Artificial Sports Surfaces

Quality Sports Surfaces Around The Globe

LTS offers a one stop solution. From an empty plot of land, we can build a complete facility to include all civil engineering – earthworks, drainage, base construction whether a dynamic or an engineered layer & of course the actual shock pad & artificial sports surface. Ancillary items such as fencing, floodlights, car parking, spectator areas & clubhouses may also be added.

Once installed a full maintenance package can be offered to keep the new investment in tip-top condition for many years to come.

So what type of surfaces are available from LTS? In no particular order we can offer:

Sand Filled

The original artificial surface that truly ticks all the sports boxes – football, hockey, tennis, basketball & netball. A heavily infilled surface will siliceous sand.

Examples to be found on tennis courts, hockey pitches & MUGA’s

Sand Dressed

A new breed of surface that tends to have a much higher face weight & thus requires much less sand – “more green less sand”.

Water Based

Top end hockey surface that is used for high level hockey & international play. The surface that all top-end hockey clubs strive to play on. No infill other than a bed of water providing the surface with the support & performance to play on.


A budget level surface that can be left “black” & line marked only or fully coloured coated with lines. Another truly multi-sports surface bit like a sand-filled surface but without the cost of that surface. Sometimes used as a staging post for some clubs on the way to installing a suitable artificial surface on top when funds allow. Very durable & less maintenance required than on other surfaces. Be careful not to fall on macadam though – ouch!


A rubberised layer that offers another multi-surface option for eg MUGA’s. Also can be used for athletics & dedicated tennis courts. Usually laid by a paver machine on site & can be colour coated with anti-slip paint.

3g Pitches

A surface that arrived in the UK in the late 1990’s & has totally transformed the way we play football on artificial surfaces. Pile height between 40-65mm the infill is a mixture of siliceous sand on the bottom & rubber crumb on top. With a suitable thicker shock pad can also be used for rugby.

Pitches come in all shapes & sizes from very small MUGA’s areas eg 40 x 20m up 7-a-side football pitches normally around 60 x 40m up to full-size hockey/football pitches around 7000m2 in size.
