Construction: synthetic grass fields on a high performance base

Top quality synthetic grass fields require a high performance base. The construction of the base is as much a part of the total surface system as the surface material and underlay. TigerTurf’s design and operations team construct our bases to meet the specifications determined by the various sporting bodies. We use the appropriate drainage and surface tolerances for your sport or application.

There are different methods and materials used for base construction. The choice of base depends on the end usage of the sports surface. The options include asphalt, concrete or dynamic, with or without shock-pads. Information we consider when designing the perfect base includes:
