Liberty Hill, TX (Jan 3, 2023) – Hellas Construction will begin construction in February 2023 at Liberty Hill ISD’s third middle school, installing a new athletic field with a Matrix® Helix™ synthetic turf system, a Cushdrain® shock pad, and an epiQ Tracks® S200 running track. The new field will feature Hellas’ premiere synthetic turf system designed for superior athlete safety, and prolonged field performance.
The Matrix Helix turf system features corkscrew shaped monofilament fibers that are extremely stable and durable with shape memory technology that allow the fibers to bounce back after impact. The Helix technology also secures the infill to prevent migration and “splash-out” providing a uniform and aesthetically pleasing playing surface.
Below the surface, the field will include a Cushdrain shock pad which is an elastic layer paved in place over a laser-graded drainstone foundation. The Cushdrain provides planarity to the field, will hold its form throughout multiple turf life cycles and allows for better drainage of the field. Most importantly, the shock pad helps protect athletes from injuries caused by hard impacts with the surface.
The running track around the field will be resurfaced with epiQ Track S200, a porous, paved-in-place running track comprised of a bottom layer of polyurethane bound rubber granules topped with a spray-applied coat of one or two component polyurethane and EPDM granules. epiQ Tracks S200 is made of eco-friendly, non-petroleum-based materials.
