The firm used a similar tile system in its ChildsPlay solution and has now enhanced the product for use in sport.
Lightweight and easy to handle, the tiles have wave-like contours and are said to be quick and simple to install. The structural stability means that half the usual depth of quarried aggregate is required underneath the base, reducing the cost of materials, installation time and the number of lorries required to deliver materials and remove excavated earth. The system is guaranteed, with the correct maintenance and usage, to provide a minimum of 20 years' service.
It has gone through full laboratory testing at Loughborough University, with further performance and drainage testing at Labosport. Made from expanded polypropylene, the tiles are 100 per cent recyclable.
