Choose Italgreen for your artificial turf rugby field
Creating an artificial turf rugby field is the only way to have a perfect playing field that can be used throughout the year, which does not affect game performance and, on the contrary, prevents problems encountered with natural grass fields, such as:
- the formation of mud and puddles caused by bad weather
- blades of grass damaged by continuous treading
The advantages of an artificial turf rugby field
Rugby puts the field to the test. It is not uncommon that teams playing on natural grass are forced to suspend games regularly to keep the field in acceptable conditions. An unusable field is not a good investment.
However, this situation can be easily solved by using an artificial turf rugby field, since it:
- can be used 365 days a year
- is perfect in all climatic conditions because, in case of bad weather, the draining systems prevent the formation of mud and puddles on the field surface
- requires little maintenance with consequent cost savings
- optimally absorbs shock thanks to a Prodrain anti-shock draining underlay
What is the best rugby artificial turf?
We produce three main types of rugby artificial turf, all approved and endorsed by the IRB (International Rugby Board) and Italian Rugby Federation: DOUBLE 4, DMX and All Star.
DOUBLE 4 with cutting-edge performance thanks to the blades of grass characterized by a double diamond shape, which gives the lawn resistance and high elastic memory. It is a two-colored lawn, completely similar to a natural grass, which guarantees:
- perfect foot support and torque
- shock absorption and return of energy needed for momentum
DMX is made up of a special monofilament grass fiber resistant to UV rays, frost or continuous foot traffic because they can immediately return to a vertical position. DMX is a synthetic turf suitable for rugby because it:
- is as soft as a natural field and does not cause abrasion in the event of a fall or sliding of the athletes
- has greater elastic memory
All Star has a net height of 52 mm and is made up of a special fiber with four combined and bonded sections that create, among other things, reinforcement capable of retaining the infill performance. This lawn:
- has optimal reflectance and slipperiness indices
- absorbs shock and returns energy
- allows for perfect foot support and torque
