FMG Stadium Waikato has MOTZ Stabilized Turf – TSII™ which is the latest in natural turf surfacing.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
