The first innovative hybrid turf system for high-performance and safe sports pitches because traction, stability and softness of the playing surface are characteristics players seek and only POWERgrass offers them 365 days a year.
POWERgrass combines the advantages of natural grass with the resistance of synthetic grass to offer a reinforced natural grass pitch for up to 30 hours a week.
POWERgrass has a positive environmental impact because it follows the teachings of regenerative agriculture which contributes to lower temperatures, carbon sequestration and air purification. Anchoring the natural grass to the synthetic turf preserves the soil from erosion and prevents damage from flooding.
The life cycle of the system is estimated at more than 20 years when combined with regular maintenance of the natural grass because it protects the synthetic fibres from UV radiation and achieves a perfect symbiosis of natural and synthetic grass.
The system requires reduced maintenance because it provides the ideal habitat for growing natural grass, which is more resistant to intensive trampling and therefore generates savings of more than 30% over its life cycle compared to other sports surfaces.
POWERgrass will never let you down because it is always playable, even when natural grass is missing for any reason.
In our latest realisation for the upgrading of the 'Riviera delle Palme' stadium in San Benedetto del Tronto, we outdid ourselves by handing over the pitch for play 17 days after seeding. After more than 40 matches, training sessions and finishing touches, the pitch has survived even a harsh and rainy winter without a single divot, and President Serafino's compliments have arrived with good reason.
POWERgrass hybrid grass offers the ideal solution for players, investors and groundsmen of the sport fields.
POWERgrass hybrid grass offers the benefits of natural grass with low maintenance costs because the system's hybrid carpet protects the plants from intensive traffic. The maintenance method of regenerative agriculture creates a symbiotic ecosystem between vegetation and micro-organisms. The natural grass grows vigorously and contributes to temperature reduction, sequesters carbon and produces oxygen, offering a positive environmental impact. The hybrid pitch offers many more hours of play than any other system and limits the risks of extraordinary maintenance.
Sunlight (radiation) and heat are the main factors leading to the degradation of polymers. Generally, the damaging radiation is the UV component (290-300 nm). Absorption of UV light causes the breakage of C-H and C-C bonds, formation of free radicals resulting in a decrease in the molecular weight of the polymer, absorption of oxygen and the appearance of new chemical groups (staining, hydrophilicity). In fluoropolymers, the C-F bond is more stable and does not break down under UV light. Therefore, the higher the fluorine content of the polymer, the better its outdoor stability. However, in recent decades health concerns about fluorochemicals have forced the industry to eliminate them from use. The huge fine imposed by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) on Dupond in 2005 is impressive.
In the hybrid turf used in the POWERgrass system there are no fluorochemicals, the fibres are protected by the natural grass and, for this reason, a long service life of more than 20 years is expected. As long as the natural grass is properly maintained, the synthetic fibres are not exposed to the sun and therefore do not age due to photo-oxidation by the sun's UV rays.
"The POWERgrass hybrid system simplifies maintenance, reduces water consumption, the risk of weather damage and the cost of extraordinary operations".

“Public green areas" is that part of the territory taken away from construction to mitigate the impact of overbuilding on the environment. Natural grass playing fields are part of public green areas and their transformation into synthetic grass over the last two decades has changed the actual reorganization of public green areas in the territory also from an environmental point of view. The problem is even greater in large municipalities and metropolitan cities where playing fields converted to artificial turf take away large areas of natural green between buildings.
