3G Pitch Specification

Contact Us

We can design a 3G synthetic pitch specification for your organisation which meets your requirements and gives you a great quality artificial grass sports facility to enjoy.  This type of synthetic grass pitch surfacing is typically used for football and rugby, so it’s important that the performance characteristics of the surface meet the requirements for these sports. The 3G synthetic pitch specification starts with either an engineered or dynamic sub base which ensures that the surface is porous to allow water drainage, as well as providing even foundations for the artificial grass to be installed onto.  We usually recommend that a shockpad is installed beneath the 3G grass carpet, especially if the facility is being used for rugby as the shockpad provides impact absorption to help protect players from injury. Once the artificial grass surfacing has been installed, the next part of the 3G synthetic pitch specification is the sand and rubber infill, this provides the natural playing characteristics for rugby and football and helps to cushion players’ joints and muscles.

You also have the option to choose additional equipment and accessories as part of your 3G synthetic pitch specification. These extra installations could include fencing in a range of heights from 3m-5m, and floodlighting in a number of different designs to suit individual budgets. It’s important to consider all the available options when you’re looking to carry out a 3G synthetic pitch installation, this will make sure you get the best possible artificial grass sports facility for your organisation, whether it’s a school, club or leisure centre.


Designs for 3G Artificial Surfacing

The designs for 3G artificial surfacing can be tailored to suit a range of area sizes and 3G synthetic pitch specifications so you can completely customise the whole installation process.  You can choose to construct a facility which is solely for football or rugby, or a surface which is line marked for both of these sports to give you a bit more variety. We can offer flexible quotes for a wide range of 3G synthetic pitch specifications so you can have full control over the installation process as well as your budget.

As 3G artificial sports surfacing is becoming very popular in the UK and many organisations are choosing to replace old muddy natural grass pitches with more durable synthetic surfaces, these 3G pitches are a great investment for any school or club. A top quality sports facility with the latest 3G synthetic pitch specification can be used for recreational and professional use, as well as giving you the option to rent the facility out in the evenings to help increase revenue. We aim to offer great value sport surfacing products and services which give great performance characteristics and provide a safe sports facility for everyone to use. The designs for each project will vary so we can help you to come up with a truly unique sports facility which suits your requirements in terms of space and budget. Please get in touch with us to ask questions or submit an enquiry with regards to the 3G synthetic pitch specification and we’ll come back to you with professional advice.


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!
