PRO-gran: The Ultimate Pitch Infill
Introducing a truly sport-enhancing Polymeric Infill for artificial pitches that performs as well in the wider environment as it does on the field of play.
The case for artificial sports pitches is virtually self-evident – longevity, resilience and exceptional performance. But our latest product combines all of these benefits while adding a 100% degree of protection to the environment and to the health of users. The Polymeric Infill has been engineered so that it emits no PAHs, heavy metals or micro plastics, and is extremely tough. It performs as well as it looks, and lasts for at least 12 years.
PRO-gran – an all-round great performance
No other artificial pitch infill matches PRO-gran’s performance for ball bounce, ball roll and surface stability
Enhanced playing experience through consistency of play, lower surface temperatures, no airborne particulates and no aroma
With a big reduction in skin abrasion, players will be more than happy with PRO-gran’s performance. Tests performed by Labosport, France

How PRO-gran is used
This cross-section of an artificial pitch displays the layers that create the pitch and how PRO-gran is used. The Polymeric Infill (PRO-gran) keeps the grass fibres upright, creating consistent optimum conditions year-after-year, for up to 12 years.
It doesn’t significantly compact and keeps the pitch safe from becoming slippery as well as providing excellent drainage.
PRO-gran never looks worn out
Not only is PRO-gran harder wearing than the competition, but it is also guaranteed to last the lifetime of a pitch.
PRO-gran is still perfect after 15,000 cycles in LiSport XL tests; that’s the equivalent of 10 to 12 years of use.
Raising the bar on safety standards
We became increasingly aware of the concerns, sparked by media reports, that there may be health risks associated with synthetic pitches.
Studies suggest there is no significant risk from rubber crumb but still we wanted to address these negative perceptions.
Our solution is PRO-gran - a Polymeric Infill that is engineered to offer the best in performance and is safe for players and the environment.
Watch PRO-gran in use
Shelford is the first Rugby Club to play on PRO-gran. Watch their training session in action!
PRO-gran is working really well for the club. Dr Leslie Gelling, Club Secretary says that “Players have reported how the true nature of the PRO-gran infill leads to greater confidence in the surface, especially when kicking at goal, creating a reliable base for the standing foot, reducing the risk of injury and hopefully improving accuracy.”
