Indoor Synthetic Turf Uses

Transform Building for Rent

We have had some inquiries by people who have a seasonal business looking to capitalize on their slow season. Owners who have a building sitting empty for consecutive months are laying indoor synthetic turf to create a rentable space for the community. We have seen people create a space for sports practices, like a mini soccer field open to the public to rent or for off-season athletic training for personal trainers who don’t want to train outdoors in the cold. We have also seen people convert their space into a place for corporate functions or weddings. A covered space with the look and feel of the outdoors does very well in the rental market. Corporate functions, birthday parties, and community events have kept these spaces booked during the businesses off season.

Entertainment

There has been a growing trend in North America towards golf related activities in the entertainment industry. Businesses like Top Golf are doing extremely well in creating a fun environment similar to going bowling back in the day. They create a bar vibe, with DJs playing music, food and beverage for purchase, and teams competing against each other for the best score.

Indoor Mini Putt Course

Arcades and children’s entertainment buildings often include a mini putt course indoors to keep the business going in the winter. The businesses we have worked with often include an outdoor course, and then another version indoors for when the weather doesn’t permit play outdoors. The options are unlimited with our coloured turf and ability to work with any design and space.

Daycare facilities are moving towards only using synthetic turf as the fall height ratings and durability are unmatched. Our EZ Play system is designed specifically for these types of facilities with play structures and keep kids safety at the top of mind.

Many homeowners are choosing to replace their natural lawns with artificial grass in order to increase the resale value of their homes.

The benefits of Synthetic Turf are endless. It’s virtually maintenance-free, requires no water, contains recyclable components, and no chemical or fertilizers are required – just to name a few.

Artificial turf is durable, easy to maintain, creates a high quality and safe playing surface for children, dogs and sports. It’s an excellent investment for you and your family. SoftLawn® is one of our most popular products.

Spend more time outside with your family and enjoy the benefits of Synthetic Turf’s incredible products.

The initial installation price of Synthetic Turf can be expensive, but the long-term benefits and lengthy warranty makes Synthetic Turf a savvy investment. Plus, save on gas, oil and general upkeep on lawn mowers and trimmers.

Once Synthetic Turf is installed, the warranty and durability ensure a gorgeous green and natural looking lawn for years to come. Artificial turf provides the same green natural appeal and softness as natural grass, without the expense.

Synthetic Turf for Events

Have you been thinking about using artificial turf for your event? You’re not alone. Event turf has been growing in popularity for personal events, corporate events, and general commercial use steadily over recent years. Consumers are becoming more aware of the wide variety of options, and this makes it easier to utilize the product in many scenarios.

Set the Perfect Scene

Event planners put in uncountable hours to ensure their event goes off without a hitch. Planning months or even years in advance presents some challenges. Arguably one of the most difficult to plan around, would be environmental. Wedding venues are turning to synthetic turf to ensure no matter the weather conditions leading up to the day, they can promise their couples a perfectly manicured lawn as a backdrop to the wedding. Event rental companies are also more inclined to work with these venues as their rentals are returned clean and in much better condition than if it were a rainy day and furniture was left in the mud.

Portable Green Space

Synthetic turf is also a great option for scenarios where the turf may need to be moved after some time, or events that move around the country. The turf is a great, lightweight option to provide green floor space in an instant. Just roll it out and watch the green space grow! We find consumers love this option for trade shows and large outdoor conferences as the synthetic turf is ADA compliant (wheelchairs can roll) and it is easy to clean and maintain with high traffic areas.

Sponsorship Opportunities

With the custom logo and waterjet abilities of our manufacturing plant, the possibilities are truly endless of what we can provide for corporate events. We often have large media events ‘sell’ the advertising space in the synthetic turf for companies to insert their logo right into the turf. These are some of the recent logos we have provided.

 

athletic synthetic turf

Artificial turf for personal events such as weddings, photo booths, and reunions is becoming a top choice to achieve the lush backyard lawn appearance many strive towards. The turf makes it feel much more inviting and luxurious.

The corporate use of synthetic turf is something that is growing in popularity as people learn how far synthetic turf has come since ‘Astroturf’ days. It really does look realistic and there are so many colours, heights, and other specifications to make it exactly what you are looking for. Most recently we find businesses using artificial turf for commercials and in film and tv shows. Adding some turf to the set allows for the show to display a real neighbourhood home, at any time of year with a beautiful lawn.

Many municipalities are also including synthetic lawn in their plan for community markets and festivals due to its easy maintenance and cleaning abilities. Having a pet friendly space where people can go hang out is a great addition to any event.

EZ Tees Benefits in Vancouver

There are several benefits of installing Synthetic Turf’s® artificial grass products on residential and commercial properties. As artificial grass technology improves and expands, the look, feel and experience continues to improve.

Gorgeous Green Synthetic Grass

One of the greatest benefits of installing Synthetic Turf® products is how easy it is to maintain gorgeous green grass. The maintenance packages we offer are completely optional and purely for aesthetics.

While residential properties typically require minimal to zero regular maintenance, commercial uses, such as golf courses, require a bit more care for optimal use.  

With the spring season on the horizon, it’s time to consider the state of your golf course turf. For the best golfing experience, replace it after winter.

The Benefits of Synthetic Turf® EZ Tee Product Line on Your Golf Course

Throughout the golfing season, golf courses experience a lot of use, which wears Tee Lines and Hitting Mats down. Similarly, snow, ice and the winter conditions cause golf course turfs to lose its feel and look.

Synthetic Turf® offers two tee line and hitting mat surfaces to give your golfers and golf course the ultimate look and feel. The EZ Tee Poly® is made from polypropylene. This allows for a stiffer fiber which is ideal for heavy traffic Tee Lines.

EZ Tee Hybrid® our other top end Tee Line and Hitting Mat turf. Polypropylene and nylon blend allows for a fuller fiber with soft feel through impact.

Both EZ Tee Poly® and EZ Tee Hybrid® are used by several elite golf courses through the US and Canada. Neither product replaces real grass, but it gives grass time to heal properly and can be installed on a compacted aggregate base or on concrete. Concrete will extend the life of these turfs.

4 Reasons Why Your Gym Needs Synthetic Turf

Are you a gym owner or a trainer that is considering opening your own location? There are many factors you will have to consider when opening a gym, one of those factors being the materials that you will use inside your facility.

Let’s face it- there are thousands of gyms across the country with a new location opening in your hometown almost every month. Between crossfit, martial arts and weight lifting gyms, competition is fierce. If you are serious about standing out to your customers and offering a premium fitness solution, you need your atmosphere to reflect that fact as well. One of the ways you can do that is by installing customized synthetic turf inside your gym.

Synthetic turf is amazing for specialized gym environments because:

  • It is low impact
  • You can use equipment such as sleds
  • Turf is excellent for dropping weights onto
  • And, it reduces injuries

Would these be some excellent selling qualities to tout to potential gym members? These benefits are sure to make your gym one of the first choices in your city.

 

Low Impact on Joints

As we move into 2018, the workout industry has never been more focused on overall health and longevity. Athletes want to work out longer and harder without having to stop and be hindered by injuries. Many activities, such as the sprinting required for HIIT is extremely hard on the knees and ankles. When you sprint or jump on a hard surface, there is little to no support for your joints. When you complete those same motions on synthetic turf, the athletes body will go through much less stress as the turf absorbs a lot of the shock that would normally be transferred to the body.

 

Equipment Such as Sleds Slides on Turf

If you are a personal trainer, or an athlete involved in MMA or football, you know how important weighted sleds have become in many athletes routines. Sleds can be loaded with as much or as little weight as you want, then pushed or pulled by the athlete, providing a steady stream of resistance. The only problem with sleds it that they require a smooth surface to slide across. Many gyms do not have a space where a sled can be used but if you install synthetic turf, your gym will be sled friendly and pull in customers from all over your city who are looking to jump on the latest workout craze.

 

Drop the Weights on the Turf as Much as You Like

Have you attended a crossfit class lately? Many of the exercises that have been re-popularized by the sport involve picking up extremely heavy weights, dropping them on the ground and then picking them up again to repeat the process. How do you think your equipment will fair if it is constantly being dropped on cement or hard flooring? With synthetic turf, you can deadlift and clean and jerk all you want, bouncing the weights off the turf without worry. Dropping weights onto synthetic turf is also less noisy, especially when you have multiple groups of athletes all completing the same exercise.

 

Fall on the Turf? No Big Deal

As an athlete works out and becomes fatigued, the chances of falling and injuring themselves increases. This can happen in any situation but happens frequently during sprinting and agility drills. When an athlete falls onto synthetic turf, he rolls and dusts himself off- no big deal. When an athlete falls onto hard flooring such as cement of plastic padding, they are left with a serious injury that might even send them to the hospital. Of course insurance takes care of the majority of the liability that comes with owning a gym, but you want your athletes to be safe when working out under your roof. Less injuries, more happy customers!

 

There you have it! Four solid reasons why you need to invest in some synthetic turf for your athletic inspired business.

Project Highlights

While we installed many impressive projects this year, a few really stood out for us.

We were incredibly excited to provide synthetic turf soccer field to the city of Yellowknife this summer. The kids were so excited to have a new play space and we love hearing stories from our contacts there about how much use it is getting.

Another favourite was a local daycare in the Okanagan. They transformed both campuses into full synthetic turf playground areas.

Our most unique athletic project of the year was a multi sports field. You can see the birds eye view of it below. For a size reference, those little ‘sticks’ are 15’ long! This install was a huge improvement for the city of Lloydminster.

The most unique residential project of the year would probably be a backyard installation surrounding a trampoline. They built the trampoline into the ground, and surrounded the space in synthetic turf to ensure a soft landing even if bounced too far.
