3G, or third generation sports pitches, are the modern standard when it comes to artificial turfing for football and other sports. Widely used for kickabouts of all sizes and statures, there are even some big name football clubs in the UK making use of 3G standards to this day.
While old artificial turfing may have struggled with the bounce factor, 3G sports pitch installations are designed to offer sturdy, consistent action and optimal control on the ball.
As experienced local contractors in surfacing for all types of sports and activities, 3G pitches are just some of what we offer to local clubs, schools and more besides. But what is it about 3G turf that makes it so desirable?
Why do so many big clubs, local or otherwise, make use of the technology? In this brief guide, we will take a closer look at why 3G is considered one of the best options around for artificial turf.
A 3G sports pitch construction is designed to emulate FIFA standards.
That means they are ideally suited to football, as mentioned – but it doesn’t matter whether you’re playing Sunday league or school cup matches – this is high-quality, hard-wearing material which can withstand years of regular footfall, traffic and all manner of upsets.
If you are interested in arranging for a 3G pitch construction from a nearby firm, we’re here to help. We are the closest support network many clubs and schools have when it comes to setting up artificial pitches for various means.
Therefore, you can always turn to us for a reliable quote and additional guidance on what to expect from artificial surfacing.
3G sports pitch maintenance is surprisingly simple. As this type of surfacing is durable and ready to spring back up at any moment, it should come as no surprise that little will need to be done to keep your turf in great shape.
During installation and even during the quote process we will offer you plenty of advice on how to make the most of your new 3G turf. Therefore, you will always be able to make the most of it without having to wipe down or tidy anything up as you go.
A good 3G field will look after itself. It’s part of why this type of installation is so cost-effective! Our 3G installations are porous and weather-ready, which means that any downpour will easily flow away at only a second’s notice.
Whereas normal grass or less turfing may be slippy or hard to get used to when playing football or rugby, a 3G field offers incredible control and poise. There’s little wonder why it’s used to help professional clubs and players do their best from match to match.
