Poligras Olympia COOLplus

Poligras® Olympia COOLplus® is designed to provide elite hockey play standard across numerous international and regional facilities. Using exclusive yarn, the hockey pitches offer excellent physical play and comfort for the players.

The even surface made of texturised monofilament ensures fast-moving styles of play with excellent durability characteristics. This surface offers a high level of comfort against wear, along with proven reduced irrigation requirements. Just like all our hockey pitch products Poligras® Olympia COOLplus® meets all requirements of the International Hockey Federation (FIH) for unfilled hockey surfacing system and has multiple global references.

The system is an improvement on our Poligras® Olympia that was used at Olympic games, World Cups, World Championships, Champions Trophy and Commonwealth Games level. It exhibits outstanding UV stability and playability from the exclusive fibrillated yarn, allowing for fast-moving styles of play with precise ball characteristics.

Designed to provide a soft surface with reduced irrigation requirements the surfacing system is a complete success. You saw the colour options for this system at the 2012 Olympic games, with their blue playing surface and pink border success!

Safety
Safety

 Force Reduction

Force reduction evaluates a surface's ability to reduce impact force. This mostly relates to impacts generated by lower extremities, for example an athlete running. Our sport surfaces offer greatly reduces tissue damage, joint impact and sports related injuries and player fatigue.

 Energy Return

With a high force reduction your sports surface will also provide you with a high energy return, this helps players play long and reduces recover times.


 Elastic Layer Shockpad

The shock absorption layer of the Poligras® system is installed on site and consists of recycled SBR granules and bonding agents to ensure that the Poligras® synthetic surface is both stable and yielding to protect the athletes. Factors that are key in sports physiology, such as shock absorption and deformation, are permanently kept within a precisely defined value range thanks to the special APT formulation.

 Water-permeable surface

Track surfaces, in general fall into two categories: permeable (or porous) meaning water drains through the surface, and impermeable (or non-porous), meaning water drains and/or evaporates off the surface. The surface for you will depend on your geographical site location, weather conditions and other factors.

 Secondary Backing

QUALIBACK HYBRID EMULSION: Extensive research and development led to the highly successful 'Hybrid Emulsion' secondary backing coating to replace outdated technology. The upgrade of this critical system component is based on our chemical manufacturing excellence for formulating acrylic and polyurethane coatings. In-house manufacture and application of the revolutionary 'Hybrid Emulsion' secondary backing for artificial turf is a substantial improvement from conventional and outdated SBR latex.

 COOLplus Technology

Poligras Olympia COOLplus® features our proprietary infrared-reflective COOLplus® sports yarn technology. Our proprietary COOLplus® yarn technology does not absorb infrared rays, translating into less molecular vibration and cooler surface temperatures. Studies show COOLplus® surface temperatures are consistently 10-20% lower than the competitive systems. The result is better player comfort and reduced need for irrigation!


 Exclusive Adhesion with Qualipur Spray Adhesive

QUALIPUR SPRAY ADHESIVE: In-house manufacture of this exclusive adhesive offers 100% adhesion of the entire pitch surface. This revolutionary adhesive application provides superior dimensional stability over 'loose laying' techniques for unfilled hockey surfaces. Reducing playing surface, delamination and frequent 'stick-tears' in high wear areas on aged unfilled turfs is the secret to longevity and minimising loss of water from the system once irrigated.

 Full Adhesion with Qualipur Seaming Adhesive

QUALIPUR SEAMING ADHESIVE: In-house manufacture of this polyurethane seaming adhesive creates unmatched seam strength. This increases the durability and longevity of seams which means fields have a much longer overall life expectancy. This strength also supports the athletes as there is no cause for lifting of the seams endangering player safety.


 Entanglement Technology

The exclusive 'Entanglement Technology' is a proprietary feature of the Polytex fibres, which interlaces the molecular chains in the turf fibre into a three dimensional matrix. The result is an exceptionally soft surface and greater protection against splicing with optimum playing properties and a considerably longer lifespan.

 Tufted in lines

Lines are tufted in during manufacture and inlaid lines secured with breakthrough adhesive technology.

 Installation

Installing outdoor sports surfaces demands specific expertise, a high level of precision and experience. To ensure a successful installation we highly recommend that you only use a certified, approved installer. This will ensure that your system has excellent performance characteristics over the entire surface and longevity.

 Certification

The high quality and excellent playing properties of our synthetic turfs have also been verified by numerous seals of quality and certificates. Our hockey pitches meet the current national and international standards with completed Poligras fields meeting requirements of the various sport requirements – an achievement that makes us particularly proud.

 Care and Maintenance

The construction of a hockey pitch and its associated facilities represents a significant capital investment and major influence on the enjoyment and potential development of the sport in the local and wider community.

To maximise the benefits that a synthetic hockey pitch can provide a key factor that cannot be over emphasized is the implementation of the correct maintenance regime. Our maintenance guidelines are provided for use by the players, facility maintenance personnel and contracted professionals. The information contained covers regular and frequently occurring cleaning and maintenance matters required to maintain a Poligras pitch.

Synthetic sports surfaces generally require far less maintenance and upkeep than natural surfaces. However no synthetic sports surface is 100% maintenance free, regular maintenance and cleaning of synthetic sports surfaces is required to keep them at their optimal playing condition.
