Sports Authority Field, Englewood, CO
In January 2015, head turf manager Chris Hathaway faced a tight, February-to-April time frame to replace the turf heating system under the Broncos playing field. The project involved ripping up the field, removing the original heating system replacing it with a new and improved heating system before laying down a new playing field. The REHAU system installed under the field features nearly 20 miles of 3/4-in RAUPEX (PEXa) non-barrier pipe.
Denver Broncos Practice Fields, Englewood, CO
The Broncos training facility has two outdoor natural grass fields, one of which used an outdated electric soil heating system that was expensive to operate. That system was replaced with a REHAU Turf Conditioning System, a hydronic system that circulates warm water through pipes to maintain a 60° root zone temperature.
Cleveland Browns Stadium, Cleveland, OH
Rising 12 stories above Lake Erie, Cleveland Browns Stadium experiences chilly lake-effect temperatures. REHAU’s innovative turf conditioning system prevents the field from freezing and enables healthy green turf to grown long after the normal growing season, allowing the facility to host year around outdoor footall. The system consists of nearly 40 miles of RAUPEX 02 Barrier crosslinked polyethylene (PEXa) pipe that distributes heated fluid from a series of boilers through an underground piping network.
