Type 2 MUGA is determined by the finished playing surface. This type of MUGA is made from an Open Textured Porous Macadam finish which is made from a sub base and 2 Macadam layers. The finished playing performance is measured from BS7044-4. This type of Multi Use Games Area has Netball, Athletics, Basketball, Tennis and Football played on the surface and the sub base is constructed with 200mm thickness of MOT Type 1 Stone. It then has a 50mm Open Textured 20mm Aggregate binder course installed over the top, this is known as the Macadam Binder Course. Afterwards, it has a 25mm Open Textured 6mm Aggregate wearing course installed. This is known as the Wearing course. This is a standard Sport England specification for a Type 2 MUGA and is tested to BS7044-4.
The MUGA is then coated with a Polyurethane Anti Slip Coating. This coating contains a silica and additional aluminium oxide as this can achieve an anti slip rating of 75TRRL for Netball. The anti slip coating comes in 5 standard colours which are White, Red, Green, Yellow and Blue and once these have been applied, it will achieve a Health & Safety accreditation from CHAS, CONSTRUCTION LINE and API. MUGAs are designed to have game line markings applied and these are done by using a Fully Textured Water Based Polyurethane Line Mark Paint. The primary sport is normally done in White and with specified 50mm wide lines. These details are normally specified in the Q22 of a project.
