GrassMaster is a 100% natural grass pitch which is reinforced by 20 million polypropylene (PP) fibres. The PP fibres are injected by computer-controlled machines, 18 deep and 2 cm above the surface, in a grid of +/- 2 x 2 cm. The ingenuity of this pioneering system is to be found both below and above the surface: the natural grass roots entwine with the fibres and grow deeper and wider, building a stronger and healthier rootzone. The PP fibres above the surface ensure an always even and stable surface. GrassMaster can be installed before seeding, after seeding or on grass sods.
The multifunctional potential of a sports arena has become a must-have for stadium managers, club owners, ground managers, etc.: the venue must be able to host football, rugby and NFL games, tournaments, events, concerts, training sessions and more. GrassMaster surfaces guarantee optimal playing characteristics during intense and heavy use, all year long.
GrassMaster is the proven system for top-level tournaments, multifunctional sports pitches, busy stadium calendars and state-of-the-art training facilities. The playing quality is the preferred choice of sports and event industry stakeholders around the world.
PlayMaster is a carpet-based hybrid grass system that can be installed on site as well as grown in sods. It is developed especially to meet the need for a quick installation and an instant operational availability. The combination of natural and artificial grass creates a firm natural grass surface. The synthetic filaments are fixed in a special backing fabric that grants perfect root penetration, as well as oxygen supply and drainage.
In general, the hybrid grass sods are grown at specialist turf farms. Afterwards, the ready-to-play turf rolls are installed at the venue. In this case, PlayMaster is instantly playable. Besides that, the system can also be sown directly on the pitch. With this type of installation, PlayMaster can be played after the growth of the natural grass.
