Our venues are constructed with our in house installation crew from laying of foundations to installation of our 3rd generation turf.
Sand Dressed: Our GreenFields sand dressed hockey fields have some unique advantages over water based hockey fields. Sand dressed fields provide a budget solution suitable for multi-sports such as recreational soccer and some other ball games. They are also environmentally friendly due to no irrigation requirements. Although sand dressed hockey fields do not meet FIH Global classification, in some cases they can be awarded FIH National classification for tournament play. There are three types of sand based hockey fields: Sand Filled; Dressed and Semi Water Based.
Sand Filled Hockey Fields: Sand filled hockey fields have an open structure and the grass surface has a low density. The grass fibres are kept upright by the sand infill, ensuring a high degree of stability and wear resistance. The surface provides an even and predictable ball roll. Sand filled hockey fields are very popular with schools and municipalities due to their multifunctional use.
Dressed Hockey Fields: A dressed hockey field is one which has a partial sand infill between 66% and 80% of pile depth. This infill is enough to maintain the blades of artificial grass in a vertical position. The appearance resembles an unfilled hockey field but with a slightly longer pile height.
Artificial turf for cricket is the solution for increasing the hours of play with no compromise of the pitch quality. Synthetic turf pitches can be played on more frequently and for longer. A natural grass pitch begins to deteriorate after about 250 hours play per season, while synthetic turf can be played on 24 hours a day 7 days a week – dependent on good regular maintenance. With a GreenFields sports turf installed by MultiTurf, cricket teams can enjoy a full season of lush grass on a new artificial cricket pitch.
Maintaining a natural grass pitch is labour intensive and requires significant investment of time, effort and capital. While regular maintenance is important to preserve the life of a quality synthetic sports turf such as GreenFields system, it is a lot easier and more affordable over the long term.
The quality of the playing surfaces on which sport is taught and practiced is vital in nurturing and developing sports talent. However, schools, municipalities and community clubs can find it difficult to find the space and resources for a full-size pitch.
In addition to this, grass fields take a long time before they are match ready, and then need watering, good weather, and regular maintenance. Belgotex Sport™ brings you GoSport Multi-Pitches installed by MultiTurf, which can quickly, and for a relatively small investment, provide a perfect playing surface all year round. Multiturf will design and build the Go sport range of pitches in accordance with GreenFields criteria.
The main difference between artificial turf and natural turf is that artificial turf can be used much more intensively. A natural pitch can be used a maximum of 300, on average 250, hours a year whereas an artificial grass pitch can be played on 7 days a week. Artificial turf requires less maintenance and the maintenance costs are also lower. This means the artificial turf is an extremely good investment in the long term.
Artificial turf saves space. You need fewer fields because you no longer have to take account of recovery time for the grass, or the condition of the pitch as a result of poor weather conditions. In terms of play, you can rely on artificial turf feeling very similar to natural turf. The artificial turf is developed in such a way that it replicates very closely the characteristics of a perfect natural turf.
