AvTurf’s artificial surfacing solution provides airports with a
variety of benefits:
Stabilization of runway and taxiway shoulders, reducing the potential for safety hazards and costs associated with aircraft veer-offs
Enhanced pavement conspicuity/delineation for approach to landing and taxiing operations
Reduced foreign object debris (FOD), potentially eliminating the safety threat of foreign object damage; more expeditious identification of FOD on AvTurf installations
Reduced potential for wildlife hazards: AvTurf does not support bird and other wildlife activities like loafing, grazing, and foraging. There is no food source, no shelter, no water
Potential for enhanced response times for aircraft rescue and fire fighting vehicles, depending on the prepared base, in all-weather conditions
Reduced need for personnel and equipment in RSAs and TSAs, thus eliminating/ reducing the potential for runway incursions
Reduced erosion around runway and taxiway pavement because of jet blast and washout
Reduced or eliminated overburden in regions where snow berms and other accommodations are associated with weather conditions
