LigaTurf® HB260

Ligaturf HB260

Exclusive Qualiback ‘Hybrid Emulsion’ secondary backing for superior seam strength.

Safety: Proplay modular shock pad layer for sports performance absorption and fall height.

Optional Patented System: Drainage cell layer under shock pad & synthetic turf eliminates all infrastructure required in base construction.

Recycled SBR granule infill and latest EPDM technology and kiln dried silica sand stabilising infill.

Functionality: Infill ratio 6-parts sand to 1-part rubber is designed for the sand to stabilise and firm the grass system to take advantage of the performance characteristics of the shock pad. The lower SBR infill content reduces heat build-up and surface radiation.

Product design: 60mm pile height combination of fibrillated tape for durability and monofilament for resilience.



The best value AFL playing surface suitable for all levels of play. HB260 is also suitable for Rugby and Soccer.

 Force Reduction

Force reduction evaluates a surface's ability to reduce impact force. This mostly relates to impacts generated by lower extremities, for example an athlete running. Our sport surfaces offer greatly reduces tissue damage, joint impact and sports related injuries and player fatigue.

 Energy Return

With a high force reduction your sports surface will also provide you with a high energy return, this helps players play long and reduces recover times.

 Patented Drainage Cell System

Our football turf system is designed to be incorporated with the unique and innovative rigid flow cell which ensures vertical drainage to a horizontal cell reservoir allowing water to be channeled laterally to a perimeter storm water system. The investment benefit removes all drainage infrastructure under the field that will encounter differential settlement over time. This strong focus on system development provides confidence for our clients.

 ProPlay Shockpads

Performance benefits of the underlying Proplay shock pad incorporate shock absorption with drainage capabilities meeting critical fall height measures for all ages and standards of play.


 COOLplus Technology

All LigaTurf systems feature proprietary infrared-reflective COOLplus® sports yarn technology. Our proprietary COOLplus® yarn technology does not absorb infrared rays, translating into less molecular vibration and cooler surface temperatures. Studies show COOLplus® surface temperatures are consistently 10-20% lower than the competitive systems. The result is better player comfort and reduced need for irrigation!

 Entanglement Technology

The 'Entanglement Technology' in the COOLplus® sports fibre interlaces the molecular chains in the turf fibre into a three dimensional shape. The result is an exceptionally soft surface and greater protection against splicing with optimum playing properties and a considerably longer lifespan.
