Types of Surfaces for Athletics Tracks and Athletics Facilities

Surfacing is available in several types. The main types of athletics surface are split into two groups: permeable and non-permeable. These then split into sub-groups: those that are constructed in situ (on site), those that are prefabricated (off site) and combinations of these.

Pitch and Track are experts in this field and can help clients select the most appropriate system for their athletics facility.
