Easy-to-install synthetic turf system
Thanks to material technological innovations, the TenCate Field in a box™ synthetic turf sports pitch is both quick and easy to install. The visible pitch is, however, only a part of this: a synthetic turf pitch is a system, consisting of various layers, each with its own functionalities. Bringing these perfectly into line with each other creates a high-quality pitch.
TenCate Sine™ ensures sports safety and shock absorption
The base includes a layer that ensures stabilisation and, on top of this, a sport-technical intermediate layer. This layer determines to a great extent such characteristics as ball rebound and shock absorption, and it cushions the effect when players fall. The newly developed sport-technical intermediate layer, TenCate Sine™, is made of polyethylene foam, enhanced by a unique woven structure. TenCate Sine™ ensures even greater sports safety and shock absorption, and prolongs the service life of the pitch even further, since the pitch has less to withstand. TenCate Sine™ is also used in TenCate Field in a box™.
TenCate Accorder™ dispenses with the need for deep digging
Conventional synthetic turf systems normally use a deep layer of loose-structured soil of some forty to fifty centimetres for the base layer.
However, for the TenCate Field in a box™ pitch system a compact stabilising base layer has been developed: TenCate Accorder™. This sturdy module, made of a light yet exceptionally strong geotextile, is only five-and-a-half centimetres high. This means that far less ground needs to be dug up and, as a rule, heavy machinery is not required.
The TenCate Accorder™ is made up of dozens of compartments per square metre that can each be filled with local sand, rubble, grit and laterite. Since these are almost universally available, no trucks need to be used to bring in materials over long distances, which saves on time and costs, as well as on CO2 emissions.
