TenCate Sine® woven shock and drain pad
Jump, push off, make a sliding tackle and score. The technical playing qualities of artificial grass are determined by the composition of and the materials used in the entire system. GreenFields is a specialist in this area. Working closely with the TenCate group of materials technology companies, GreenFields designs and supplies integrated artificial grass systems.
By combining numerous technological innovations in one artificial grass system that consists of multiple integrated layers, sports associations and clubs can provide their top talents and enthusiastic amateurs with a safe, durable and affordable playing surface.
GreenFields – the choice of champions.
TenCate has designed an innovative new product, called TenCate Sine®, which provides shock absorption and drainage for high-quality artificial grass pitches. TenCate Sine™ is a sturdy module that is a few centimetres deep.
It has an open weave structure and dozens of foam rings per square metre, which cushion and absorb the shocks from jumping, pushing off and making sliding tackles on the pitch. The underlay has optimal technical playing properties. It is exceptionally strong and stable, and helps prevent injuries. It also has sufficient “give”, which optimises the energy rebound when playing sports. The TenCate Sine® shock pad reduces the surface wear on the pitch and extends the life span of the integrated artificial grass system.
The open structure of the firm underlay helps optimise the vertical and horizontal drainage of rainwater and sprinkler water, whilst ensuring effective evaporation from the subsurface. TenCate Sine® enables GreenFields to create high-quality playing surfaces.

Durable system construction
The technical playing properties and characteristics of artificial grass benefit from the optimal alignment and maximum integration of the different modules in the total system. In combination with TenCate Accorder®, a shallower, but more stable subsurface can be created
Recyclable top layer
GreenFields® MX artificial grass was especially developed for football and it makes the top layer of the pitch completely recyclable. TenCate’s advanced weaving technique keeps the tufts of artificial grass upright so they support the ball and easily allow players to get their feet underneath it.
Ard van PeppenProfessional Soccer Player / Roda JC
Always being able to train on artificial grass in our own stadium is a huge advantage. You get a feeling for the playability. Having the first team based in the stadium now instead of using a separate training ground is also good for the stadium’s dynamics.
Tom van HyfteProfessional Soccer Player / Roda JC
I never used to be in favour of artificial grass, but I have now been playing on it at Roda JC for two years and I've got used to it. We play on a great pitch. It's even better when it has been watered because it plays even faster.
Sander FischerTeam Captain / SBV Excelsior
I would rather play on a good artificial grass pitch, than on poor-quality natural grass. The game is nice and fast on our artificial grass because you don't have any clumps and the pitch is always flat.
Luigi BruinsProfessional Soccer Player / SBV Excelsior
I like attacking football and the best way to play it is on a fast pitch. The artificial grass pitch in Woudestein Stadium is fast, which really suits us.
Daryl van MieghemProfessional Soccer Player / SBV Excelsior
Our artificial grass pitch stays good whatever the weather. Our pitch is also fast - especially when it's wet - and that benefits our attacking style of play.
Bram van PolenProfessional Soccer Player / PEC Zwolle
The GreenFields pitch in our stadium has excellent playability. It is fast, which is fantastic for passing and completing moves. Everyone in the squad also thinks it's a good and reliable surface for playing and training on.
Sander RozemaProfessional Soccer Player / FC Emmen
You can still play football in Emmen even when there's snow on the ground.
Jordy van DeelenProfessional Soccer Player / FC Emmen
It's wonderful to be allowed to train on this pitch every day. It means we spend all our time in the stadium instead of at the training ground.
Frank OlijveProfessional Soccer Player / FC Emmen
I think it's fantastic that our youth team can now train and play in the stadium.
Illias Bel HassaniProfessional Soccer Player / Heracles Almelo
I think artificial grass is ideal. I love playing on it! I can use my technical skills and, when I shoot, it gives the ball a lot of speed.
Ramon ZomerProfessional Soccer Player / Heracles Almelo
For me as a defender, it took some getting used to at first, but I really enjoy playing on it now. The artificial grass pitch has also improved our style of play.
Tim BreukersProfessional Soccer Player / Heracles Almelo
The quality of the artificial grass pitch is good. Being able to play and train in practically any weather is fantastic.
