Sand filled artificial sports pitches can be installed in many area sizes including 19m x 36m & 45m x 65m although they can be tailored to be specified & designed to suit many different requirements of the client. Playgrounds, parks and schools have these excellent multisport facilities constructed as they offer a safe contained environment for different sports to be played on the same sports surfacing, and these sports include hockey, netball, tennis, basketball and football.
Artificial Sports Pitch Maintenance
It’s important to carry out regular proactive maintenance to your sand filled sports surface, this could include drag brushing to redistribute the sand infill and prevent it becoming compacted, as well as deep cleaning to remove dirt from within the pile. Having a regular cleaning and maintenance plan in place will help to keep the synthetic grass surfacing safe for use and ensure that it’s performance qualities are as good as possible.
Sometimes these sand filled synthetic grass sporting facilities require reactive maintenance as they can fall into disrepair or a lack of regular investment. The sports system can suffer from poor porosity and flooding, hard underfoot, poor playing conditions and moss & algae attack – often known as algal squidge. This can occur when the surfacing remains unduly wet and / or poor draining qualities and with the sand infill contaminated with dirt, grime and nature. Algal squidge can then occur and this looks like slime and algae on the surface and it will require complete all weather surface rejuvenation, replacement, renovation or revitalisation.
The sand infill will be removed and new silica sand will be installed which will remove the algal squidge and improve the drainage, playability and flooding. These attacks will also affect other types of sports MUGA surfaces such as Tar Macadam & EPDM Polymeric Rubber.
