Frequently Asked Questions

The process of exporting is in stages; it begins with the processing of the order, leads onto the production of the surface and finally ends with a quality check to ensure the surface is the best quality for our customers. After the surface has passed its quality check it can then begin its journey overseas.

What primary sports are to be played? What level of sport will be played? Is a low maintenance surface key to your decision? How often will the facility be used?

Playrite offer seven surface options, all with unique preference and playing characteristics.

Playrite offer a five year manufacturer’s warranty for any defects found in your surface; you must realise the smaller the surface the more durable the surface you require. On average a well-used surface of an area around 700sqm should last approximately seven years, whereby an area in excess of 3000sqm should last 10 years minimum.

Playrite work with numerous consultants who specialise in the design of dynamic sports bases and by amending a client’s specification slightly, anything can be possible.

This depends on the type of sports you will be playing on it. If the primary sports require ball bounce, such as tennis or basketball, then no shock pad would be preferable. If football is to be the primary sport then a shock pad is recommended for for protection when falling and also to reduce ball bounce.

Many tufted type surfaces are restricted on colour such as terracotta, light green and blue. Our needlepunch surfaces are readily available in over 12 colours and if the facility requires a specific pantone colour this can also be considered.

Maintenance is an important part aspect with any synthetic surface, not just to enhance the visual aspect of the surface, but also to enable consistent playing performance throughout its life span. Artificial surfaces are cheaper to maintain that natural grass pitches. You must consider the costs involved in providing equipment and labour to maintain your surface against the cost to employ a company to carry out routine maintenance visits every month or quarter – dependent upon your type of surface.

Our needlepunch surfaces are all weather and can be used all year round. Needlepunch is the most durable method and will drain faster than a conventional tufted surface. It is not recommended to remove snow from the surface, however a synthetic surface will generally thaw quicker than hard surfaces such as tarmacadam.
