FieldTurf at Augusta High School Ready for Home Opener

FieldTurf meets tight timeline and continues to deliver on time.

Augusta, KS, September 09, 2011 --( Augusta High School can look forward to kicking off 2011 on their brand new FieldTurf Revolution field. The Orioles are set to host Clearwater for their home opener on September 9, and FieldTurf ensures the field will be ready to go.

FieldTurf is properly equipped to handle any situation that may arise during the installation process, and guarantees that the project will be completed on time as expected by the client. Customer satisfaction is taken very seriously, and in the world of collegiate athletics where time is always a critical component in all endeavors, FieldTurf delivers. The grueling heat wave that has affected the school’s region for most of the summer will certainly not delay the installation, and school officials can’t wait to get started playing on the innovative Revolution product.

FieldTurf Revolution is rapidly becoming the industry’s #1 turf product. Testing results show that it’s the safest and most durable turf in the market. Superior polymer, process, and geometry has enabled the development of this riveting new fiber blade that mimics a real grass blade to near perfection. The patented heavy infill formula of rubber and sand provides users the necessary support and traction to perform at a high level, and has proven to reduce the amount of injuries versus the best of natural grass fields.

When push came to shove, FieldTurf Revolution was the smart choice for Augusta High School – one that will certainly have the program reaping the most benefits on and off the field.

Augusta joins a list of impressive schools and professional sports teams that have decided to install Revolution, and becomes the first Revolution venue in the state of Kansas. Other nearby installs include Southeast Missouri State University, Aledo Independent School District, and Woodford County High School. Choosing FieldTurf means choosing the brand that delivers the total package: product, performance, and complete customer satisfaction.
