5. Quality Control
The AstroTurf plant has been in continuous operation since 1968. That’s longer than any facility in the industry. Over the half century of operation, the plant has cultivated a wealth of manufacturing expertise and institutional knowledge. That sort of institutional knowledge is not discovered overnight. It is earned through years of experience and the many successes and the mistakes that are hard-earned over the decades. The cumulative experience of decades of triumphs and shortfalls inform our manufacturing processes and material selections. We use industry-best components and control virtually every step of the artificial turf manufacturing process.
6. Warranty and Service
Our approach to customer service and warranty performance is atypical for the industry. We treat all clients with fairness, regardless of their profile or visibility. We offer a strong warranty for 8-10 years. Our warranty language is clean and simple, with no hidden triggers or fine print. AstroTurf offers one point of contact for quality concerns, but we partner with synthetic turf maintenance experts located across the country, ensuring prompt service.
7. Environmental Stewardship
AstroTurf is committed to the environment. Each AstroTurf field can save up to 20,000,000 gallons of water, without use of pesticides, herbicides, or other chemicals. The use of rubber infill keeps millions of tires each year out of landfills. At the end of a field’s life cycle, all components can be repurposed for other uses.
AstroTurf was the first brand of artificial turf on the market. First pioneered in 1964 and used in 1965 at the Astrodome on the world’s first indoor baseball game, we’ve seen it all. An industry fixture and the brand leader for cutting–edge synthetic turf technology, AstroTurf has earned a sterling reputation for warranty performance and client trust.
AstroTurf’s focus on more fiber and less infill, intelligent design, advanced but disciplined R&D, stellar warranty performance, sport-specific playability, and unique installation techniques all add up to one benefit for turf field owners— VALUE. While we might not always be the cheapest option on the front end, our cost over time is significantly lower. And when you factor in all of the hours of use your AstroTurf athletic field allows, your savings multiply.
10. Ease of Purchase
Athletic turf technology is rapidly accelerating. That’s a good thing. It means that you’re more likely to find a product that will benefit your organization. There are more choices than ever before, between infills, pads, turf designs, companies, and more. But all of that choice can lead to “analysis paralysis”. The good news is that we have dedicated artificial turf consultants ready to help you navigate the complexities of this major investment. If you take a backseat through the process you might get stuck with something you don’t want. So get involved. Get educated. But don’t do it alone. Contact us today.
