To the inexperienced eye it probably does not look like it takes very much to install synthetic turf. We are here to tell you that is simply not true. Take a look at the project progression and we think you will be amazed at the amount of work that goes into a field.

As you can clearly see, quite a few steps go into making a field correctly. A top quality field takes work and when done properly, the end results cannot be beat!

Worldwide Turf Canada Begins Preparations at McChord Air Force Base

The beginning stages of the installation process are underway at McChord Air Force Base. Steve Halbert and the team at Worldwide Turf (Canada) Inc. have begun building the drainage layer, spreading the stone and creating the aggregate base that is required under the fields. Friday they will be laying the center line panel on the first field.

The aggregate drainage base is the first and arguably the most important step in the installation process. The turf will lay directly on the compacted aggregate base and allow water permeability, which is a great advantage synthetic turf has over natural grass…No rainouts, EVER!

Once the compacted aggregate base is completed, the installation of the turf will begin! Stay tuned for updates on this exciting project for Sporturf™ and Worldwide Turf (Canada) Inc.

Silverback™ Quiet Strength Made to Last for McChord Air Force Base

The McChord Air Force Base chose turf that was built to withstand the strength of the air Force, they chose a turf made to last. When they decided to use Sporturf™, they chose a company whose values mirror their own. Sporturf™ is the epitome of integrity, service and quality; easily demonstrated by our superior Silverback™ technology.

Silverback™ is the result of our specialty Polyurethane backing recipe. Silverback™ coating saturates the primary backing of the synthetic turf and effectively locks the turf blades in place. While most polyurethane backings are a coating simply scraped over the primary backing, Silverback™ actually penetrates into the tuft, surrounding every stitch locking the fibers into the primary backing. This process produces tuft lock well above the industry standard.

The components that make up Silverback™ are simple. It is, at its core, a heat activated polyurethane with zero vegetable based polyols, forming the best polyurethane backing available in today’s market. When you have Silverback™ as your backing you know you have the quiet strength required by today’s consumers, regardless of the application.
