Our Manufacturing Process

Step 1: Material Selection

Every Playrite surface begins with the careful selection of high quality raw materials that meet strict quality standards, ensuring durability and safety. Our team of experts assesses the materials’ composition and texture to guarantee that the final product aligns with our core values and meets the high expectations of our customers.

Different types of surfaces


Utilising layered needled fibres to form a durable multi-sports surface with minimal sand content, reducing maintenance costs by eliminating secondary backing and enhancing porosity.

Tufted requires fibres to be punched
through a primary backing to create a U
shaped tuft, mimicking a natural grass
appearance and performance.


Created by weaving the backing yarn and
pile yarn together as one to create a very
dense pile surface. This produces a highly
stable, non-directional pile which provides
a consistent ball roll and lasting strength.

Step 2: Precision Manufacturing

Our manufacturing process combines traditional craftsmanship with modern technology. Using advanced machinery and equipment, our skilled technicians meticulously cut, shape, and assemble the main surface components.
