In sports ground construction, various building materials are used for the surfacing and the layers beneath it. The choice of surfacing depends mainly on the type of sport and the intensity of use. The most important materials include mineral materials such as crushed clay aggregates and slag for mineral surfacing, natural stone of volcanic origin or lava for the dynamic layers, and brick dust for tennis court surfaces. By far the largest proportion of surface materials, however, is accounted for by synthetic turf systems and safety surfaces.
Various concepts and types of synthetic turf are available for the construction of football pitches and small pitches. In creating a durable overall system with properties as similar as possible to those of natural turf, a suitable elastic layer is of vital importance. To ensure the longest possible life of the pitch and good sports properties, the synthetic turf, infill material and elastic layer must be carefully coordinated.
If synthetic turf is not desired or cannot be used, many operators rely on jointless safety surfaces, laid in-situ. These safety surfaces reduce the risk of injuries on multifunctional small pitches. Elastic moulded parts in the form of slabs, interlocking pavers, palisades and edgings are used on paths and at the edges of the facilities.

PEGASOFT jointless safety surfaces
As a fall protection system, PEGASOFT gives architects, clients and design engineers the greatest possible freedom to experiment with form and colour and sets no limits for the imagination. Jointless safety surfaces for unique playground and recreation ground designs with the very best fall protection characteristics.
REGUM Safety Tiles
REGUM Safety Tiles are manufactured in a special process and have a profiled underside that was specially developed for fall protection applications. Depending on the thickness of the safety tiles, fall height protection of up to 3.0 m can be achieved in accordance with DIN EN 1177:2018.
REGUM Palisade Edgings
REGUM Palisade Edgings are used as edgings for green areas, sports surfaces and play areas and for supporting slopes. By selecting different colours and installation heights, the REGUM palisade elements can also be used flexibly to create special design features.
REGUM elastic moulded parts for the safe formation of borders and edgings for fall protection and elastic surfaces.
REGUM Interlocking Pavers
REGUM Interlocking Pavers provide an attractive and interesting alternative to elastic tiles. Since the individual pavers interlock securely with each other, no special jointing or bonding is required.
BECODYN dynamic layers are laid immediately underneath the crushed aggregate surface layer of tennis courts, football pitches and athletics tracks. They improve elasticity and provide a graded aggregate transition between the mineral surface and the sub-base layer.
BECOLASTIC shock pads
When constructing football pitches with synthetic turf, users and designers have a wide range of concepts and types of synthetic turf to choose from. In creating a durable overall system with properties as similar as possible to those of natural turf, the use of a suitable shock pads is of vital importance.
BECOTENN mineral sports surface materials
BECOTENN mineral sports surface materials made of reddish volcanic rock are extracted in the Chemnitz area. The material has been tested for product suitability and ecological harmlessness in accordance with DIN 18 035 Part 5. As a pure natural stone product, BECOTENN is free of harmful substances and therefore completely ecologically harmless. BECOTENN is therefore ideally suited for the production of weather-resistant sports field surfaces that meet all requirements in terms of water permeability and shear strength.
BECO sports turf substrate RTS
More than 20 years of production experience in the manufacture of innovative sports field construction materials are a guarantee for quality. The development of our BECO sports turf substrate RTS is continuously monitored by an experienced testing institute. The mixture components are carefully matched to each other and guarantee optimal function.
BECOMIN Lava is a long-standing dynamic layer of gray-brown volcanic natural rock from the Eifel region according to DIN 18035 part 5.
BECOlastic synthetic turf systems
BECOlastic synthetic turf systems, laid on a DIN-compliant layer of bound or unbound sub-base, represent a tried and tested construction method that has been in successful use since 1983. They enable developers to create sports fields to the highest international standards at comparatively low cost.
