San Diego State University Chooses Sporturf

Designer: David DiGeronimo with DMA Sports Group

Architect: Swinerton

Contractor: AFE Sports

Product: FL510T-95

Note: a 95 oz 1 3/4” pile slit film with a nylon thatch.

Infill: Zeofill

Field: Multi-use-soccer, lacrosse, and rugby

When asked about the install David DiGeronimo of DMA Sports Group had this to say, “Sporturf supplied the Los Angeles Recreation and Parks specification flawlessly for the SDSU Project. Sporturf was selected based on its reputation as a leader in manufacturing turf.  Key points taken away in working with the SportsTurf team were it was easy, great communication and open to the specification that the Owner wanted produced, which is not easy.  Our firm (DMA) visited the plant and reviewed the manufacturing process, which exceed all expectations with the cleanliness, quality control process and worker safety utilized in the manufacturing plant. The project was built in conjunction with AFE Sports, Brock Pad YSR and Zeolite Infill.  The field has played extremely well since August and with 95 oz of yarn it’s holding up extremely well to the high usage of the college community.  Thank you Sporturf team on a well produced product and openness to fit our clients needs with no hassle’s!”

SDSU’s field is a multipurpose field home to multiple sports including soccer, lacrosse and rugby. The Aztec Recreation department provides high quality programs, services and facilities that inspire active, healthy living and enhance the SDSU experience which is one of the main reasons they chose Sporturf. The Recreation Field features state-of-the art turf and lighting systems. The new turf technology provides lowered field temperatures and maximum shock reduction for participants. This Green built space also utilizes highly focused LED lighting that minimizes shadows and power consumption. Located north of SDSU Parking Structure 12, the Recreation Field is available daily for drop-in play and also hosts recreational activities, including Aztec Recreation Group Fitness classes, ENS Credit classes, Intramural Sports and Sport Clubs.

About Swinerton

Swinerton traces its roots back to 1888, when a young Swedish immigrant formed a brick masonry and contracting business in Los Angeles to serve the growing city in its post–Gold Rush building boom.

Since our earliest days building along the Western frontier, the company has survived and thrived through two world wars, the Great Depression and Recession, dynamic cultural movements, and natural disasters. Since Swinerton’s earliest days, our exceptional craftsmanship has helped us create celebrated landmark projects throughout the West and beyond.

The company now has over 3,500 employees from coast to coast, and along the way we’ve helped build communities from the peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the Hawaiian Islands, from the Gulf of Alaska to the jungles of Colombia. The company still operates under California contractor’s license number 92—the one it obtained in 1927 when the state first began issuing licenses. Many Swinerton-built structures now claim a spot on the National Register of Historic Places and other architectural preservation lists.

Trimming Selvedge from Foam Backed Product

When trimming the selvedge on a foam backed product you will need some tools to help you complete this.  You will need a:

  • carpet knife or slide knife.
  • replaceable blades.
  • T-shaped Hex key (3/32” or 6 mm)

Unroll the foam backed synthetic turf face up.  Starting at the edge of the roll at the selvedge you will find the stitch rows.  From the selvedge, count in 2 stitch rows.  Starting at the edge of the roll, take your T-shaped hex key and place it between the second and the third stitch row.  Start pushing the hex key through the length of the stitch roll so that it separates the fibers of the second and third tuft row.  You may need to do this several times before you get a good separation of the tuft rows.

After the tuft rows have been separated you will see a definitive line. Take your carpet knife with a new blade and start cutting between the 2nd and 3rd tufted rows.  It is important that you try and maintain a straight cut along these separated tuft rows.  Keep your replaceable blades handy and keep a sharp one in your knife. This will help you maintain a straight cut. Remember to always dispose of used blades in an appropriate container.

Do You Know About G-Max?

G-Max is important to consider when installing an athletic surface for athletes.

A field’s level of shock absorbency is tested by using a unit of measurement called the g-max, where one “g” represents a single unit of gravity. The peak acceleration reached upon impact of two objects, such a football player and the synthetic turf surface, is the maximum number of g’s a field is able to absorb.

A field with a higher g-max level loses its ability to absorb the force — and places more impact on the athlete during a collision, while a surface with a lower g-max absorbs more force, lessening the impact to the athlete. Using ASTM F1936 test method, g-max readings shall not exceed 200 at each test point. With proper maintenance, a synthetic turf field should have a g-max of well below 200. The g-max guideline in the STC’s Guidelines for Synthetic Turf Performance is “below 165” for the life of the synthetic turf field.
