Artificial grass

Groz-Beckert offers the complete product range

Demand for artificial grass has grown steadily all over the world in the past few years. In addition to the rapid growth in the traditional application fields in the sports sector – football, hockey, rugby, tennis, golf and mini golf – artificial grass has also increased in popularity in the field of landscaping and multifunctional spaces in public areas.

In addition to the leading producers of artificial grass, Groz-Beckert supplies all major machine builders with gauge parts for the initial equipment of tufting machines used in artificial grass production. One reason for this is without a doubt the SAN® S-needle, which stands out in particular due to its unmistakable point and eye design which offer distinct advantages over standard needles:

  • Penetration force reduced by up to 40%
  • Increased machine speed
  • Reduced thread breakage
  • Minimal damage to the backing fabric due to the double layer primary-backing
  • Improved product quality
