Working to IRB and IRFU standards, the artificial rugby pitch surface is laid to meet a 1.3 metres critical fall height.

The IRB standards for ‘shock pad’ as set out here in there regulation 22 are strictly enforced and observed by McSweeney’s Construction team:

Many Rugby Clubs and schools are considering investing in synthetic rugby pitch facilities for many reasons. Principally, training pitches cut up due to overuse in the winter months, and this can affect team performance. Serious clubs and coaches demand consistency from teams and players, and teams and players need consistent training facilities.
