- provides an extremely aesthetic, natural and safer play
- protects the synthetic grass from the UV rays and
- consolidates the infill with its roots.
...the artificial turf
- prevents the formation of divots during the game and allows many hours of play for trainings and matches that can take place also under heavy rain.
- protects the crowns of the grass plants on the surface.
- anchors the roots of the grass that penetrate the backing in search of water and nutrients.
