Maintaining synthetic sports surfaces with Kersten sweepers

Maintaining synthetic sports surfaces with Kersten sweepers 

Artificial sports surfaces, whether they are used for athletics, bowls, bowling greens, cricket, cricket nets, football, 5-a-side, 7-a-side, hockey, netball, rugby, or tennis they all suffer from the same problems as hard surfaces, with the build-up of organic debris and detritus which cause moss, algae and weeds due to the reduction of drainage in the surface. If these surfaces are not swept regularly, the materials breakdown, block the drainage and promote moss and algae. A Kersten sweeper will provide a superb solution for preventing and restoring these artificial or synthetic surfaces. The Kersten sweeper can be either pedestrian or tractor mounted attachment fitted with a rear three point linkage or by a front linkage. Kersten provide front linkages for Kubota, John Deere, New Holland or Stiga.

Need to maintain hockey, rugby, football, multi-use games areas (MUGAs), tennis courts, MUGA or athletic tracks, then Kersten have a great range of solutions for you.

Synthetic sports surfaces require a good maintenance programme in place from the start. Failure to regularly remove dirt, leaf debris and other detritus from the surface can lead to contamination of the infill. The key is going slowly enough to allow for a deep penetration, rather than trying to rush the process.
This disperses the infill evenly, preventing excess material being left on the surface whilst reducing compaction. Artificial surfaces suffer from the same problems as hard surfaces, with the build-up of organic debris and detritus.
If these surfaces are not swept, the materials breakdown, block the drainage and promote moss and algae. Regular maintenance of these surfaces is essential. All grounds staff make it a priority to provide a safe and consistent playing surface and with any large capital investment, the sooner a regular and consistent good housekeeping, care and maintenance system is established the more you will protect that investment.

With sports facilities that are open to, or may be used by, members of the public there are Health & Safety factors to be considered as well as financial ones. Your own care programme can be supported throughout the life of your facility by a Kersten Machines UK contract. This will ensure prolonged active life.
