Many people who are building a hockey pitch will choose to have 2G sand filled synthetic turf. This provides good ball roll properties and is also a much more durable alternative to natural grass. Lots of organisations including sporting centres, schools and colleges make the decision to get 2G surfaces set up. Getting an artificial hockey surface enables you to change a used and dirty area and update your facility.
This type of synthetic turf contains a sand infill which evens out the playing surface and makes it more stable for players. It is also fully porous so it can even be used during wet weather and matches or PE lessons won't have to be called off. You could also use this specification for playing other sports like football and tennis if you wanted to create a multi use facility. See more on these multipurpose surfaces here http://www.astroturfcontractors.co.uk/purpose/muga/ if this is something you are interested in. Get in touch with our team today for further details about costs for installing these facilities.
Ahead of constructing your sand-filled surface ground works as well as base work will have to be performed. The length and width of the area is measured in order to create the foundations. Sub bases can be laid down which means that your surfacing will be smooth, permeable and sturdy once the set up is complete. A shock pad can be fitted by our hockey pitch surface installers to increase the comfort for the individuals. This may help to cut back on potential injuries to the people's joints and muscles. Your complete surfacing is going to be porous - allowing for the area to be used all through the entire year.
For this specification a small layer of sand is added to hold the grass fibres in position and enable balls to move smoothly around the surface. The infill enables more traction on the sports pitch as well as making certain that the turf fibres remain the same structure plus height which will help to improve the performance quality. To make a high quality look after you have put in the second generation sports facility, you might apply sport line markings. There are many different colours you could choose to make your surfacing completely unique. To produce a multi use area, a number of line markings can be applied.
Another product type which can be installed is a sand dressed hockey surfacing specification. This has a similar design but a shorter pile height, and the infill is distributed on top of the surface rather than within. 2G sand-dressed surfaces are actually hard-wearing and long lasting with excellent performing qualities. Having a sand infill is used to help keep the grass standing upright and then strengthen the playing characteristics.
Maintaining your sand-dressed sports facility is crucial so that the sand infill levels are filled up on a regular basis. Routine preservation really helps to enhance the safety and performance qualities of the sports pitch. Frequent sweeping and washing is a must in order to avoid contamination of the sports surface, this is able to help to clear out just about any dirt and debris and also helps prevent water logging. Further details on the maintenance methods can be seen on this page http://www.astroturfcontractors.co.uk/maintenance/ so be sure to check this out. If the pitch becomes contaminated, restoration really should be performed. This process is performed by taking away contaminated sand infill and putting in a clean layer.
