Webb City Chooses Midwest Synthetic Turf and Sporturf

Recently Midwest Synthetic Turf was contracted to install a new football field for Webb City high school after the existing turf reached the end of its useful life. The existing drainage base was not draining correctly so the necessary repairs were added as part of the project.  School officials were very interested in pad underlayment as a way to improve GMax performance so Craig Shonk and his team installed a Brock pad under the field.

Midwest Synthetic Turf was selected by the turf Committee based on their expertise and reputation as ASBA Certified Field Builders.  MWSTP once again teamed with Byrne and Jones to complete the base work.  School officials had a lot of confidence in this team given the amount of work they have completed in the area over the last few years.

PowerHouse 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 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.

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.”
