italgreen for hockey
Technological research has allowed Italgreen to develop synthetic turf systems for field hockey, thanks to which the company became partner and official supplier of the Italian Hockey Federation, and a partner of the most important international federations.
Field hockey likely has very ancient origins: according to some scholars, it dates back to ancient Persia! Today, field hockey gains more and more fans every year thanks to the evolution developed in the field of hockey turf. This surface, the favourite of field hockey players, has allowed the sport to grow steadily over the years, thanks to its many advantages and great comfort.
Italgreen's hockey synthetic turf systems are perfectly flat, allowing the ball to roll perfectly and offering a level of fluidity to the game that would be impossible otherwise. Our hockey turf guarantees exceptional smoothness, natural feeling and a stunning aesthetic effect. All of that, with minimum maintenance need and perfect availability all over the year, with any weather condition.
Hockey synthetic turf solutions are available in two types, according to the infill contained in the system:
Hockey synthetic turf with sandbase technology
Hockey turf with Sandbase technology. The synthetic hockey turf mantle is closely packed with sand until the tufted surface is almost completely covered. The upper part of the synthetic turf threads remains free. The resulting visual effect is as similar as possible to a natural grass field.
Hockey synthetic turf with waterbase technology
Ultra-high-tech solutions, such as Italgreen's System Waterbase (the ball rolls on a super thin water layer on the synthetic turf), guarantees a high-performing play that is appreciated by professionals in this sector: their feedback and opinions continue to help improve and modernise our hockey synthetic turf systems, to achieve results that would cause envy on even the best of traditional paving systems.
Italgreen offers synthetic grass solutions for hockey pitches, both with Sand-dressed and Water-based technology.
