Miami Dolphins select organic infill, name Hellas an official partner

April 17, 2018  - By

Hellas Construction will install its Matrix Turf with Helix Technology and its exclusive organic infill at the Miami Dolphins’ indoor practice facility at the Baptist Health Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University. The Dolphins are the first NFL team to go with organic infill for their synthetic turf fields. The team also named Hellas Construction as an official partner of the Miami Dolphins.

“We are excited to work with Hellas Construction on this new turf installation. The organization has a track record of great service and we look forward to practicing on this surface in the near future,” the Miami Dolphins shared in a statement. “The organic infill from Hellas is the premium organic alternative to black crumb rubber. This organic combination of cork and coconut, when combined with silica pea gravel and Matrix Helix Turf, will stay put with less “splash out.”

“Our organic infill plays a lot more like natural grass. The infill and turf fibers will interweave, so when the athletes step on the turf, it will leave a cleat imprint like a natural grass field does,” said Hellas President and CEO Reed J. Seaton.

The organic infill from Hellas has optimal shock absorption and excellent control in all weather conditions, ensuring fast play and quick shoe release for the highest level of sports performance that is comparable to a high-quality, natural grass field, the company said.

It is 100 percent organic, recyclable and UV resistant, resisting break down and deterioration even at high temperatures. This odorless infill doesn’t retain heat, but instead retains moisture, using it to cool the surface temperature of the field. Surface temperatures on a synthetic turf field with the Hellas organic infill will be up to 40 degrees cooler than a regular synthetic turf field with the black crumb rubber, according to Hellas.

“The Matrix Turf fibers are helix or twisted, so they will spring back up. This prevents the fibers from getting matted or lying flat, keeping the infill securem,” Seaton said.

The Matrix Turf with Helix Technology consists of twisted fibers of two different colors, creating a more natural looking, lush surface with enhanced playability.
