How do different parts play different functions for an artificial grass system?
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.
Apart from Global Hockey systems, all artificial turf requires some infill to make the system work. The infill provides weight to help keep the artificial grass surface stable, it helps support the fibre and adds to the sports performance. To date all types of infill have been loose and very porous. At the base of the grass carpet there is a layer of rounded, graded and clean sand. Onto this the performance infill is added to a depth required to provide the desired sports performance. Again, this should be free draining, within the specified quality and dimensions.
The Shock pads
Natural turf has a certain "give" when you walk, run or fall on it. Artificial grass systems try to mimic this when meeting the required sports performance. Sometimes this can be achieved by using just a large depth of performance infill, but most authorities and sports consultants will recommend that a pad is used beneath the surface to ensure the artificial grass pitch plays to its best at all times.
Construction methods vary from country to country. But, all pitches have certain factors in common. They must be able to clear water away from the surface quickly; either vertically or laterally. They must be even and true, without dips or bumps, although the pitch may slope slightly, depending upon the specification. The pitch should also be well compacted to provide a firm base for the shockpad or carpet to be laid upon.
A great carpet can look very cheap if not laid correctly. In sport, a poorly laid surface can also fail the required field tests. It is essential that an experienced team is chosen to lay the pitch, that follows installation instructions and focus on details. Lines are tufted or cut in, joints are either glued or stitched and the infill carefully applied in layers. The final brushing ensures that the infill sits within the system to the required height and is consistent over the entire artificial turf field.
