In the past decade, the popularity of indoor sports arenas hosting soccer, lacrosse, flag football, field hockey and many other sports teams have increased by 10 percent. It is now estimated by one account that there are more than 750 indoor sports facilities in the U.S alone.
These facilities fill the need for year-round practice and game facilities for sports played on synthetic turf. Synthetic turf is able to withstand continuous play, and most of these indoor sports arenas are operated from early morning to late in the evening. During the day, young children use indoor sports facilities, while high schoolers use them after school for practice and games. Eventually, the after-work adult groups take the field.
Sports Turf Northwest is dedicated to lessening and eliminating the health risks faced by everyone who use these indoor facilities. The sports activities that are played indoors are typically fast paced and have a high degree of athlete-to-athlete contact. Bodily fluids (blood, sweat, saliva, etc.) released from athletic participants are deposited into the synthetic turf. Turf burns caused by skin contact with the synthetic field are also quite common.
Staph infections occur when there is an opening in the skin and bacteria enters a cut or abrasion caused by turf burns or any other injury, whether on or off the field.
The miniZapr is the solution for sterilizing the artificial turf of indoor sports arenas. Based on germicidal UVC technology, the miniZapr destroys the DNA of harmful bacteria including Staph and MRSA. The amazing miniZapr provides indoor sports arenas the ability to protect the children, teens and adults who use indoor sports arenas with synthetic turf fields.
