A common specification for a Type 2 MUGA is that the surface is to be painted in an Acrylic Colour Anti Slip Paint. A Type 2 MUGA, which is an Open Textured Porous Macadam surface performs to BS7044-4 standard and is normally used for sports such as 5 a side Football, Netball, Basketball, Tennis and Athletics and these surfaces often require an anti slip sports coating which can help achieve a slip resistance of 60TRRL.
The Acrylic Anti Slip Colour Coating, which is often named in Q26 specifications, is mixed in standard colours such as Red, Green, Yellow and Blue and will be CHAS, API & CONSTRUCTION LINE accredited. Once the Acrylic Anti Slip Porous Macadam paint has been applied will be tested to BS4790 and this will test against surface imperfections in the paint as the coating will have a silica content which will provide the slip resistance of the coating. These anti slip coatings will also be used to provide the MUGA with the game line markings. These lines will be 50mm wide unless otherwise specified and can be applied using airless sprayer or rollers.
