From Innovation to Installation

At AstroTurf, we pride ourselves on adopting the latest innovations that result from research and development efforts.

Our R&D team and strategic partners extensively test all products and systems for durability, heat retention, UV degradation, color stabilization and a wide variety of biomechanical metrics. That includes measurements for traction, rotational resistance, impact absorption, surface stability and other athlete/surface interaction.

The integrity of AstroTurf and our products is preserved through a vertically integrated manufacturing process guided by 100% Quality Control, uncompromised from the factory to the field. All AstroTurf products are made in the USA, using the highest quality raw materials for all synthetic systems. From product development and testing to manufacturing and installation, we’re always on top of our game.

By definition, innovation is constantly changing. As the industry’s leading technology provider, our commitment to Research and Development is unparalleled. Staying on the cutting edge is no easy task.

We put our money where our mouth is! We don’t just have the world’s most advanced in-house turf laboratory, featuring all the crucial testing devices like Berlin Athletes, QUV machines, accelerated wear testers, and more. AstroTurf has invested millions of dollars to fund research into both synthetic turf and natural grasses at the University of Tennessee. UT’s Center for Athletic Field Safety is the world’s largest research facility devoted to sports turf. UT’s research informs our product development and propels AstroTurf’s systems ever closer to the gold standard — professionally maintained natural grass.
