Revisiting Manchester Primary’s New School Sports Surfacing

18th September 2017

School sports are taking off now more than ever but we have noticed that many schools simply don’t have the inspiration that they need to practise this every day as much as possible. We think that all lessons should have the opportunity to be taken outside and that schools should offer a wide variety of sports in every season… yes, we mean winter too! That’s where we come in. At Synthetic Turf Management we provide a range of school sports surfacing that is all-weather proof. How do we do this? By using our bespoke, British manufactured multi-purpose product. Artificial turf.

Pike Fold Community Primary School is located in Manchester and recently had installed 792 square metres of green artificial grass by ourselves.

The School Sports Surfacing Spec:

  • 5mm rubber pad to be installed as an underlay to absorb impact and act as a softer base
  • The inlay of white, red, blue and yellow markings to cater for football, basketball, running and cross court pitches.
  • A sand dressed product to be used
  • Preparation of the existing tarmac base.
