• Environment

    Based in Yorkshire, surrounded by the beautiful countryside, we are reminded daily of the need to ensure that the products we manufacture are sustainable. With the decisions we make we consider not only the needs of our synthetic surfaces today but also the environmental impact on tomorrow. Playrite treat their impact on the environment very seriously and monitor objectives and practices to ensure that both Playrite and the whole National Floorcovering Group are committed to being environmentally responsible.

    As a company we are committed to environmentally responsible business practices throughout the design and manufacture of our sports surfaces, from basic energy efficiency to product specification. Complying with current, relevant environmental legislation we have full accreditation to BS EN ISO 14001:2004 and appropriate industry codes of practice.

    Waste reduction, re-use and recycling are a daily practice – as is the safe and responsible disposal of waste. Our Matchpad underlay is made from a mixture of waste fibres that are produced during production and end of line surplus fibre that would otherwise go to landfill.

    Simply by selecting products by Playrite, you are helping to protect the environment in terms of the reduction in water and electricity that is needed to maintain a natural grass lawn.  Although artificial surfaces are much lower maintenance than a natural sports pitch, synthetic surfaces are not maintenance free. By following a proper maintenance guideline the life expectancy of the surface can increase by an additional 5 years, thus reducing the need to replace the surface and increasing longevity.
