FieldTurf Playground is a high quality, competitively priced product line designed specifically for children’s play areas. Whether it is to be placed beneath playground equipment or simply for a running play zone, the ASTM and ADA compliant product is adaptable to achieve the best suited functionality even at varying fall heights.
Studies show that falls to the surface contribute up to 80% of all playground injuries. We can’t stop kids from being kids, but we can improve the safety of their play area. Our FallSoft™ technology incorporates a water permeable safety pad installed beneath our patented infill system to provide additional protection against falls from play equipment.

Step on a FieldTurf surface, and you’ll see that the future of artificial grass is right at your feet. FieldTurf’s artificial playground turf is a revolutionary product; designed and engineered to create a surface that duplicates the performance and appearance of real grass. After years of research and development, and hundreds of tests in the field and in the laboratory, FieldTurf’s artificial grass is unlike any other. It looks like grass, feels like grass and plays like grass(TM).
FieldTurf incorporates a water permeable safety pad installed beneath the product to provide additional protection against falls from play equipment.
FieldTurf fibers are made from a polyethylene blend, treated and tufted into a unique porous surface backing. Specially engineered equipment places each individual grass fiber in a pattern that emulates real grass. Our patented hybrid fiber is strong, smooth, soft, and forgiving. The infill is made from graded silica sand and ground rubber and surrounds each fiber like natural earth holds a blade of grass. The infill provides a non-compactable, resilient, natural earth feel. The interaction between the synthetic grass fibers and the patented cryogenic ground rubber and silica sand infill system delivers the ultimate surface, both for play and looks.
FieldTurf surfaces deliver optimal performance in wet or dry conditions and provide the ideal conditions all year long. A totally porous system, FieldTurf is specially engineered to provide maximum drainage, and leave the turf perfect, even under the heaviest downpour. Each blade of synthetic grass is UV protected and is resistant to the most extreme temperatures. FieldTurf surfaces are useable twelve months a year. Year after year.
Aside from terrible weather, excessive use can cause serious damage to natural grass, wearing it out and preventing daily usage of grass. FieldTurf surfaces can stand up to continual use which would tear away at a natural grass surface. With a minimum amount of maintenance, FieldTurf surfaces look great and maintain their quality of play and appearance regardless of the amount of traffic. FieldTurf claims all the benefits of real grass and artificial grass, with the drawbacks of neither.
