ProGreen is proud to introduce a new, non-perforated backing that will drastically affect the drainage efficiency of our turf products. As with all ProGreen products, they will continue to be made with polyethylene yarn, which does not hold moisture the way that nylon fibers do. With the new patent-pending ProFlow™ backing that increases the drainage rate by approximately 400% and our moisture resistant fibers, the turf will be cleaner, drier and free from any unpleasant pet odors.
“PROFLOW” No perforations! Drains through the whole backing.
How does it drain without the perforations?
The ProFlow backing is comprised of four different layers: two heavy gauge woven layers, one five pick layer and then a final coating of a high viscosity polyurethane compound. Before this compound is applied to the turf, it is injected with air. These air bubbles create passages that allow for free flow drainage.
Will the air bubbles become smaller over time, causing problems with drainage?
No! This patent-pending backing was designed and created to last the lifetime of the turf and eliminate the drainage problems commonly seen over time as particles clog the perforations. Finally, you will have a percolation rate that stays consistent throughout the life of the turf system.
Does it require any special installation tools or techniques?
No, there is no change in the installation procedure.
