Sand Filled Pitch Specification

Contact Us

There are a number of different sand filled specifications to choose from when you decide to install a 2G synthetic turf sports facility. We can offer a range of sand filled surface designs in different dimensions and area sizes which provide perfect playing characteristics for sports such as football, hockey and tennis.

You can contact our team today to find out more about these sports pitch designs and the prices for installation. Just let us know the details of your project including an area size and location so we can provide an accurate quote.

2G Artificial Turf Design

The 2G sand filled specification surfacing is made of a vertical pile carpet with a 22-24mm pile height, a layer of silica sand infill is installed at the base of the grass fibres. This sand infill makes the surface durable and long lasting, as well as enhancing playing characteristics for the sports you want to play. You can also have inlaid line marking installed as part of the sand filled surface designs; these can be applied in a range of colours to distinguish between different sports if you want to create a multi use games area. Another great quality of the sand filled specification and the sub base is that all the layers are completely porous, allowing water to drain straight through to prevent flooding, this means the 2G synthetic surfacing can be used as an all weather facility.

The installation process for the 2G sand filled specification consists of a geotextile membrane to prevent the growth of plants through the surface, then a dynamic stone sub base and a layer of engineered porous macadam to stabilise the ground, next a shockpad to provide impact absorption, and finally the sand filled synthetic grass carpet itself.


Designs for Sand Filled Surfacing

We can help you customise a number of bespoke designs for sand filled surfacing which meet the performance characteristics for the sports you want to play, while still fitting within your budget to ensure you get a sports facility you’ll be completely happy with. Your sand filled specification can be altered to fit the area size and dimensions of the existing space you have available, so you could choose to have a full sized 2G sports pitch or a smaller pitch if you have limited space or want to reduce costs. Our aim is to help you design a sand filled specification which gives you the sports facility you’re looking for but at a great value price, so we can tailor a flexible quote to suit individual surface specifications and budget requirements.

There is also a range of additional equipment and accessories which you can include within the sand filled surface designs to help you make the most of the overall installation. Some of these extras include sports rebound fencing in a range of heights, floodlights to allow the 2G pitch to be used outside of daylight hours, and maintenance equipment so you can keep your sand filled surfacing in top condition for as long as possible. It’s important to consider all of these extra options when you’re looking into creating a sand filled specification for your sports facility, this will ensure you get the best overall sport surface which will have great performance qualities and be suitable for use for a long time.


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!
