Athletics landing sand pit have edgings installed at the time of construction as standard. These can be installed for a number of reasons as they can provide a hard standing area for the referee to assess the jump length. They can also provide an area that will prevent weeds from entering the actual sand landing pit and the landing sand pit edging can also provide protection from newly cut grass from entering the sand landing pit. The sand pit edgings can be made from EPDM Wet Pour surfacing and this is also known as soft safety surface or poured in place.
They can also be made from concrete flags. Both surface types have a standard width of 450mm but these can be tailored to suit most designs, specifications and budget requirements.
