Artificial Turf Football Pitches by Synthetic Turf Management

At STM we provide the best in artificial turf technology. Our product is made from soft, non abrasive fibres that are designed to replicate natural grass. This technology means that the football sits perfectly with the surface, and footballers are able to slide-tackle and perform naturally. Our synthetic turf comes in a varied range, with the product coming in long pile turf in both monofilament and fibrillated yarns.

Sand filled and more traditional astro turfs have a short pile and are filled to approx. 5mm below the top of the fibre. This system is typically cheaper whilst offering a variety of sports uses, not just football. Sand dressed astro turfs are typically denser and filled with less sand than the sand filled surfaces. Third generation (3G) football pitches come in a variety of pile heights from 40mm to 65mm. 3G turfs come with a combination of silica sand, which is installed at the bottom, and rubber infill, which is layered to create a secure platform and shock absorption.

STM will cater synthetic turf to your specific needs. Pitches can be designed in various sizes depending on use and include the option of fencing systems and rebound boards, which create a safe playing environment. As part of the fencing installation we can install goal recesses and pitch dividers to enhance the overall usage of the pitch.

STM can also install football floodlighting solutions from our partner The Sports Lighting Company, which can offer design, installation, and maintenance solutions for football sports lighting.

Pitch markings and cross pitch markings offer a range of playing areas, including 5-a-side football. Pitch dividers provide separate areas for training and team coaching. Seating and shelter installation is also available.
