Sand filled synthetic turf pitches are very popular in the UK due to the multi functional/multi sport use in all weather conditions. Sand filled pitches can also be used on MUGA construction, due to the different multi sports played on the same surface, in a contained and controlled environment.
Sand Filled Synthetic Turf Specification
Sand filled synthetic turf 2G all weather pitch surfacing can be used for many different sports like football, hockey, tennis and rugby and can be constructed to many different specifications, designs and sizes such as 60m x 30m. The sand filled synthetic turf pitch surfacing is made up of an artificial grass carpet which has a layer of sand infill installed at the base of the turf fibres. This sand infill layers helps to keep the grass fibres upright and maintain good performance characteristics. These types of surfaces can be used at organisations such as sports clubs, playgrounds, parks and schools and can be built to suit many different budgets and specifications. There are also other 2G synthetic grass surfaces which can be used for astroturf pitches. Sand dressed is also a very common choice, sand dressed means that the fibres of the grass are only partly filled whereas sand filled means that the fibre of the artificial grass is filled to the tip of the grass.
Rejuvenation and renovation can also play parts in the design and construction of these surfaces. The rejuvenation process involves the extraction of contaminated sand infill from the 2G sand filled synthetic turf or sand filled artificial grass, this dirty sand is then replaced with a new layer of clean sand. It’s important to carry out rejuvenation if the sand infill becomes dirty and contaminated as it can have a negative effect on the performance and safety qualities of the sand filled synthetic turf facility if left untreated. The maintenance costs can be significant if the surfacing is left as things like sand infill contamination, sand infill compaction and joint repairs may all need to be considered.
Sand Filled Pitch Costs
The costs of the full build or construction of these sand filled synthetic turf sports facilities can vary due to the size, specification, location and type of surfacing can have effects on the total cost.
