Sports field renovation in Ayuntamiento de Tres Cantos in Madrid, Spain

Photo

The particular challenge of this project was the tightly calculated budget. It was intended to replace the unattractive concrete playing area with a sports surface designed to prevent injury to the players and be attractive to play on, but which also satisfied the typical requirements of common sports and games. At the same time, the surface needed to be tough and unaffected by water.

Due to their competency in this field, the Kraiburg Company was able to offer a solution which fitted the budget and also carried out the installation work through its Spanish partner. The company recommended the sports surface Sporttec Uni Outdoor. This is a product made of coloured EPDM, PU elastomer-bonded granulate with a coarse grained surface structure. This surface is characterised by its excellent resistance to wear and mechanical damage and comfortable tread behaviour.

Sporttec Uni Outdoor from Kraiburg Relastec has proved its value as a floor covering on small playing fields and playgrounds. Its versatility, uncomplicated installation and simple maintenance are only a few of its excellent properties. It combines high wear and slip resistance with an attractive design. In combination with an elastic underlay, Sporttec Uni Outdoor becomes Sporttec Uni Sandwich. This surface additionally reduces the risk of injury to players, thus increasing playing fun.

Sporttec Uni Outdoor is available in a range of colours so that playing fields can be given an individual design or suited to adapt their surroundings. A combination of different colours for different areas is also possible, the penalty area of a small playing field can, for example, be defined in a different colour to stand out from the rest of the pitch.

In this case, the community of Ayuntamiento de Tres Cantos in Madrid chose the classic red.
