SIS Hybrid State of the Art Stitched Surface
Combination of Natural and Artificial Surfaces

The playing surface at Fairwood training academy was constructed using a SIS stitched hybrid system utilising polyethylene monofilament dual tone colour filament and natural grass combination. The surface works were constructed on a new rootzone, sand and sacrificial and grit stone base.

Together with an 8-year warranty, SIS Grass and South Wales Sports Grounds supplied a world class state of the art surface, irrigation and drainage system as well as some ancillary fencing, pathway and edge constructions.  South Wales Sports Grounds were responsible for all aspects of the construction build‐up with SIS Pitches completing the final stitching of the hybrid surface.

“In the summer of 2017 South Wales Sports Grounds together with SIS grass constructed 3 new, state of the art hybrid pitch at our first team training facilities at Fairwood. The work was completed to a very high standard and within the tight time frame.  Site safety was ably considered and SWSG managed aspects of the build and aftercare well. The team worked with politeness and professionalism throughout and contributed to a World class end product.

We’ve used SWSG for all our renovations and new build projects over the last four years and I would thoroughly recommend their services for any future endeavours”.
