Making its show debut during the Professional MotorSport World Expo, the "safeguard bale" is the latest product from racetrack barrier specialist, Recticel.
As a result of numerous enquiries from customers, Recticel has developed a modern alternative to the traditional straw bale. Made from fire-retardant foam and finished with an additional retardant spray coating, Recticel's Safeguard Bale provides a more consistent and predictable surface to absorb impacts. Furthermore it is longer-lasting, light and more aesthetically pleasing compared with traditional straw-bales.
The Sodertälje Arena is used by two professional clubs and is played on for some 40 hours per week. After 5 years of intensive use, the artificial grass was replaced, which is usual for top league fields. The re-bounce® shock pad was still in perfect shape after 5 years of intensive use and could stay in place which resulted in a substantial cost saving.
re-bounce® is the brand for all sports products manufactured by Recticel. Our high-quality, tailor-made shock pads and underlays have been developed in co-operation with installers and turf manufacturers and are completely suitable for outdoor and indoor use.
