COLLEGE RIFLES RUGBY FIELDS, AUCKLAND, NZ • JANUARY 2019

COLLEGE RIFLES INSTALL LIGATURF RS+260 COOLPLUS

Back in 2008 the College Rifles Rugby Union Football and Sports Club decided to install two artificial grass rugby fields, the first in New Zealand. After 10 years of rigorous play these fields need to be replaced with a new high-quality rugby artificial sports turf.

Polytan NZ upgraded these fields to Polytan’s elite rugby turf system, LigaTurf RS+260 COOLplus. This product’s latest technology consists of high shock absorption, strong durability and allows for professional rugby sports performance. This “One Turf” Solution has superb playing qualities and wear resistance, providing the surface with extended longevity.

Positioned underneath the artificial grass surface, is a 25mm insitu elastic layer, which reduces the amount of impact when players make contact with the surface. This added layer of protection means players are not falling onto a solid unforgiving surface and are able to play without fear of hurting themselves, thereby allowing them to perform at their very best.

The surface has been infilled with EPDM performance infill in green; an environmentally friendly, natural looking, engineered product.

Upgrading to the best rugby surface technology, Ligaturf RS+260 COOLplus is well known for its outstanding playability characteristics, durability and compliance to World Rugby Regulation 22 requirements.

Thanks to community funding and the partnership with Auckland Council, College Rifles were able to bring these rugby fields back to life and give the community a space to continue playing rugby competition for many years to come.

LIGATURF RS + COOLPLUS WORLD CUP EDITION

The City of Stonnington awarded Polytan as the chosen surface provider for the high quality LigaTurf RS + COOLplus World Cup Edition.

This environmentally friendly heavy metal free surface was created in Melbourne, Australia meaning the council could rely on a high quality and durable product that is willing to stand the test of time.

COOLPLUS TECHNOLOGY

The COOLplus technology in this yarn reduces the surface temperature allowing for a surface that won’t get so hot in those summer months. This yarn is also protected to the highest level from any UV degradation.

DRAINAGE CELL

The high-tech drainage cell ensures that athletes are able to play and perform well in all conditions. Without this superior drainage cell system, the surface would soak up rain making it sluggish and slow to play on.

SHOCKPAD ABSORPTION

The Shockpad Pro Play 23 sits above the drainage cell and below the yarn backing to keep the surface rigid. This added layer of protection allows athletes to play as hard as they like. This enables athletes to purely focus on the game at hand, knowing they will be protected by the durable surface and shock absorbing synthetic grass surface.

DRIVE CAREFULLY ON THE MONASH!

Drivers will have to take extra care and keep their eyes on the road for as long as they can when passing Gardiner Park, Stonnington on the Monash Freeway because this new facility is bound to catch your attention!

CHATSWOOD HIGH SCHOOL MULTISPORTS COMPLEX • AUGUST 2017

Chatswood High School Multisports Complex

The Chatswood High School project was awarded to Polytan from Council. The resurfacing of this project will unite not only a school but the sport and recreation community. The field was installed with LigaTurf HB250 under a strict development application (DA).

Polytan not only resurfaced this field, we also installed a StormTech on site detention tank which met superior structural integrity standards. This method was cost effective and saved valuable land and water resources.

The school is now a fully functional multi sport field which allows for sport play such as for senior and junior football, junior cricket, cricket practice, netball and basketball. Polytan also installed a reversible tower which allows for both netball and basketball playability.

This all weather facility is currently used for school sports and is open to the sporting and recreational community.
