Polytan LigaTurf Legend Pro at the Colegio Arenales Carabanchel, Madrid
High-performance product for bilingual educational institution
Colegio Arenales is a bilingual school in the Carabanchel district in the centre of Madrid. It not only provides its students with high-level academic education in Spanish and English, but actively promotes values such as respect, responsibility and loyalty, for example. These educational aspirations seek to develop individuals as comprehensively as possible, encompassing all their abilities – from social skills through to intellectual and artistic abilities. The school is particularly good at closely coordinating students’ education with their families. Regular cultural weeks in England and Ireland are part of the school programme.
To accommodate the school’s growth over the last 10 years, Colegio Arenales is currently being renovated and extended with new buildings. At the very beginning of the work, we laid the school’s multifunctional pitch with Polytan LigaTurf Legend Pro, our high-performance product for elite sporting performance under extreme wear. Thanks to the multi-shape cross-section of the filaments, our LigaTurf Legend Pro football turf guarantees optimum stability. The specially designed cross-section also achieves ball-rolling and playing characteristics that are similar to those experienced on natural grass.
From a purely visual point of view, the larger blade width ensures compact density and – together with the BiColour design – a constantly fresh and natural look to the pitch. The high wear resistance of the filaments has been proven in our extensive laboratory tests and, thanks to the longevity of our products, ensures the appropriate levels of sustainability that are increasingly in demand. Overall, LigaTurf Legend Pro offers perfect sporting performance, which is also proven by the synthetic turf being certified according to various international standards. In Madrid, coloured lines have been incorporated so that the pitch can be used as one large pitch, but it can also be divided into two mini-pitches.
Another special feature at Colegio Arenales is the infill, which consists of our innovative Ecolastene granules – this recycled and recyclable PE polymer has a particle size of over 5 millimetres.
