STM has installed artificial grass in secondary schools, primary schools, and SEN schools all throughout the UK. Our top priorities are safety and long-lastingness; we only provide the finest services and goods while also offering ongoing maintenance to our clients.
When building a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA), be sure to follow SAPCA's guidelines for the highest possible game structure and standards.
Our experts have years of experience and provide a wide range of services to fit your needs, including synthetic turf surfacing with the option of play surface and pad or international level pad and surface to meet national governing body standards. This includes fencing, floodlights, and more extensive base construction. STM also provides enhanced and restoration services on all existing play areas, playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts, and sport pitches.
A multi-use game area is a court that may accommodate a variety of sports. They are divided into groups, as follows:
Type 1 and Type 2: These are suited for children who participate in sports activities such as netball, basketball, and tennis. They have slip finishes and coatings to provide excellent grip and are frequently tinted.
Type 3 and Type 4: These polymeric rubber-coated MUGAs are suitable for 5-a-side football games, netball, and basketball.
Type 5A: These are sand-filled synthetic grass surfaces with a textured artificial grass surface. They are more adaptable and sturdy, making them ideal for hockey and football in clubs and astroturf at schools.
Type 5B: The majority of the surface is sand, although it has been dressed with astroturf for playgrounds finish and is mostly suited for hockey. It allows balls to move smoothly along the surface, making them ideal for professional games.
Type C: Features a multisport needle punch finish that's particularly good for playing hockey and football, as well as running tracks in athletics.
3G MUGA: This surface is ideal for both community and professional rugby and football games. To improve player safety and performance, it has rubber crumb and sand infill.

MUGAs are a cost-effective alternative for sports clubs and institutions, allowing you to avoid utilising other areas. If you don't have much room at school, they might be a good option.
MUGA's, or multi-purpose games areas, are frequently found at sports clubs, schools and colleges because they allow for the practice of a variety of sports and activities in most weather conditions. These facilities may provide significant advantages, such as:

Schools and colleges are now required to participate in a variety of athletic competitions and satisfy certain sports requirements as part of the national curriculum. We can construct an artificial surface that includes a variety of different sports games, such as football, tennis, hockey, netball, and general training. While tennis is played on a shorter turf, football requires longer and softer pile turf blades. This is why building a synthetic turf zone with other synthetic grasses might be a fantastic alternative for council-run facilities when space is limited and funds are available.
Type 5 synthetic turf pitches, which are sand filled or sand dressed, are recommended by the Sports England. These are suitable for most sports, including training for runners and rugby players.
The size of the MUGA depends on the type of sports you choose. A solid fencing system is necessary, as well as rebound boards to surround the field and provide a safe and secure playing environment. We can build goal recesses and pitch dividers into our fence systems to improve the overall usage of the pitch. Nets may be put up if you include basketball and netball in your sports line-up.
The overall pitch markings, as well as cross pitch markings, provide a wide range of playing areas. 5-a-side football markings with pitch dividers provide separate training and team coaching areas. Extra seats and cover can be incorporated into the design and construction of your synthetic turf if they're desired.
STM has a long track record of providing the best possible health and safety in the production and installation of artificial grass. We understand that your school's top priority is ensuring your children's safety.
