Will Sliding be the Same?

Yes, all kinds of cleats may be used.

How Is the Jox Box Different from Similar Products?

It is a heavy-duty, quality-constructed product made of a porous rubber crumb base that's heated and pressed to the proper density and topped off by a 3/4" sand-filled fiber turf.  It is then buried 31/2" deep into the ground, so players don't even know it's there.  If infield and outfield are ready for play, you know the Jox Box® is ready.

How Long Does it Take to Install the Jox Box®

The maintenance-free Jox Box® can be installed in about an hour and played on at once. Step-by-step installation instructions come with every Jox Box®, and our Service Department (800/683-0610) can answer any installation questions you may have.  We also forward the instructions to your Parks and Recreation Department or school prior to shipment.
Why Does the Picture Show Green Fibers?

  So there's no turf burn to  worry about.  It's simply polypropylene fibers that are colored green. When the Jox Box® is covered, no green is seen.
