                                 Synthetic Turf
  Infill Turf Systems
Tall pile, in-filled turf systems which look and feel like natural grass are the standard for most football and soccer fields these days. Over the years, improvements in technology have allowed the industry to develop turf systems that minimize the problems of the past: turf burn, foot lock and turf toe. These improvements have led to the rapid growth in the popularity of synthetic turf fields, and Challenger Sports continue to looks for ways to enhance the functionality, longevity, performance and recyclability of turf products.
Challenger one of the oldest and largest synthetic turf manufacturers in the United States, they continuously invest in new equipment. Not only has this made them more efficient, but with so many machines, they can efficiently run almost any stitch gauge desired.
Recyclable Backing
While the backing may not be the most exciting element of a synthetic turf system, any school who is replacing an old turf field knows how important it is. The ability to recycle 80,000 to 100,000 square feet of turf becomes very important.
Challenger’s (patented or
proprietary) DuraFlo is an all
polyolefin backing system that is 100% recyclable and up to 50% more permeable than perforated urethane backed products.
