3G Pitch Specification

We can create a bespoke 3G pitch specification to suit your facility, with the ideal playing qualities. This type of synthetic grass flooring is best for playing football and rugby http://www.allweatherpitch.co.uk/dimensions/rugby-union/ due to the natural characteristics. We use a specialist infill of sand and rubber to provide a comfortable and durable surface which can be used all year round. These facilities are extremely popular for schools and local leisure centres who are wanting to replace flooded natural grass pitches.

We would be happy to provide some more information about costs and designs for these third generation turf surfaces. Please complete the contact form on this page so we can get back to you and discuss what you need.

What is a 3G Pitch?

A 3G pitch is a synthetic turf sports surface which is designed to replicate the qualities of natural grass. The specification is made up of an artificial carpet with sand and rubber infill installed within the fibres to create the desired playing qualities. We are able to install this type of surfacing to suit many different design options and area sizes.

If you need to upgrade your sports surfacing we provide the synthetic third generation playing surface. This 3G pitch specification meets many UK certifications of soccer and rugby regulating organisation such as FIFA, FA, IRB, RFU as well as RFL. The synthetic surfacing can vary in fibre size from 32 millimetres, which is predominantly used for hockey surfaces http://www.allweatherpitch.co.uk/dimensions/hockey/ to 60 millimetres which can be used for rugby. If you desire to generally use the area for soccer then a forty millimetre grass length is ideal, this is often typically mounted onto a shock pad to help reduce impact injury from the flooring.

Building a 3G Sports Surface

The process of building a 3G sports surface can vary for each project, but we tend to follow a similar strategy. Once the existing surface has been excavated we fit a permeable sub base under the facility. We create two various kinds of sub base which can be put in place for a third generation synthetic carpet; these are engineered and dynamic bases. An engineered sub base is comprised of compacted natural stone and then tarmacadam on top, creating a firm base for a shockpad to be installed. A shockpad can be included with the artificial carpet installation to create a more comfortable playing surface, this must be added if the facility will be used for rugby.

The 3rd generation surface turf is installed with rubberised pellets and silica fine sand. This provides the surfacing excellent performance properties for the desired sports. The rubber granules used help to comfort the joints of the participants, which in turn helps to reduce the chance of personal injuries when the surfacing is being put to use. This infill can be created to keep up with the structure of the pile height, this will make the facility comfy under foot and definitely will increase the performance experience for the users.

Artificial Turf Construction Costs

A number of components may change the cost to install the facility; some components include the dimensions of the surface, location, etc. 3rd generation surfacing is an all-weather product so that it is ideal for erratic climates like the United Kingdom. We will create a unique 3G pitch specification for your project to ensure it meets your requirements completely. This facility works extremely well all year long in just about any climate, this could avoid any competing games from becoming cancelled. Additionally, educational institutions and colleges typically use third generation turf for Physical Education and sporting activities. Because of the porosity of the facility, the pitch will not end up being flooded due to bad weather, enabling it to still be used by the school or club.

3G Sports Field Design

As well as installing the synthetic carpet, we can also set up line markings for football http://www.allweatherpitch.co.uk/dimensions/football/ and rugby so that the area can be used for matches and training. The overall design and specification is completely up to you and we will build a facility which is suitable for your budget and your existing outdoor space.


Many establishments acquire added profits from making it possible for their facilities to be used after working hours. It's possible to involve extra features for your facility like floodlighting, making the area more beneficial as the flooring can then be used in the dark. We make an effort to ensure that our clients always get the best value; this is possible since every one of our distributors produce product designs that satisfy with a range of regulating body certifications.
