Construction Base and Underlay:
Synthetic turf performance and longevity can only be as good as the base it is installed over. Quality synthetic grass installations require a high performance base and the construction or preparation of the base is just as important as the underlay and Grassman surface you choose.
Grassman offer an in-house design and Engineering team to assist with your specific project, to meet the specifications determined by various sporting bodies and offer CAD drawings. Together with our approved installation partners we ensure the appropriate base configuration, drainage requirements, underlay recommendations and surface tolerances for your sport or application.
There are different preparations and methods used for bases dependant on your location, soil testing and the sport or application. The options include asphalt, concrete or natural with or without shock-pads.
Where a strong functional base is required under your synthetic grass surface, we suggest:
- Site evaluation and soil testing to evaluate the required earthworks
- The necessary sub-base to support the load intended
- If and to what extent drainage is required
- Drainage containment or re-direction options
Your chosen builder, construction company or grass installer will offer a complete service including designs, construction, drainage requirements, underlay systems, fencing and edging, synthetic grass product choice and installation and lighting systems.
Grassman’s is proud to offer a unique option in our patented Cushion and Drainage Underlay
