Maintaining MUGA Pitch Surface in  

Along with regular upkeep of the nearby surface regularly inspecting the surface will help identify any issues or problems with the surfacing and allow early intervention to prevent problems escalating which could possibly resulting in injury or costly repairs. For areas such as MUGA’s were there is a high public usage safety is paramount.

If your local pitch becomes dangerous or hazardous it's important to identify a problem and act quickly. Examples of things to look out for on multi use games areas include the anti-slip paint fading from the surface this would mean that the surfaces anti-slip qualities have worn off meaning the surfacing is no longer suitable for competition standards as well as putting users safety at risk. Possible explanations for this include high usage or the wrong footwear being worn on the multisport flooring near me, if acted quickly upon the correct anti-slip rating can be maintained by applying a flash coat. Regular upkeep is important for all kinds of outdoor surfaces in your surrounding area, including others that we install like garden grass, golf greens and synthetic cricket wickets so be sure to look into all of your options.

It is important to maintain infill levels on both 2G and 3G multisport surfaces as if the infill becomes to compact this can inhibit drainage. Failing to monitor and maintain sand and rubber infill levels can also lead to the artificial turf pile height wearing down. This can affect the playing qualities of your area and can lead to having the whole synthetic grass replaced.

What is Pitch Rejuvenation?

Pitch rejuvenation is the process of replacing dirty sand infill with brand new infill to improve the porosity of the facility. In some cases the infill will not have to be replaced, but can be cleaned and installed again. The first part of our rejuvenation process is removing the dirty sand-infill and then redistributing the clean infill across the pitch. It's important to regularly redistribute the infill to make sure that the water can still drain through the surface. Should the infill is not redistributed often, the pores in the surface could become blocked which could cause the pitch to flood or become water logged.
