The CTS system is RSI’s response to more sustainable sports surfaces and desire for hybrid pitches. This Circular Turf System has been designed to be a less demanding in terms of precious resources like water and to enable quick installation or removal of a quality sports field.
CTS combines multiple innovations that reflect RSI’s approach towards sustainable and quality sports surfaces. It uses the Base Panel shockpad to provide a field with the adequate conditions for an optimum game experience. The springy characteristics also contribute to a field that is less demanding for the joints and muscles of players and officials.
The Base Panels shock absorbing layer is placed on a special IPD film that is best-known as the protective translucent layer that prevents cars from heating up from excessive sunlight during summer. In the RSI CTS systems this film prevents loss of heat contained in the subbase. Hybrid turf fields benefit because a warm subbase stimulates the growth of the root zone and the development of the grass surface
RSI can provide a CTS field with a hybrid of full artificial turf surface.
Faster and better subbases
A Base Panel shock absorbing layer on top of an IPD film prevents the need for excessive groundworks prior to installing a quality synthetic turf or hybrid sports field.
Where usually the top 50 cm of soil is replaced by special drainage sand to prevent the subbase from freezing up in the winter, an RSI CTS field requires the working of only the top 5 cm of the surface. This speeds up the entire installation process and reduces the number of trucks to and from the site from several hundred to only a few. This reduction will help to achieve significant CO2 savings and improve the overall safety on-site and in the neighboring areas.
It also makes the installation process less dependent on the availability of bulk materials that have to be shipped in from afar. With adequate planning, an RSI CTS field can be installed in a matter of days. As the construction of this concept is less dependent on good weather conditions, it can even be installed during the football or rugby season.
By the time the RSI Circular Turf System has come to the end of its economic life-span, all that is required is to replace the artificial turf carpet or top grass layer to continue benefiting from a quality and lasting sports surface.
