3G Sports Surfaces

Third Generation Artificial Grass or 3G Artificial Grass not only has sand infill it also has a rubber crumb infill.

Fibres from 35mm to 65mm are supported by the rubber and sand infill levels; it is possible to adjust this infill level in order to produce optimum playing characteristics for particular games.

Generally they are used for football, but the shorter versions make excellent pitches for hockey practice and if a shock absorbent pad is installed underneath, it is perfect for rugby.

These artificial 3G surfaces require regular brushing, particularly prior to hockey being played on them as ball roll is crucial to the game. The frequency of required brushing is dependent upon the usage the pitch gets. The thin layer of sand at the base of the pile helps to support the yarn and weigh down the carpet whilst the rubber crumb provides the play characteristics similar to natural grass. As the rubber granules are a loose infill, they may migrate off the surface and on to surrounding areas. The granule levels subsequently may require topping up from time to time.

For this kind of 3G Artificial Sport Surface to be properly maintained it would require:

Most football clubs are looking for an even field with no standing water or bare patches a field that can be played on all year round, Artificial 3g Sports Surfaces provide the answer as they can provide the best play characteristics. Bad weather conditions do not stop play when the sports surface is a well installed artificial pitch.

The polyethylene yarn is more durable than the standard polypropylene. Backing is Polypropylene & Polyester Woven + Fleece, thermally bonded for greater carpet stability and long term wear.

Many football clubs find that artificial turf is an investment that also gives an effective return.

HB Artificial Sports Surfaces supply and install artificial grass ideal for football and rugby, all are specifically designed for players of all abilities.

Sports Surfces we install and maintain

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.
