Burton Recreation Trust approached us a while ago wanting a solution for their community use tarmac multi-use games area. The tarmac surface was in need of a revamp, a bit of colour and something to encourage more frequent use. It had been previously painted green and had discoloured over time.

After extensive discussions, designs and on-site consultations, it was decided that artificial turf was indeed the product for this MUGA surfacing. Artificial turf can be an overlay onto tarmac, meaning it is a cost-effective option for the Trust and provides a safe play surface suitable for everyone.
Overlay surfacing projects are also much quicker than a full build project, this is because:
A 15mm insitu pad is used to give a softer cushioning underfoot. This is installed onto the tarmac and then artificial grass goes over the top.
Our British manufactured multi-use turf is predominantly a hockey product but is suitable for a variety of different sports including tennis and netball.
We were able to cut markings for the double tennis court, netball and a penalty spot.
Sanding of the MUGA surface is part of the final groom of the artificial grass.
