Construct An Indoor Carpet Field
The surface quality of the carpet directly affects the quality of the flooring and the football pitch quality, as undulations (fluctuations) on the surface of the soccer pitch will adversely affect the comfort of the game. For this reason, when the upper layer filler is being applied, 3m long gauge is applied to prevent undulation on the surface of the soccer pitch.
After forming a smooth surface on the astro turf, the pitch is compressed with a power cylinder, which should maximum 1 ton in weight, without corrupting the smoothness of the soccer pitch. Maximum care should be taken to avoid surface collapses and fluctuations during this process. Possible fluctuations can be fixed with the help of material reinforcement and gauging.
- Wire Fence Construction:
With the completion of the football pitch surface, it is now necessary to separate the carpet area with a wire fence. To do this, there are many different options such as Panel Fence, Steel Wire Mesh or PVC Coated Galvanized Wire Mesh. Because of its economic structure and its ease of application and maintenance, galvanized wire is the most commonly used solution. The production of wire fence is made with galvanized and PVC coated wire in the form of 3.5mm thickness and 5cm x 5cm intraocular distance. Wall grass also can be used in this purpose.
- Establishment of the lighting system:
There are two systems used for Artificial turf carpet pitch lighting. The first one is lighting with metal halide lighting systems, and the other is lighting with LED lighting systems which are known for saving energy nowadays. Metal halide armature systems are still preferred due to their low operating costs. Click for example projects for both types of lighting.
- Artificial turf flooring
Turf Carpet pitches with completed surfaces become ready for the artificial turf application.
- Laying of felt and artificial grass carpet on the surface of the pitch
First, a felt is installed on the pitch surface according to the customer’s preference. The synthetic turf rolls, which are specially produced according to the field measurements, are laid on the felt to cover the entire surface of the pitch.
- Cutting and fixating the joints of rolls
The edges of the Synthetic Turf Rolls are cut properly to be laid on the surface of the pitch and made ready to be joined together. Later on, adhesive is applied on the joints and two rolls are glued together leaving no gap in between. In this way, all rolls of the pitch are glued to each other to establish a single piece.
- Placing Game Lines on the Carpet Pitch
Following the gluing the joints of turf rolls, all lines that are determined in accordance with the site project are placed onto the artificial turf carpets.
- Installing Carpet Pitch Filler
Following the gluing of joints of turf rolls and assembling of the lines, the carpet pitch is now ready to be filled. In accordance with the technical specifications of the preferred Synthetic Turf, a homogeneous sand fill and then an SBR fill are distributed on the surface of the pitch. It is important to note here that the filling should be distributed homogeneously throughout the field. As INTEGRAL, we always use full automatic filler machine option for Our projects.
- Brushing the Surface of the Turf Carpet Field and Preparing for the Game:
The filling surface is brushed in a regular and continuous manner and delivered to the customer ready for use.
- Installing the nets of Pitch Ceiling and Goal Posts:
- According to the preferences of INTEGRAL customers, a protective net is drawn over the pitch and behind the goal posts. Top nets are made of parachute yarn number 66 and 72 with 2 x 12 or 15 x 15 spacing. Back-goal nets are made of yarns numbered 144 and 180 with a spacing of 12 x 12 or 15 x 15.
