Sand Top Ups
The migration of the infill on Artificial Turf, Synthetic Grass or AstroTurf surfaces means that periodically the infill will need topping up. Incorrect infill levels lead to excessive fibre wear, premature aging of the surface, inconsistent performance, and greatly increases the likelihood of compaction.
With a reduction of sand in a surface, abrasion levels increase which may lead to injury. With 3G pitches, the rubber infill is used to reduce the impact between player and surface, so levels are vital.
On some surfaces it may be necessary to remove excess infill or correctly re-spread across the whole of the surface.
