Abstract
(EN)
A grass surface (1) on a soccer pitch has a top surface (2) under which is an upper layer (3) formed from a growing material having silica sand, elastomeric polyurethane fibres, rigid polypropylene fibres and soil to produce a resilient, reduced-hardness surface with good ball-rebound and traction performance. There is then a lower rootzone (4) of a sand/soil blend, below which is a layer of graded gravel with drainage channels (6).

(FR)
Une surface d'herbe (1) ménagée sur un terrain de football a une surface supérieure (2) sous laquelle se trouve une couche supérieure (3) formée d'une matière de croissance faite de sable de silice, de fibres de polyuréthane élastomère, de fibres de polypropylène rigides et de sol pour produire une surface élastique à dureté réduite présentant une bonne performance de rebond de balle et de traction. Il y a ensuite une zone des racines inférieure (4) constituée d'un mélange sable/sol, au-dessous de laquelle se trouve une couche de gravier calibré munie de canaux de drainage (6).
