If space is restrictive Sand Filled Artificial Sports Turf is of great use as a variety of sports can be accommodated on a single facility, sports such as Hockey, Tennis and Basketball while it is more suitable as a practice surface for some sports such as football and netball.

Sand filled artificial sports surfaces have typically pile heights around 20 to 24mm, these surfaces require regular brushing. It depends upon the usage the surface gets as to how regular it would require maintenance. Heavy usage of artificial sand filled sports surface could mean it would require brushing weekly. In addition to this, the artificial surface will require chemical treatment and deep cleaning throughout its life. If your sports surface has widespread contamination caused by incorrect maintenance then it may be necessary to completely remove the contaminated sand and replace it.

Sand-filled artificial surfaces are popular among sports clubs, local authorities, universities and schools as they often require an artificial surface that can accommodate a variety of sports such as hockey, tennis, football and other exercise activities. Artificial sports surfaces offer high durability and consistent performance.

For this kind of artificial sports surface to be properly maintained it would require:

Power Brushing

Regular Power Brushing of artificial sports grass helps to bed the sand into the fibres, moving the sand around also reduces moss and debris build-up within the fibres.

Top-Up / Infill

Sand replacement may be required even for sports surfaces that are regularly maintained can become compacted, in some cases debris can cause problems resulting in poor drainage.

Drag Brushing

Regular drag brushing is an essential part of a maintenance programme to ensure the infill is distributed evenly and to reduce surface compaction.

Detritus Removal

On top of Regular Brushing we strongly recommend an annual Deep Clean. Over the year moss, dirt and debris build up and affect the colour and the performance.

Algae and Moss Removal

Moss, Algae and weed growth is also prevented by the appliance of chemicals. These Chemicals require time to penetrate the surface in order to help detritus removal.

Line Marking

Maintenance of line markings is crucial to sports surface presentation. Clear line markings make an artificial surface more pleasurable to play on.

Sports Surfaces we install and maintain

Sand Filled Sports Surface

Sand Filled Sports 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 Sports Surfaces

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.

3G Sports Surfaces

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.
