Regis University

Project Overview

Motz provided the 100% natural, Safeshell infill for two multi-sports playing fields at Regis University. Regis University is the first University in Colorado to use Safeshell, which makes Regis University’s turf fields one of a kind.

Safeshell is a 100% natural, hypoallergenic infill made from walnut shells and with an inherent cooling technology to keep artificial turf cool even on hot dry days. Safeshell is a game-changer in the turf industry due to it being low-maintenance, long-lasting, and safe for athletes and the environment. Safeshell is biodegradable and has an 8-year warranty providing not only remarkably high-performing sports turf fields for athletes and the environment but also creating a value-driven investment for colleges like Regis University.

The Situation

Regis University was looking to update its multi-purpose field. They were looking for infill that would protect the turf field surface and playability. The safety and performance of Regis University’s multi-purpose sports fields were important in the decision-making process.

Safeshell provided a natural, safe, and low-maintenance infill that would keep this multi-purpose field functioning for years to come. A unique feature of this multi-purpose field was a landscape artificial turf was installed between the two fields to serve as a distinction between the fields and play surface. Safeshell was used for this distinctive line of landscape artificial turf.

The Play

This project consisted of two multi-sports playing fields at Regis University.

Site construction started with an excavation of the subbase to prepare for the drainage system. Once the base course was built, a Schmit Pro-Play shock pad was installed and the dual fiber sports turf, by Academy Sports Green Fields, was laid on top.

These two turf fields were joined together. To separate these two multi-sports turf fields, landscape artificial turf was installed between the two fields to serve as a distinction between the play surfaces.

Motz, natural high-performance, low maintenance infill, Safeshell was poured over the turf to keep the turf in place. Safeshell is a 100% natural, hypoallergenic infill made from walnut shells and with an inherent cooling technology to keep artificial turf cool even on hot dry days.

Lastly, the Regis University logo and sporting lines were incorporated into the field.

While still in our break in timeline this field has received high marks for multiple sports on the way it performs and how balanced the pure roll of the ball is for soccer. Our Lacrosse team is extremely happy with the field performance. After three months the field still projects great balance when the players perform on it. I have installed eight artificial high performance fields in my career and this is the best one yet with the infill portion. We also feel safer with our athletes playing on a sustainable safe field.
