SYNTipede 321, SYNSport, and SYNLawn® Classic Pitch together form the safest playground flooring solution for Frisco ISD’s 45 new playgrounds.
These three artificial grass solutions provide enhanced safety features, ultra-realism, exceptional durability, incredibly low maintenance, and are some of the most eco-friendly synthetic grass options available.
These one-of-a-kind Austin artificial turf products all feature our EnviroLoc™ backing system which utilizes recyclable materials locally sourced here in the US. Not only does it provide optimal drainage, but it helps to extend the life of our playground turf installations by locking-in turf fibers and preventing the turf from shedding, tearing, and shifting on impact.
In addition, our playground turf systems are ADA compliant. Our turf won’t shift on impact and wheelchairs can easily maneuver across them.
We also go the extra mile to ensure that our playground systems are ASTM Class A fire-rated for additional safety at every installation. This increases the time interval between when a fire erupts and the arrival of first responders, potentially minimizing damage and allowing more time for students and faculty to evacuate safely.
SYNTipede 321 utilizes our exclusive Super Yarn™ technology that features three molecularly bound enhancements including:
- Sanitized® Antimicrobial - eliminates 99% of bacteria from turf surfaces and prevents mold and bacterial growth
- DualChill™ IR Reflective Technology - inhibits the absorption of infrared light that causes fading
- StatBlock™ Anti-Static - prevents the buildup of static electricity from the turf surface to provide safer
Super Yarn™ is a first-of-its-kind technology not found in competing synthetic turf products. As a result, SYNLawn™ is the only company to present a fifth-generation turf product to the market. In addition, SYNTipede 321 features a USDA certification stating its high percentage of biobased content. These USDA certifications are also an industry-first achievement.
When designing a commercial playground, safety is always at the top of the priority list. These three products, proudly boast IPEMA and ASTM 1292 certifications to protect against falls up to 10 feet as well as prevent a variety of other common injuries that may occur during playtime. For increased safety and comfortability, both SYNSport and Classic Pitch feature our revolutionary HeatBlock™ technology which substantially reduce surface temperatures, making them the coolest artificial grass Austin has to offer. We work in partnership with US farmers to manufacture our products using soybean oil and sugar cane to significantly reduce petroleum-based polymers and create the most environmentally friendly synthetic turf in the industry. These Austin playground turf options are perfect for active children and high foot traffic areas, meaning no matter how much they play, they won’t be able to tear through our tarnish the turf surface ensuring beauty and minimal maintenance all year long. In addition, UV stabilized yarns protect the grass from fading regardless of sun exposure. Our products are also backed by an unmatched limited lifetime warranty.
