This project was to install an outside gym to St. Aidens School in Harrogate. This project was the second for the school as CLS Sports had previously installed their synthetic carpet MUGA. This gym was positioned to one end of that MUGA.
Prior to installing the gym equipment the levels on the site (170m2 in total) needed to be reduced by 225mm. Once the material was removed the whole area was compacted prior to laying a 'Terram' geotextile membrane and a 150mm depth of Type 1 sub base.
As this scheme involved laying a 'Playrite Matchwinner' Velour 16mm carpet a 20mm sand bed was placed prior to laying the carpet. Once the carpet was in place sand infill was placed in the carpet at the rate of 15kg/m2.
The outdoor gym equipment installed included the following:
Forty (40m) of 4.50m high fencing was installed around the outdoor gym along with a single 1.2m gate. The pictures shown here were taken before the excess sand was swept off the Playrite carpet on handover.
