Fields of Dreams
As a national synthetic turf field builder, building fields is a labor of love for A-Turf. So, building the fields at Diamond Nation, a baseball and softball tournament and training facility in New Jersey was love—times six. Spanning more than 531,000 square feet, the project called for a half-dozen A-Turf® fields. Each A-Turf field is engineered specifically for the unique demands of baseball and softball—delivering consistent ball bounce and roll. Designed with slight modifications to the fiber pile height and the rubber and sand infill mix, the fields replicate natural grass while providing optimal play in any weather conditions.
Maximize Your Track
Standing water can damage a track’s synthetic surface and shorten its performance life, particularly in freeze-thaw climates. An effective drainage system quickly removes rainfall and can create a barrier against runoff from surrounding areas, which often brings damaging sediment and debris with it. ACO Sport offers a wide range of track drainage systems, featuring straight and radius channels with a variety of covers to meet the design and budget requirements of any athletic facility from high schools to IAAF tracks.

Pictured is a rain-permeable synthetic turf athletic field being installed using NORDOT® Adhesive from Synthetic Surfaces Inc. The white NORDOT® Adhesive is being airless-sprayed on a black shock-absorbent and rain-permeable subsurface before synthetic turf is unrolled onto it for bonding. The entire system remains porous because of the design and spray characteristics of the NORDOT® Adhesive.
