Turf Shield & Turf Shield Arctic


When your tees and greens need faster spring green-up or face heavy winter weather, protect them against the elements with Turf Shield or Turf Shield Arctic turf covers. Both choices allow facilities to control the environment at ground level. We manufacture these solutions in standardized and custom sizes along with upgrade options for strength, durability, and convenience.

Turf Shield Benefits


Turf Shield allows the turf to breathe and retain its moisture while letting sunlight through. The result of this greenhouse effect is a reduced risk of winter kill, faster spring growth and deeper root penetration.

ALLOWS SUNLIGHT THROUGH

The translucent weave creates tiny little prisms, multiplying and reflecting light throughout the weave, increasing light penetration and thermal properties.

RETAINS CRITICAL MOISTURE

The weave of Turf Shield covers allow for a controlled open space which keeps moisture in the turf layer while shedding excess moisture from rain, snow/ice melt-off.

CONTROLS AIRFLOW

The same weave also controls the amount of air that moves through the material.  The effect protects turf health and allows the turf to breathe.

Turf Shield Arctic


A SECONDARY THERMAL LAYER

The Turf Shield Arctic variation adds a layer of non-woven, high-loft polyester as an additional level of protection. This addition creates a larger void area for greater air flow and thermal control.

 

WIDE PRODUCT WIDTHS

The Turf Shield Arctic layer is manufactured in 90" widths, to minimize seams and simplify installation. The standard length is 150' with a shipped roll size of 1,125 square feet.
