Creates artificial root network to increase moisture retention.

100% chopped premium sand stabiliser, recommended for stabilising sand-based equestrian riding surfaces, providing increased cushioning and flexibility within the ‘root structure’ giving the surface superior lateral support and spring-like feel, making it an ideal additive for those wishing a firmer, more compact surface.

Benefits

  • Greater stability
  • Increased moisture retention
  • Reduces tendon and joint injury
  • Increased surface resilience
  • High energy return

Features

  • 50% increased volume over competitors’ fibre
  • Cut fibres (not shredded) offering complete consistency
  • Consistent blended colour

Advantages

  • Reduced maintenance
  • Europe’s leading sand stabiliser
  • Dust and latex removal

Installation

  • 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

 

We Recommend

Your new or existing sand-based surface be a minimum depth of 125mm (5″) prior to the installation of SPORTSfibre.

Mixing Ratio

SPORTSfibre is blended into the top 3-4″ of sand, spread rates depend on the quality of silica sand and intended uses/disciplines. As a guide we recommend 3kg per square metre for General Schooling, Dressage and Showjumping.

Surface Preparation

Ensure your surface is level and moist if possible.

Coverage

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.

Bale Weight

320kg (example: divided by 3.0 = 106.66, divided by 5 = 21.33 linear metres at a 5m width)
