Athletics Tracks and Surfaces

Artificial turf athletics tracks and other surfaces such as long jump pits are a popular addition to schools, sports and leisure centres and they can all be installed by Synthetic Turf Management with the best British artificial grass turf.

Athletics tracks help to promote the incredible sport and with certain events such as the Olympics, this generates further interest and the facilities are put to excellent use. These athletics tracks are made using high quality artificial turf.

Why Artificial Turf for your Athletics Track?

The specialist product we use for the tracks is low maintenance, weather proof and super durable. This means that it can be used all year round and there is no danger of slipping. In addition, STM pride ourselves on safety and this is a number one priority in all surfaces especially when running we provide trip free edging.

Depending on the use of the running track and who is using it there are two types of turf that we recommend for the installation:

The turf that we use for our installs is a specialist hockey turf however it is particularly useful for the more specialist sports such as running tracks. STM multi sport turf is the world’s most highly accredited multi-use playing sport which means it is fantastic as part of a MUGA with a running track. The durability of the product is outstanding so if your athletics surface is going to be used regularly this is the artificial turf for you!

 STM play turf is recommended as part of the EPIC product as this is softer and more suitable for nursery or primary school children as part of their playground surface. It is made from Polyethylene and is 24mm in pile height, it also has a texturised feel to it and is a durable turf.
