RootZone 3D Series
The 3D Series is AstroTurf’s most popular product line.
The 3D Series adds a RootZone® to basic infilled turf systems. The RootZone, a texturized layer of fibers that draw down to encapsulate infill, results in minimal rubber splash, better shock absorbency, and less infill migration than basic systems. The RootZone improves safety, playability, and durability, making 3D systems the top choice for athletes and field owners alike. Importantly, independently funded research by Michigan State University has shown the RootZone to reduce torque transmitted to lower extremities.
Other System Highlights:
- Manufactured with unmatched quality controls
- 3D Decade systems available with ten year, non-prorated warranties
- Multi-ply primary backing system for dimensional stability
- Polyurethane secondary backing system featuring optional soy-based BioCel™ technology
- Available with a range of infill options
- Also available in the RootZone 3D HD line, which offers denser configuration for enhanced durability and a more plush appearance
Uses the high micron monofilament fiber. This 365 micron fiber is AstroTurf’s thickest and most durable mono ever, reaching 150,000 Lisport cycles.
The slit film fiber is the workhorse of the synthetic turf industry. This proven fiber easily surpasses 150,000 Lisport cycles with minimal degradation.
RootZone 3D3 Blend
By combining three unique fibers in one system (RootZone, Trionic Monofilament, and ultra-durable slit film), RootZone 3D3 Blend offers both durability and aesthetics. This is AstroTurf’s most popular system.
|Product||Usage||RootZone||Infill Splash||Face Fibers||Aesthetics||Best Uses|
|RootZone 3DM||Light-Moderate||Yes (Nylon or PE)||Minimal||Monofilament||Excellent||Best for lightly used venues where aesthetics are important (TV)|
|RootZone 3DSF||Very Heavy||Yes (Nylon or PE)||Minimal||Slit Film||Good||Best for extremely heavy use (lots of hours, pushing sleds, indoor use)|
|RootZone 3D3 Blend||Heavy||Yes (Nylon or PE)||Minimal||Slit Film AND Monofilament||Great||Suitable for stadiums and practice fields|
|RootZone 3D3 Blend HD||Heavy||Yes (Nylon or PE)||Minimal||Slit Film AND Monofilament||Great||Suitable for stadiums and practice fields. Shorter and denser than 3D3, designed for use with pads and alternative infills.|
- Grass-like traction with reduced torque to lower extremities
- Less infill spray
- Consistent shock attenuation
- Improved durability
