Groundworks are the first thing that should be done while fitting a long-jump runway and pit, this is so that your existing ground is correctly prepared. The preparation works are necessary and if not done in the correct way, it may cause complications or damage to the facility. The current ground should be excavated to the required level to ensure a strong sub-base. A sand pit will also be installed at the end of a run up track to create a safe landing area, this can be designed to suit a number of area sizes.
A geotextile membrane will usually be put down to prevent weeds from growing up through the final surfacing and causing contamination. A natural stone sub base will then be installed to produce a solid and porous base layer. For the final part of the groundworks, a macadam base could be added, this will make the surface level, durable and porous.
There are two different surfacing specifications which we offer for nearby athletics tracks. These are the Multisport synthetic sand filled carpet, and the polymeric EPDM rubber surfacing. Both of these specifications are porous so they won’t hold water, and they each have different characteristics to suit individual performance standards so they could be closest to your requirements.
This artificial needlepunch material makes a fantastic recreational jumping surfacing for schools http://www.design-supply-install.co.uk/playground/school/ or community clubs. It contains a sand infill to add extra durability, and comes in a number of colours including red, blue, green and yellow. During the long-jump pit installation, the Multisport carpet would be rolled out onto the sub-base and then fixed using a specialist glue. The materials are woven to create an effective surface. As it's a soft flooring type, it’s a perfect choice for younger people to use during PE lessons or practising their skills. It can also be laid directly onto a stone sub base without the need for a layer of macadam.
Polymeric rubber surfacing will be the favoured selection for local professional athletics facilities. This EPDM specification leaves a more solid finish which is better for competitive events and more experienced athletes. When installing this type of track, rubber crumb particles are mixed with binder and then laid onto the macadam base layer and the surrounding areas, creating a seamless and long lasting finish.

If you want the long-jump run-up to stay appearing its very best, regular servicing should really be done. To be proactive with the upkeep, a regular cleaning and maintenance plan should be put together. This can help to stop impairments and make sure the surface is kept safe and reliable for regular use. Brushing and then getting rid of any contamination must be carried out frequently, along with a mild jet wash. Doing this kind of preservation can remove any rubbish and dirt blocking the water flow system. We offer maintenance http://www.design-supply-install.co.uk/muga-pitch/maintenance/ across the UK to a number of runways, courts and pitches.
Any stains may be dealt with by using warm water and house-hold cleaning products. You should apply a chemical treatment to eliminate any unwanted weeds or even moss which show up on the athletics area. Do not make use of any sort of oil based solutions because these can damage the surface area of your run-way. In cold conditions a rubber edged shovel and brush should remove any kind of ice or compacted snow.
