HOCKEY PITCH MAINTENANCE & CLEANING

We offer Hockey pitch regular maintenance, cleaning, part rejuvenation, full rejuvenation, re-lining and repairs for sand based and sand dressed surfaces. Also cleaning, maintenance, chemical treatments, rejuvenation and repairs for water-based surfaces.

SAND FILLED

These are popular for club/community level and for schools and offer a fast game with ‘even’ cushioning for the ball. Typical pile height is 18-24mm and the surface is filled with silica sand. This surface can become contaminated and very compacted leading to a slippery, dangerous surface that is prone to flooding.

WE RECOMMEND:

Regular Pitch Maintenance
A regular maintenance programme is recommended from new as this will allow your surface to outlast manufacturers warranties by as much as 50% and ensures good playability throughout the year. Maintenance programmes include; surface debris collection, de-compaction, infill filtration and chemical treatment.

Full Rejuvenation
Older pitches can often become deeply contaminated as they come to toward the end of their life, the solution is to use a compressed air system to fully remove and replace the infill and can guarantee an extra 4-5 years of quality play

Part Rejuvenation
A highly cost effective solution involving partial infill replacement that will ensure an extended life for previously un-maintained older surfaces.

Pitch Re-lining
We offer a full and comprehensive re-lining service using two pack polyurethane paints to ensure a long lasting, high quality finish.

Pitch Repair
Over time seams can begin to fail and need to be repaired or patched urgently. After the repair, turf is graded to match the current pile height of the pitch to ensure even ball roll and safe quality play.

SAND DRESSED

These are popular for club/community level and for schools and offer a fast game with ‘even’ cushioning for the ball. Typical pile height is 16-20mm (shorter than sand filled) and the surface is filled to 60-80% with silica sand. This surface can become contaminated and very compacted leading to a slippery, dangerous surface that is prone to flooding.

WATER BASED

Water-based hockey pitches have an extremely dense, short pile. It is important that they are irrigated and kept continuously wet as the water acts as a wearing factor for the grass and affects playability; as much as the sand in a filled or a dressed pitch does.

Due to the constant spraying with water, these pitches can suffer from lots of algae, moss and mould issues.

WE RECOMMEND:

Pitch Cleaning
Rotary cleaning heads are used to loosen debris. Water is jetted into the surface and then the contaminated material is sucked up into a tank ready for safe disposal.

A regular maintenance programme is recommended from new as this will allow the surface to outlast manufacturers warranties by as much as 50% and ensures good playability throughout the year

Pitch Chemical treatment
It is recommended that the pitch is treated with Algoclear Pro to eradicate algae, moss and mould every 6 months.

Pitch Re-lining
We offer a full and comprehensive re-lining service using two pack polyurethane paints to ensure a long lasting, high quality finish.

Pitch Repair
Over time seams can begin to fail and need to be urgently repaired or patched. After the repair, turf is graded to match the current pile height of the pitch to ensure even ball roll and safe quality play.
