3G Field of Dreams
The project involved the construction of a full-size synthetic GAA pitch, complete with shock pad and including all related groundworks. While the pitch surface is unique, the work below ground is equally important. A well build base is critical for any 3G construction project and will ensure your pitch plays better and lasts longer.
The subbase layers of firmly compacted stone and blinding optimize drainage and increase stability. The 60mm two-fibre Superb carpet with sand and rubber infill enhances performance and gives a better grip for foot/surface interaction. Underneath the grass carpet the shock pad is designed to take the hardness out of high-impact situations and reduce the risk of injury. Despite challenging weather conditions, including some very strong winds at times, there was very little delay.
PST Sport’s Superb artificial grass carpet is the latest in synthetic turf technology. It is extremely durable, resilient, soft to touch, controls infill splash and ultimately designed with enhanced player performance in mind.
“We are delighted that one of the country’s top GAA clubs chose PST Sport to deliver this world-class facility. The club wanted something durable with a soft feel to it. The new pitch looks superb. It will be a fantastic asset to the club and will allow for a significant increase in coaching and playing hours.”
