PowerGrass

The POWERgrass® hybrid grass is an innovative project that combines the advantages of natural grass and the resistance of synthetic turf to offer a professional pitch, resistant, durable, with reduced maintenance, cost effective that is accessible to ordinary people.

The interview of Sean Goodwin and the one of Graham Longdin confirm the validity of POWERgrass!

Play better and safer!

Play better and safer

Traction, Stability and Softness of the playing surface, are the most important prerogatives.

POWERgrass hybrid grass system consists in:

A. a synthetic turf with fibres height 60 mm, disposed in 7350 tufts ≈ 88200 monofilaments per sqm. The fibres tufts are bound on the backing with tearing resistance ≥30 N by the technology LC-HM without obstructing the permeability of the backing. The synthetic turf is pliable to 180° on each intersection between the knots to remain elastic to the players pressure. The backing and the seams of the synthetic turf must be robust with resistance ≥500 N, to permit easy installation and duration.

  • The fibres are made of two shapes and colours, with 6 strong and soft filaments mono-extruded, of which three light green with section of 325 microns and width of 1.35 mm that give a greater aesthetic value and three dark green with section of 440 microns that increase the wear-resistant. The filaments resilience of each type is ≥1.50 cN and ≥3.00 cN respectively (calculated at 300 cycles with the Favimat R Textechno method).
  • The backing comprises a imputrescible mesh with high porosity for about 320.000 voids/sqm with irregular 3D shapes to permit air circulation and roots penetration and to limit the sand migration. The mesh is ladder-proof to maintain its structure after multiply needle-tining to aerate the root zone below. It comprises also a thin geotextile providing an insulating effect to mitigate heat and frost stress.

B. a substrate based on silica sand mixed, in volume 20-25%, with ZOEsand, a mineral-organic soil conditioner. After the synthetic turf rolls are stitched, the synthetic turf is filled and raked with cork for about 7 mm and then is filled and raked gradually with the same mix of before (sand+ZOEsand), until the formation of an infill layer of 35 mm, thus to provide the best interaction of the athlete's stud with the surface.
