Holo GT and Forgrin GT receive approval according to the FIFA Quality Concept


The two innovative infill granules for hot climates will be presented at the FSB exhibition in Cologne.

The infill granules for hot climates, Holo GT and Forgrin GT, have also been approved according to the FIFA Quality Concept. Both products meet the strict requirements for installation in a FIFA 1 or 2 STAR field, ensuring a durable playing surface and meeting the needs of top level football professionals.

In the laboratories of the certified institute ISA SPORT,  the resistance of both products to weathering were tested in a simulation. In particular, Holo GT, thanks to its characteristic shape with the hollow space inside, releases the heat more easily in order to ensure a lower temperature of the playing surface than any other infill granule in the same conditions (wet or dry) available on the market.

Holo GT and Forgrin GT have been designed in SO.F.TER labs to resist levels of solar radiation up to 200 KLangley/year (unit of measurement of solar radiation), almost the highest attainable level in desert areas of the planet, making it possible to play in a performing field even at difficult latitudes for natural and artificial turf. Both infill passed and obtained excellent results in the tests conducted to verify compliance with the high standards of FIFA, which were fixed taking natural grass in perfect condition as a benchmark.

The products will be presented by the technical staff at FSB 2013, the International Trade Fair for Sports Facilities to be held in Cologne from 22nd to 25th of October. All further details will be available at Hall 11.2 / Stand R50.
