Astroturf 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th Generation All Weather Pitches are being advertised all over the UK and many advertisements tried to boast having the latest innovation whether this is a 4G, 5G or even 6G synthetic turf carpet but with regards to the accreditations the certificates only have been passed to third generation 3G pitch standards.
4G is specified and designed to be a non infill artificial grass but FIFA, IRB, RFU, RFL, FA or FIH havent yet approved this surface to be the 4G standard turf. 5G is being advertised to be a full rubber infilled artificial grass surface but as the 4th generation hasnt been passed then the fifth generation certainly has not and the local club to myself who is advertising 6G ball courts is basically marketing to boast the newest pitches around.
3G sports pitches are basically an outdoor grass carpet infilled with silica sand and rubber granules which gives the playing performance for the surface to meet football use, rugby use or even hockey use as long as the pile height fibre is shorter because hockey players always want the surface to be faster than what rugby players would prefer.
