Worldwide Turf Canada Installs Their First Project in Manitoba

Recently Sporturf™ dealer Worldwide Turf Canada installed their very first project in Manitoba. Steve Halbert and his team installed the project at the Gateway Recreation Centre in Winnipeg, MB. The center consists of two year-round indoor skating rinks, two outdoor hockey rinks, one indoor soccer pitch, four mini soccer fields, three regulation soccer fields, seven ball diamonds, and two outdoor asphalt hockey pens. The Gateway Centre is a true one-stop-shop for the ultimate sports fanatic.

When they decided to update their facility with synthetic turf, they knew that the only company for the job was Sporturf and Worldwide Turf Canada.

Gateway chose Sporturf™ FastGrass AT740 and installed 14,400 square feet of the padded/non-infill turf.

AT740 has all the advantages of previous turf generations and performs even higher in wear and resistance tests. The blend of nylon and polyethylene is an almost perfect 50/50 combination. This gives you the true ball roll of a traditional field, with the softness of the new generation rubber-filled turf. The fact that there is no rubber infill makes maintenance easier and cleaner. These systems can also be portable with added Velcro seams.

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.
