3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th generation artificial synthetic surfacing pitches are being designed and all UK suppliers are trying to innovate the latest design of artificial grass. The synthetic sports pitch industry has evolved massively from the days of plastic pitches that many players complained about.
The 3G sports surfacing is installed in sports club, soccer domes, MUGAs, multi use games areas and schools all over the country which is a rubber chipping infill installed ontop of a silica sand infill. The playing characteristics are great for football, rugby and if a shorter pile 3rd generation suitable for FIH hockey. The 3G sports pitch meets many accreditations from FIFA, RFU, RFL, FA and IRB for rugby league, football, soccer and rugby union.
With regards to the 4G 4th generation turf then there is many suppliers and contractors saying this is a non infill type of carpet and the 5th generation 5G surfacing is supposedly a fully rubber infilled artificial grass but no yet accreditation has confirmed any of this yet and many testing procedures will need to be carried out before we are even close to the 6th generation 6G sports all weather pitches.
