Safety Assessments on Sports Pitch

There is a wide range of different artificial sports surfaces and the testing and maintenance required for each is different. The types of fake turf in the UK that require testing are as follows:

  • Macadam MUGA – Testing including slip resistance and permeability tests to be sure that a surface is both SuDS compliant and meets the necessary slip rating set out in the governing body specifications.
  • Polymeric Ball Court – Vertical deformation testing to assess the shock absorption of the surface and assess whether polymeric EPDM rubber has been laid at the required depths.
  • Artificial Grass, sand filled / sand dressed – Test the porosity of the flooring to make certain that sand within the fibres has not become compacted, muddy and contaminated with debris.
  • 3G / 4G / 5G – Latest technology third generation synthetic turf surface testing after installation. Sports field testing - presented on this page - include CFH (critical fall height) tests to ensure that head injuries are prevented when playing on the surfacing.

Synthetic Sport Grass Safety Qualities

There is extremely high importance for the implementation of the test before and after a synthetic sports surface is installed. It is also vital that all local surfaces are well maintained and retested regularly in order to make certain that they comply with the safety and performance guidelines set out in a design specification.

If you're proactive in your assessments and servicing, then it's more likely that your facility and surrounding area will be in excellent condition and have great playing qualities. If surfaces are not checked, then they can become damaged and get worse and worse the longer they are left. This causes hazards and also can cause problems with the surfacing.
