Smart Turf has launched a range of athletic turf products treated with Microban® for health and sports clubs, along with athletic arenas. The new product range offers the first athletic artificial turf product with built-in antimicrobial protection and was designed for businesses across the county looking for answers to heightened concerns around cleanliness and enhanced safety measures in fitness, sports, and athletic facilities.athletic turf

Smart Turf Athletic Turf is made with a proprietary, high-performance polyethylene which offers superb resiliency while remaining soft to the touch. The Microban antimicrobial technology is manufactured into the turf blades to provide permanent, built-in protection from the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew on the athletic turf.

“After identifying the lack of a similar product on the market in a time when health and sports club owners are looking for ways to instill public confidence around returning to their facilities, we felt strongly about expanding our partnership with Microban to include a built-in solution for this category,” said Duane Jensen, president of Catalina Home, parent company of Smart Turf. “The built-in antimicrobial technology is key in that it never washes off, works 24/7, and is active for the entire life of the athletic turf.”
