A Sandwich System Running Track is a hybrid of both the full PU track specification and the textured spray polymeric system as it combines the low cost base course material of the structural spray specification with the surface broadcast wearing course of the PU solid track system.
The Athletics Track Sandwich System is hard wearing, durable and gives the characteristics of the solid PU track system at a cost saving price. The Sandwich System Running Track is non porous so does not allow rainwater through the system and stands out through its good transmission of forces and cost saving so therefore is a popular specification in the UK for quality athletics clubs and running track stadiums.
The two layer Sandwich System Running Track consists of SBR base rubber crumb material mixed onsite with polyurethane binder and EPDM rubberized granules also installed insitu on site with polyurethane resin glue. The EPDM rubber crumb sink down into the SBR base mat and form a granulated surface as the wearing course cures hence the name of sandwich system.
Sandwich System Running Track Costs
Athletics Track Sandwich System prices come in between the costings of a full PU track quote and structural spray polymeric surface and gives the high end playing characteristics as a middle of the range costing.
The Sandwich System Running Track meets both IAAF accreditation and UK Athletics which are the governing bodies in the sport of athletics so is a great surfacing product to have installed for running tracks because it is spike resistant and the possibly the best value specification for athletics surfaces.

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!
Activity For All
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!
