Synthetic Turf Installation

In the short video below our in house team of installers convert this old compacted stone long jump track, to a bright coloured activity area where the pupils can practice athletic sports to further careers to become professional sports people or Olympians.

This video highlights the process that we use to revitalise this area adding a sufficient sub-base to clear standing water and provide drainage to the surface. After this is completed the then lay the different colours of Synthetic turf to provide the lanes for the wearing course.

Please see video transcript below:

00:05 Hi, guys. It’s Dan from Soft Surfaces here. I’m still going to be showing you a Multi-Sport long jump installation for Vandyke Upper School in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.

00:12 So firstly, we examined the old surface, made sure it’s suitable for the surface that we’re going to lay and then also remove the area.

00:17 So as you can see, we’re removing it there for the long jump to be installed. Next, the curb edging is installed, so these are the edging that goes around the long jump, as you can see. So basically we fit them to obviously know where we’re going to build up to for the stone base.

00:25 As you can see, this is the stone base being installed now. So the stone sub-base is basically a necessary part for the Multi Sport to be installed onto, there we are laying it.
And finally, the Multi Sport synthetic turf is then installed.

00:39 So as you can see here, this is us installing the turf, adding to the color of the facility and it really makes it look great when it’s finished.

00:45 So here is the finished product now, you’re going to see some photos of that.

00:49 This is a really great facility, obviously we have four lanes on this, meaning that multiple kids can use it at the same time. It’s great for their educational and recreational use, whilst obviously giving them the ability to have a bit of fun on the playground and obviously learn about the sport long jump. And yeah, just a great surface all-round, really, for a school.

01:02 So we hope you enjoyed this video, and we’ll see you guys later.

Benefits of a Synthetic Turf in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire

Having a synthetic turf surface installed in the Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire area has many benefits, these include the following:

Proper Drainage

Synthetic Turf is designed to have small holes to seamlessly drain water from the surface, whether this is caused by rain, rinsing or paddling pool. This makes the surface the more safety-conscious option as you won’t find yourself getting injured.

Reduced Maintenance Costs

Synthetic Turf required little to no maintenance, aside from the occasional sweep and rinse to keep leaves and debris at bay. Not only is this time-consuming, but it’s incredibly expensive as opposed to the cheap and simple and easy maintenance.

Withstands Harsh Weather Conditions

When it comes to real grass, too much sun can dry the grass out, whereas too much rain can drown the grass out. Since natural grass is a living thing, it is very sensitive to the environment and requires a rigorous maintenance schedule. However this doesn’t apply to synthetic grass as it is crafted from manmade substances that aren’t really affected by environmental factors.
