How to carry out refurbishment work after the artificial turf has expired
Jul 14, 2018

Generally speaking, the artificial turf is used for 6 to 8 years. If the site is in use, it will face replacement and renovation work. So what problems and precautions will be encountered in a site renovation process? 

Renovation means dismantling the old ones and replacing them with new ones.


The first step is to dismantle the old lawn, which is a key link. The first thing to pay attention to during the demolition process is not to damage the original foundation. The foundation is generally cement, asphalt, or other lime soil cushion. During the installation process, the lawn is bonded to the ground or joint tape or non-woven fabric through adhesive. In the process of dismantling, use tools to remove the lawn and the joint layer. Do not smash the foundation.


 The second step is to handle the removal of old turf, quartz sand, rubber particles. The old materials are not usable. After many years of use, the old materials have lost their inherent properties, and they are mixed with dust. Garbage is dirty. 


In the third step, the dismantled materials are all in tons, so we must fully consider the quotation process. When many novices go to the venue, they look at the lawns of the venues that are close to being bald. There will be less garbage to carry and clean up, which is not the case. Because the particles and quartz sand filled in the construction of the new site are almost unchanged, taking a standard football field as an example, the quartz sand it fills is about 200 tons or so, which is a huge garbage cleaning work, so Take full account when making budgets 


In the fourth step, before the site is paved with new artificial turf, it is necessary to clean up the site. Rinse the water with good conditions, clean the dust on the site, and then start the paving construction.
