Maintenance – Rejuvenation
SGS has carried out a substantial amount of rejuvenations over the last decade and we have invested heavily in acquiring both the machinery and knowledge over the years to perfect our service.
SGS Pitch Rejuvenation will restore an artificial grass pitch to regain performance. SGS Rejuvenation is a specially developed process using specialised machines to extract the dirty and contaminated sand from the pitch and replace with clean sand. The Rejuvenation process includes a full cleaning and de-compaction service, using various specialist maintenance machines. Our machines will help to get deeper into the pile and agitate below the surface.
We have a compressed air system that opens the fibres up on a sand filled pitch and remove the infill sand. The contaminated sand can then be lifted from the pitch and disposed off site. This air system protects the fibres of the pitch while also removing dirty over used infill.
The rejuvenation process can re-instate sand or sand and rubber sports surfaces back to “like new” appearance and most importantly regain the original performance. SGS Rejuvenation is a specially developed process using specialised machines to extract the dirty and contaminated sand/rubber from your pitch and replace with new clean sand/rubber.
Why is SGS Rejuvenation needed?
After years of play, even with the most comprehensive maintenance program in place, in certain circumstances, pitches become clogged and choked. This can be due to a variety of a factors including weather, location of the pitch and play intensity.
In some circumstances this can cause a pitch to drain poorly and a layer of film develops on the surface rendering it unplayable and dangerous. This is the point when radical action is needed by either replacing the surface which may not fit into budgetary constraints or undertake a full SGS Rejuvenation.
