If you’re looking to upgrade your synthetic sports surface then a what is a 4G pitch could be the perfect solution. Often used in professional football stadiums like Manchester City, Arsenal, and Tottenham it is the latest generation of synthetic sports surfaces that are designed to meet the requirements of accredited governing bodies for both rugby and football.
3G pitches are the current standard in football and have a long synthetic grass pile with a mixture of sand infill and rubber crumb. This helps to create the realistic ball bounce and good playability that players have come to expect.
Unlocking the Game-Changing Potential of 4G Pitches: What You Need to Know
However the next generation of football surfacing has been developed to the point where it is now possible to produce a 4G artificial surface which doesn’t need any rubber infill at all. This is due to the latest technology which allows the synthetic turf to be made using a yarn and tuft design which means that the strands of fake grass are held in place with their own fibres rather than being stuck down with rubber or sand.
As a result the 4G pitch only requires specialist maintenance to keep it looking and performing at its best. This includes power sweeping and decompaction of the infill, seam inspection, and removal of weeds, moss and debris. We use the latest in 4G pitch maintenance equipment alongside two decades of experience in the maintenance of a wide range of sports surfaces to ensure that our clients’ pitches always perform at their peak.
