Playrite are the only UK
manufacturer to produce needlepunch, tufted and woven synthetic
surfaces and this means we can offer a diverse range of multi use
and sports specific surfaces as well as playground safety systems
and leisure grasses.
Needlepunch surfaces are predominantly used for multi use games
areas, tennis courts and playground safety areas, but are also very
suitable for practice cricket areas and bowling green's as well as
golf pathways and tee areas. The benefits of a needlepunch surface
are durability and hardwearing alongside a high porosity rate,
variety of colours, and Playrite's needlepunch surfaces meet
EN15330 Part 2 standards.
So how are needlepunch surfaces made?
The construction starts
with polypropylene staple fibres being placed into a machine at the
exact pile weight requirement.
The fibres are then combed into line through a carding machine
layering the fibres in one direction, then into a needling loom
which interlocks the coarser denier fibre creating a flat
This is then placed on a structure machine which designs the
required pile design and height specification.
