The artificial grass technology of a 3G or Third Generation, and now 4G, pitch has improved significantly over recent years from the early ‘Astroturf’ days and provides a great alternative to natural grass yet meets all the FA, FIFA, Sport England accreditations as well as other sport governing bodies in the UK.
As an all-weather alternative to natural grass, 3G and 4G pitch surfaces are more durable and require considerably less maintenance which is why they are becoming increasingly popular. They can be used for competitive matches and tournaments where inclement weather would otherwise make playing on waterlogged natural grass facilities, prohibitive.
Artificial pitches use an engineered or dynamic porous sub-base, which provides a solid foundation for the 3G sport surfacing. This base and surface can be tailored for the primary sport or activity that the pitch will be used for, for example: football, rugby, hockey or simply recreational purposes. The pile is normally supported by additional base layers of sand and an infill of rubber crumb. This is a great all weather surface that is also easy to maintain.
if you are having a new pitch laid, Stadium Solutions can install your new stands after it is fitted as we don't have to go over your pitches due to our piecemeal delivery and full on-site build, ensuring no damage will be caused to the new surface.
Stadium Solutions work in conjunction with Breen Associates, who are specialist sports facilities advisors, for enquiries related to artificial pitches. For more information please speak to us, see here or contact Bob Breen on 07557 906898.
