3G astro turf pitches can be used for sports like Rugby and Hockey but in the UK are primarily used for Football. Synthetic all weather MUGA soccer pitches are common in places like schools, council facilities and sports clubs as they are designed and specified to look and feel like a natural pitch when they are played on.
The actual carpet of the surfacing is normally a minimum of 40mm thick and can be game line marked to suit the required sport or all three if required. If rugby is to be played on the 3G all weather soccer pitch the surfacing would be installed at a 50 or 60mm pile height to suit the playing characteristics of both rugby union and rugby league. Soft Surfaces Ltd has lots of experience in constructing these ball courts and this sector is a speciality of ours. To generate extra income from this surfacing, sports floodlighting and sports fencing is often installed, along with recess goals and gating options. There is also no set specification / design for this surface and this means it can be constructed in most areas and dimensions.
Soft Surfaces Ltd would be happy to assist you with your rubber infilled 3G soccer pitch construction when choosing either monofilament or fibrillated third generation surfaces. From designs, costing, prices, construction and maintenance, please give us a call and we will be happy to help. Also, visit our website on http://www.sportsandsafetysurfaces.co.uk/.
