Proven Safety

You can't stop injuries but you can limit them

Keeping your athletes safe has and will always be our first priority. Every day, we push the boundaries of research and innovation to engineer the most advanced artificial turf systems in the industry. While no sport can ever be completely injury-free, we continue to find new ways to reduce the risk and severity of injuries. Our focus on safety has led to numerous injury-reducing innovations and improvements. As a result, we have the products and experience to help you provide the safest playing field possible for your athletes. Independent multi-year research validates our efforts to provide you and your athletes with the safest field possible.
