Specialist 3G Astroturf Pitch Maintenance

So called 3G astroturf, or third generation artificial turf sports pitches are the latest development in sports playing surface technology.

Synthetic 3G Turf pitches are used for all types of sports where traditional grass might have been used in the past – such as for football, rugby, hockey, bowls, athletics, cricket, tennis, netball and even basketball. 

The right choice of synthetic sports turf has many benefits over traditional grass while being similarly kind to the human body, and it can also be used for multi use games areas (MUGAs). Their benefits include similar playing characteristics to natural grass, greater durability, extended play, all-year-round use, a faster drying time and the fact that it is less costly to maintain.

The 3g artificial grass pitches consist of a layer of synthetic grass ‘blades’ or pile which is supported by a layer of sand. This may be topped with a rubber or sand infill which is spread over the turf and raked down in between the fibres, to help support the blades to provide some ‘give’.

The pitch can be laid onto a foundation with drainage features if needed, a stone layer, a porous asphalt layer, and a resilient pad. These products can be used anywhere that you need high-quality, resilient sports pitches and tennis courts such as schools and universities, local council facilities, leisure centres and in private sports facilities.

You may already have a 3g pitch installed where its needs keeping it in optimal condition to ensure that people want to keep on using it. Signs that you have neglected proper maintenance include a build-up of debris and contaminated material into the structure of the fabric, which causes problems with drainage and safety. 

Another sign that you have been neglecting your 3g synthetic grass is the growth of moss and vegetation on the surface of the pitch and when the infill is compacted or unevenly spread, which causes problems with play and safety.

While there are basic care tips for 3g artificial sports turf, it is unlikely that you’ll want to purchase the specialist equipment you might need for bigger jobs that will need to be done on a regular basis. 

As specialist in artificial turf maintenance we can help you fix and repair the turf surface and repaint lines, along with everything else you need to ensure that your pitch remains in optimal condition all year round.
