40mm thick depth artificial grass 3G sports surfaces is generally used for football, hockey and futsal sports. The 40mm thick 3G surface is a sand and rubber infilled artificial grass usually installed onto a sports shockpad. The sports shockpad is usually a rubber insitu underlay however other shock pads are available like the brock shockpad, rebounce foam shockpad and the matchpad synthetic surface underlay.
40mm depth pile height synthetic turf is manufactured by many suppliers and at soft surfaces we try not to tie ourselves in with any single supplier for this because we listen to what the client needs and we make a decision which turf is the best option to go with. Other suppliers may be fixed into using one supplier and then obviously their opinions and advice is blinkered to that one supplier. We can obviously advise on what we feel is the best type of artificial grass and then let the client make the choice as there are several suppliers out there including playrite, rhino turf, tiger turf, mondo, polytan, desso and many more.
The sand infill has to be a particular type which is a silica sand to meet the playing characteristics set by accredited bodies such as the FA, FIFA, IRB and RFU. Likewise the rubber infill is needed to be within specification to meet the playing characteristics. The costs of these specific materials can be more expensive but is needed to be used to meet the accreditation and trying to save costs on these items need not apply because could affect the way the sports pitch plays.
The 40mm depth synthetic turf is great to play varied sports on and is most common for 3g football pitch grass and when the depth is a longer pile height like upto 60mm depth then the playing characteristics is more driven to a contact sport like rugby league or rugby union because it needs to be more cushioned underfoot.
