Artificial Football Turf
Sports Turf Systems
Artificial football turf systems have not changed considerably in recent years. Even the “new generation” of rubber infill football products were invented more than 20 years ago. Products were sold based on for example fibre thickness (microns), fibre weight (Dtex) and pile height (mm); terms such as monofilament versus a slit film, fibrillating yarn, or a polyethylene fibre rivalling a nylon fibre. Today, the artificial turf market remains dominated by carpet manufacturers and fibre suppliers who are trying to sell a football turf system based on a single fact such as fibre thickness or pile height.
Greenfields is able to offer an unequalled range of football turf systems together with exclusive partnerships with experienced suppliers and manufacturers, patents and trademarks. From economic products if there are budget restrictions up to turnkey engineered systems whereby every component of the system is known, tested and can be reproduced. GreenFields produce sports turf systems which meet the requirements that football players care about.
Artificial Football Pitch
Natural football grass cannot be sustained as a high quality football surface for more than 300 hours of play per year. When a football pitch is used on a daily basis, the natural football grass is subjected to overuse which can result in bald patches and an inconsistent surface. Artificial football turf is the solution for increasing the hours of play with no compromise of the pitch quality. With GreenFields sports turf, your soccer team can enjoy a full season of lush grass on a new artificial football pitch.
Five Good Reasons to Choose Artificial Turf for Football
1. Consistent playability
Unlike natural football grass fields, artificial football pitches can be played on all year round as they are not as susceptible to weather damage as natural grass pitches. They absorb massive amounts of water without flooding, are not damaged by frost or intense sun, and will not freeze so your surface always remains in prime match condition. The result? Summer or winter, rain or snow your teams can practice and play in ideal conditions with no bald patches, mud, standing water, die-back, dust or loose divots. Your training and fixture schedule remains on schedule all year round.
Artificial turf pitches can be played on more frequently and for longer. A natural grass pitch begins to deteriorate after about 250 hours play per season, while artificial turf can be played on 24 hours a day 7 days a week – dependent on good regular maintenance.
GreenFields artificial pitches provide a versatile, multi-purpose solution for all your football requirements. One artificial pitch has the capacity of at least 3 natural football grass pitches as it can be used for the training and playing requirements of teams at all levels – from mini-league and juniors to premiership teams football. With the right precautions your GreenFields pitch can be used to host other events, such as concerts and public meetings giving you the opportunity to enhance stadium revenue, while still having a first class playing surface at your disposal.
4. Low maintenance, low cost
Maintaining a natural grass pitch is labour intensive and requires significant investment of time, effort and capital. While regular maintenance is important to preserve the life of a quality artificial sports turf such as GreenFields, it is a lot easier and more affordable over the long term GreenFields will also create a customised cleaning and maintenance plan for your needs, train your ground staff in maintenance procedures or implement the maintenance programme we develop on a once off or contractual basis.
5. Cost effective
While the development and installation capital investment for a artificial football turf system are higher than those of a natural grass pitch, this is more than offset by drastically reduced future capital cost and annualised operating costs. You NEED less equipment and less manpower, you PAY less fuel and material costs. You SAVE on maintenance costs- and reduced stadium upkeep costs can actually halve the cost per use of your pitch in comparison to a natural turf pitch.
In addition, your field is playable the whole year round, you will have fewer weather-affected or cancelled fixtures and can generate revenue by hosting other events. Enhanced playability = enhanced profits.
