Hot Spring Chooses Sporturf

Sometimes we get a chance to get a little bit more information about an install and the motivation behind it. We spoke with our dealer Craig Shonk of Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals about his recent install in Hot Springs to learn more about the project and get some feedback from the customers.

The project was as follows:

  • Product Installed-PowerHouse 46oz
  • Size of Installation-81,000 SF
  • Location-Hot Springs, AR
  • Difficulties/obstacles overcome-15” of rain during project work
  • Why did the turf need to be replaced?-The former field was seven years old and falling apart.

When asked why they chose to go with Sporturf, Hot Springs School District Deputy Superintendent Lloyd D. Jackson said, “After visiting a few schools in our area that had Sporturf (fields), we were convinced that this was the quality of product we wanted to go with.  We also were impressed with the professionalism and commitment of the Midwest team in past projects. “

Furthermore, Jackson told us what they hoped to accomplish, “We wanted to first class field to accompany our World Class approach to educating our students.  Our board decided that they wanted to showcase the best in all areas of our schools–academically and athletically.”

When asked about feedback from the community Jackson finished with this statement, “The community has been very complimentary of the work that has been done on our football field.  It is a source of pride for our district.”

We at Sporturf strive to provide quality service with quality products to each one of our customers, no matter the size of the project. With that in mind, please consider Sporturf for your synthetic turf sports needs.

SCG Fields Installs Multipurpose Soccer and Football Field in North Miami

Recently SCG Fields, LLC worked with North Miami Athletics to install a Sporturf™ multipurpose soccer and football field in Miami, Florida.  Officials from North Miami Athletics worked the SCG and Sporturf team to choose a color for the coaches’ boxes that would very closely match the newly resurfaced track.

The turf system that was selected consisted of Sporturf™ GameChanger paired with an alternative infill called Envirofill from US Greentech and a ProPlay shock pad from Schmitz Foam Products.  The entire project was purchased through our partnership with NJPA.

SCG Fields, LLC is a sports field specialty construction contractor that handles all phases of natural and synthetic turf jobs for professional, collegiate, and high school facilities, from excavation and sub base through installation and maintenance. They are one of the nation’s most trusted sources for superior quality construction of highly engineered natural grass and synthetic turf sports fields.  Sporturf is proud to team with top quality partners across North America for both indoor and outdoor projects. 

Sporturf™ GameChanger is very similar to natural grass; our advanced yarn provides resilience and strength at the same time, while maintaining a brilliant appearance. The fiber has exceptional split resistance compared to conventional turf fibers. This increases the performance in sliding, ball roll, ball bounce and durability making our product one of the best on the market today.

Grants Pass All-Sports Park Soccer Field

Sporturf™ dealer Dale Collett of Synthetic Turf Consulting installed this soccer field for Grants Pass High School in Grants Pass, OR in 2017.  Dale and his crew utilized over 100,000 square feet of PowerHouse synthetic turf to complete this project, including prefabricated lines.

In the United States, Soccer is one of the most rapidly growing sports and around the world it is by far the most popular sport surpassing basketball and football. This is where the need for synthetic turf becomes paramount. Natural grass fields simply cannot withstand the constant play.

Sporturf has the ability to provide a FIFA quality product and our quality standards translate to a winning surface. We bring a complete solution to you and your team through comprehensive evaluation and understanding your needs.

PowerHouse, the turf installed on the field, is one of our most advanced system designs that provides high resilience and increased comfort and safety. The series is made up of some of the most proven and durable fibers in the world. PowerHouse truly is a workhorse and will withstand the rigors of wear and tear for many years.

Sporturf™ Leads the Turf Industry with ArmorLoc™ 3

Sporturf™ is an industry leading synthetic turf company. Our in house, state-of-the-art laboratory provides us the ability to develop products that exceed the requirements of all the individual sport’s governing bodies around the world. With that comes the knowledge and capability to have one of the best backing systems on the market today, in the form of ArmorLoc™ 3L. ArmorLoc™ 3L utilizes a complete knitted system as the foundation to deliver the world’s strongest artificial turf system.

  • Unmatched Strength –
    • Extremely high tear strength. This strength provides the necessary proprieties that reduce the incidence of a rip or a tear in the product. This is due to the knitted layers all working together like the tight weave of a basket or a carpet.
    • Provides a better mechanical bond when utilized with Silverback™ and specialized fiber
  • Restorative –
    • During the manufacturing process we poke thousands of holes in the product. The ArmorLoc™ 3L is designed to self-heal and fill with Silverback™ once the needle is extracted. Compressing around the yarn.
    • Other products leave open gaps because the general construction does not self-close. This reduces the overall strength of their products and reduces tuft bind properties.
  • No absorption –
    • ArmorLoc™ 3L is moisture and rot resistant. Competitors’ products that utilize an absorbent material like embedded fleece tend to absorb moisture and retain odors.
    • Other products that retain moisture present perfect conditions to rot over time.
  • Improved Dimensional Stability
    • Less movement after the installation and over the life of the product. Some folks call this “creep.”
    • This improved stability addresses extreme temperature variations over the life of the product. Temperature variations make competitor’s products move excessively and is a major cause for callbacks and failures.
    • The way ArmorLoc™ 3L is manufactured directly enhances this performance.
    • Improves the installation process and lends to straighter cuts and lines even for sport applications.
  • Manufactured woven and stitched together before fabrication
    • Competitors take two or three backings and physically stitch them together when they tuft the product. This aftermarket fabrication method lessens the overall quality of the product. When competitors do this they are trying to save money by stitching together two lesser backings with the hope of creating a stronger backing.
    • The two backings tend to move at different rates in the fabrication process leading to non-uniform product characteristics.
