Mercedes-Benz Superdome Selects Act Global’s Synthetic Turf
As Louisiana’s premier sports and entertainment venue for the past 42
years, the stadium is rich in social and cultural history. It is best
known for hosting the New Orleans Saints, seven Super Bowls and the
annual college Allstate Sugar Bowl and New Orleans Bowl. In addition,
the historic Bayou Classic matching Southern University against
Grambling State University will be played on November 25. As such, the
Mercedes-Benz Superdome requires a turf surface that can meet the rigor
and performance demands of the top pro and college players.
The synthetic turf by Act Global is engineered and tested to offer a
superior playing surface for the players. This proven methodology
includes a wide range of quality and durability checks, biomechanical
measurements and surface testing. “Act Global is honored to have been
selected by such a well-respected organization,” comments Act Global CEO
John Baize. “We are impressed by the amazing professionals at the
stadium who demand the best for their teams. We are committed to staying
at the forefront of player safety and performance for the Mercedes-Benz
Superdome and all our clients. Every player is important and our purpose
is to serve their playing needs.”
Floor Systems® Products Achieve FloorScore® Certification
Action Floor Systems announces the FloorScore Certification of its
Action Solid Maple Hardwood Flooring and Action Herculan Pad and Pour
Systems, furthering the Action Floor Systems reputation of producing
FloorScore Certification is the most highly recognized indoor air
quality (IAQ) certification for hard surface flooring materials.
To become FloorScore Certified, SCS Global Services measures the levels
of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are emitted from a product. A
product must meet the VOC emission standards of the California Section
01350 Program and the SCS-EC 10.3-2014 IAQ Standard.
“FloorScore Certification proves that our products support indoor air
quality for our customers,” said Don Brown, Action Floor Systems
technical director. “FloorScore Certification supports our commitment to
green and healthier buildings. As building construction continues to
evolve, green building will become the norm, as will buildings that
provide a healthier environment.”
Lower VOC emissions contribute to healthier air and less indoor air
pollution. Good IAQ and low VOC levels are vital for schools and sports
facilities, and help to manage the effect of daily allergies that people
endure related to poor air quality.
FloorScore Certification was developed by SCS Global Services in
partnership with the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI), a trade
association of flooring manufacturers and supporters. FlooreScore
Certification qualifies for green building schemes such as LEED v4,
WELL, BREEAM, and CHPS.
Action Floor Systems®
Achieves Highest Level of EPD® Certification
Action Floor Systems, a manufacturer of maple sports flooring systems
and supplier of premium synthetic sports and commercial flooring
systems, recently achieved Environmental Product Declaration (EPD®)
certification on its maple sports flooring, becoming the first in its
industry to receive the highest level of certification.
EPD® is an independently verified certification that transparently
communicates the elements of a product and its effects on the
environment, from start to finish, throughout its life cycle.
To receive EPD® certification, a company must meet the requirements of a
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), industrywide Product Category Rules (PCR),
and International Organization Standards (ISO).
“Receiving a Proprietary EPD® certification reinforces Action Floors’
commitment to the environment and sustainable healthy building
initiatives,” said Don Brown, Action Floors technical director. “When
architects, facility managers, or dealers source products from our
company, they know they are getting a product with a responsible
SCS Global Services, a leader in third-party environmental and
sustainability certification and standards development, and the
University of Wisconsin-Madison conducted LCA studies on Action Floors’
maple hardwood systems. The studies were used to assess the
environmental and human health impacts of a product through all stages
of its life cycle.
The EPD® report discloses all the information required in ISO and PCR
and includes a complete description of the product, the LCA study and
its results, and any further environmental information a customer might
need for product sourcing. Customers who purchase products with EPD®
certification can also earn valuable LEED credits.
AstroTurf Growth Continues
2017 has been a tremendous year at AstroTurf. The year began with
AstroTurf uniting with ProGrass under the AstroTurf brand and it
continues with the company growing in every area of its business. This
growth has resulted in superior quality control, more crews, faster
response times and increased customer service. Three newly established
regional offices, a brand new and state of the art manufacturing plant,
and more than 100 new employees in the US (including 11 new regional
sales managers) have given AstroTurf a greater ability to meet their
customers’ needs. With an already record-setting year soon to be in the
books and even more resources at its disposal, AstroTurf is
well-positioned to have even greater success in 2018.
Sports Completes CarShield Field (MO) in Record Time
Despite a wet winter and early spring that eliminated construction for
nearly three consecutive weeks, ATG Sports completed the CarShield Field
project 10 days ahead of schedule on April 25, 2017. The project was
designed by Weis Design Group for the City of O’Fallon, Missouri and the
Frontier Leagues’ River City Rascals.
River City Rascals President Dan Dial states, "Not only did ATG complete
the project within our very tight window, but they did it while battling
several weeks of wet and soggy weather in which they were not able to
work at all at times. Because of these obstacles, ATG worked longer
hours and even weekends to make sure the job got done so our players
could get on the field for the start of spring training. They took time
away from their families so they could leave an indelible impression on
our team and community; they definitely did.”
CarShield Field features high performance RamTurf Baseball, which is
formulated specifically to mimic the play of a well maintained natural
baseball field. RamTurf Baseball is a high use product that combines
high face weight, UV resistant fibers, and the latest tufting
technology. RamTurf Baseball features parallel long fibrillated fibers
and dense texturizes fibers to provide an extremely durable turf that
optimizes ball roll and minimizes infill movement. The turf system
utilizes ArmorLoc 3L primary backing and Silverback secondary coating to
deliver the world’s strongest turf backing system. The complete system
will ensure the safest possible synthetic surface that looks and
performs like a well maintained natural field on its best day, every
day. See more at
Athletic Equipment installs new powder coating equipment
Blazer has recently expanded its production capabilities with the
purchase of a new powder coating system. By adding this capability, the
equipment manufacturer will be able to internalize all coating processes
and provide customers with added durability and faster turnaround time
on products. At 10’ wide, 10’ tall, and 20’ long, the booth and oven are
large enough to accommodate a wide array of athletic equipment.
Blazer Athletic Equipment is located in Fremont, Nebraska and its
manufacturing plant is located in Columbus, Nebraska.
Broce/TRS has built a prototype winding unit that would allow
contractors to roll up to 15 feet of cut rolls with the infill intact.
This would allow contractors to re-utilize larger width rolls on other
recreational surfaces. The new roller mechanism is designed to expand
the capability of the TRS Wrangler base unit fitted with the Winder
attachment. We plan to have this anticipated low cost option available
for the 2018 season.”
Chaminade College Preparatory School and Byrne & Jones Construction
Continue their Lasting Relationship with the Construction of New
As one of the top private high schools in the Midwest, Chaminade College
Preparatory School has always ensured that their students receive the
highest quality education through academics and athletics. To provide
their students with the best experience they can receive, Chaminade also
needs to be sure their facilities are state-of-the-art. This is why
Chaminade has trusted Byrne & Jones Construction with all of their
sports construction needs over the past 25 years.
In 1993, Byrne & Jones built Chaminade’s original running track. Since
then, we have successfully maintained the track with the retopping of
the structural spray wearing course. Just this past summer, Byrne &
Jones was called on yet again for the removal and replacement of the
original black mat & structural spray.
In 2009, Byrne & Jones built Chaminade’s first synthetic turf field just
North of their running track to be a stand-alone multipurpose field.
This became the main practice field for football, soccer, lacrosse, and
all other activities that Synthetic Turf is meant to uphold.
In 2016, Chaminade opted to further upgrade their athletic facilities
and put in place a plan to ensure all of their student athletes were
playing on top-quality synthetic turf surfaces. The first phase of this
project was to install a new multipurpose field. Byrne & Jones retrofit
the existing natural surface with a beautiful synthetic turf field
within the track that we built so many years ago, full with lines for
football, soccer, and lacrosse.
Needing to also cater to their baseball team, Chaminade’s second phase
of their athletic facility improvements began this summer B&J broke
ground on a new $2.5 million baseball stadium. The project includes
includes removing the old synthetic turf football field, installing a
15’ tall by 300’ long retaining wall, grandstand, press box, dugouts,
and the construction/expansion of new synthetic turf baseball field in
place of the existing practice field.
Byrne & Jones is extremely proud of the facilities and more importantly
the relationships that we have built with Chaminade over the course of
the past 25 years.

Har-Tru, LLC and NLS Lighting are Teaming Up
Har-Tru, LLC and NLS Lighting are teaming up to deliver NLS Lighting’s
VUE fixture to the tennis industry. VUE TENNIS is an innovative, LED
system that has been designed by a nationally- ranked, tennis player and
lighting engineer specifically for tennis. Har-Tru will start marketing
and selling the line immediately.
"This is an exceptional product," says Tracy Lynch, Har-Tru's Director
of Sales. "The VUE is achieving strong, uniform levels of light even at
ten feet above the court surface, and that is where the ball is
traveling much of the time. This just blows away anything we have seen
from other systems. Installation is easy as well. All you have to do is
take down the existing fixture (and sometimes the arm) and put a new one
up in its place."
Typical fixtures use LED’s that stick out below the bottom of the
fixture and are covered with a plastic lens. VUE Tennis recesses its
LED’s far into the housing and protects them with a single glass lens
significantly reducing glare and light loss. The system has a proven
track record with installations at many of the nation’s premier
facilities. It easily mounts to existing arms and comes with a 10-year
"We are constantly seeking product concepts that help create a better
place to play," commented Sandy Hunt, who manages Har-Tru's product
line. "That is why we are so excited about the VUE. It improves playing
conditions, reduces the cost of ownership for facilities, and is better
for the environment. It is not often we get a package like that to share
with our customers!"
"We are confident that Har-Tru is the right company to represent our
tennis line," says Bill Hein, President of NLS Lighting. "They are
extremely connected to the game of tennis, the courts and equipment, and
the player experience. They also have a team with a proven track record
of delivering product solutions that solve a need for their customers.
Placing VUE Tennis in their hands just makes sense."

Southern’s Baseball Facility Transformation
J. I. Clements Stadium is home to the Georgia Southern University Eagles
college baseball team and has been long known as one of the nicest
college baseball facilities in the country.
The stadium was renovated during the 2016–2017 offseason in preparation
of hosting the 2017 Sun Belt Conference Baseball Championship.
Improvements included the outfield wall being replaced with the
SportsEdge ChampionWall® with increased distance from home plate, the
old electronic scoreboard in left field was replaced with a video board,
a hand operated scoreboard was added in right field, and new synthetic
turf in the bullpens and foul territory.
The SportsEdge ChampionWall replaced the old fence to provide a
professional look to the park replacing the existing chain link system
and wind screen. The first thing you’ll notice when you enter the J. I.
Clements Stadium is the new 24-foot high “Blue Monster” wall in right
field. The Eagles idea of incorporating a manual scoreboard into the
Monster Wall really added to the nostalgic baseball feel.
ChampionWall is made from extruded PVC in the form of interlocking
panels. With ChampionWall there is no painting, no denting, no rust, no
rot, no tearing, and no windscreens to attach. For many years SportsEdge®
has led the way in identifying and responding to the needs of the sports
construction marketplace by designing and supplying revolutionary
products that improve the quality and aesthetics for sports facilities
of all kinds. SportsEdge is proud to be the exclusive distributor of

Sportsfield Adds Permanent
Filming Towers to Product Lineup
In 2017, Sportsfield Specialties, Inc. (SSI) introduced its first line
of permanent filming towers, which two NCAA Division I colleges quickly
took notice of. The University of Delaware purchased a 15’H SSI filming
tower to support video coverage of games and practices at Fred P. Rullo
Stadium, home of the 2016 NCAA Division I field hockey champions. Boston
College ordered two sets of 20’H and 10’H filming towers to be installed
at both their soccer and field hockey complexes.
The base plate mounted permanent structures are constructed with powder
coated steel and aluminum, providing more stability and safety than
portable towers or lifts that can fail in high winds. Standard SSI
Filming Towers are available with 4’ x 8’ and 6’ x 8’ platform
dimensions with elevations of 6’, 10’, 15’, and 20’. Each tower includes
a roof, picket railing with gate, and access by ships ladder or stairs.
All parts of the tower, from top to bottom, are designed, engineered and
manufactured by SSI.
At the University of Delaware, SSI worked on a tight schedule to
complete installation before a pre-season ceremony in mid-August. The
filming tower was powder coated with the custom hue, Blue Streak II,
which achieved a successful match to the well-known school color used by
the Blue Hens. In Boston, SSI added custom touches, such as drop-down
front railings, vinyl weather enclosures, and lockable doors at the base
of the towers to prevent unwanted entry.
SSI’s roster of standard filming towers, paired with their customization
abilities, helps the sports construction industry meet the demands of
athletic programs who embrace the digital era. Jake Newkerk,
Mid-Atlantic Regional Sales Manager at SSI explained, “Video review and
performance analysis are becoming the standard. SSI’s goal is to fulfill
the demand and offer equipment to capture elevated footage in a safe
