Three portable cricket pitch trays have been installed by StrathAyr, with the pitches constructed and maintained by the MCC, as a joint research and development program into the use of this technology under UK conditions.
The TransportAyr system is the ultimate roll out turf tool that has been discovered around the world, from Australia to New Zealand and the UK. This custom-designed StrathAyr equipment ensures a sporting field is capable of hosting a range of sports, from rugby to AFL, soccer, cricket and more.
The TransportAyr is self-propelled and can be extended and contracted under its own power. It has full hydraulic motor steering and the ability to load removable wickets/cricket pitches on extendable trailers. It has high toque and high speed drive motors to get the job done effectively and efficiently.
StrathAyr’s interest in resolving the problems associated with the incompatibility of cricket and football sharing a ground was sparked by the advent of World Series Cricket. The company’s first major venue turfing contract resulted from damage caused to the outfield of Waverley Park, Melbourne, by the movement of the concrete tub wickets to the centre of the ground. This world series innovation inspired StrathAyr’s interest and future developments.
HIGH TRAFFIC TURF TECHNOLOGY
Netpave is a porous pavement solution that is used to provide structure and strength to grass surfaces to ensure they resist surface damage and root compaction under stress from heavy loads such as cars and equipment.
Netpave 25 is simply laid onto the grass surface and is immediately ready to be used, no excavation or special equipment required. This porous pavement product can be used to provide better traction for vehicles on grass and strengthen the surface against damage.
Netpave 25 is extremely flexible and provides an attractive and stable structure, through which grass can be grown. Being only 25mm thick, Netpave 25 will be almost invisible after 2-3 months of turf growth.
Because of its protective capability, Netpave 25 is ideal for use in turf carparking areas and areas that receive a high amount of foot traffic.
Netpave 50 is a more heavy-duty solution, suitable for car parks, pathways and access routes. To install, sites must be first excavated and a sub-base installed. Netpave 50 is simple to use and install with units connected by lugs and slots. Netpave 50 can be laid on uneven and steep surfaces, without it breaking up.
For best results, Netpave 50 can be filled with gravel or loam, which will stay inside the cells and not migrate. Once Netpave 50 is filled with loam and seeding with grass, the area can be used to bear heavy loads and high foot traffic, without the risk of damage.
Netlon® mesh elements
Netlon® mesh elements are the natural solution for overflow car parking, fire access roads and high-use amenity areas. When Netlon® mesh elements – 50mm by 100mm pieces of flexible polypropylene mesh – are blended uniformly within a rootzone profile the mesh elements reinforce three dimensionally, acting like thousands of springs to improve load bearing ability and resistance to compaction.
