Fibrillated artificial grass is very common and is also very popular among players. The sand works significantly better on fibrillated turf and creates after a very short time an optimal playing surface.
The monofilament artificial grass has a surcharge. The sand takes much longer to go into the fibers for an optimal playing surface. It is less susceptible to hardening, if not properly maintained on outdoor installations.
NOTE: Both solutions need to be brushed regularly.
In short, if you are looking for artificial grass for your Padel club with intensive use, we recommend installing monofilament grass. Likewise, this type of fiber is indicated for slower games on the court, since the fibers, being harder, stay more upright and slightly slow down the ball. Keep in mind that this type of grass requires more maintenance since the infill can shift causing the surface to lose regularity when the ball bounces.
On the other hand, if you prefer games to be faster, we recommend installing fibrillated grass because by curling the yarn stabilizes the infill of the court, so the bounce is more consistent and faster.
If used intensively in a sports facility, the artificial grass usually lasts for about 4 – 5 years. With less use the flooring will last longer. If you are in a need to change the existing artificial grass, feel free to get in touch with us.
NEW! TEXTURED ARTIFICIAL GRASS (CRIMPED)
Artificial turf systems with textured filaments (crimped) allow intensive use, optimal cushioning and achieve a long lasting life even with reduced care.
The textured structure perfectly encapsulates the silica sand as a stabilizing sand and ensures a constant volume. The recommended silica sand filling for this solution is only approx. 7-8 kg/m2. In conventional fibrillated and monofilament solutions, the silica sand amount is 15 kg/m2.
The textured artificial turf is also the one used in the WORLD PADEL TOUR.
The small amount of silica sand also contributes to the fact that the floor gains significantly in slip resistance. For the players, this also means more security in the game. The game is not affected. The bounce in the ball is excellent right from the start and immediately after installation on all points of the surface. Since there is no friction with the sand, the field as well as the balls have a longer life span. In addition, the visual appearance is perfect and it has a very homogeneous and intense color throughout the playing field. Available only in blue and green and it has a surcharge.
IMPORTANT ADVANTAGE FOR MAINTENANCE
Another BIG advantage is that you skip the usual and regular maintenance work to redistribute the sand over the surface.See pictures on the left.
