As we are expert contractors, we can install a range of astro turf surfaces to give your school or club a fantastic new sports facility that's perfect for loads of activities.
The installation process for an artificial grass pitch includes preparing groundworks, laying a sub base, putting down a shockpad and installing the turf carpet itself.
We have completed astro turf construction and have previously served a wide range of institutions and organisations, from private companies to schools, universities and local leisure centres. We allow our clients the complete freedom to choose a surfacing option that fits their requirements exactly, but we are also on hand to help guide your decision and ensure that you have the right surface for your needs.
Please take a moment to complete our contact form if you'd like to ask us any questions or receive a quote for installing this type of facility. We would be happy to provide all the information you need and discuss the costs for a range of different products.
The first thing to think about is the size of your pitch. When we know what sort of space you are trying to cover we can put together a price not only for the astro turf surface itself, but for the foundations too. We start by laying down a geotextile membrane which stops contamination, such as weeds and roots, growing up through your sub base. This helps maintain the long lasting porosity of your surface and ensure that your sports facility remains weatherproof all year round.
The next stage in the construction process is to add angular stones which further strengthen the waterproof properties of your turf. Angular stones make sure there are gaps for water to drain through. This prevents the sports pitch from becoming waterlogged and unsuitable for use. If you want to learn about 2G surfaces, have a look at this page http://www.astroturfcontractors.co.uk/surfacing/2g/. Many natural grass surfaces suffer this problem and it can mean having to cancel matches or training sessions. Due to the porous qualities of artificial turf, this doesn't happen and you can enjoy the facility all through the year.
After the sub base, a shock pad is laid down. This will help make playing sports on this surface as comfortable as possible. Ideal for fast paced activities like rugby and football, it provides an added safety feature too. The shock pad also removes the chances of turf slipping over time as it helps to keep it in place.
Finally the installation of astro turf itself takes place as part of the construction process. We have a number of different turf carpets to choose from, all of which are porous and weatherproof all year round. Individual carpets are laid out before being joined together to provide one seamless pitch. The final stage is to lay down an infill – if required. This makes sure that the pile of surfacing keeps its structure, it also gives added grip for sports players. 2G sports surfaces have a sand infill installed whereas 3G pitches will have a combination of sand and rubber which helps to enhance playing qualities and make sure flooring comfortable to run on http://www.astroturfcontractors.co.uk/surfacing/3g/ find out more about them surfaces by clicking on that link.
The cost of all-weather turf construction work can massively vary between projects. The biggest factor is the size of the space, but other specifications may include the need for fencing and floodlighting. Let us help you make the most out of sports surfacing budget. We can create a design and offer a quote which is affordable for you and your organisation.
