Multi Use Games Area Rejuvenation Maintenance
Multi Use Games Areas are sports facilities that are often in places like schools, playgrounds and sports clubs and these surfaces often need vital rejuvenation and renovation. This renovation work can come in many forms as there are a number of different surfaces available and there are also a number of different maintenance techniques that can be used. Most of the sports pitches on MUGAs can suffer from algal squidge, moss, mud and general dirt and grime and this can cause the surface to have poor drainage which can lead to surface flooding.
A common type of sports surface for a ball court / kickabout court is the 3G football pitch all weather synthetic Astroturf flooring. This type of surfacing is often known as an STP or ATP, depending on the area size / dimension of the MUGA. This type of surface often is sand dressed which means that the sand can fill up to 70% of the pile height of the carpet, although sand filled is also available. When the sand gets contaminated, it can need to be maintained and revitalised through the extraction / replacement of the sand meaning that the sand can then be replaced meaning better drainage and less risk of flooding. When new sand has been installed onto the MUGA surface, the astro – turf game lines can also be replaced and renovated.
Sports like Football, Hockey and Tennis are all common sports on MUGA surfaces like Astro turf, Polymeric and Asphalt Macadam. The EPDM Polymeric surfacing is made from recycled rubber chippings that is mixed with a binder and installed as a sports surface. The Asphalt Tar macadam surface is a very hard wearing surface that is very common as a long term, low maintenance option. Other maintenance options on these surfaces include new Anti slip coatings, patch & perimeter repairs and surface cleaning.
