Structural Spray Polymeric Surfacing
The sprayed rubber flooring is also known within the market place as porous structural spray running track surfacing. This consists of an SBR rubber granule base course material and this is mixed on site with a polyurethane resin binder and installed to a prepared sub base. This base mat is then sprayed with an EPDM rubber material which is also mixed onsite. This is combined with a PU resin binder but then sprayed to give the textured finish for this surfacing specification.
The Porous Structural Spray Running Track wearing course in EPDM can come in a selection of colours with the most common being red, blue or green. The majority of the UK athletics tracks are installed in the red colour also known as the tartan track. You can customise the look of your facility with a specific colour scheme or size to make sure it’s perfect for your school or club.
Textured Running Track Costs
The reason the structural spray specification is so popular is because the textured running track costs are less than the sandwich system or PU Track specifications and whilst not as hardwearing the re-application of this Porous Structural Spray Running Track will economically prolong the lifespan of the existing athletics surfacing.
These porous textured athletics track specifications can be laid and installed in conjunction with IAAF track accreditation and UK athletics governing body certification but you need to make sure you check this because many contractors and suppliers have different binders they use from manufacturers like Polytech, Polytan, Stockmeier or Rosehill.

Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.
When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with.

We believe we received good value for money by opting to use Soft Surfaces and would like to thank the team for making it painless and stress-free installation experience. We were particularly impressed with the degree of flexibility your exercised as we wanted to change the perimeter area. It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product. In summary i would be happy to reccomend Soft Surfaces without hesitation or reservation; it was a pleasure doing business with you!

Soft Surfaces came to run a brief presentation on the advantages of their product and why he felt that this was best value and straight away we understood what we was getting as a product, service and installation. I am more than happy with how the project ran with it being delivered ontime, within budget and now have a great football artificial 3G surface. I would strongly recommend dealing with James Dooley at Soft Surfaces who will talk you through the various costs, specifications and finer details because would definitely like to point out that the cheapest is not always the best value. Massive thank you to the team for providing us now with a thriving new facility!
Golborne High School
I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!
