The Sport’s Flooring Group: Sara’s Y

Sara’s Y

Recently one of our Sporturf™ dealers, Brian Cockfield of The Sports Flooring Group, worked on a fairly unique project at a branch of the Greater Charlotte YMCA called Sara’s Y. The project consisted of adding an outdoor functional training area complete with Fast Grass AT740 and a fitness rig for various exercises and strength training.

The crew at the YMCA loves the way the project turned out.  According to Brian, “While I was there they had ribbon cutting and Scott Kruger of the Greater Charlotte YMCA was ecstatic and couldn’t say enough good things about it!”

Brian also stated, “They had a heavy rain recently and it drained like a charm. There is nothing else around like it, feedback has been tremendous!”

The Fast Grass product line is a high performance, non-infilled turf that has all the advantages you’ve come to expect from synthetic turf without the mess of rubber infill. The members of Sara’s Y will be able to enjoy their outdoor training area despite the weather conditions.

Andrews Institute Completion

Sporturf recently completed a turf installation at the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Gulf Breeze, FL.

The Andrews Institute was founded by internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. James Andrews and provides a spectrum of services in order for patients at all levels of performance to quickly and accurately address their orthopaedic needs.

The existing turf had reached the end of its useful life and in an effort to provide their clients with a cutting edge surface for training and rehabilitation, Sporturf was selected to install PowerHouse 45 over the original shock pad. The installation was a huge success and was met with rave reviews from the Andrews team.

PowerHouse is one of our most advanced system designs and provides high resilience and increased comfort, durability and safety. The fiber combination is designed to withstand all the rigors of wear and tear for many years.  Sporturf is honored to be associated with the Andrews Institute!

Andrews Institute Installing Sporturfs PowerHouse

This week we are featuring a project that is currently under construction at the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Gulf Breeze, FL.  The Andrews Institute was founded by internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. James Andrews and provides a spectrum of services in order for patients at all levels of performance to quickly and accurately address their orthopaedic needs.

The pictures will give you a better grasp of what happens when you are replacing turf while trying to salvage the previously used sub-base and shock pad.  At this point all of the turf has been removed, the pad has been inspected and they’re in the process of replacing some of the original wood nailer that had rotted beyond repair.  The crew will begin rolling out brand new Sporturf PowerHouse in the coming days. As the project progresses we will post additional updates.

Sporturf and Field Hockey

Sporturf™ has developed a world class Field Hockey surface, called FIH71, utilizing the latest in yarn technology. When performance matters, Sporturf FIH71 excels because we want the athletes to concentrate on the game and not worry about a slow or bouncing ball. A predictable, fast surface is what FIH71 delivers no matter the weather conditions.

Utilizing a skin friendly polyethylene grass blade, FIH71 is much less abrasive than competitive nylon field hockey products for those instances when athletes come in contact with the surface.    FIH71 is the ultimate Field Hockey surface!

Recently, Sporturf FIH71 was installed at Missouri State’s Betty and Bobby Allison North Stadium with rave reviews. The field even includes retractable water cannons that allow for better gameplay.

Lassiter High School Football and Lutzie 43

A week ago today Lassiter High School dedicated their brand new Sporturf™ field to the memory of Philip Lutzenkirchen. Philip tragically passed away at only 23 years old exactly 1 year to the day from when the project began.

The Lutzie 43 Foundation was established in loving memory of Philip Lutzenkirchen, shortly after his death in 2014.

The objective of the Foundation is to pass on Philip’s many remarkable characteristics in terms of community service, leadership and service to others. The Foundation’s motto is to “Live like Lutz, Love like Lutz, and Learn from Lutz,” reflecting the desire to help others live out the many positive character attributes that Philip displayed, while learning from the circumstances that led to his death.

Tonight the Trojan’s begin their regular season holding strong to the memory of Philip in the hopes that they will continue to remember and honor his values on and off of the field.

Clayton High School becomes a PowerHouse!

At the beginning of the fall season one of our dealers, Craig Shonk of Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals, installed a field in St. Louis, MO at Clayton High School. The Clayton High school Greyhounds chose to install the workhorse of the Sporturf product line; PowerHouse. According to Lee Laskowski, “The multi-color blend gave the turf a more natural look, fiber density and price point finally made our decision.” Lee went on to say, “We also believe that this field will last longer and be more durable than some of the others because of the fiber.”

Silverback™ Pure Strength For Athletes

Silverback™ is our unique recipe for our specialty Polyurethane backing system.

Silverback™ saturates the primary backing of the synthetic turf and effectively locks the grass blades in place. While most polyurethane backings are a simple coating over the primary backing, Silverback™ actually penetrates into the stitch, surrounding every tuft and interlocking the grass blades into the primary backing. This process leaves you with a superior tuft lock well above the industry standard and ideal for any sports application.

Worldwide Turf Canada: Lewis-McChord Air Force Base

If you have been monitoring our posts you’ve seen updates on the Worldwide Turf Canada project at Lewis-McChord Air Force Base.

We have documented this project from the first truck load of stone to the manufacturing of the turf through the rolling and seaming of the carpet. The project is now complete and the turf has been in use for a few weeks now. The difference from start to finish is striking and Sporturf™ was thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful project that will benefit the men and women of our armed forces and their families.

Sporturf™ worked closely with Worldwide and Lewis-McChord in order to custom design high performance turf systems that surpassed the requirements for the multipurpose, baseball and softball fields.  For the multipurpose fields, a monofilament system was created to provide long term ball roll control and natural aesthetics and a high durability slit film was chosen for the baseball and softball fields.

Our fields provide a consistent surface that you can count on to deliver the best experience available on the market today. The turf we manufacture utilizes the latest technology and is made of the highest quality products obtainable.

Sporturf™ offers consultation at our factory to help you determine what surface makes the most sense for you and your team. We are continuously improving on technologies and take the process of education very serious. Let us be part of your process today.
