POWERgrass hybrid grass is an innovative system that combines the advantages of natural grass and the resistance of synthetic turf to offer a professional and safe pitch, resistant, durable, with reduced maintenance thus is cost effective and accessible to ordinary people.
Reach perfect "symbiosis" with regenerative agriculture. POWERgrass hybrid grass lifespan is estimated over 20 years if natural grass is maintained regularly thus protecting also the synthetic fibres from UV-rays.
Traction, Stability and Softness of the playing surface, are the most important prerogatives to play safely!
Resistant for many hours of play and durable over 20 years, with simple maintenance will make the job of grounds managers easier and will generate savings to investors and communities, providing healthier environment and occupation.
Football surfaces require years of research & development and the experience gained shows that many innovations are not always risolutive.
Over the past 25 years, several hybrid systems have been designed and proposed to reinforce natural grass because they offer greater stability. No doubt the increased stability is appreciated by the player to prevent dangerous divots formation but, when the play gets intensive most hybrid systems tend to highlight their limitations. Some with the backing partially closed offer poor root ventilation so the natural grass perishes prematurely compared to a natural grass pitch. Others with deeply planted fibres harden quickly and limit root penetration when the resistance of the sandy substrate exceeds 1500 kPa. In both cases, to solve the problem of aeration and hardness of the field, frequent deep tine aerations are performed, which increases the cost of maintenance but also disturbs the root activity in the growing substrate.
The falls and slide tackles of athletes are part of the regular game activities. If the surface is not in ideal conditions the fear of falling prevents players best performance. On synthetic turf we observe a different game because the ball bounce too fast and players loose easily ball control and tend to pass the ball instead of dribbling. Most of the players feel spine pain when they play on synthetic turf as a result of the return of the mechanical energy to the foot pressure because the surface is hard. Powergrass hybrid grass provides a soft surface with natural chock absorption, natural ball bounce and great traction to reduce the risks of falls.
Athletes put less strain on their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) while making a cut on a natural grass surface while wearing a cleat. This is the conclusion from a study that tested the strain placed on the ACL of four different shoe-surface interactions: Astroturf/turf shoe, modern playing turf/turf shoe, modern turf/cleat, and natural grass/cleat.
