Kobe Japan


Training pitch for children

After observing world's coolest pitch in the Netherlands, our partner in Japan realized that sports pitches do not exist only for playing sports. More importantly, especially for children, the artificial turf pitches are overheating these days due to the changing climate and hot summers in the Kobe region. They observed that the surface of conventional pitches sometimes cause young players to hurt themselves. With the BlueLay water retaining shockpad and Permavoid system we managed to cool down the temperature from 40.8 degrees to 23.9 degrees oC on an average summer day (trial set-up).

How we do it

Permavoid and BlueLay are a perfect match, combining superior water management and heat reduction. Permavoid's subsurface technology complements and water retaining capacity, BlueLay's cooling and drainage properties, resulting in an ideal solution for mitigating heat and enhancing water retention in sports fields and other applications. This synergy was applied to tackle heat island effects and create sustainable, comfortable environments.
