Act Global Installs the First Fully Recyclable Synthetic Turf Field in France

Nearly 450 members of the Davezieux Football Club set foot on the recycled playing surface in early September.

Davezieux, France–Act Global partner, EDER, completed the 8,6111 square foot installation with a new woven system known as WXF50-M.

The artificial turf is designed to resemble natural grass in terms of appearance and playability.

“The playing time is unlimited whereas a classic terrain does not support more than 7 hours a day and is deteriorating then,” stated Christophe Giraud, commercial technician at EDER.

A trio of synthetic fibres are woven into an interlocked backing system to offer 100% tuft lock for unmatched durability. Water passes easily through the woven backing allowing the ground to dry quicker. Pile fixation and dimensional stability keep fibres standing vertical and resist matting.

“We are proud to be the first synthetic turf manufacturer to deliver a fully recyclable full size soccer pitch in France,” Act Global Technical Director Guillaume Loubersac said. “Congratulations to our partner EDER for the perfect installation, and the outstanding dedication to the players, coaches, and managers of Davezieux Football Club!”

Act Global works daily to implement technical solutions with sustainable, economic, environmental, and social impacts.
