Extended play time – A game changer for sport
A natural grass pitch begins to deteriorate after a certain amount of play, while a PST Sport artificial grass pitch can be played on all year round, in all types of weather. With the climate we have here in Ireland clubs and schools are very reliant on the weather and struggle for games, particularly in the winter. With a PST Sport artificial grass pitch, you can double, if not treble the number of matches played, and play games at a higher level.
“I’m Colin Teahon, Managing Director of PST Sport and one of a very sports-mad family. For years, we’d keep seeing matches in all kinds of sports get postponed or called off due to waterlogged pitches. It was always something that annoyed us, so in 2011, we decided to do something about it. We formed PST Sport to answer an increasing demand for high quality 3G pitches, both here in Ireland and beyond. To give everyone a level playing field, and let them play the sport they want to, rain or shine.”
Colin Teahon, MD, PST Sport
Superior quality & extreme durability
PST Sport understand the impact that top class playing facilities have on the development of sport. Our Terra Turf artificial grass offers the latest in artificial turf dual-fibre technology making our artificial turf more realistic looking and extremely durable. The soft polyethylene yarn is non-abrasive and therefore better in contact situations.
Our carpet is manufactured by CCGrass who are the largest producers of artificial grass worldwide. CCGrass is one of the world’s six FIFA Preferred Producers and is one of only four manufacturers approved to FIFA, World Rugby and FIH standards.
Non-abrasive, excellent shock absorption & ball rebound reducing the risk of injury
Our pitch installations include a quality infill system of fine silica sand and crumb rubber which provides excellent shock absorption. This is further enhanced by a specialised shock pad to provide an additional cushioning effect which reduces risk of injury to players. Our PST Sport Terra Turf is made from non-abrasive fibres, while the even playing surface and enhanced ball characteristics mean increased performance and fewer injuries.
Additional revenue generator
An artificial grass pitch can provide additional revenue opportunities for your club or school by hiring out your facility. Many schools and colleges hire out their astro turf pitch to the wider community in the evenings and at weekends to generate additional income. This benefits everyone – the school/college wouldn’t have been using the pitch anyway and it helps to get the local community more involved and more active.
Tailored to your specific needs
Each artificial grass pitch we install is custom tailored to your club/school’s individual requirements. We provide our clients with a full-service tailored solution from initial consultation and detailed design right through to completed pitch installation and maintenance. By working with our customers, we can develop a complete package and welcome the opportunity to be involved at the very early stages of a project.
An artificial grass pitch doesn’t require regular heavy maintenance compared to the labour-intensive maintenance of a natural grass pitch.
Day to day maintenance is also minimal but it’s important to remove any litter. Regular brushing is also advised to redistribute the infill – don’t worry, before project completion our team will train your ground staff in maintenance procedures and will supply you with a calendar for day to day maintenance.
In addition, PST Sport will return each year and carry out our 8 step maintenance programme to ensure your pitch is playing at its best.
