In 2014, we tested over 460 artificial pitches, athletics tracks, tennis courts, multi-use sports surfaces, netball courts and play areas in 38 countries.
We test to internationally recognised and governing body standards.
We offer the most reactive and price friendly service on the market. With over thirty trained and qualified engineers, working in eight satellite Laboratories, across four continents, this enables us to optimise your project's potential, ensuring safety and performance for users. International field testing manager Keith McPherson and his team of site engineers will guide you through the installation process and certification.
A Sports Labs engineer is seen here performing a simulated heel strike test to record the shock absorption of a pitch. The test uses an advanced artificial athlete that drops a heavy mass onto a spring onto a load measuring platen. This test allows Sports Labs to characterise the properties of a sports surface for athletic performance and to "tune" sports surfaces for community or elite use.
