Underhill International has developed a Turf Box to house the company’s long-throw Mirage-125 sprinklers, typically installed around the perimeter of synthetic sports fields.  

Mirage-125 heads are used to cool down and clean artificial track and field surfaces before practice or competition. By installing the M-125 heads in a stainless steel Turf Box, crews can better access the sprinklers for routine maintenance without disturbing the surface of the playing fields.

Constructed to accommodate the oversized M-125 sprinklers, the Turf Box enclosures sit 18 inches below grade and measure 15 x 18 inches wide. Artificial turf is laid up to the edge of the Turf Box lid. Sprinklers can be serviced through-the-top of the box, without interfering with track or field surfaces.

Mirage sprinklers are connected to the irrigation lines through the bottom of the box and rise above grade when in operation. The box base has a 2.5-inch return flange for stability in all types of soil.
