base, contractors usually prefer to install fibre bonded needlepunch onto an engineered sub base is the creates the most even surface.

If the needlepunch synthetic turf is going to be used for an athletics track surface, the artificial fibre bonded carpet can be applied straight onto the sub-base, however if the surface is for a multi-use games area surface, a shockpad may need to be installed.

A preformed shockpad is typically included with the installation of fibre bonded needlepunch MUGA surfacing. It will help improve the safety of the surface by absorbing impact from trips and falls.

After the sub-base and shockpad have been installed, the next stage is to apply the fibre bonded needlepunch carpet. This is available in a range of bright colours and rainbow designs. Therefore making it a popular choice for primary schools. Inlaid line markings can also be cut into the needlepunch carpet in contrasting colours to differentiate between the different sports which the MUGA would be used for.

Once the synthetic turf carpet is installed, a layer of sand infill is distributed at the base of the synthetic grass fibres. This helps to maintain the pile height and keep an even playing surface. The fibre bonded needlepunch turf material has the highest fibre to sand ratio of all the sand filled synthetic pitch surfaces on the market. It also commonly known as outdoor activity surfacing as it’s popular for school games and activities.

Sports Facility Accessories

You can choose to have a number of different accessories included with the full construction project of your fibre bonded needlepunch sports facility. Examples include fencing in a range of specifications and heights from 3m-5m, as well as floodlighting. These enable your facility to be rented out in the evenings to generate extra revenue for your organisation.

Maintenance equipment can also be provided along with the full construction as it’s important to look after your synthetic sports surface. This should ensure it remains safe for use and has good playing characteristics for your primary sports.

    Is this suitable for being used as a tennis court?

    • The needlepunch surfacing can be used for tennis and multi sports but if the facility is only being used for tennis then a macadam or polymeric court would be recommended.
