Long Jump Equipment

Contact Us

There are lots of different types of long jump runway equipment, all of which are key in ensuring the longevity and quality of the facility remains intact throughout its life. The first piece of long jump runway equipment you need is a sand pit cover; this will ensure that sand pit does not get filled with any contaminants such as twigs and leaves, or anything that could cause potential harm to the athletes using it.

Another key part of long jump runway equipment is the sand pit rake, the rake helps keep the surface of the sand smooth, allowing for easier recording of distances and scores for competitions. The sand pit rakes also ensure that objects in the sand which could cause damage to people landing into the pit are removed, making the surface a lot safer to use for athletes and children.  A key part of long jump runway equipment is the take-off board, without it you can’t distinguish where to start the measurements or whether or not anyone has cheated, meaning the facility can’t be used professionally without one. We also offer line marking repair kits, this ensures that if any of the lines on the take-off board become faded and hard to read, you can easily rectify the problem. There are many types of long jump runway equipment, all of which are essential for the facility to work.


Costs of Long Jump Equipment

Costs of long jump equipment are an essential part of the costs of the facility as a whole, as without majority of the equipment, the facility will become worn down quickly, or it wouldn’t be useable at all. The most important piece of equipment is the take-off board, as the surface wouldn’t be able to be used competitively without it due to not knowing where to measure from. Costs of the sand pit cover will vary depending on the size of the sheet; this will vary for each organisation as the sand pit can be different sizes. You can also get different specifications of sand pits such as the wheel away cover which is perfect for professional and competitive athletics clubs as they offer much more security, but would tend to be outside the budget of a school or leisure centre. We aim to offer the best quality products and services at the best price to ensure that we help each customer stay within their budget but still offer a great value job.

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.

AFC Bournemouth

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

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!
