The synthetic sand filled pitch surface is often used for facilities where the primary sports are football and hockey, they also provide good qualities for tennis.
We have completed a number of projects to install 2G sport surfaces for multi use games areas at leisure centres, schools and other facilities.
Artificial grass surfaces are commonly used for multi use facilities as they are suitable for all weather conditions and can be designed to meet individual requirements.
Our specialist installers complete many projects to build a sand filled MUGA pitch which can be used for football, hockey and as a general multi use area. The 2G synthetic turf is made up of specialist carpet fibres which are designed for use with sports pitches. A silica sand infill is applied throughout the grass fibres which gives the overall surface its stability and helps to keep the turf upright. We are able to complete the whole construction process for a sand-filled pitch at your school, college, university or sports club.
The installation work for 2G sand-filled and sand-dressed surfaces usually starts with excavating the ground and putting in a porous stone sub base. The stones are angular which means the fit together to form a strong foundation, but also allow water to pass through them for effective drainage. A macadam base will then be laid onto the stones to give the rest of the surface a smooth and durable layer. Quite often, a sports shockpad will be installed onto the macadam to give shock absorption and to act as a protective underlay for the artificial carpet. The final stage will be rolling out the 2G carpet, gluing it down and then distributing the sand infill throughout the facility.

A 2G pitch is a type of artificial turf surfacing used for sports facilities and surrounding areas. 2G pitches can either be built as sand-filled or sand-dressed. Sand-filled surfacing has infill within the fibres, whereas sand dressed surfacing has a layer of infill on top of the surface. Sand-filled surfacing is great for a multi use games area, as a number of different sports may be played on the facility. 2G synthetic pitches can be built to meet up with a number of specifications for international governing bodies. Line markings can be installed onto the 2G surfacing in order to make playing sports on the surface more enjoyable.
