What Is The Advantage Of A Modular Turf System?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: July, 2021 - Modified: July, 2021

One advantage to having a modular turf system is the ability to have a portable turf surface that can be installed and used almost instantly!

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.
  • 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 in 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.
  • High quality. Most modular turf products are designed to last and provide outstanding performance - even after multiple uses and assemblies/disassemblies.
  • 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.
