Unique Terraflor Features
Terraflor has all the above benefits of Terraplas, being of the same design and covered by the same patents, however it also has some distinct advantages;
Storage - it requires approximately half the space
Transportation - approximately twice as many m2 (1,800) can be carried on a truck, therefore if the system was to be hired to a third party, the transport costs are halved
Laying & Lifting - it is 25% quicker
Labor - as it is approximately half the weight it is less tiring on labor
Overlaps - it overlaps, which is unique in turf coverings, therefore there are no gaps for rubbish & liquids to go through onto the turf
Expansion - it has more expansion capacity built into the system, therefore there is absolutely no buckling under extreme temperatures
Cleaning - it is much easier and faster to clean due to its smoother top and bottom surfaces
Patent - Terraflor works in exactly the same way as Terraplas and is covered by the same Patent, therefore it is a proven system
Lifespan - longer lasting than any other system
Price - it is approximately 30% less
Versatility - should a stadium that currently has natural turf ever decide to change to artificial turf, uniquely, Terraflor has been designed for protection of both natural and artificial turf, therefore the cover would not need to be changed
Safety - Safety is of paramount importance when large crowds are involved and Terraflor is the safest of all turf covers. The solid, totally interlocked floor ensures that there are no tripping hazards, as associated with other systems, and the top surface has an integral non-slip pattern.
Engineering - Terraflor uses exactly the same engineering principles and is covered by the same international patents as Terraplas.
Testing - Extensive testing, against all other available products, has been undertaken in the UK, Australia and the USA with regard to the suitability of Terraflor for covering high quality fields. Terraflor passed all these tests with 'flying colors' and proved to be the best system available.
AEG Home Depot Center (Carson, CA)
AEG's Home Depot Center is home to 2 MLS Teams, 'Los Angeles Galaxy’ and ‘C.D. Chivas USA', as well as being the national training center for US soccer.
"This is a move we anticipated (purchase of a Turf Protection System) when we were planning the Stadium [Home Depot Center] and have continued to research and test all of the alternatives on the market, until we determined that Terraflor would be the best product for us. Not only does Terraflor protect the Stadium grass better than any other product on the market, it locks together and overlaps, making a floor that is outstanding for our concert guests as well as a great work surface for the production and operations staff. The Terraflor system was put to the test this month with two sold-out concerts starring the Dave Matthews Band playing the Stadium for two nights, immediately following The Cure's appearance."
Lee Zeidman, Senior Vice President Operations for AEG Facilities (which oversees all of AEG’s Venues Worldwide)

Loading (on turf) - Point; 20mm x 20mm — 40kgs ( 3/4" x 3/4" — 87 lbs) Spread; 15cms x 15cms — 4000kgs (6" x 6"- 4 tons) Note: when the weight is spread correctly, using scaffold boards, mixing towers weighing in excess of 100 tons can be built on top of Terraflor.
Storage - Requirement 45m3 per 1000m2 (10,000ft2 requires 45 ft L x 7 ft 6 ins W x 4 ft 3 ins H).
Transportation - A 13.5 meter (45 foot) trailer or container will carry c. 1,800m2 (20.000 ft2).
Fire Regulations - Complies with all current Worldwide standards.
Method of Manufacture - High density polyethylene, injection molded using a blowing agent, which produces an engineering structural foam molding with a strength enhancing cellular core.
Design - Terraflor is designed to stop fluids and dirt passing to the field by using raised, specially designed breathing holes, plus each panel overlaps it’s adjacent panels — therefore there are no gaps.
Versatility - Designed for use with both natural and artificial turf fields.
Expansion Capability - Terraflor has inbuilt expansion capability of some 9mm per m2, which is considerably more than is required to avoid any lifting of the tiles due to expansion.
Patents - Terraflor is covered by the same patents as Terraplas as it works in the same way. It is merely a natural progression from the acclaimed Terraplas system, which has sold in excess of half a million square metres ( five million ft2) worldwide.
Fitting Times - A full system of 8.000m2 (80,000 ft2) will be fitted by 20 people in 6-8 hours and removed in 3-4 hours.
Life Expectancy - Terraflor is guaranteed for 2 years, but has a realistic life expectancy of over 15 years.
Warranty - Two Years on the panels (excluding camlocks).
Dimensions - Terraflor is manufactured in a 'tile' size of 75cms x 75cms (29.5 inches x 29.5 inches) which prior to leaving the factory are fastened together in blocks of six using quick release, patented nylon locking pins, allowing for fast fitting and expansion / contraction.
Installation - Each block of six tiles, measuring 2.25m x 1.5m (7ft 5.x5ft) when laid, attaches to its adjacent block of tiles by means of camlocks, which take fractions of a second to lock and unlock.
Safety - The solid, totally overlapping and interlocked floor ensures that there are no tripping hazards and it has an intergal non-slip surface.
Cleaning - The fastest method is with a high pressure jet washer.
