Match Pitch Case Study
Here at Stuart Canvas we pride ourselves on our Non-Turf skills. We use the latest tools and dual grade laser during our installations and strive to reach the highest standards with our SCP Deluxe System. A typical match pitch installation would follow the process below:
- The system is marked out and the correct positioning is confirmed and signed off.
- We then use a dual grade laser to confirm the gradients and to ensure the system marries into the existing contours. The laser is also used to ensure our excavation and base formation is uniformed.
- The system is then excavated to the design specification. Stuart Canvas ensures that this process is done methodically, minimising the amount of travel time our plant crosses your outfield or playing field, to avoid causing unnecessary damage.
- Once the base has been excavated, the formation layer is then consolidated. The excavation depth is then checked using the dual grade laser.
- Once the base levels have been confirmed we then import the required amount of secondary layer, stone aggregate.
- When the secondary layer has been levelled, it is then rolled and consolidated. The dual grade laser is used to confirm the secondary later depth and to ensure there has been no movement during compaction.
- A dynamic primary later is imported, which is compacted and levelled until it falls within the ECB guidelines. As this is the final playing surface, we always strive to exceed the surface level requirements.
- The SCP 12 batting shockpad is laid out and secured to the base. Our SCP Deluxe carpet is then positioned and fixed at one end.
- It is then tensioned and secured to the base around the remaining sides, leaving the system ready for use.
