The range of artificial turf systems is particularly wide. Many clubs, cities and municipalities rely on artificial turf because it can be used in almost any weather and is easy to maintain. It consists of an elastic base layer, the turf carpet and the infill. This filling of the turf carpet may consist of sand, a sand/cork mixture or a sand/granulate mixture. Unfilled artificial turf systems are also increasingly common in football. The customer can choose freely.
The right synthetic turf for everyone
Whether it’s football, rugby, American football or hockey, Polytan synthetic turf systems have become established in modern ball sports and have been successfully used in stadiums, tennis centres and clubs for many years. With our wide range of products, we offer perfect solutions with optimum play properties for every demand and every budget – from multi-purpose pitches for amateur clubs through to premier league stadiums.
THE artificial TURF SYSTEM
The Polytan Anti-Compaction System (ACS) is a precisely defined combination of a artificial turf surface, infill granules and an elastic layer. The respective combination significantly influences desired playing properties as well as the durability and longevity of the system.
OUR SYNTHETIC TURF PRODUCTS
Synthetic turf systems in the LigaTurf product range all feature smooth filaments and are filled with sand and granules. They are pleasantly soft and provide a natural experience for the players with optimum rolling and rebound properties for football, rugby and American football, even for professional teams. LigaTurf synthetic turf systems have been awarded the relevant certificates by international sports federations such as FIFA and World Rugby.
The global Polytan Group will bundle its leading hockey products under the Poligras brand name and will become a licensed Preferred Supplier of the International Hockey Federation (FIH). The dense and even surface of the unfilled Polytan full artificial turf systems allows for fast and precise play. Depending on the fill height, as a sand-filled variant Poligras is suitable for hockey, tennis and multi-sport facilities.
Polytan artificial turf systems with textured filaments are particularly suitable for public or municipal sports facilities. They allow intensive use and deliver a high level of availability with reduced maintenance costs. The texturised structure efficiently holds sand and infill in place and ensures constant volume. Depending on the product, texturised turfs are suitable for football, hockey or tennis and have been awarded the relevant certificates by international sports federations, e.g. FIFA or the International Tennis Federation (ITF).
THE RIGHT INFILL
Cork is a natural, renewable material that is also suited to use as infill for synthetic turf pitches. It boasts good cushioning properties and is applied over a layer of sand. What’s more, the odourless material obtained from the bark of cork oak and is completely biodegradable.
Infill made of shredded olive pits is a sustainable alternative to rubber granules. This infill also meets the requirements of the circular economy and, like cork and BrockFILL, is compostable.
Synthetic turf filled with BrockFILL feels like natural turf and falls within the optimal traction range. The infill material meets the requirements of the FIFA quality programme for synthetic turf systems, as well as those of World Rugby.
You find it on almost every synthetic turf pitch: the mineral filling material sand, or specifically quartz sand. The quartz sand we use and that is monitored according to EN 15330-1 features a defined quality and particle size.
