To create a fully efficient playing field (with a surface of natural or synthetic grass, earth, or sand) for frequent use, including in bad weather or after sudden heavy rain, effective drainage is essential.
The drainage requirements for natural grass playing fields are particularly demanding because of the need for frequent watering and because they can become unusable if damaged by stagnating water, mud, or puddles.
A drainage system made from Laterlite Expanded Clay makes possible:
Depending on design requirements the drainage system may be placed
Laterlite Expanded Clay can be used in the drainage systems of soccer or rugby fields, golf courses, tennis courts surfaced with red clay or grass, racecourses, riding schools, beach volleyball courts, bowling greens, and recreational or open-air play areas in general.
Depending on the design requirements, the performance of a playing surface can be optimised by laying it on successive levels of expanded clay of different granular sizes.
