Every UBS panel is made with the environment in mind. Millions of pounds of recycled materials are utilized annually reducing landfill waste and decreasing our carbon footprint. You have our word on it.

Sub Base for Artificial Grass & Turf

Simply put, Ultra Base is the best material for creating a sub base for artificial grass and synthetic turf construction projects. Our systems cut installation time by approximately 40% while reducing the need for heavy construction equipment. With Ultra Base, you complete more installations, more safely, with less damage to the environment.

Ultra Base panels are a better option than traditional aggregates like crush miscellaneous base (CMB), Class II road base, and decomposed granite/limestone chippings for several reasons. Ultra Base panels offer a stable foundation base system for your artificial grass, while traditional aggregates can shift and settle over time, causing unevenness in the surface. Ultra-Base panels have been rigorously tested and developed to meet the unique needs of synthetic turf installations, including superior water drainage. Ultra-Base panels provide excellent drainage capabilities due to the patented design, which allows water to filter into the ground or run horizontally through the panel’s exterior drain ports.

Ultra Base panels are easier and quicker to install than traditional aggregates, which requires a significant amount of labor and time to prepare and compact the surface before laying the artificial grass. In contrast, Ultra Base panels can be easily assembled and installed, saving time and reducing labor costs.

Overall, Ultra Base panels offer superior stability, drainage, and ease of installation compared to traditional aggregates, making them a better sub base material for artificial turf.

Less Time = Less Labor = Less Cost

Plus, Ultra Base works better than traditional 4” rock bases.
