Synthetic turf manufacturer with FIFA license, before applying the field football field to be applied to the synthetic turf system will be applied to one of the FIFA accredited laboratories, FQC (FIFA QUALITY CONCEPT) according to FQC standards by defining that the system is defined FQC norms. In FIFA turf testing; artificial turf produced in this way passes the usability test.
FIFA Standards Compliance Testing
The first stage of the FIFA standards compliance test is the test where the ball’s bounce rate and rotation speed are calculated. If the football jumps between 65 and 100 cm, it is compatible with FIFA 1 Star. If the ball bounces between 65 and 85 cm., it corresponds to the FIFA 2 Star standard.
It is the stage at which the disability risk of athletes is measured. After that, the shock absorbers between 55-70% are compatible with FIFA 1 Star standard and the shock absorbers between 60-70% and FIFA 2 Star standard.
So, of course, these tests have details. You can get detailed information about FIFA standards compliance testing by contacting customer representatives. For more information, please contact us.
After passing the substructure conformity test, the FIFA accredited laboratory certifies that it is suitable for the carpet spreading process. After the shock pad laid under the carpet, the synthetic grass spreading process is started. After the synthetic grass joints are glued with a helmet in the gland, the amount and fillings of the laboratory test results accredited by FIFA are applied to the field with the help of the spreader.

Quality Factors of Artificial Grass
Finally, the quality level of artificial grass is also very important. Some important factors determine this quality level. First of all, artificial grass is made of synthetic fibers. These fibers are the most important elements of artificial grass. Other than these, technical issues like weaving density, pile weight, the height of the fibers are important features that designate the quality level.
These are all some important features and determiners of the product. So, can you paint artificial grass? The answer is yes. Because artificial grass is also a manufactured product and no one can stop you if you want to paint. But should you paint artificial grass? Or as a manufacturer of them for many years, does Ekip Grass Companyrecommend painting artificial grass? The answer is NO. Because the artificial grass manufacturing process is very complicated and requires improved technological methods. We paint the product during the manufacturing process with special devices. Or, in other words, we produce them originally in the desired colors.
So, if you decide to paint it later, you won’t be able to paint the product as we do. This paint can’t be as successful as we do in the factory. On the other hand, this process will most probably harm the product, make it lose its general features like UV-resistance. This will shorten the life period of artificial grass. Also, making a structural change will violate the warranty agreement.
Finally, as Ekip Grass The company, one of the finest artificial sport turf manufacturers, we are sure that all other companies, don’t recommend painting artificial grass. Leave it as the original color or you may have to buy a new one in the close future.
Playing football on synthetic turf football pitches is now as pleasant and quality as natural turf. Artificial grass football pitches are preferred because of the high maintenance costs of natural turf pitches and the failure to match very often.
•It should be determined that there is no undulation on the surface of a FIFA Recommended certified •Artificial grass shock absorbers should be standard. •It should be tested that synthetic turf used will be poured and discolored in a short time. •Rest assured that the soccer ball will not move non-standard to the extent that it affects the player’s game. •The tests and criteria of FIFA Recommended certified football fields are as follows.
There are so many FIFA pitch requirements. It is not easy to be FIFA quality turf. Here is the FIFA football turf. Let’s examine it.
