“OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR A GOOD SOLUTION TO TARGETED HIGH-USE AREAS FOR SOME TIME NOW. WE TOOK THIS CLEAR FEEDBACK TO OUR INNOVATION TEAM AND DEVELOPED A CONCEPT THAT REALLY HELPS PROLONG THE LIFE OF THESE AREAS” Jason Smollett, Director of Product Management
High-use areas are a challenge for any artificial turf field. From corner & penalty kick areas in a soccer field; to the batter’s box and pitcher’s mound in a Baseball diamond; to crease areas in a Lacrosse field; high traffic areas are heavily solicited and oftentimes incur significant damage requiring frequent repairs and even replacements. As a result, customers have been asking for a good solution to the premature wear of high-use areas. We took this feedback to our innovation team and here’s what they came up with.
The ToughBack system is an innovative, patent-pending process, developed in collaboration with Beynon Sports, our sister company. Upon delivery of a field, epoxy is applied to the turf’s backing. When it hardens, you’ve got a backing that’s virtually indestructible and in no way affects safety and playability.
ToughBack has been tested in the harshest of conditions and has successfully passed the test, showing no premature signs of wear as would a typical synthetic turf surface in such circumstances.
