The revolutionary design combines sand-filled, fibrillated synthetic tufts and a dual-component backing. This unique matrix shelters the vegetative parts of the grass plant that are essential for vigorous growth and rapid recuperation. The result is a super new turf with the aesthetics and playability that meet the demands of today’s sports field markets – with durability that approaches artificial.
Cross Section of MOTZ Stabilized Turf:
- The leaf blades reside above the tops of the synthetic tufts creating a fully natural grass surface. If the turf canopy is worn away, the sand-filled synthetic matrix continues to provide a consistent, sure-footed playing field.
- The grass roots become entwined in the matrix of synthetic tufts and, unimpeded, grow downward through the plastic mesh and into the foundation material below.
- The predominantly sand fill layer is selected to be compatible with our site’s foundation material, minimizing the potential for layering and assuring high water infiltration rates through the turf.
- The tough plastic mesh immediately below the vertical fibres acts as the anchor for the components above it and provides additional horizontal subsurface load bearing capacity.
