Proven Safety

Any company can claim to offer safe turf products. However, when it comes to proven safety for your children and athletes, there is only one company that stands beyond all – FieldTurf.

FieldTurf offers the safest artificial turf system available today.

While no sport can ever be completely injury-free, we continue to find new ways to reduce the risk and severity of injuries. Our focus on safety has led to numerous injury-reducing innovations and improvements. As a result, we have the products and experience to help you provide the safest playing field possible for your athletes.

The findings of a long-term testing program show that FieldTurf is safer than any other synthetic turf system and equal to – if not better than – natural grass in most critical areas of player safety.
