The Matchsaver APP (Automated Pitch Protection) system is widely recognised as the most effective and advanced sports pitch covering system in the world. Matchsaver APP covers the sport pitch using two or more motorised rollers to deploy a specially designed weather-proof cover quickly and easily using minimal grounds staff. The motorised rollers travel either along the pitch (goal to goal) or across (sideline to sideline) dependent on the customer’s preference. To cover the pitch the rollers are driven forwards automatically deploying the covers to protect from rain frost snow and ice. To remove the covers the groundsman simply selects reverse and the rollers travel back to the opposite end of the sport pitch rolling up the cover leaving the pitch in perfect condition for the next game / training session.
The APP pitch covers have been developed in conjunction with leading agronomists to provide optimum protection for pitches at the highest level of international sports. Matchsaver covers are manufactured from a purpose made multi-layered Low Density Polymer material mix with UV stabilisation. This clear, transparent material allows 70% light transparency creating excellent germination conditions for natural grass. These germination properties have significantly improved the condition of grass on many of our customer’s sports fields with examples of yellow dormant grass pitches being transformed into healthy green grass in record time.
The APP covers have been fully tested between –40 and +75 degrees centigrade and designed to allow tractors with brush attachments to drive over them to remove snow. By blowing warm air under the covers they can be inflated acting as an alternative to under-soil heating. For clubs that already have under-soil heating installed, the insulating effect of the APP cover can significantly reduce heating bills and CO2 emissions.
