Artificial Sports Surfaces are designed to meet the rigorous demands of continuous use and so long as they are maintained properly they will meet their requirements easily. HB Sports Surfaces install Sand Filled, Sand Dressed or 3G Sports Surfaces.
Sport pitches which are used intensively over long periods of time can deteriorate rapidly and so extensive and continuous maintenance is usually required in order to keep sport surfaces operational. Overuse can result in bald patches and it can become impossible to sustain a perfectly consistent surface. Unfortunately during the winter period natural grass surfaces can mean a number of matches have to be cancelled due to the playing surface being frozen or water-logged.
Many who have always maintained natural grass sport surfaces are now considering artificial grass in order to reduce maintenance costs and generate more income during the winter time.
We install and maintain the following surfaces...
Sand Filled Artificial Sports Surfaces are designed to meet the rigorous demands of continuous use. They are hard wearing synthetic carpets with a vertical pile and so long as they are maintained properly they meet their requirements easily. The grass fibres are kept upright by the sand infill.
Sand Dressed Carpet Turf is a dense short pile that requires a fine sand infill. This kind of Artificial Sport Turf is much greener in its appearance as they have more artificial grass fibres exposed than Sand Filled Turf.
Third Generation Artificial Grass or 3G Artificial Grass utilises longer fibres and as well as a sand infill it also has a rubber crumb infill. Generally 3G Artificial Sports Surfaces are used for the sport of football. However shorter versions make excellent pitches for hockey practice.
