Matchsaver Automated Covers are widely recognised as the most effective and advanced sports pitch covering system available. A world-class solution to pitch protection Matchsaver Automated Covers are used by clubs to protect playing surfaces at both their main stadia and training grounds. Customers include Real Madrid, Chelsea and Torino.
Matchsaver Automated Covers protect pitches using two or more motorised rollers to deploy a weather-proof cover quickly and easily using minimal grounds staff. The motorised rollers travel either along the pitch (goal to goal), or across (sideline to sideline), dependent upon club requirements. To cover the pitch, the rollers are driven forwards, automatically deploying the covers to protect from rain frost and snow. To remove the covers, the groundsman selects reverse on the wireless remote control, and the rollers travel back to the opposite end of the pitch, rolling up the cover in readiness for the next game / training session.
The Matchsaver Automated System is delivered and assembled at your stadium or training ground by our specialist team within a short time frame to ensure your pitches are completely protected.
Flexible, Tough and Recyclable, Matchsaver covers are lightweight strong and water-proof with UV protection plus a light transmission rate of 70% to help aid germination on natural grass. Also suitable for protecting synthetic surfaces. Both waterproof and permeable material options are available.
When not in use the compact rollers can be stored discreetly behind the goal or sidelines. Alternatively other storage options are available. Club or sponsors logos can also be displayed on the rollers when not in use as a potential additional source of revenue.
One of the main benefits of the automated system is the speed and convenience that a pitch can be covered by wireless remote control with minimal personnel. As a result, Matchsaver automated covers are used by clubs at the highest level of international football. The covers have been developed in conjunction with leading agronomists who have helped develop them to provide optimum protection for pitches. Tough and hard wearing 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 football pitches. For example, yellow dormant grass pitches can be transformed into world-class playing surfaces. The material is stable between –35 and +60 degrees centigrade. For clubs that already have under-soil heating installed, the insulating effect of the Matchsaver cover can reduce heating bills and CO2 emissions.
