Making play areas usable all year round

Highly authentic as well as extremely durable, artificial grass allows you to utilise areas all year round. Coupled with minimal maintenance it makes it an excellent and worthwhile long-term investment.
 
Manufactured to exacting standards, our artificial grass range is the result of careful research into the best length and yarn type for each particular application. In order to make sure it stands up to the rigorous demands of school play areas we have developed it to a particular standard.
 
We use UltraMat ShockPad as an impact-absorption underlay. Alongside the grass, we install it underneath the to provide fall height protection.

“Playcubed have transformed our outdoor space from an unusable muddy slope into an amazing two-tiered learning area. The children absolutely love the brightly coloured, interactive, all of which enrich learning across the curriculum. The experience was seamless, and we look forward to using their service again.”

SuperBlade

SuperBlade has a 20mm pile length making it soft and lush, whilst being very adaptable for creative design and play mound features.

SuperBlade is often used alongside our other artificial grass products to create contrasting effects.

SuperBlade features a C-section pile in two shades of green, complete with a shorter curled yarn in brown and beige, which is a highly authentic turf that suits most applications. A specialist kiln-dried sand infill, unique for its rounded particles, keeps the pile upright ensuring the grass stays looking its best for years to come.

EliteTurf

EliteTurf is a highly authentic and versatile artificial grass surface featuring a 35mm pile, which as a result feels thick and lush underfoot.

MegaSport

Specifically designed for sports pitch surfaces, MegaSport has ultra low surface resistance, as well as rebound characteristics which make it ideal for all game types.

MegaSport has been specifically engineered as a sports surface with its high density i18mm curled yarn providing low surface resistance. Consistent rebound characteristics enhance quality and speed of play. This is combined together with closely knitted yarn ensures it will not interrupt the natural roll or bounce of a ball.

MegaSport is highly durable with 58,800 stitches per square metre, ensuring your pitch will withstand years of play. We try and test our adhesives and seaming tapes to FIFA, IRB, ECB and ITF standards.

In addition, pitch markings are available in a range of different colours to denote different sports.

UltraMat

UltraMat is an impact absorbing underlay with professional rebound characteristics that is used beneath artificial grass to minimise risk and above all, create the ultimate play surface.

This system uses an interlocking polyethylene foam pad underlay to provide Critical Fall Height protection around play equipment, ensuring the safety of all users.

It is also installed underneath artificial grass sports pitches to help absorb the impact of players running on the surface and reduce the incidence of lower limb injuries.

UltraMat is available in 9mm, 15mm, 25mm and 35mm thickness, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. In fact, they manufacture it using entirely recycled material.
