New Indoor Training Facility

New Indoor Training Facility

The Hawkes Bay Magpies Rugby Franchise now has its own home in Napier with a gym, meeting rooms, offices and an indoor skills training facility, for which TigerTurf Wett Pro was selected as the best of the best. An excellent match for the Magpies, WETT Pro is the most durable performance sports turf on the current
international market.
TigerTurf WETT Pro Is Supremely Durable With Performance Qualities

TigerTurf WETT Pro Is Supremely Durable With Performance Qualities

The 50m long indoor skills training room will include sprints, ball skills, agility and sleds to develop strength and endurance. Luckily, TigerTurf WETT Pro was designed with both these qualities and many more to make it the best gym surface available. We installed a BSW 10mm rubber shock pad beneath the WETT Pro surface to absorb
impact, sound and to enhance the performance and longevity of the WETT Pro sports surface.

TigerTurf Wett Pro

TigerTurf WETT Pro system has been tested to
current FIH (Federation International Hockey)
Global standards
Providing longer life expectancy than any other
product on the market TigerTurf has developed the
WETT Pro surface using advanced fibre technology
exclusive to TigerTurf.
The unique texturised monofilament yarn ensures a
grain free playing surface which means the ball and
stick travels smoothly in all direction.
WETT Pro’s hard wearing characteristics also make it
an ideal surface within the gym environment, making it
ideal for resistance training.

Hard Wearing Characteristics

TigerTurf installations comply with the New Zealand Building Code and Indoor Fire Regulations
The New Zealand Building Code and Indoor Fire Regulations require a dressing of sand to be spread on the WETT Pro sports system to comply with the rules governing the safe use of
synthetic turfs indoors.

TigerTurf is meticulous in complying with all local and national Building Code and Safety regulations when installing our products. Safety for users, our teams and the environment are
the prime considerations in all our planning and construction.

TigerTurf WETT Pro is designed for heavy use on sports fields, courts and gyms
TigerTurf WETT Pro is recognised as the premium gym surface for the outstanding qualities that make it a superb sports system in any context.

The surface has excellent traction to provide the sure footing that is essential for the intense, fast-moving training routine of the Magpies and is firm enough under-foot to support fast response without significantly increasing fatigue.

A neutral, grain-free surface, WETT Pro does not impede sled training or ball movement in any direction. And of course, being able to move naturally in any direction is essential for skills practice at this intense level.

TigerTurf shock pads improve the gym training experience, athletes’ health and turf performance
For the Hawkes Bay Magpies, it was necessary to install a shock pad beneath the WETT Pro surface to reduce the impact on joints and to mitigate injuries from falls during regular,
strenuous sessions at the gym.
