Artificial surfaces for Rugby pitches

SSL are delighted that the Rugby governing bodies have amended their rules so that they now allow the use of artificial grass pitches for competition use.

For us this is a recognition of the quality of the artificial grasses used for pitches and follows the ongoing development and improvements to artificial grass surfaces.

The products offered today can replicate the game surface of natural growing grass.

These surfaces, often referred to as long pile (or third generation) artificial grass, have a much deeper pile than the now lesser used sand filled surfaces. Long pile surfaces are generally partially filled with rubber or rubber and sand mixes.
