What Is The Advantage Of A Modular Turf System?

What Is The Advantage Of A Modular Turf System?

Artificial turf is an appealing surface for many uses, including athletic training. But permanently installed athletic turf can have some downsides, especially when you’re dealing with space limitations.

Modular turf systems offer many advantages compared to more traditional artificial turf. Not only do you have more versatility with installation options, but these modular turf systems offer several other perks that make them a highly popular choice.

Advantages To Using Modular Turf Systems


  • Portability and transportability. A modular turf system can be moved into, installed, and disassembled and removed from any facility or venue, in whole or in part. This means that venues with a traditional gym or other hard surface floor can have turf in place for different events. This offers versatility and the ability to promote multipurpose use, even when you may have limited space.

  • Ease of turf replacement. If certain modular turf panels or tiles become damaged or worn, those sections can simply be replaced with new ones. This offers a huge savings of both time and money compared to the replacement of an entire flooring system.

  • Fast installation. A modular turf solution can be installed right over a sports surface, allowing for a quick conversion to turf. There isn’t significant site preparation to worry about, and there’s no infill to purchase or install, which can save you time and money.

  • High quality. Most modular turf products are designed to last and provide outstanding performance - even after multiple uses and assemblies/disassemblies. These highly durable products are often backed by multi-year manufacturer’s warranties.

  • Training on turf at any time of the year is possible. If a standard gym floor doesn’t provide the type of surface needed for training and practice, you can move your training that is typically outdoors to an indoor, temporary facility with artificial turf that will support many types of sports and activities.

RageTurf Rally Interlocking Tile

The RageTurf Rally Interlocking Tile is a versatile indoor gym turf system. This tile features a rubber backing that adds just enough cushion for fitness training. The tile is available in four different blade colors, including traditional green, black, gray, and dark blue. Once installed, the tile seams nearly disappear into the turf for a more natural look.

This tile is ideal for many athletic uses, including agility training for track and field or football athletes, and soccer skill training. It offers optimal traction for these types of workouts, and can also be used in weight training areas. The rubber backing helps to protect subfloors from dropped weights, and the tiles can also be ideal for recreational workouts in home spaces like basements or garages.

Installation is as simple as lining up the slots on the tiles with the tabs on the adjacent tile and pressing them together. There’s no need for adhesive.
