AGRU America announces new webinar: ClosureTurf 101



[Georgetown, South Carolina, March 4, 2018—] With a 50% faster installation rate, an 80% reduced carbon footprint, and a 90% reduction in annual maintenance costs per acre each year, ClosureTurf has built a reputation of excellence as a proven final closure solution. To introduce ClosureTurf to a wider audience, AGRU America has partnered with Watershed Geo, the makers of the patented product, to provide ClosureTurf 101. This new crash course webinar is designed for engineers and includes all the essentials to understand how ClosureTurf is made, its applications and benefits, and how engineers can begin working with the product.

AGRU America, Inc. is a subsidiary of AGRU GmbH, an Austrian family-owned business since 1948 with production facilities in Austria, the United States, Germany, China, and India. AGRU products are distributed in over 80 countries worldwide.

ClosureTurf®, a Watershed Geo patented product, is a final cover system comprised of AGRU’s Super Gripnet® or MicroSpike® geomembrane overlain by an engineered synthetic turf and specified infill material. It is a proven “hybrid” composite closure system that outperforms earlier closure methodologies and is the only system that provides a predictable level of performance when subjected to severe weather conditions that occur in a post-closure timeframe. Based on several years of real-world experience on over 1000 acres of installation, and extensive university and ASTM lab evaluations, the ClosureTurf system has shown to have a leakage rate over 40 times less than Subtitle D prescriptive and an erosion loss of over 100 times less than subtitle D prescriptive cover.
