Test of sports surfaces

RISE offers a wide array of different tests to ensure the quality of sports surfaces for producers, suppliers and users.

Cause

As the nation’s largest resource for testing of sports surfaces we can perform independent testing of for example floor for sports centers and gymnasiums. We also test sports surfaces for athletics, both indoor and outdoor use as well as artificial grass. It´s important to us that you as a customer can feel confident that the product you are delivering or buying is guaranteed to meet the existing requirements.

We are happy to help you with tests both during product development and before market introduction. We perform follow-up tests on changes in product specifications or on quality verifications if needed.

We work with established standards, but can also develop customer-specific tests and solutions if needed.

Method

Examples of tests

  • Shock absorption
  • Friction determination
  • Resistance to impression
  • Bond strengths
  • Tensile properties
  • Thickness
  • Determination of ball bounce

Deliveries

Upon completion of the test, a report is delivered.
