How does the artificial grass surface play different functions?
Artificial grass can be applied for sports and leisure purposes.
Sports grass can be used in sports pitches such as football fields, tennis courts, hockey fields, baseball fields, cricket pitches, rugby fields, basketball courts, badminton courts, etc.
Leisure grass is widely used for interior decoration, yard landscape and building greening, etc.
An artificial grass turf surface varies depending upon what sport is played on it. For a better sports performance the artificial grass surface has to have plenty of visible fiber and be tested to the appropriate standards. For Football, Rugby, GAA, American Football and Australian Rules, this means using a long pile carpet, made using resilient, durable and skin friendly polyethylene yarns.
In a synthetic turf sport's field the surface density is important to ensure the correct ball roll, foot to surface interaction and aesthetic appearance. There should always be enough fiber coverage over the infill material within the surface to keep the surface green and to reduce any infill splash. A denser surface is proven to last longer and play better than a more open system.
Surface Pile Height:
The height of the fiber is determined by the sports to be played on it. For hockey, the pile height is low, 13-18mm, as the ball needs a fast roll on top of the surface. For football the height is increased to between 40-60mm, as the ball rolls in the top of the fiber and is expected to slow down within a certain distance. For rugby, the minimum height is 60mm, to allow for player impact. With longer pile heights, the fiber should be 15-20mm above the infill for optimum play.
