In 2010 Van Dyck and Tiger Turf launched new products in their comprehensive Leisure Range, from the cost-effective Terrace Turf to Vision – which is claimed to be the only synthetic turf to have patented technology using recycled materials.
Early in 2011 Van Dyck broadened its offering to the artificial turf market by making some unique changes to the existing lineup, while including three new products – Finesse, Fresco and Golf Putt Multi – offering the high levels of quality and performance associated with the brand.
This cost-effective short-pile product is mainly used in the domestic market and is very suitable for general applications such as gardens, landscaping, terraces, patios, balconies, entertainment areas, change rooms and other multi-purpose applications. This product is made of 100% TenCate-branded fibrillated polypropylene.
Multi Play 24 (New December 2011) an all-rounder designed to be a budget-friendly option for multi-sport applications such as Hockey, Tennis, Five-a-side Football, Netball and Cricket. The ruggedness of this product makes it suitable for any landscape application from residential to commercial. Manufactured from 100% polyethylene fibrillated yarn.
This product has a pile height of 24mm and is low-maintenance and a good all-rounder, primarily used as a budget-friendly solution for domestic applications such as gardens, landscaping, terraces and similar multi-purpose applications. This product is made of 100% TenCate-branded polyethylene and because of its construction it is recommended to use a sand infill.
Finesse is a best-value-for-money product that is both hardwearing and highly practical which is why it can be used for domestic, civil and commercial applications. It is made of a combination of texturised and straight polyethylene monofilament fibres, and by combining two different yarn colours this product shows a natural-looking surface.
This highly innovative and unique artificial turf is a natural-looking landscaping product that not only offers fantastic aesthetic appeal, but has the added benefit of being more environmentally friendly as it utilises a fully recycled polyester yarn in combination with a monofilament polyethylene yarn. This combination of two different yarn colours together with the unique shape of the yarns gives this product a very natural look and structure.
Vision V2 is ideal for any upmarket domestic, civil or commercial landscaping application and the product of choice for anyone that cares about the environment, as this is reputed to be the first and only synthetic turf that is made of recycled bottles (from landfill to landscape) by means of groundbreaking and patented technology.
Golf Putt/Multi rounds off the range of Landscape products by offering a professional putting surface suitable for residential, commercial and sports club applications. The sporting lineage of this product ensures its high performance for multi-purpose sport applications such as Hockey, Netball and training areas.
All the above products are provided with a long-term guarantee subject to the correct installation and continual maintenance of the surface.
While Landscape and Leisure Turf have proved to be successful, Van Dyck has gone one step further in the South African market by including a comprehensive selection of turf products from the Tiger Turf Sports offering.
Tiger Turf and Van Dyck have products on offer for all sporting applications that require turf, such as Hockey, Rugby, Football, Tennis, Bowls, Golf and Multi-Purpose activities, all differentiated by each product having been tested by FIFA, ITF, FIH, IRB & RFU.
The introduction of all sporting turf has already begun to spill over into other areas; more and more residential, commercial hospitality and corporate clients are including putting “chill areas” in landscape applications, while synthetic five-a-side soccer fields are becoming increasingly popular with clubs and communities alike.
Van Dyck and Tiger Turf also continue to show their commitment to the South African Rugby Legends Association (SARLA), which is a group of ex-Springbok and Provincial rugby players that have formed a charitable trust. The initial purpose of the trust is to raise funds for the development of rugby at grass roots level. For every square metre of carpeting sold in South Africa Van Dyck makes a contribution to this trust.
While selling artificial turf is hot business at present, Van Dyck and Tiger Turf are driven not only to supply quality products best suited for their designed application, but also to ensure that professional pre- and post-sales technical support and advice are provided, ensuring optimum performance and satisfaction, coupled with the product’s increased life expectancy.
These ranges are also environmentally friendly as they do not require any watering, no mowing and no fertilisers, whilst being versatile and durable enough for applications ranging from residential, commercial, multi-purpose and sport.
Tiger Turf and Van Dyck stay committed to delivering the latest trends of Landscape and Sports Turf to the South African market.
