Karnes City, TX - Across the U.S., it’s not uncommon to see school graduations held outside under sunny skies. More often than not, the ceremonies are set up on the schools’ athletic fields, allowing them to accommodate large groups of proud family and friends.
Gatherings like these often require an investment in field protection. The wear and tear of pedestrian traffic can wreak havoc on a natural grass field and many synthetic turf manufacturers require turf protection as part of their warranties. The Karnes City Independent School District in Texas recently opted for Mastershield Lite turf protection flooring, which was put to the test at the Karnes City High School graduation held in late May. Strong and durable yet budget-friendly, 5,000 square feet of the turf protection mats were used to protect the school’s synthetic field.
The versatile grey turf flooring uses a Pivot-Lock system for a quick, tool-free installation and an even surface. Just as simple to remove, the interlocking panels are easy to handle and store. Made from a high-impact polypropylene, the diamond pattern creates a slip-resistant surface that is surprisingly easy to clean at the end of any event.
Renting a turf protection system can be a costly yet necessary expense. Investing in a turf protector such as Mastershield Lite can save money in the long run, and allow schools to transform their fields into multi-purpose venues.
