If space is restrictive Sand Filled Artificial Sport Turf (also known as Astro 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 an 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 a consistent performance.

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.
