RFU, RFL, IRB Sports Artificial Pitch Long Pile Synthetic Grass is installed onto full sized rugby fields which is a 3rd generation synthetic turf carpet that is filled with sand washed and dried silica sand and then recycled rubber granules which gives the playing performance necessary for rugby testing.
The testing of the sports pitches includes the likes of the ball bounce, vertical deformity and force reduction which is crucial to try and make sure the players enjoy playing on this type of all weather pitch surface. The astroturf is designed to play similar to natural grass but obviously has the advantages of not having to cancel or postpone any fixtures.
The rugby football union, rugby football league and international rugby board generally have the same parameters for the playing characteristics and this generally needs to be a long piled artificial grass carpet because this allows the correct depth to cushion the fall of the players. The standard depths are usually 40mm thick, 50mm depth and a 60mm pile height system for the longer piled astroturf.
