TigerTurf Sine for Comfort, Safety and Superior Drainage

Using TigerTurf Sine for safer, longer lasting school multi-sport surfaces

TigerTurf all-weather, durable multi-sport and landscape surfaces are designed to mitigate the danger of school playground falls and tumbles. Children being children, these mishaps are inevitable. So to further improve the shock absorbency and safety of our surfaces we have developed the TenCate Sine shock pad.

Our most advanced shock pad yet – TenCate Sine brings some impressive qualities to TigerTurf’s recreational and sports surfaces.


Protecting children from fall injuries

Synthetic turf for multi-sports surfaces is traditionally laid over asphalt, concrete or a crushed rock base.  The TenCate Sine shock pad, when laid between the base and the synthetic turf provides a shock absorbing layer that makes your sports grounds and landscape grassed areas safer than ever for children to play and fall on by cushioning the impact of playground activities.


Alleviating any damage caused by stress-load on joints

Children are incredibly active, and that’s just how they should be. By installing a Sine pad beneath our multi-sports surfaces and synthetic lawn areas, you provide more effective deformation and energy dissipation (deflection?) which can reduce potential damage caused to growing young joints and muscles by all this activity.


Sine pad Increases drainage efficacy of your turf surface

The superior drainage qualities of Sine allow your surface to dry rapidly, even after torrential rain. Sine has been designed with an intricate cellular structure, rendering particularly useful drainage qualities that benefit base construction and the playing qualities of the surface.

Your sports and play surfaces will perform consistently through all weather conditions because of the reliable, effective drainage of this technical base system.

The internal design of the Sine pad drains downwards from the surface, then laterally to storm water systems that carry the water away.

As well as water, air can flow through the structure of the pad, cooling the surface and supporting its intrinsic playing qualities.


TenCate Sine helps keep multi-sports courts in top condition

The complex internal structure of the Sine pad is designed to absorb impact and dissipate the energy over a wide area. This also reduces the effect of constant wear on the playing surface and sports grounds, extending the playing life of your valuable assets.

When Sine is used as part of the base structure, it augments the performance qualities of your sports turf, along with its useable lifespan.


The Sine pad will outlast two playing surfaces

When it is time to replace your playing surface, the new surface can be laid over the existing Sine pad, which will continue to give good service throughout the lifetime of that surface too. This is a considerable saving on the cost of installing a new playing surface, especially when you consider that the pad will extend the lifetime of the subsequent surface too.
