To maintain the quality of the tennis court, it is important to brush the court with the right artificial grass brushing machine at the right time.
On the edges of the tennis court, the pollution of the field is usually the worst. This affects the image of your field, and it can be dangerous due to slippery moss. This is why intensive cleaning is required, especially along the edges. The RotoBrush is a suitable brushing machine for artificial grass, to clean the mat and make it moss-free. Extra stiff, short fibers on a rotating brush aggressively brush the material out of the turf.
Brushing up fibers
Playing the field ensures that the grass fibers are pressed flat. By brushing the field with a stiff broom, such as the T-Brush, the fiber comes up again.
When the infill material is compacted, brushing up the fiber will after a while no longer be enough. The infill material will have to be loosened and decompacted. This improves playing characteristics such as cushioning and ball bounce on the field.
