Sportexe Questionnaire Responses

(Click here to download a PDF of these responses)

1. I sent a “Maintenance Guide” & “In-Fill Care Card” for your review via e-mail on 10/22/09.

2. There are no limits to the amount of time that a Sportexe field can be used & the durability will remain constant if you following the maintenance guidelines & properly clean any debris off the field. Refer to the Turf Tech information sheets & a 8 Year 3rd Party Insured Warranty brochure sent via e-mail on 10/22/09.

3. The estimated lifetime of the field will range from 8 to 12 years. However, this is a difficult question to answer because each field we install is situated in a different location, receive various UV & weather exposure, foot-traffic demands & maintenance care.

4. I sent a 8 Year 3rd Party Insured Warranty brochure via e-mail on 10/22/09 that explains the warranty period & the built in protection our clients receive throughout the warranty period.

5. The warranty only covers the manufactured & installed turf system. The base & drainage construction should be covered by the general contractor (unless otherwise negotiated with the contractor).

6. The cost to replace the turf system (only) in a 8 – 12 year period is difficult to project. However, based on historical trends in this industry, I would say $ 4.50/sqft would be an educated assumption (petroleum cost fluctations will dictate that ultimate cost of the turf system (turf & infill replacement).

7. Yes, refer to the “Life Cycle Recycle/ Reuse Strategy” information page sent for your review via e-mail on 10/22/09.

8. Yes, refer to the “Life Cycle Recycle/ Reuse Strategy” information page sent for your review via e-mail on 10/22/09. Furthermore, rubber & sand infill materials can be reused from the original installation of your field.

9. Yes, refer to the explanation found in the document entitled “Comments on Turf Surface Temperature” sent for your review via e-mail on 10/22/09.

10. Refer to all the ASTM – Volitile tests for fiber, rubber, sand, backings etc. sent for your review via e-mail on 10/22/09.

11. The risk of bacteria & mold growth is minimal as there are know organics found in our turf system but if the infill is contaminated with organic debris (example: pine needles, leafs etc.) or lack of regular grooming/ debris sweeping, then the potential for growth might occur (weeds etc.).

12. Refer to reports in e-mail # 7 sent for your review via e-mail on 10/22/09 (see attached).

13. To reduce the risk of infill materials migrating off the field, purchase a heavy face weight (turf fiber) turf product, refer to “Fiber Density” & the Momentum “Specs & Product” data reports sent for your review via e-mail on 10/22/09.

14. The turf industry has used first generation slit-tape fibers & sand rubber infill for 25 years. We are all now manufacturing & installing fourth generation slit-tape fibers (sand rubber infill). This new generation is more durable, has a 10 year UV Package & stays more elastic throughout it’s life-cycle. Refer to “Strenexe” fiber in the Momentum spec & data sheets sent for your review via e-mail on 10/22/09.

I hope this information helps your team in their assessment & research.
