Safety in use

Sport surfaces undergo a complex reaction when subjected to loading. The desired components of the interaction are deformation under load, the ability to absorb impact, and the energy restitution of the impact, i.e. the amount of energy returned to sports person from the surface on which he/she is performing.

The ability of surface to absorb an impact is an important safety feature of sports surface, Values specified are, therefore, inevitably a compromise between these fundamental characteristics, sports surfaces react differently under different temperatures and strain rates: they become harder at low temperatures and softer at high temperatures.

An important requirement for safety and sports performance is for there to be sufficient grip between the footwear of athlete and the sports surface. Insufficient grip can result in the athlete slipping on the surface: to much grip can place un acceptable stress on joints and muscle ligaments.
