Montreal, Canada, May 18, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The most durable slit-film fibers in the industry combined with high performance spined monofilament fibers provides real benefits for FieldTurf’s clients.
FieldTurf announced today the launch of "FieldTurf Vertex," a product that features the most durable slit-film fibers in the industry combined with the highest performing spined monofilament fibers. The result is a turf product that offers the patented FieldTurf infill mix with two distinct types of fibers – providing for a natural look, excellent ball performance and a system that is backed by long-term independent real-life safety data.
The fibrillation process of the slit-film component in the Vertex product allows for infill encapsulation while the monofilament fibers facilitate grass-like ball roll and a heightened aesthetic appearance. Both fibers have withstood stringent testing and were designed to resist matting.
“The Vertex fibers have been combined with our patented infill system for maximum safety and performance,” said FieldTurf President Eric Daliere. “This new offering adds to the many reasons why clients can continue to turn to FieldTurf for innovative artificial turf products.”
The introduction of FieldTurf Vertex further enhances FieldTurf’s high performance product lineup. FieldTurf is no stranger to transforming an industry; having introduced infilled grass systems to the world over 15 years ago in addition to developing the first slit-film fiber artificial turf systems and the first spined monofilament fiber artificial turf systems. All of the company’s artificial grass products are focused on player safety, increased athletic performance, longevity and delivering the highest return on investment for its customers.
