Built On-site Turf Surfacing Systems
BOSS by Ecore is a line of surfaces engineered for spaces ranging from playgrounds to outdoor courts and fields.
The initial launch of BOSS, an acronym for Built On-Site Surfaces, consists of two turf systems engineered for both indoor and outdoor fields: BattleTurf and ClashTurf. Both are designed to be constructed on the job site.
BattleTurf is specifically designed for high-impact sports environments. The unique woven pattern of the turf surface reduces infill splash, provides superior playability and durability, and decreases rotational resistance, says Ecore, while the 12-millimetre shock pad absorbs force resulting in reduced body impact and lower leg stress. BattleTurf meets specifications for competitive field hockey, lacrosse and soccer fields, and can easily be customized with field lines and logos. What’s more, the use of a polyolefin coating on the backing of the turf makes it fully recyclable at the end of its useful life.
A competitive sports surface for indoor and outdoor athletic fields, ClashTurf requires infill and is extremely durable due to the higher face weight. With a natural look and feel, it offers excellent drainage and is well-suited for football, soccer and multipurpose fields. ClashTurf also features a 12-millimetre shock pad that provides added safety characteristics to the playing field related to force and impact reduction.
These new systems add a whole new category to Ecore’s portfolio. The company plans to expand the BOSS line later this year, with two poured-in-place rubber surfacing systems that have various levels of thickness for play zones and areas where fall safety is a priority.
