What is Drag Matting?

Drag matting is a servicing procedure which is carried out on a local sports facility closest to you to spread the sand infill evenly around the area. As well as evenly spreading infill over the 2G or 3G pitch drag-matting maintenance will help remove any unwanted litter, weeds and vegetation from the surface. Failure to remove these from the all-weather synthetic turf sports surface could lead to pitch becoming the perfect habitat for moss and algae to grow to form a drainage inhibiting layer.

This moss and algae layer mixes with the infill and is trodden into the synthetic turf fibres causing the infill to compact and prevent water from draining through the artificial carpet correctly causing water to hold and puddle on the surface. In some circumstances to resolve or rectify this problem, the all-weather sports surface may need to undergo reactive maintenance in the form of rejuvenation or resurfacing. The turf drag brushing process can also be done to remove contaminants from within the grass and keep the surface and its surrounding area performing well.
