We recommend that your new or existing sand based surface be a minimum depth of 125mm ( 5" ) prior to the installation of Sports fibre.
Mixing Ratio: Sportsfibre is blended into the top 3-4" of sand, spread rates are dependable on the quality of silica sand and intended uses/disciplines. As a guide we recommend 3Kg per square metre for: General Schooling - Dressage - Showjumping
Installation Of Sports.
Ensure your surface is level and moist if possible.
To calculate the coverage of each bale, take the bale weight and divide by 3, this will give you the square metre coverage, divide that figure by the width of the strip you are distributing in.
example: Bale weight 320kg divided by 3.0 = 106.66 divided by 5 = 21.33 linear metres at a 5m width
Distribute evenly the fibre from each bale into the marked area.
Use a tractor mounted power harrow/stone burier for the first pass at approx 1” depth to fully open the fibre then roll and begin second pass.
Blend the fibre into the top 3”, until an even spread of fibres is achieved. A further pass may be required to achieve a thorough mixing.
Moisten the surface with each pass, roll the surface followed by grading, ideally the leveller should have a crumble roller and sprung tines.
