Synthetic turf system testing
The only truly realistic testing of synthetic turf systems need to be performed on a synthetic turf pitch. The performance characteristics are determined referring to a number of different criteria. The best example of these criteria is given by the FIFA requirements for synthetic turf systems. These criteria are of key importance to the performance of the synthetic turf pitch. The following schedule shows these criteria and an impression of their relation to the components used in a system.
Testing and monitoring of these criteria can provide the data needed to analyse the performance of the pitch and its components.
