Sports Artificial Grass for Athletics Track
Synthetic athletic tracks made a major debut in the late 60s at the Mexico City Summer Olympics. Although synthetic track systems had been in development before then (mainly consisting of a mixture of asphalt and sand), these new polyurethane surfaces revolutionized the industry. Now synthetic tracks are the most common type of track installed around the world and have become the standard for major competitions.
Advantages of Synthetic Tracks
There are a few reasons why synthetic tracks became so popular so quickly. Runners and athletes like them because they offer good shock absorption, like grass and dirt tracks do, but they also do not make runners lose speed, as soft natural surfaces do. There is enough give to allow for comfortable running, but an underlying firmness that prevents a loss of speed. This quality has earned synthetic tracks the reputation for being “fast tracks.” These surfaces also offer good traction, even in inclement weather, which is not the case with natural surfaces that change depending on the weather. This all-weather quality made training and competition more consistent, allowing athletes to pursue uninterrupted training for longer periods of time despite the changing of the seasons.
