Artificial turf surfaces were originally manufactured for purely commercial uses on sports fields such as football pitches and sports stadium, they had a short pile height and they were somewhat abrasive often causing injuries to players similar to that of carpet burn.
These original surfaces required an infill; usually sand, the modern day equivalent now commonly uses recycled rubber. These surfaces are often incorrectly referred to as AstroTurf, although this was the name and trademark of an in particular brand.
The main benefit of this type of surface was; they were hard wearing under relentless use and they significantly reduced the amount of maintenance that was required compared with a natural playing field.
