Type 3 polymeric surfacing MUGA facilities are rubber surface specifications which are ideal for a variety of sports with the main sport as netball. Other activities played on the multi use games area will be football, tennis, basketball, athletics and 5-a-side football.
Polymeric Surfacing Specification
The Type 3 polymeric material is commonly installed in schools and is designed to have a high slip resistance rating for netball. The polymeric system is made up of EPDM rubber crumb granules which are mixed together with a binder and then laid onto a macadam base. An anti slip paint coating is then applied to give the stable playing characteristics and the rubber EPDM surface gives the sport surface a cushioned underfoot feel. Line markings can also be applied to the flooring contrasting coloured non slip paint to distinguish between the different sports which the facility will be used for.
Once the polymeric surfacing has been installed, there is the option to have a range of extra accessories and equipment included with the full construction project. These could be fencing in a variety of heights from 3m-5m, sports floodlighting, and maintenance equipment to help you keep your surface sport court in top condition. Having these extra accessories can help you make the most out of your new sport facility by giving you the opportunity to rent it out to other clubs and teams for training sessions and competitive matches in the evening.
