How Artificial Turf Gets Fit Again After The Pandemic

The re-commissioning of artificial turf fields according to the restrictions imposed by CoVid-19 requires highly efficient solutions. Experts primarily recommend the multiple machine solutions from SMG for maintenance before starting over again. These perform consistently with the same functional principle and guarantee perfect physical conditions and safe playing on artificial turf. One of these recommended solutions is the TurfKing TK1502, which meets the requirements of the FIH and ESTC down to the smallest detail, for both filled and unfilled artificial turf.

SMG machines use their rotary brush with adjustable vibrating screen to separate the coarse dirt (stones, leaves, etc.) from the filling material and dispense it to the playing field in precisely metered amounts. The decisive factor is a constant amount of filling material in the underfilled areas. Refilling is almost not neededdue to the unique SMG principle, the material always stays where it belongs. The logical consequence: If the filling material is correctly inserted, the discharge of granules into the environment is significantly reduced and almost impossible through the careful use of the care and cleaning machines from SMG. An even backfill height is also supported by appropriately adapted driving tactics.

SMG offers free information, advice and support for targeted measures against the discharge of fillers and corresponding timetables. The company not only produces the required maintenance equipment, but also organizes training courses and courses for the greenkeeper or facility managers.

The result of our 360o service are prickly clean artificial turf pitches with a longer lifespan and excellent playability - and last but not least the end of the microplastic problem. The trailer device TK1502 shown is available from approx. € 15.000.
