Common Questions

Do we need a shockpad underlay beneath our gym turf?

Shockpad is recommended if you will be using the turf for body and weight training. It helps with shock absorption, cushioning impact and is softer on the body. Our shockpads are firm to work out on while providing just enough flex to reduce discomfort and the chances of injuries and strain.

Underlay is not recommended underneath sled strips as the sled can create creases in your turf over time. In this case, turf should be glued directly to the concrete foundations for strength.

Can sports turf be laid indoors?

Yes! Artificial grass is just like carpet, and can be laid indoors.  Most of our products have a D or E class fire rating, meaning that they can usually be used indoors.

Who will install the sports turf for me?

Our local SmartGrass franchisee will usually be the one to install your lawn. They are professional turf installers (it’s all they do).

How long does artificial grass last?

SmartGrass has a 10 year warranty, however in many applications it will last 15-20 years with regular maintenance. This is the same as our high performance sports turfs, which have up to 40 hours of use a week for 15 years.

Does artificial grass come in different colours? (blue, purple, etc.)

Yes! Artificial grass used for landscaping comes in various colours and heights of green. Coloured turf (blue, purple, red, white, and yellow) are common colours for sports turf, and custom orders can be manufactured.

Can you put heavy gym equipment on artificial turf?

Yes, all SmartGrass gym turf can withstand the weight of cardio and weight machines and equipment. If a large amount of the SmartGrass surface is covered with significant weight, you might need to move equipment around to brush the blades back up every couple of months to get the best lifespan out of the turf.
