FIELD HOCKEY: YOUR PASSION YOUR SPORT

Field hockey is a game of speed. It is a game that places high demands on its players. It demands just as much from the pitch. Not many sports serve the playing surface the kind of beating field hockey can. A field hockey surface has to be incredibly durable and capable of handling the kind of wear this sport serves up. The surface needs to be flat and stay flat. It must be predictable and fast for players to be able to play at their best. A sluggish pitch removes the swift pace from the game and limits players ability to excel. Your Field hockey system with

GreenFields® TX provides the consistent, durable and predictable playing surface your team needs. GreenFields® TX is among our newest innovations. It is a synthetic turf system that has been developed in tight collaboration with TenCate, a global textiles technology specialist, and leading field hockey players.

GreenFields TX has undergone extensive research and development and has been field tested by clubs who play field hockey at top levels. Based on the experience of field hockey players, our TX synthetic turf system was developed even further at user level for the purpose of creating a system that has now been named Number One on earth by the World Cup organization.

GreenFields TX

The Choice of Champions

This TX field is very good. Short fibers, fibers close together, which make it a nice levelled pitch! The ball rolls smoothly which makes perfect ball control possible and predictable as the ball bounce is very consistent. There is no difference in the roll of the ball anywhere on the field. With the fibers being short and close together there is little underfoot friction. GreenFields TX is fast and soft without being too soft. In short, excellent pitch with all ingredients for the modern hockey players.

YOUR FIELD HOCKEY TURF SYSTEM

Field Components

The individual parts of any field hockey system aren’t a good gauge for performance on their own. It isn’t only about the shock pad or the turf. The overall quality of any artificial turf system is measured by the ability to combine all the individual parts into one functional system. It takes an approach that is multi-disciplinary to be able to constantly improve all the components of an artificial turf system, and it takes suppliers’ involvement in the product’s development and design. GreenFields has created alliances and partnerships designed to increase the total sustainability and impact of the many innovative technologies that lead to the development of turf systems.That is why we, at GreenFields, seek out partners in a number of industries to help us deliver new and more innovative products.
Tailor-made design

GreenFields vision is to create a global network of sports fields that offer optimal playing conditions. It is that vision that has caused us make necessary adaptations to the way we do things on a number of fronts. GreenFields’ CI&M Department represents a vast knowledge center. It controls design and building on each GreenFields project. Every object’s design is determined by the evaluation of local data gathered from our engineers, customers and sales partners. All the gathered information is then converted by our CI&M experts to create a preliminary draft of each object that includes details about all surrounding elements. The final design is created using CAD and CAM technology and is designed to ensure the calculation of precision measurements that will be used in the sub-base construction, installation of drainage systems, and, of course, turf systems.
Construction

Earthwork and sub-base can vary by locale, country or continent. A well-designed sub-base has the advantage of not needing to be rebuilt every time the turf needs replacing. A suitable and stable base is a very important part of the quality of the playing surface and its life expectancy. Construction is facilitated and completed by one of GreenFields’ local offices or in cooperation with local construction companies under GreenFields supervision. A GreenFields supervisor is present at regular intervals during the course of construction to verify the work gets done in keeping with the approved design. He or she also ensures that work is proceeding within the alotted  timeframe.

Turf Installation

The turf will only be installed after the the sub-base’s quality has been verified and the layer of shock absorption has been approved. Work on your field begins by unrolling rolls of turf in accordance with the developed seaming plan. Each roll is then set into place. Next, the edges are cut. Before they can be glued together, seam tapes need to be laid under each join between each strip of artificial turf. After all the strips are glued together, pitch lines and center spot are cut and glued into place.
