Tufted vs Woven: which is best?

There are two main types of artificial surface you can choose from – tufted or woven – and there’s a significant difference between the two.

Woven surfaces have been around for many years and while they are perfectly acceptable, they’re not necessarily the best choice if you’re looking for long-lasting reliability.

The latest high-calibre tufted surfaces, on the other hand, have been proven to offer enhanced durability, and independent analysis based on the tried-and-trusted British Standard test used by the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) in its TS6 Performance Standard proves that they can be nearly twice as hard-wearing as their woven equivalents.
