UK schools are frequently looking for the most suitable synthetic turf surface for playground games and sports lessons. MUGAs are becoming an increasingly recognised way to optimise the budget and space available for school playgrounds and sports areas. Synthetic Turf Management works with schools to provide artificial turf playground surfaces (*astro turf) that meet the very demanding school environment; durability is key for heavy use during curriculum and extra curricular time.

STM is proud to have developed a unique synthetic turf playground system called STM EPIC, “Education and Play In Colour”, which uses multi use court markings and/or traditional playground games to transform your playground into a fun and safe play area. The coloured turf is perfect for Primary, Nursery and SEN schools.

Artificial turf playground surfaces enhance the way children play and interact with each other. Artificial grass that is designed especially for primary schools can transform the outside environment into safe, creative and colourful playgrounds.

Artificial turf for secondary schools can provide a cost and space effective solution to the various different sports covered in P.E. lessons, including football, hockey, netball/basketball and tennis. Take a look at our synthetic turf for sports pages for more information. STM works directly with world-class manufacturers to ensure products are tested to national and international standards.

STM also specialises in the design and installation of tailored artificial grass areas for specialist schools. We have worked in the past with schools of children of all ages with varying levels of learning difficulties. We are proud to have designed sensory playground surfaces that are colourful, creative and practical for such schools.

There are many benefits to opting for synthetic turf for your school, including:

  • Low maintenance: artificial turf requires much less maintenance than a real grass surface, and is extremely durable
  • Flexible installation: the turf can be installed on grass, concrete, and designed over mounds/hills and sloping areas
  • Robust: all of our artificial turf products are tough and hard wearing, as well UV stable and resistant to burning
  • Practical: at STM we have the highest standards when it comes to health and safety; all of our turfs are non-slip and suitable for all weather conditions
