On the heels of a successful World Cup tournament for Team USA, the excitement for soccer here in the United States is greater than ever. We are pleased to share with you a recent home soccer field constructed by one of our new UltraBaseSystems® Florida dealers in Cape Coral, Florida utilizing UltraBaseSystems® Champion panel. This 44×86 ft, 650 UBS panel, non-filled turf field is the home training site for the client’s children and their USA Jr. coach.
Standard operating procedure for creating a stable sub base:
- Proper Fill Material
- Grading to Perfection
Geo-stabilization fabric is installed over the sub base and the panel installation begins.
In no time at all the panels are installed and ready for turf.
This foam and felt-backed, non-filled turf is installed over the panels using a temporary geo slip sheet. Once this slip sheet is removed the turf is seamed and locks in place on the patented turf barbs.
The techniques used to create a full-size pitch were implemented in this mega home project. The choice of utilizing foam and felt-backed, non-filled turf allowed the homeowner the choice of a non-filled turf that would lock to the panels due to the patented UBS turf barbs. The end result is a super safe, high quality, world-class field in the privacy of the homeowner’s backyard.
We wish to express our sincere thanks to Bill Collins and Putters Edge for sharing with us this amazing achievement. The attention to the smallest detail by these highly-skilled technicians makes all of us very proud. You can see more of Bill’s work at www.pesofla.com or call (727) 741-1190. As the reputation of UltraBaseSystems® continues to explode around the world, we invite you to see just why UBS is becoming the clear base replacement choice of synthetic turf installers around the world.
“I have just had the opportunity to see a beautiful, small-sided (futsal) field in Cape Coral, Florida. This is a beautiful field and is a terrific example of innovations to encourage more children play the beautiful game. Whether in a backyard or in an urban environment, these safe fields will allow more free play and create better players. The best part of this field is the ease of installation. Built on UltraBaseSystems® Champion panels and topped with non-infill artificial turf, a field can be installed in a very brief time frame. With this kind of field I see many, many more kids playing for the love of the game.”
