A client was undertaking works at a major Melbourne sporting venue involving a rubber shock pad under a rubber/sand filled synthetic grass.

The client wanted to be certain that the surface they were laying met the fall height requirements for the sports involved.

Performance Sport and Play were asked to test the rubber underlay and test a made up a sample of the proposed top surface.

The result was that the client could continue with the time critical work, safe in the knowledge that the surface would meet the critical fall height requirements which would later be tested by the governing body.
