Artificial grass for indoor sports and athletics training fields has changed the way athletes can train in the off-season. Indoor grass can not only benefit athletes but exercise and fitness enthusiasts, too! Many fitness activities like cross-fit training, HIIT, and body-weight training are also easily done on synthetic turf. Here are 8 benefits of artificial grass for indoor sports and training facilities.
1. Durable & Long-Lasting
Fake grass is designed with strong tuft binding technology and can withstand rigorous training and heavy foot traffic. This makes it a great choice for indoor sports and fitness centers with equipment such as sports nets, batting cages, dumbbells, barbells, etc.
Indoor turf fields have more versatility and can withstand more events than natural grass. This is beneficial for sporting events where multiple games occur in succession. For a field that hosts many games and events within a short timeframe, artificial turf should be considered. Plus, you’re never at the mercy of the weather conditions.
3. Highly Customizable
Artificial grass is available in a range of colors, lengths, and construction. You have the option to customize your fake grass based on your own specific requirements. You can even get a logo, replace the rubber infill with a different infill material or forgo the infill and use a performance pad..
4. Meets Safety Standards
For indoor turf for sports, Shawgrass recommends the “high-use” padding we use for playgrounds and public parks. This grass is designed for heavy foot traffic areas and offers the best in durability and return on investment. Shawgrass is IPEMA Certified and ADA accessible.
5. Reduced Injuries
A pad or underlayment under the artificial grass allows for high-impact training to be performed without extra stress on joints. The turf padding cushions any impact that may be hard on critical joints like ankles, elbows, hips, and knees, significantly reducing pressure injuries.
6. Enhances Performance
Turf provides a stable surface that adapts easily to changes in weight and pressure. As a result, athletes can pivot and stretch on artificial turf without slipping and keep their natural rhythm during the training.
7. Low Maintenance
Keeping indoor artificial grass clean is easier than ever in a few easy steps. First, hand-remove debris or sweep or use a flexible non-metal rake to pick up large bits of debris. Then, brush any flattened grass against the grain to push the turf back up.
8. Aesthetically Appealing
Looking for a quick way to add energy and positivity to a training center? Vibrant and lush green grass adds a refreshing look. A clean and attractive turf is more inviting, even indoors. This will increase the overall aesthetic appeal of the indoor training space.
