Outdoor High Jump Products
In order to make the most of an athletics facility, it’s important to have all the best high jump equipment for training and competitions. The different accessories that we supply are used to add both safety and performance characteristics to athletics areas at UK clubs, universities, schools and colleges. You can choose from a selection of designs to meet your budget and the standards your facility requires. As a professional contractor we also carry out the full construction run up tracks and practise spaces so please click here to find out more on this.
For competitive events and athletics training, you will need to accurately measure the height of a jump that each athlete does. This is done with specialist measuring stands and we can supply these outdoor high jump stands and other products for your facility. These stands are positioned at either side of the jumping area and can come in a range of heights depending on the level of ability for those using the facility. We can offer school recreational sized stands up to IAAF governing body international level ones with a range of prices, each of which is fully adjustable for simple versatility.
Athletics Crossbar Equipment
Every high jumping facility needs a crossbar or lath, this is what the athlete jumps over and has to avoid knocking down. We offer two types of crossbars for different uses in either recreational school activities or professional competitions. Flexible laths are most commonly used as high jump equipment at school facilities, these are made of foam with an elastic cord running through it which children and beginners can use to practise safely.
Fibreglass crossbars are typically used for more professional and competitive athletes up to IAAF standards. This type of facility will typically be installed with a polymeric rubber surface specification for optimum performance qualities. We often supply these for athletics clubs who are holding competitions at a professional standard and need the highest specification of equipment. The costs for each of these pieces of equipment will of course be different and we can offer further advice on the prices if you fill in our contact form today!
High Jump Landing Mats
Safety should always be the main priority for any sports area at school, university or club. We supply high jump landing mats which allow athletes to land their jumps safely without risk of injury from falling. Depending on how your athletics facility is used we supply specialist safety matting to suit a range of high jump dimensions, starting from junior school and going up to international competition levels.
You can also use the mats for other track and field events, gymnastics and general PE activities as they are extremely versatile. These landing mats are made from foam with durable PVC covers to resist damage and ensure comfortable impact absorption during use. Each of these landing mattresses comes with a reversible spike resistant wearsheet as well. If you have an outdoor facility, we recommend that you also have a base or platform for your landing mat which will prevent the foam from getting dirty and water damaged.
Compact Athletic Surfaces
Various athletics clubs as well as colleges have begun to get more affordable facilities constructed for athletics. Numerous schools and colleges find it difficult to get sport areas renovated, which means children lose out on athletics chances. The reason behind this could sometimes be as a result of limited space outside or a lack of funds available for the school. Compact sporting facilities are created to fit existing areas and budgets, and also provide practical, motivating features that individuals of all ages as well as every ability could better their physical fitness as well as self confidence. By using these, children are qualified to better running, jumping as well as throwing skills which are part of the FUNdamental phases of development.
In the video above you can see our team laying one of these facilities at a school, using a needlepunch synthetic turf carpet. This is a popular design for recreational tracks because it is soft enough for children to use, and it’s durable enough for everyday use.
Smaller Sized High Jump Fans
For organisations with limited budget and space, the compact sports and athletics facilities make a ideal option for training basic FUNdamental skills within a variety of sports activities. These often include features such as triple jump runways, small sized high jumping fans and also perimeter jogging tracks. When there’s limited space, we can decrease the size and design of specific athletics facilities, as well as compromising on any high jump equipment. The flexibility of the style of compact athletics facilities means that they are relevant to a wide range of situations. Colleges, universities, primary schools and also high schools are able to set up these to complement existing sports activity and play provision.
By participating in distinct sports and athletics activities, kids from Key Stage One – Key Stage Four all can improve learning and also physical fitness abilities. Far more kids may be inspired to participate in the brand new sporting events if they have a high quality and appealing facility available for them to use. For almost any institution attempting to reduce costs and stick within a budget, the small sized recreational facilities provide an excellent solution. Smaller sized features help present the FUNdamentals of sports and athletics therefore children can develop simple skills of motion along with physical activity. We can install a range of athletics track surfacing in different sizes and specifications to suit many budgets.
The introduction of a broad network of compact athletics facilities is a major factor of UKA’s desire to get the interest and need in the sports activity. Considering the IAAF and IPC World Championships are being hosted in London in 2017, it’s likely more and more children will begin to get involved. By enabling young people to use the compact facilities, there’s a greater chance for athletes to better their skills and move into professional athletics clubs as a result.
Woodhouse grove school
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.
Banister Primary School

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.

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!
