Surfaces For Athletics
Empowering athletes to go faster, higher and longer than ever before
Surfaces For Athletics
The evolution of the athletics track has allowed athletes to go faster, higher and longer than ever before. Tuff Group has been at the forefront of this development and has installed a range of athletics facilities in a variety of locations.
Because of the precise nature of the sport, athletics facilities require specific expertise. Its critical that these surfaces are constructed and then installed to very fine tolerances so that that athletic performance is enhanced – not hindered.
Tuff Group offers an end-to-end solution for athletics installations. We have internal resources for every stage of the concept, design, construction and installation process. Because of our this, we can provide advice and services based on real experience, not theory. Every situation if different and all the aspects need to be taken into account to get the best result.
Our design and engineering teams ensure that the underlying base on which athletic surfaces are laid are of the highest standard. This is important, because the most challenging stage of installation is in constructing the base on with the track and field surface will be placed. No matter what the quality of the surface itself, it will fail if the base is not perfectly engineered and prepared.
Tuff Group have a full internal construction team that is able to implement the exact design and engineering elements that have been specified. The installation team then places the surface on the base, maintaining the same standards and delivering a surface that will last for years and be enjoyed by all who use it.
As with all surfaces, athletics facilities must be properly maintained. This is important for day-to-day use, but also means that the surfaces will last longer, in turn reducing the need for unnecessary capital expenditure. Our Tuff Maintenance team now has world-leading technology to ensure that the surface will be maintained, but that you’ll have access to every element of this maintenance whenever you need it.
Tuff Group National Commercial Manager Travis Knight has personally overseen the construction and installation of many athletics surfaces during the past two decades. Call Travis for a discussion about how your athletics surface can be delivered on-time, on budget and to world-class standards.
