Reviving Tired Turf

Do you have a synthetic field that is looking tired? Short on staff to maintain the field on a consistent basis? Unsure how to fix a loose inlaid line? Does your field have enough infill?

The Revive process uses a specially developed, single operator machine to remove contaminants from in-filled and water-based synthetic turf carpet as well as polymeric surfaces. Rotary brushes penetrate deeper into the in-fill than static brushes, breaking up the contamination crust and removing it with a powerful vacuum filter system for disposal off-site.  The sand or rubber in-fill is then filtered, dropped back onto the surface and worked in using a static brush head in the first instance, followed by a drag mat. The process helps reduce compaction of the surface enhances its porosity and helps maintain the playing

Kevin Loutsenhizer at Replay Maintenance says it’s an increasing trend: “We are seeing more and more customers who want regular maintenance to support what their grounds people are doing.  Service agreements are a great way of scheduling the specialist maintenance of synthetic sports surfaces but at a known cost over the short or long-term. State-of-the-art processes, such as Revive, keep synthetic sports fields playing better for longer.”

Clients say one of the best features is they can contact Replay at any time if they have any queries about any of the artificial sports surfaces we have. RePlay advice and guidance are always really useful and they respond quickly to requests for repairs, which are very reasonably priced.

All Replay service agreements, which can be set at intervals to suit the customer include, free of charge, pre and post-maintenance tests. This records the difference the maintenance is making to the playing surface and enables the operator to plan future maintenance far more effectively.

As leisure operators look to streamline their operations, many more are
contracting out the maintenance of artificial sports surfaces to specialist
companies under long-term service agreements.
