Consistently maintaining flawless standards of natural grass suitable for international class sporting is very difficult to achieve. The other challenge the curators face is getting a stadium ready after a short spell of rain.
However, these are a thing of the past. The next generation turf conditioning technology from SubAir ensures a healthy field, ready for uninterrupted play at any time of the year. SubAir Systems LLC designs and manufactures sub-surface airflow systems for sports field and golf course applications. It is a tool and process method that helps to create and maintain the optimum subsurface growing environment for grass.
The patented two-way airflow SubAir system offers the benefits of both pressure and vacuum modes. In the vacuum mode, it enables rapid water evacuation from the surface, thereby draining any standing water and thus restoring the surface to an optimal playing condition. Conversely, the pressure mode creates a movement of air upwards through the profile for soil aeration which helps with the growth of grass and roots. The warming and cooling of air can be achieved through hydronics.
SubAir provides drainage and conditioning mechanism for the playing surface of all grass-based sports like Cricket, Golf, Baseball, and Rugby and has over 500 installations around the world.

How SubAir Works
We offer unparalleled next-generation natural turf conditioning system for golf courses. Black layer, variation in temperature, excessive thatch, and turf diseases are some of the golf course challenges. Here's a solution to all such problems- the SubAir System. The SubAir System products specifically engineered for golf courses provide both aeration and vacuum powered drainage for the turf, resulting in world-class healthy turf! In addition to that, the TurfBreeze, the specialized fan, increases transpiration of the turf, cooling the plant internally and keeping it healthy. TurfBreeze fans can be used to evaporate excess moisture produced by the morning dew. These fans have shown to improve the quality of shaded greens.
