"Even though field hockey is our primary sport for this field, we needed a multi-purpose field. We needed a turf that would give us a really fast ball roll for field hockey, but also give us the control needed for soccer. Our soccer coaches say this is the best synthetic turf field they have ever played on."

Matt MacMullan,
Co-Director of Athletics
McDonogh School

"When you're standing on our field, you see way more fibers than infill — and that's a big factor. The infill does not spray like it does in other fields — that's important to consistent playability."

Terry Dow, Football Coach
SUNY Morrisville State College
Morrisville, NY
"Players, coaches and trainers have raved about the playability and feel of our field. It has been fast and consistent. The field is now a source of pride for our school."

Chris Fanning, Athletic Director
Sahuarita High School
Sahuarita, AZ
"You cannot believe the jaw-dropping looks we still get when people see our field. Our field doesn't look like any other field. We've got the Titan with alternating panels. It really pops out at you. The Titan fits every need we could ever have. We love to show it off."

David Spiehler, Athletic Director
McQuaid Jesuit High School
Rochester, NY


The bottom line is having a field that reduces the number and severity of injuries, especially concussions from surface impact, looks and feels like plush, well-conditioned natural grass, has infill that stays in place when athletes are in action, remains unaffected by heavy use, plays perfectly in all weather conditions, requires minimal upkeep, and lasts a generation.

What makes A-Turf® Titan the best & safest system?

The fiber types.
The proprietary TenCate XP Blade™ was developed specifically to prevent splitting, so it lasts longer than any other slit fiber. It twists when played on rather than lying flat so it retains its evenness. The proprietary TenCate Monoslide™ Ultra is a perfection of the monofilament fiber. Its curved shape and multiple vertical ribs retain the natural grass look but with far-superior durability. Add the XQ™ technology, and you have a fiber with unmatched memory (retains its upright position longer than other mono fiber) and exceptional split resistance. Plus, its shape and construction significantly reduce glare.

The blended fibers & turf construction.
Some people want the performance and durability attributes of the slit fiber, while others want the natural look of the monofilament fiber. A-Turf and its turf manufacturer, Controlled Products, have developed the dual fiber Titan system that delivers both. The premium XP and Mono fibers are tufted into the same stitch giving the surface an amazingly plush look. The dense carpet holds infill in place better, reducing infill movement during play. The fibers are well rooted into the super-durable primary and secondary backings.

The shock-absorbing underlayment.
While the A-Turf® Titan surface feels and plays “firm & fast,” it delivers the best safety rating and parallels perfectly-conditioned natural grass. In the athletic field industry, impact testing measures the shock-attenuation performance of the playing surface. Test results are indicated as G-Max ratings. The higher the G-Max, the poorer the shock-attenuation performance of the surface and the greater the likelihood the fall will result in injury… especially concussions. A-Turf® Titan systems that include a rolled ShockPad or poured e-layer have the industry’s lowest G-Max rating throughout the system’s life, making it the safest synthetic turf playing system on the market. The Ecore™ ShockPad has been in use in the US and Europe for so many years that it is proving to have a 25+ year expected life (more than two field life cycles), so it can be reused when a new synthetic turf system is installed.

The infill.
We are very particular about the cleanliness, size and shape of the infill we use. A-Turf uses the cleanest SBR crumb rubber on the market. Silica sand is uniformly-sized and rounded or sub-angular, so it’s non-abrasive to athletes and fibers, and prevents compaction that leads to hardening of the surfacing system. We can use any synthetic or organic infill material in our systems, but strongly advocate a rubber & sand mixture as it provides the perfect balance of shock absorption and firmness. Rubber & sand infill are also significantly more economical than alternative infills. We also achieve the ideal infill level in relation to the fiber height. A-Turf systems have an industry-leading fiber face weight, resulting in fibers remaining upright and infill that stays in place better – improving playability and durability.

The installation.
We understand that having the greatest turf system in the world demands the best installation craftsmanship. That’s why we put so much emphasis on recruiting, training and retaining the best installers and service contractors in the business…and having a business model of being able to manage the right number of field projects to provide exceptional installation practices, step-by-step quality controls and over-the-top service on every project.

The warranty.
A-Turf offers an industry-leading 12-year warranty on its Titan system with a ShockPad or approved underlayment. That’s 4 years longer than other turf system warranties. That means you can amortize your capital expense over a longer period than with other turf systems. And it’s backed with an actual 3rd party insured warranty insurance policy for the maximum allowable duration of the warranty period (8 years). While some field builders try and pass off a certificate or letter of credit for actual coverage, we’ll gladly provide our policy for potential clients’ review.

A Careful Look At Infill Types

A Careful Look At Infill Types

A-Turf is very particular about the volume, cleanliness, size and shape of the rubber and sand that it uses. A-Turf uses the cleanest rubber on the market. Sand is rounded or non-angular, thus non-abrasive to athletes and fibers. Its shape also prevents compaction and hardening of the surfacing system.

A-Turf can offer all synthetic and organic infill materials in its systems.

The Facts About Recycled Rubber

Shredded rubber used in many of our systems comes from our parent company, ECORE International. ECORE is North America’s largest processor and user of scrap tire rubber sourced from the United States, recycling 80 million pounds of rubber each year.
