3G Pitch Resurfacing
3G Pitch Resurfacing are an all-weather alternative to natural grass for football and other sports, with many schools, clubs and leisure centres have already invested in their own astroturf surface. However, just like any other piece of equipment, 3G astroturf pitches will eventually come to the end of their natural lifespan and are in need of resurfacing.
Having a resurfaced pitch will allow your school, club or leisure centre to utilise the all-weather facility for more football training and matches during evenings and at weekends. This extra use can bring in a significant revenue stream, helping to provide a faster payback period and return on investment for the venue.
Success Stories: Transforming Sports Facilities with 3G Pitch Resurfacing
3G artificial turf was introduced in the mid 1990s and is now the most popular type of synthetic sports surface for football and rugby. Known as third-generation technology, it uses silica sand and rubber crumb infill to give the astroturf the appearance of a natural grass surface. The sand and rubber infill also help to cushion the ball, giving it a more realistic bounce than a hard surface.
In order to maintain the performance of a 3G astroturf surface, it needs regular specialist maintenance and power sweeping. This helps to prevent ‘infill migration’ where the rubber infill spreads out towards the edges of the pitch leaving less infill in the middle and will help to reduce the amount of wear and tear on the fibres and carpet.
