- 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
Your new or existing sand-based surface be a minimum depth of 125mm (5″) prior to the installation of SPORTSfibre.
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.
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.
320kg (example: divided by 3.0 = 106.66, divided by 5 = 21.33 linear metres at a 5m width)
