The VarioSlide product line is a revolutionary artificial grass with a very natural appearance that is hard-wearing. From a technical playing perspective, these are top products. They use the unique “Duo Yarn System” patented by Domo®. Duo Yarn System stands for a 100% propeller monofilament grass surface to which a second type of yarn is added, creating extra added value.
The new VarioSlide S PRO generation uses the Heliflex technology reinforced with a hi-tech profiled film. The fibrillated yarn from the previous VarioSlide generation has been replaced by a hard-wearing ribbed film. This film ensures a number of unique extra benefits on the pitch.
1. Looks just like natural grass
People want artificial grass to look like natural grass. The grass fibres remain nice and straight thanks to the profiling of the yarn, the Heliflex technology and the sand and rubber infill. Sunlight is reflected just like on natural grass. The colours used are a perfect match for the shades of natural grass. VarioSlide S PRO looks exactly like natural grass.
2. Outstanding playing comfort guaranteed, outstanding “ball roll” and “foot under the ball”
Heliflex technology ensures that the yarn always springs back up nice and straight after each bounce or impact. As a result, the grass mat carries the ball, as it were, making it easier for players to get their foot under it. The roll and speed of the ball on natural grass are equalled, if not bettered.
3. No displaced rubber
The profiled monofilm holds the rubber infill in place, preventing it from being displaced during play and keeping the pitch nice and level.
4. Cooler pitch
The tips of the profiled monofilm split when the pitch is used, forming a perfect protective layer for the rubber infill. Sunlight does not come into direct contact with the rubber, thus preventing long-term heating of the grass mat. The helix shape also ensures that less sunlight hits the filament, which means the grass mat heats up less. This helix shape also ensures that the water (after a shower) is retained for longer, allowing the pitch to cool down more. This helps prevent burns during intensive use.
5. Outstanding wear resistance thanks to advanced polymers
Lab wear tests show that thanks to the use of advanced polymers and special profiling of the monofilament with a thickness up to 300 µm, this grass mat is extremely hard-wearing. This unique yarn combination easily passes the 30,000 cycle LISPORT test, equivalent to around 15 years of normal football play.
6. Maintenance-friendly thanks to profiled monofilm
A Domo® VarioSlide pitch requires regular brushing. Topping up with rubber and sweeping are limited by the profiled monofilm net that holds the rubber infill in place and keeps it level during brushing, or when clearing the snow from a pitch.
7. Shorter installation time thanks to Heliflex
Thanks to the Heliflex technology, the yarn stands perfectly upright after being rolled out, which means it does not need brushing before the infill is added. This operation can therefore be ignored during installation, thereby saving a lot of time.The monofilm is not yet split when installed, which allows the pitch to easily be filled with sand and rubber. The film will later split when used, thus fulfilling its protective function.
