Football Lawn Grounding Guide
Jul 26, 2018

At present, the foundations used in artificial turf sports grounds are asphalt concrete type, waterproof concrete type, gravel foundation and Sanqi soil foundation. The choice of basic type and drainage system is more about considering the functional requirements and economic conditions of the site. According to the experience of our factory, the requirements of the international football institutions for the venue are stable and stable. It is recommended to use the asphalt foundation, and more to choose the drainage inside the pipeline. In cold weather areas, it is hoped to increase the geothermal system. In the ordinary stadium or school playground, the turtle drainage structure is generally selected. Considering the service life of the foundation and the connection with the plastic foundation, the asphalt concrete foundation is more common in domestic sports venues.


The site design should be based on the geological report of the location of the sports site, the annual precipitation of the location and the maximum amount of precipitation, and the location of the location. Therefore, we remind everyone that the artificial turf sports ground is based on the artificial turf carrier, and its quality will directly affect the performance of the entire artificial turf football field.

The basics of the artificial turf football field are basically stable and do not collapse. According to its different structure, it can be divided into various surface layers: asphalt concrete surface layer, reinforced concrete surface layer, limestone surface layer and guava stone surface layer.


The asphalt surface layer is more popular in the country. It has waterproof performance and cannot directly infiltrate the water. It can only be drained obliquely depending on the slope of the site. When the rain is large, the accumulated water in the site will be collected into small flowing water, causing the loss of quartz sand and rubber particles on the lawn. The edge of the site will also accumulate too much water, and it is difficult to discharge the accumulated water in a short time. The same problem exists with reinforced concrete finishes.


The ash number of the limestone surface layer can be adjusted small, and the guar stone itself has no ash number, so the water permeability of the two surface layers is better. The size of the stone is the same as that of the asphalt surface. The rainwater can directly penetrate into the gravel layer and the dry hard soil layer below, which can reduce the loss of quartz sand rubber particles on the lawn and alleviate the water accumulation in the site. However, these two types of top layers cannot be used in areas where the winter is relatively cold. If the water infiltrated into the surface layer is not discharged in time, it will swell in the winter, causing unevenness on the surface of the site.

The limestone surface guava stone surface layer has good water permeability, and the surface layer is the same as the asphalt, which is relatively cheaper in price. Therefore, we hereby recommend the use of the limestone surface and the guillotine layer as the site base for the artificial turf football field, but it is better to use the asphalt or cement surface layer in the colder winter.

The site foundation using asphalt or cement surface layer can refer to the construction requirements of the road surface, but it is necessary to pay attention to maintaining the overall shape during construction, so that the middle of the site is high and low, the slope should be kept at 0.3%~0.5%, and drainage should be set around the site. ditch. The site foundation of the limestone surface and the guava surface requires pre-buried drainage lines.
