Needlepunch Playground Construction in Kilmarnock

Here at Soft Surfaces, we are expert Needlepunch Playground installers in Kilmarnock. Needlepunch is a durable and long-lasting sports pitch material that is usually installed to ensure the safety of children and sports players when practising/playing on the surface

As specialist sports and play surfacing contractors, we are often approached by schools and public sports facilities to carry out needlepunch playground construction projects. A primary school in Kilmarnock recently asked us to replace their existing playing surface with a brand new synthetic needlepunch facility which could be used for a number of different activities.

Post installation our team can offer Needlepunch playground repair services for any existing Needlepunch playground surfacing within Kilmarnock so if you currently have a Needlepunch Playground surface that needs either resurfacing or rejuvenation, be sure to contact us.

Needlepunch Playground Construction In Kilmarnock

The synthetic turf surfacing used in a needlepunch playground construction is made up of a fibre-bonded artificial carpet which has a curly yarn to improve the stability and playing characteristics. Needlepunch synthetic turf can be installed in different coloured designs and is ideal for multi-use game areas and even athletics tracks.

The soft, impact-absorbing turf is ideal for use in primary schools where younger children are using the facility as it reduces the risk of injury from trips and falls. We used the best specification of needlepunch synthetic turf to create excellent playing qualities and a durable surface that will last a long time.

We began the needlepunch playground construction by excavating the existing area to the required depth and then installing a specialist sports sub-base. This dynamic sub-base was made up of porous angular stones which fit together to create a strong foundation but still allow water to drain through the gaps.

After the sub-base layer was compacted and stabilised, the needlepunch surfacing itself was laid out on top. We rolled the carpet out in separate pieces and joined each piece together at the seams and the edges with a specialised sports pitch glue to hold it in place. The school chose to have their playing surface installed in green with red around the perimeter.

Once the surfacing had been installed for the needlepunch playground construction, a layer of silica sand was applied within the woven fibres of the carpet pile. This sand infill helps to improve the performance qualities of the surfacing and gives a more stable playing surface for a variety of activities.

The final product was a multi-purpose needlepunch playground which can now be used by the school for football, hockey, tennis and general multi-sports and play activities. The school’s staff and students are very pleased with their new synthetic sports facility and are looking forward to using it during PE lessons, break times and in extracurricular clubs.
