Synthetic Turf Pitches
Artificial surfaces for Rugby have finally arrived!
The IRB have recognised the need for artificial surfaces that meet the unique needs of rugby and have produced standards outlining those requirements.
Both rugby codes impose some unique demands on synthetic turf in terms of tear resistance, impact absorption and skin abrasion. We can meet these demands at the highest level and have installed surfaces meeting the IRB draft requirements at London Wasps and Worcester Warriors.
ALC recognise that budget constraints might necessitate a club or school to require a surface that can meet more general needs. We can supply surfaces that will allow rugby, football and general training, some of which have been tested and meet both IRB and FIFA requirements.
All the rugby surfaces we offer are '3G' sand and rubber-filled, which allow the use of studded footwear if required. Soft polyethylene fibres minimise the risk of friction burns and yet possess great strength and durability to produce surfaces suitable for both games and training.
Natural Turf Pitches
As a company our origins are from the natural grass market. This has given us a great deal of experience in full pitch construction and improvements to existing pitches, such as land drainage, gravel banding/sand slitting and soil amelioration.
Whether your interest is in natural or synthetic surfaces, we will be pleased to make a site inspection to discuss your requirements.
