Multisport synthetic pitch resurfacing in London

22 May 2014

Here at soft surface we were approached by a school that had an existing macadam sport surface, however they were not happy with the surface as it could not easily accommodate the sports they wished to play such as Football and tennis.

This area was to also be there main playground, the meant it required a highly durable sports surface that would not become worn down quickly due to excessive use. We decided with the client that the best carpet to use is the MultiSport synthetic turf carpet that is supplied by Playrite. This particular carpet is extremely durable and long lasting, making it perfect for a school that will have a high usage rate, also the surface is an all-weather pitch, meaning it can used during the winter months.

Due to the existing surface already being macadam, we had the perfect sub base to work with, so we installed a preformed shock pad to ensure that the carpet on top would not slip out of place, and also this increase the maximum product life. The shock pad also has extremely good shock absorbing properties, allowing for the children to use it and be safe whilst playing.

We then had to place the multisport synthetic turf surface on top of the preformed shock pad to create the final surface, this mean sticking the carpets together and creating the spaces for the line marking to ultimately produce a high quality product that remained within the budget set by the school – once the sports pitch had been installed we then spread sand across the entire surface to give it grip for the children and athletes using it.

The overall product was a state of the art sand dressed football pitch that could be used all year round due to its porous properties.
