Product Guide

Research and Development

AirPAT™ has been borne out of evolution, research and development, with an overarching ethos of continuous improvement and being the best in the field. When HG Turf Group Partner, The Motz Group decided to re-engineer the Prescription Athletic Turf (PAT) system to include subsurface rootzone aeration, it was a commitment to improve on what was already available in the market, and to push the boundaries.

A team of civil, mechanical, drainage and software engineers were assembled with the goals set:

  • Optimise the performance and uniformity of both drainage and air in the rootzone
  • Include features that support sustainability and functionality across a wide spectrum of venues globally
  • Design for efficient and affordable construction and maintenance.

Design and Construction

An AirPAT™ system can be designed and constructed under several scenarios:

  • As a fully integrated sports field builder, HG Turf Group can seamlessly take the project from concept to finished product under a formal design and construction contract.
  • Placed in a design assist role, HG Turf Group can support project stakeholders by providing detailed design, written specifications and full construction services.
  • HG Turf Group also offer the AirPAT™ system in situations where alternative field building contractors have been selected. We can supply and install the technology whilst ensuring that all contractors interface together to deliver the best outcome for you.


AirPAT™ provides grounds managers with a variety of advanced tools to support agronomic and turf management decisions. As the world’s leading natural grass rootzone management system AirPAT™ offers the following functions:

  • Gravity and Vacuum enhanced drainage
  • Moisture and Aeration porosity profile management
  • Overhead and sub irrigation
  • Vertical and horizontal air flow through rootzone profile
  • Capturing, conserving and recycling of water
  • Continuous monitoring of the rootzone
  • Additional heating and cooling options

Customised reporting

The AirPAT™ System continually collects a wide array of agronomic and climatic data. Sensors placed in the rootzone log temperature, volumetric water content, oxygen levels and dielectric constant.

The AirPAT™ weather station records temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, wind speed, solar radiation and evapo-transpiration. The systems brain and data

logger can store months of continuous monitoring data in order to create valuable benchmarks and trends. The software can produce reports customised by the grounds manager and display results in a wide array of graphical formats, which allow decisions to be made based on precision turf management information.
