The Matchsaver Air Roller 8 (AR8) is a leading product within the Matchsaver product range. The product is designed specifically to protect sports fields from adverse weather protecting the pitch from rain frost and snow thus ensuring fixtures and training sessions go ahead as planned.
Matchsaver pitch covers have been developed in conjunction with leading agronomists to provide optimum protection for pitches used at the highest level in international sport. Made from a tough polymer based material with UV stabilisation, the clear transparent material allows 70% light transparency creating excellent germination conditions for natural grass. The germination properties of the covers 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 world class playing surfaces. The covers have been fully tested between –40 and +75 degrees centigrade and are tough enough to allow tractors (with plough attachment) to drive over them to remove snow. For clubs that already have under-soil heating installed, the insulating effect of the Matchsaver cover can reduce heating bills and CO2 emissions. Contact Matchsaver: Telephone: 01642 718945
