Synthetic Turf Hockey Surfaces

When playing sports at schools or local sport clubs, it’s important to have a good quality surface which displays the best performance qualities. Artificial grass carpets tend to offer the most appropriate characteristics for games and recreational practise sessions. We offer a number of turf specifications to cover different budgets and standards of use.

Sand Filled Pitches

If you’re looking for a surface with natural qualities for the sport pitch installation, sand filled artificial grass is a great option. This is made of realistic fibres with a layer of sand infill applied within to add stability and strength. The sand filled surfacing can also be used for playing football and tennis if you’d like a multi-use area. A sand dressed option is available with a lighter covering of sand on the top level of the grass; however this is more suitable for facilities and surrounding areas which are only used for hockey.

What is Multisport Carpet?

Multisport synthetic turf carpet is a needlepunch specification which we often use for multipurpose facilities. It is designed with a curly yarn which encapsulates its sand infill, making for a more durable and stable playing surface. Other sports such as football, basketball and tennis can additionally be played on it. This type of flooring can be supplied in bright colours such as green, red and blue, and is also commonly utlised for recreational athletics tracks.

Installing Hockey Facilities Near Me

As specialist installers of hockey pitches, we've completed plenty of full installation projects at schools, colleges, local clubs and professional facilities. The work will typically begin with preparing the groundworks and installing a suitable sub base of compacted porous stone. We find that this provides the strongest and most long lasting foundation for sports pitches.

Next, a layer of tarmac will be installed to create a smooth base surface before the carpet itself is laid down. In some cases, we will also add an impact absorbing shockpad on top of the tarmac to produce better safety qualities and to cushion players’ joints. However this shockpad is not always needed, it depends on how the facility is going to be used. We are also able to provide a rubber mulch surfaces http://www.design-supply-install.co.uk/playground/rubber-mulch/ for facilities that are looking for softer surfaces. These can be a great option for a number of schools and sports clubs that cater to younger children. 

Laying the Sports Turf

Once the groundworks and sub base have been fully installed, the next step is to apply the chosen synthetic turf for the pitch. The grass carpet comes in large strips that are rolled out onto the chosen area and secured in place with glue. Inlaid line markings will also be applied in coloured turf to mark out the playing area, and any lines needed for other sports like football. Finally the sand infill will be applied within the grass fibres and spread through evenly to create seamless playing qualities.
