3G Pitch Resurfacing

If you are looking to resurface an existing football surface then 3G Pitch Resurfacing may be the right option for your school, college or sports club. This specialist artificial turf combines both sand and rubber infill to protect players from injuries whilst providing the best possible ball role for football and other games.

3G pitches have become a popular choice for clubs, schools and colleges because they require less maintenance than an organic surface. This type of all weather synthetic pitch also allows the facility to be rented out for other clubs and community groups to use when the main club isn’t playing so this is a great way to get more income for the sports club.

Compared to an organic all-weather pitch, the main benefit of 3G is that it can handle rain and sunshine without creating huge muddy puddles and doesn’t fade in the heat of summer. Another benefit is that it reduces the risk of injury as the sand and rubber infill cushion any falls or trips.

Choosing the Right 3G Artificial Sports Pitch Resurfacing Contractors

The safety of artificial 3G surfaces has been brought back into the spotlight this week after a father linked his son’s cancer to the rubber pellets used in the surface. The Football Association has responded by confirming that the many studies carried out on artificial 3G surfaces have found no evidence of them posing a health risk to players.

Just like an organic all-weather football pitch, a new 3G football surface will need regular maintenance to keep it in good condition. This will involve brushing the surface with a drag brush at least fortnightly to prevent the rubber infill from migrating to the edges of the pitch. It will also need a top-up of the infill and preventative moss and algae control treatments.
