Re-use of re-bounce® shock pad, the highest level of recycling

In the summer of 2014 not only the artificial turf was relocated, but a complete artificial turf system including a re-bounce® shock pad was removed and reinstalled at another location.

In 2006 a re-bounce® shock pad was installed at the Aspmyra Stadium in Bodø, Norway as part of the artificial turf pitch.

Back then, the choice for the re-bounce® shock pad was made after extensive testing. A test group consisting of football players tested different artificial turf systems in Europe, all with different types of shock pads. In the end they chose for a system including re-bounce®.

During 8 years of intensive use by the Norwegian first league football team FK Bodø/Glimt the pitch obtained the highest certification year after year.

This summer, it was decided that it was time for a new artificial turf system at the Aspmyra Stadium, again with the proven re-bounce® shock pad.

Since it was still in excellent shape, the re-bounce® shock pad has been removed together with the old artificial turf carpet and installed again by Unisport in Saltstraumen, Norway, starting a second life at a different location.
