Press Releasein Synthetics

Kevin King   522Leading UK surfacing specialist Notts Sport has recruited a new Sales Manager to roll out its range of sports and play solutions across Scotland.

Sales Manager Kevin King will be responsible for delivering Notts Sport artificial turf surfacing systems throughout the country, having built up a sound knowledge of how well it performs while working at Glasgow City Council.

Kevin spent some 30 years at the local authority, and as a Landscape Designer he developed a wealth of experience in selecting successful sports and play landscapes that appeal to users - and afford value for money for facility providers.

After a successful trial of Notts Sports' artificial turf surfacing systems more than a decade ago, Glasgow City Council selected the company as a preferred provider of surfaces for its playgrounds and multi-sport facilities, and to date more than 250 Notts Sport installations have been carried out in the city.

Kevin explains: "During my early days working in landscape design for the council, I was tackling the issues of vandalism and costly wear and tear to our existing recreational surfaces, but these were much reduced when we started using Notts Sport systems.

"In terms of time scales, delivery of products and after care, Glasgow City Council was consistently impressed by Notts Sport's service levels, and the value its products provide when compared with alternative surfacing options.

"Having overseen the scope and success of ChildsPlay and Notts Sport's multi-sport systems in Glasgow, I'm confident that these solutions are the right choice for sports and play providers working across our cities, Highlands and islands."

Notts Sport's ChildsPlay systems are designed to make the installation of playgrounds that offer critical fall height protection of up to 3m quicker and more cost-effective. Meanwhile, its multi-sports surfaces have been developed to offer excellent performance characteristics for a wide range of activities in one recreation area, including football, basketball and tennis.

Notts Sport acts as a facilitator for sports and play projects, providing its professional design and advisory service at no additional cost to the supply of the synthetic components. This unique approach minimises the risk of wasting money on a project that doesn't come to fruition, and makes specialist expertise available without expensive development fees.

VHAF NottsSward synthetic turf, a key component of ChildsPlay and Multi-Use Games Area systems designed by Notts Sport, is available in a palette of 15 different colours to mark out games, shapes and patterns for inspirational play.

Plus, this durable, vandalism-resistant surface can be laid over concrete, Macadam - or over a stone base laid over grass - and covers irregular mounds or slopes as easily as flat ground.
