Rooftop installations of MUGA-fields in central London allow learners to play or perform sports outdoors without the school having to maintain a sports facility.
London is one of the world’s most expensive cities to live in, hence it is no surprise that inner-city schools can no longer afford to maintain sports facilities. As the square metre prices go for as much as 20,000 GBP, it is no wonder that most schools are being forced to keep a small footprint.
PE on the roof
With the help of RSI Turf Panels, multi-game sports facilities have been installed on the roofs of schools. RSI Turf Panels facilitate the installation of any artificial grass field on any kind of surface, as all the panels need is a flat surface. The light-weight panels don’t require any groundworks. RSI Turf Panels deliver the required shock absorption and impact attenuation. They also facilitate the lateral drainage of water.
Thanks to the combined drainage and performance capabilities of the panels, there was no need to strengthen the roof structure or make other infrastructural improvements.
