Sports Turf Company Completes Athletic Facility Renovations at Three Gwinnett County Public Schools
Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce the completion of three Gwinnett County High School artificial turf field renovations and running track renovations. This project is the third set of high school facilities awarded to Sports Turf Company at Gwinnett County Public Schools.
The three Gwinnett County projects include:
- Archer High School in Lawrenceville.
- Mountain View High School in Lawrenceville.
- North Gwinnett High School in Suwanee.
“Once again, Sports Turf has provided exceptional facilities for our student athletes along with our community,” Gwinnett County Schools Athletic Director Ed Shaddix said. “Sports Turf has always positioned themselves as a proponent of safer, higher performing and more durable surfaces, and they continue to deliver on that promise. We’re excited to watch how these newly renovated stadiums propel our athletic programs forward.”
In 2019, Sports Turf Company completed the artificial turf field renovations for South Gwinnett High School and Duluth High School. Sports Turf Company completed the renovations of both Dacula High School and Mill Creek High School artificial turf fields in 2020.
Sports Turf Company renovated all three high schools’ existing natural grass fields to artificial turf that surpass other systems in terms of safety, durability and performance. The artificial turf system features AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 Decade turf system, Brock SP Series shock pad and the organic infill, BrockFILL. RootZone 3D3 Decade is a performance artificial turf system that combines slit film and monofilament fibers with a RootZone layer of texturized fibers for optimum durability and shock absorbency. The Brock shock pad technology is specifically engineered to optimize athletes’ safety during impacts to its surface. BrockFILL is a wood particle infill specifically designed to improve traction and reduce artificial turf heat. BrockFILL is the latest in alternative infills and is sustainably grown and harvested in Georgia.
In addition, the existing track surfaces at North Gwinnett High School and Archer High School were removed and repaved with Rekortan B synthetic track surfacing. Mountain View High School’s track received patches to extend the lifetime of the existing running track. Rekortan B, the single-layer 13 milimeter paved-in-place track system, is a durable and economical solution for high schools.
“We’re honored to continue our long-standing relationship with Gwinnett County Schools,” Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins said. “The school system places a great importance on their athletic programs, and we are excited to continue to provide them with the best of the best.”
