The Wheeler School
The Wheeler School wanted to build a new synthetic turf field on their remote athletic campus which is adjacent to the upper watershed of Runnins River. It was important that the infill selected not negatively affect the downstream water quality. It was also critical that the infill was not be difficult to maintain or create a burden that would take the focus away from maintaining the other 7 natural fields on campus.
The Wheeler School took a hard look at 7 infill options and narrowed the decision to Envirofill and Safeshell. Ultimately, Safeshell was selected because it was a natural product that was ideal for the field location adjacent to a nature preserve and was required much less maintenance than the other natural infills.
