ACT Global Sports - new approved turf supplier
10 Jul 2007 08:11
 

The International Hockey Federation (FIH) welcomes ACT Global Sports as its latest supplier of synthetic turf approved for world level hockey.

To be approved, a turf must be tested by an independent FIH accredited laboratory in this case ISA-Sport in the Netherlands.  The tests have shown that ACT Global Xtreme Turf NFH-12 meets the highest level of FIH performance requirements and so can be used for all hockey including top international matches – FIH’s global standard for World Level Events.

Xtreme Turf NFH-12 uses the latest 'Dual Yarn' technology of polyethylene and nylon monofilament fibres.  This ensures high playability but also brings environmental benefits because, in comparison with some other turfs, less water is required on the surface to achieve excellent playability.

ACT Global has its main research and production facilities in China with head offices located in USA and regional offices in the Netherlands, Cyprus, Hong Kong and South Africa.  For more information, please visit www.actglobalsports.com.
