3G Synthetic Surfacing
3rd Generation Artificial Grass
3rd Generation synthetic surfacing (also known as 3G artificial grass) is ideal for football and rugby which utilise longer fibres in a reduced density and filled with a mix of sand infill and rubber infill granules to provide some shock absorption.
3G artificial grass is infilled with silica sand rubber infill. The rubber infill grass is what makes the difference from a 2G to a 3G surface and the rubber infill helps with the playing performance of the ball bounce, absorbing the players impact and speed of the game. The 3rd generation sports grass is used all over the UK in many MUGA areas, sports courts, 5-a-side sports pitches, leisure centres and now is being introduced back into the football league.
The 3G sports pitch has progressed from the days of the synthetic turf plastic pitch where players complained about the surface and now plays exactly like a natural sports grass surface. The 3G football pitches are installed for all 5 a side leagues, 7 a side football pitches and the all weather pitch is never called off.
