About SportsEdge

Welcome to the SportsEdge® website, where we have assembled our comprehensive collection of products and details for outdoor sports construction. SportsEdge is proud to manufacture and supply the highest quality products for the sports construction market. All products manufactured by SportsEdge are made in the U.S.A.

SportsEdge is a division of ABT, Inc. ABT originally began with a single focus: provide products and services to solve North America’s surface drainage problems. With European technology and the superior raw materials to produce high quality polymer concrete available in the Piedmont area of the Carolinas, ABT began operation just north of Charlotte in Troutman, North Carolina on March 31, 1983. Over the last 30 years, ABT has experienced steady sales growth by providing new products and technical services that not only met but exceeded customer expectations. In the process, the company became America’s premier supplier of linear drainage products.

In mid-1995, ABT began marketing SportsEdge® Pro, a product line specifically designed for track and athletic field drainage, followed by the SportsEdge XT Slot Drain in 2001. SportsEdge has evolved into a division of ABT that includes manufacturing and supplying a full line of outdoor sports field equipment.

The premium Typar® geotextile fabric is cross linked and provides superior grab strength to ensure continued flow and long term performance. This system is used for synthetic turf fields and natural turf fields. Available in 6″, 12″, 18″, 24″, and 36″ rolls.

Edge Details

FlexEdge™ Rubber Curbs & Borders are the ideal finished edge detail for synthetic turf fields, playgrounds, beach volleyball courts, long jump pits, and landscape areas. FlexEdge Curbs & Borders improve athlete safety by eliminating the need for wood, plastic, or concrete edges. The end result is a safer and cleaner finished edge detail.

Soccer Goals

  • SportsEdge Soccer Goals— Preventing accidental death or serious injury from soccer goals tipping over is a major concern, and one that SportsEdge takes very seriously. When we set out to manufacture our new soccer goals, the safety of children and soccer players was the driving force behind the design. Although soccer goals should always be anchored, we set out to design our goals to be as tip-resistant as possible in the event the goals were not properly anchored.
