Performance testing


On completion, your pitch can be tested by an accredited testing institute to ensure it complies with the required standard. This is a key part of sports pitch installation to guarantee both the quality and increased life span of the surface.

Our commitment to excellence has resulted in GreenFields being recognised by the governing bodies of several major sports  – GreenFields are a FIFA Preferred Producer for football, an FIH Approved Turf Manufacturer for hockey and a Preferred Turf Producer for World Rugby.

Quality Testing Criteria

There are four basic categories that define the overall performance of the synthetic surface and these will form the basis of the testing which will be carried out both on the laboratory samples and the completed field.

These are:

• The resistance of the surface to wear and tear (durability)

• Ball/ surface interaction

• Player/surface interaction

• Pitch quality features and aesthetics
