GrassMaster Solutions, our hybrid turf production partner, today unveiled the latest innovation in hybrid installation technology: the GrassMaster Gen-S.
The new machinery offers a faster, lighter, eco-friendly stitching method for the installation of GrassMaster Solutions’ market-leading hybrid grass systems.
With over 5million m2 of GrassMaster Solutions hybrid turf installed worldwide and utilised at the highest levels of elite sport, the Gen-S is the latest addition to the company’s installation fleet, the result of continued investment in people, technology and equipment.
The advanced technology of the new Gen-S delivers accurate and variable stitch spacing and depth. With the robust hydraulic stitching unit cutting down installation time, GrassMaster’s experienced installation teams can now deliver the world’s most proven hybrid technology, faster.
Benjamin Huneau, General Manager, GrassMaster Solutions, commented:
“We are excited about this latest addition which further extends our market-leading proposition within the hybrid grass sector. The Gen-S is electrically powered and allows our experienced installation teams to stitch a GrassMaster pitch more quickly.”
The new Gen-S machine is electrically powered which – combined with the shorter stitching time – reduces the energy consumed in the installation process. This power option will surely prove a bonus for carbon-conscious clients and demonstrates GrassMaster Solutions’ – and parent company Tarkett Sports – continued commitment to improving sustainability.
As well as delivering faster, eco-friendly, hybrid turf stitching, the new GrassMaster Gen-S is the company’s lightest machine yet, providing enhanced protection for the 100% natural grass turf utilised in the world’s leading hybrid turf pitches – each pitch reinforced with 20 million in-house produced high-performance monofilament fibres (HPF).
“The new light weight machine allows for lower down-pressures on the surface, thus reducing the machine’s impact when working on young grass.”
GrassMaster hybrid turf pitches are used for elite competition worldwide, featured in the FIFA World Cup, Rugby World Cup, NFL and UEFA European Championships. With 75% of Premier League teams playing on GrassMaster hybrid pitches, the innovators of hybrid turf technology continue to lead from the front, with the new Gen-S technology providing clients with the confidence of 800+ proven installations, combined with improved stitching quality, fibre resilience and speed of installation.
Following the announcement of White Horse Contractors’ partnership with GrassMaster Solutions for hybrid turf construction, clients now have the opportunity to construct the most proven hybrid turf surface, all with the benefit of shorter, eco-friendly installation and enhanced natural grass protection.
