For example, if the natural turf is recommended to operate no more than two hours a day, Artificial – 24 hours. The season can last all year round (if clean off the snow). For Sports (football, hockey, tennis, rugby, etc.) used herbal field with natural or artificial turf. Compositionally, artificial turf is divided mainly into three groups. Fibers first groups are composed of polypropylene. Use on the football field this type of grass burns accompanied by athletes. Over time, technology developed in the fibers of artificial grass.

The composition of the fibers was introduced a new material – polyamide. However, the use of such fiber in Russia in a similar climate, countries co is difficult because for softening of the fibers is often necessary to irrigate a lawn synthetic water, which in abrupt change in temperature is difficult and may entail the destruction of the fibers. The latest achievement in the field of synthetic turf fibers become polyethylene. Its distinctive features are the strength and security. System installation and drainage helps the playing field during the rain. Depending on installation artificial grass areas are divided into Sediment (with a layer of quartz sand and rubber granulate) and nezasypnye. Filling allows you to adjust the height of the "stem" and the density of coverage, depending on the sport to practice specifically designed playground. Thanks to the filling of artificial rubber granulate herbs can avoid "burn" the skin athlete falls on artificial turf.

On nezasypnoy grass should be used with water irrigation system. The color scheme of artificial turf consists mainly of 2 colors: green and red, but there is also a collection that includes a diverse range of colors – yellow, blue, brown and other colors. For the artificial grass court is immeasurably easier than natural. Not accident in 2001, the (FIFA) to allow an official matches on fields with artificial grass. Caring for artificial grass, as opposed to natural, reduced to cleaning extraneous matter. On this site you can play, in principle, 24 hours a day 365 days a year in all climates. Artificial turf is made from 100% synthetic materials: the copolymer, polyethylene, tialona, polypropylene, a synthetic non-woven cloth, PVA dispersions, rubber granulate. Exploitation of artificial grass. 1. During the operation artificial turf is necessary to periodically wet to improve performance and reduce dust. 2. Never use an open flame on the lawn and flammable liquids, as used in the manufacture of the materials are combustible. 3. Temperature conditions of intensive operation: -10 to +50 degrees C, in prevent premature spoilage and reduce the life of the lawn.
