The FIFA Quality Licensee initiative ensures that artificial football turf fields meet the highest standards in terms of quality, performance and safety according to the needs of the end user. Act Global uses FIFA benchmarks in its product development, quality standards and sport performance test methods as they were based upon top professional natural grass stadiums.

Measures the maximum force recorded to destroy the joints where they are sewn or adhered with adhesive
UV / Water / Heat - Measures the color change, abrasion resistance and joint strength.
SIMULATED WEAR & ABRASION RESISTANCE
The surface is artificially abraded (simulation of multiple years of wear) and tested for: Shock Absorption, Vertical Deformation, Vertical Ball Rebound, and Rotational Resistance
Measures how much infill is encapsulated and how much is splashed during play
SKIN ABRASION/ SKIN FRICTION
Measures the abrasiveness and friction of artificial turf on the skin of the player when sliding.
SHOCK ABSORPTION & VERTICAL DEFORMATION
Measures the impact absorption provided by synthetic turf to a player running or falling on as well as the foot stability of the surface as a player runs across it
SLIP RESISTANCE SCALE & DECELERATION
Measures the ability of studs to slide through the surface without causing the player to slip over. Slip resistance deceleration measures the deceleration experienced by the players shoe as it makes contact with the surface. If the deceleration is too high, damages to joints and ligaments may occur
Measures the interaction between the shoe sole and the surface of artificial grass relating to the ability of a player to change direction.
VERTICAL BALL REBOUND
Measures how high the ball bounces when falling vertically onto a synthetic turf field.
Measures how far the ball rolls onto synthetic grass compared to natural grass.
ANGLE BALL REBOUND
Measures how the ball rebounds from an artificial turf surface when striking it at a shallow angle under dry and wet conditions.
