DIFFERENT BY DESIGN

  • The unique knitted construction delivers the design intent - consistency. To achieve consistency, each bundle has the same number of fibres and each bundle is evenly spaced.
  • The sport(s) will determine the optimum number of fibres and bundles per m2. HERO Hybrid Grass will be designed and constructed to suit.
  • In the table, four hybrid grass products are compared. Consistency is best defined by distribution, i.e. bundles per m2 rather fibres per m2.

THE PERFECT BALANCE BETWEEN NATURAL & ARTIFICIAL GRASS

  • The artificial grass is anchored to the grid. This open foundation is unique, promoting drainage and root development.
  • The artificial grass is 5% of the playing surface. It protects the natural grass and increases the playing hours 3x
  • HERO Hybrid Grass passes FIFA and World Rugby playing standards for natural grass.

DESIGNED FOR THE PLAYER: OPTIMUM PLAY & OPTIMUM SAFETY

  • The artificial grass provides vertical stability and the open grid provides horizontal stability. Stability creates consistency and consistency creates safety.
  • The open foundation allows the player’s energy to be absorbed in the profile and returned from the profile. Optimum biomechanical performance.
  • HERO Hybrid Grass supports optimum ball roll and bounce, and optimum player sliding, turning, stepping and jumping.

THE VERSATILE NATURAL GRASS PLAYING SURFACE

  • Designed to suit different sports, football, rugby and golf; and to suit different natural grass cultivars. Truly global.
  • Long-term solution e.g. 10-year+ life for stadium / training pitches. Short-term solution, e.g. lay-and-play, turf replacement.
  • HERO Hybrid Grass is 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life.
