TigerTurf Atomic 40 installed with a TenCate Sine® Pad beneath the turf surface made it possible for Riverina Primary School to have a top performance football pitch.
Riverina Primary School asked TigerTurf to come up with a plan to overcome the wet conditions that kept the school playing field closed all winter. The school wanted TigerTurf to install a top level football pitch just like the full-size football field we constructed at the Michaels Avenue Reserve in 2013.
TenCate Sine® is a multi-functional product that TigerTurf often includes as a component of our sub-base systems: it absorbs impact effectively, providing safety for players, drains water rapidly, and maintains stability. Air flows readily through the cellular structure, cooling the surface, promoting fast drying after rain, and improving playing conditions. These components work together as a complete turf system to sustain a high performance surface despite adverse weather and site conditions.
The TigerTurf team constructed a dynamic crushed rock base incorporating sub-soil drains for improved drainage, topped with the Sine® shock pad, which supports the dry, stable surface. The Atomic 40 football surface was installed to provide football and rugby teams with the characteristics of a good natural football field and the advantages of a high-performance synthetic surface.
Then we used excavated soil to build a natural seating platform so spectators have a good viewpoint from which to enjoy the games. A one-metre boundary fence was added, to retain the ball without obstructing the view.
A TigerTurf maintenance contract will keep the new football field in top condition for play in all weather, year-round. Through summer droughts and winter wetness, the students at Riverina Primary School will be playing on their splendid new football field.
