Frequently Asked Questions
The ultimate goal of lower score is what motivates people who use Fiberbuilt’s mats and our highest priority is to provide the means necessary to satisfy that goal. Like the athletes who use our mats, we strive to stay ahead setting a pace that cannot be matched. We are dedicated to re-imagining technology’s and innovative designs. Our mats look as good as they perform. Fiberbuilt Golf Mats boost a golfer’s confidence from the moment they take their first practice swing to their first tee off. We aim to make golfers better, and we will continue to do so!
Fiberbuilt began in Calgary in 1959, as a hand assembly operation that focused on floor brooms. Over 50 years of research and development, Fiberbuilt has evolved into a highly mechanized and complex production in a number of very diverse industry market segments. Today, Fiberbuilt not only produces long fiber grass products and pipeline brushes, but also manufactures a standard of brushes and designs industry specific custom brushes for a range of markets; including food service, street maintenance, marine fishing, oil and gas, mining and so much more!
A traditional carpet used at some driving ranges, typically offers very little absorption and can actually be the root cause of golf injuries.
A study we completed at the University of Calgary Performance Laboratory, Sports Medicine Centre reported that 90% of the participants using the Fiberbuilt Grass Mats felt it offered the most absorption and overall best quality. The mat simulates hitting off a lush fairway, therefor reducing the risk of injury.
When you purchase the Fiberbuilt grass panels, the interlocking panels allow you to rotate the grass for extended wear.
How long does the Performance Turf last?
This will depend on the frequency of use and environmental conditions. Based on the amount of nylon per yard this product will offer exceptional durability.
Fiberbuilt 401 – 32oz per square yard + foam backing
Performance Turf – 120oz per square yard + thinner biocell backing
Fiberbuilt Grass – 150oz per square yard
It is important to note that the fibers will compact and the performance turf will therefore become slightly firmer underfoot over time.
Both mat systems offer the life like feel of a fairway. The durability of both mat systems is exceptional and both mat systems offer a rubber foundation for an extra soft feel.
The Performance Mats are Fiberbuilt’s latest grass where it allows you to place a tee anywhere on the stance mat, not just within the Fiberbuilt grass, for multiple practicing opportunities. The performance mat system typically comes with the performance EPS pods and rubber foundation (which allows for light weight and a semi-custom design), comes in a beautiful “on-course” green color, and the grass is blended with UV inhibitors, so the color will not fade. The long fiber of the performance mat system provides the golfer with a realistic club turf interaction and ball flight performance.
Our Traditional Mat Systems consist of two different color choices; stadium green or on course green. The solid rubber foundation has compression cell technology for superior traction and is available in a single or double sided system.
