SUMMER IS APPROACHING, IT’S TIME TO GET THOSE TURFS LOOKING GREAT

Why Parks Supplies is a fan of the 4G (non-filled) Multi-Purpose Turf and cheering for it…

It can be played on all year round and isn’t susceptible to weather.
Artificial turf is durable. It can be played on more frequently and for longer, unlike a natural pitch it deteriorates after 250 hours of play.

4G non-filled turf

3G in-filled turf

Being a non-filled turf has its bonuses, as it requires little maintenance and has little spillage unlike the 3G in-filled turf. There will be no rubber granules getting stuck inside your footwear or socks. There are also no footwear restrictions or unpleasant odours for the non-infilled turf.

4G turf is multi-purpose. It’s not just a sports pitch.

Great for various school activities, picnics, using the pitch as a playground at recess, community gatherings, sports days, or letting external club/ teams use the pitch for training and playing for all levels.

Here are some Greenfields 4G turf pitches we have built.

Wah Yan College, Kowloon (Yau Ma Tei, KLN), Aug 2014 | 5,500 sqm

Skypitch, Kellett School (Kowloon Bay, KLN), Nov 2013 | 3,400 sqm

La Salle College (Kowloon Tong, KLN), Aug 2009 | 7,200 sqm

We don’t just leave you after we have installed your 4G turf. Our after-sales service is just as equally as important. We will help train and demonstrate to the relevant people on how to maintain the turf and how to use the maintenance machinery.

We’re always happy to hear from you. If you’d like to hear more about 4G turf, we will be delighted to explain further. Our technical and installation team have so much knowledge to share!
