Glenorchy goes Poligras for the new Grassports showcase football field.

Glenorchy City Council in combination with football Federation Tasmania have recently awarded the full construction of their new synthetic showcase field to Grassports Australia.

The two organisations undertook a rigorous tender process and thorough surfacing research on the project before award to Grassports, including the selection of world’s best top of the line Poligras Premier surface.

The combination of Grassports excellent reputation that spans 40 years and the superior Poligras products, made tender selection straightforward.

Poligras Premier R-RS is a leading “one turf” option that will offer the best possible performance to their new facility.
The Premier R-RS incorporates the latest re-spring yarn together with “cool yarn” technology to minimize heat generation and encourage year round participation for all ages and skill levels.

In keeping with world class sustainability performance, the yarn has a 21% recycled component.

No more washed out games and hard or boggy grounds to content with. Usage can increase to ten times more than is currently available.

The combination of Grass and the STI Laid insitu elastic shockpad provides not only premier performance but also minimises future resurfacing costs.

This installation on which works have commenced, represents the first installation in Australia of this system. Completion is expected in March 2013

This follows on from the successful installation of the Wakefield Park double field installation in Auckland NZ. This facility not only achieved FIFA two star rating (best in the world) but also complies with International Rugby IRB rule 22 Compliance.
