Shaw Sports Turf Sports Lab Innovation in business means changing to bring new value to customers. Shaw Sports Turf believes change and innovation are always necessary to create the products that mimic natural grass and provide the best performance characteristics. 


Shaw Sports Turf leads the synthetic turf industry in research and development and bringing innovation to the market.
With testing protocols and procedures that exceed those of even the most stringent independent labs, the Research and Development Center at Shaw Sports Turf is at the forefront of advancement.

The 75,000 square-foot laboratory is the largest and most expansive in the industry. The facility houses a “pilot” experimental manufacturing plant with narrow-width versions of the machines used in our manufacturing facilities. These machines give our R&D team the ability to run initial trials like no other turf company can. The equipment in the pilot plant is dedicated to tufting, twisting, texturizing, air entangling, coating and yarn development.


The R&D team also has access to a large turf performance lab featuring all the necessary equipment to test gmax, ball roll, ball bounce, rotational resistance, vertical deformation, force reduction, tensile strength, wear, abrasion, UV, weather effects and temperature effects. 


As a result of this commitment to research and development, Shaw Sports Turf’s products are considered the best the industry has to offer and gives customers peace-of-mind, knowing their athletic fields are state-of-the-art.
