In 2015 we added a second ECB approved non turf pitch system design to the range – the ‘tp5t’. Built using the same trusted techniques and base materials as ‘tp365’, the ‘tp5t’ system has been designed to sit alongside our established ‘tp365’ brand to provide clients with a premium quality tufted synthetic surface solution. ‘tp5t’ also comprises a dynamic unbound aggregate base and ‘tp2’ shock-pad but incorporates a bespoke quality tufted playing surface, delivering a balanced system for practice and recreational use.
Carrying the same performance guarantees and warranties as the ‘tp365’, the dynamic base of the ‘tp5t’ system has excellent drainage, performance characteristics and with minimal maintenance. Further enhancements in 2019 has led to the ECB approved ‘tp5t NPC’ system which features our new ‘Natural Pitch Colour’ playing surface carpets. The ‘tp5t’ system replaces ‘tp365’s Wilton Woven carpet with a tufted carpet manufactured using the same high quality yarn.
Due to the streamlined manufacturing process, the ‘tp5t’ tufted component comes in more affordable than ‘tp365’ woven. This tufted carpet is laid on the same exacting base construction as ‘tp365’. We believe this to be the ultimate specification for an unbound base design, so have simply changed the playing surface carpet to compete with systems offering more price-sensitive options; offering a great solution on a budget, or where the more expensive woven option is not required.
