Professional test equipment is no longer the domain of testing laboratories. The Dutch company Deltec introduces the budget friendly Club Tester. This lightweight and easy to use device monitors synthetic turf pitches on hardness, stability and elasticity. These values have a direct relationship with injury sensitiveness and how fatiguing a pitch is to play on. By anticipating with appropriate maintenance your pitch becomes not only safer and better, you also extend the lifetime remarkably. The Club Tester simulates the landing of a foot on the pitch. A special sensor registers the values which are simply shown on the display. The device is especially developed for installers, contractors, maintenance companies, consultants, municipalities and clubs.
