Synthetic Cricket Pitch

Surpassing Expectations

S&C Slatter is a business that has been built on trust, quality and exceptional service.

Synthetic Cricket Pitch

The company prides itself on offering the right synthetic cricket pitch for the right environment, supported by local service. However we don’t just offer our clients the best products: we strive to offer a first class service.

Our ability to deliver any sized facility completely in-house, removing the need to sub-contract out any stage of the construction process, ensures that quality and service is never compromised. Many of our site staff have been installing synthetic cricket pitch facilities since the early nineties and are amongst the most experienced in the entire industry.

This considerable in-house capability also ensures that we are able to accommodate the most demanding of schedules to ensure that facilities are ready when they are required.

Our approach to delivering your project, from a simple surface maintenance to a new build practice area, is the same – customer service, focussed on partnership and co-operation.

In order to maximise the control of quality materials and workmanship on our synthetic cricket pitch construction sites S&C Slatter has invested heavily into construction specific machinery and plant, and a workforce CITB and CSCS trained and competent in operating safely and efficiently.

The document is in four sections: Performance Requirements, Construction Requirements, Material Requirements and Identification tests
