Synthetic 4G pitches are commonly installed for use with football and rugby facilities because the provide natural playing qualities with much simpler maintenance requirements.
The artificial carpet is made from advanced turf material with sand and rubber infill to provide the most comfortable performance qualities and also to protect players' joints.
Many schools and clubs have artificial grass installed for their sports facilities because they are easier to look after and can be rented out in the evenings to generate more revenue.
When building a 4G all weather MUGA there are a lot of factors that need to be considered in order to create the perfect facility for each client. This surface type is made using the most advanced technology of artificial grass meaning that it provides natural playing qualities with all the benefits of a synthetic pitch. Sports that can be played on a 4th generation all weather multisport area typically include football and rugby as this surface is accredited by the FA, FIFA, IRB and RFU governing bodies. The synthetic grass carpet is made using high quality yarns and is infilled with sand and rubber granules which fit between the turf fibres. This infill provides stability and creates the natural bounce associated with real grass pitches.

The basic method to build a 4G pitch is as follows:
For a more detailed description on how to build a 4G all-weather MUGA pitch, the first stage of construction will include excavating the ground in the existing area to the required depth and installing a dynamic stone sub base. These stones create a durable and long lasting foundation which is also porous to let water drain through quickly. Next, our professional installers will put down a layer of macadam to act as a smooth and strong base before the synthetic carpet is installed. Most clients will choose to have a shockpad installed beneath the 4G turf; this provides extra safety qualities and makes the surface more comfortable for players. For information on construction please visit this page http://www.muga.co.uk/services/construction/ If the pitch is going to be used for rugby, it is compulsory to have the shockpad so as to prevent injuries during training and matches.
We offer a range of design options if you are looking to install a 4G or 5G synthetic grass area at your school, football club, rugby club or leisure centre. As well as being specialist surfacing installers, we can also include a number of different features and extras to help you complete the overall facility so that you can make the most out of it.
For schools and clubs and surrounding areas, which are looking to boost their income, sports floodlights are a great addition to a 4G all-weather MUGA. This is because they allow you to rent the pitch out in non-daylight hours through the year so that other teams and clubs can use it. As artificial grass pitches are a lot more resilient than natural grass, they can be used more frequently without becoming damaged and waterlogged. By renting the MUGA out for extra use you can generate additional revenue to help manage maintenance costs for the surface. However, the cleaning and maintenance requirements are already a lot simpler than those of natural grass pitches. For details on repairs, please visit this page http://www.muga.co.uk/maintenance/repairs/ Specialist rebound fencing is another extra feature that we may install along with the flooring itself. This comes in a variety of designs depending on your budget and what you need, but the fencing is designed to keep the area secure and keep all equipment like balls within the facility.

4G and 5G all-weather pitches require a level of maintenance to keep them in the best possible condition. We would recommend regularly having the synthetic turf drag brushed in order to remove any leaves, dirt or litter within the fibres of the pitch. This should be done as a way to maintain the porosity of the field near me. The great thing about synthetic pitches is that they do not hold water or become muddy in wet weather; if you find that your facility starts to hold water and the surface becomes flooded, it is vital that you have the MUGA rejuvenated as soon as possible. We may also carry out minor repairs if there are rips or tears in the surfacing. Should your pitch become beyond repair, we can carry out resurfacing services to make your MUGA as good as new.
