SISIS return to FSB

SISIS have announced that they will be exhibiting at FSB Cologne, Germany from 7-10 November 2017 in Hall 10.2 stand B035.

Visitors to the show, which is held every two years, will be able to view a selection of the range of synthetic turf maintenance equipment available from the British manufacturer including the Osca, Brush-Pro, SSS1000 and the TIF complete with Flexicomb and straight brush.

The common misconception is that synthetic surfaces are maintenance free. Just like natural turf surfaces, synthetic surfaces require maintenance as soon as they are constructed if they are to perform to the standard expected of them. Regular and periodic maintenance is required to ensure that the playing surfaces achieve their full life expectancy.

As well as the products being on show, the SISIS team will be on hand to advise on how to prolong the life of synthetic playing surfaces.

SISIS Osca

The SISIS Osca is a tractor mounted powered oscillating brush with a 1.9 meter working width and is equally effective when used on synthetic turf with sand or rubber infill. The two oscillating brushes stand the carpet fibres up and redistributes the infill evenly, minimising compaction on the surface and improving its performance – giving consistent playing characteristics while preventing pile damage caused by reduced infill levels.

A contributory factor to the reduction of compaction is that the Osca’s working width will use fewer passes than other more conventional drag brushes to complete a pitch. Its aggressive brushing action agitates the upper infill level of the surface from side to side as well as brushing forward, helping reduce surface compaction and encourage the fibres to stand up straight which reduces the risk of contamination, drainage problems and leaves a consistent playing surface across the whole pitch.

SISIS Brush-Pro

The SISIS Brush-Pro is a ride-on brushing system comprising a pair of mid mounted oscillating units and three rear mounted brush units that that have been specifically designed for maintaining synthetic surfaces. The machine has been designed for maximum manoeuvrability and operator comfort which features an electric start, hydrostatic drive for forward/reverse and its brush combinations - oscillating for thorough periodic work and rear mounted brushes for more routine work.

SISIS SSS1000

The SISIS SSS1000 is a tractor mounted sweeper which can be pulled by any machine. There are no tools required for the adjustment of the brush or the angle of the draw bar and to make storage easy the draw bar lifts to an upright position. With an aluminium hopper with stainless steel mesh, any infill that is collected when using the machine is returned back down to the surface leaving it free from contamination of debris.

SISIS TIF with Flexicomb and straight brush

The Towed Implement Frame (TIF) is a towed brush combination system which is ideal for regular maintenance of synthetic surfaces. The Flexicomb and straight finishing brush combination is recommended for both sand and rubber infill surfaces. The Flexicomb ensures even distribution of infill and lifts the carpet pile while the straight brush produces a smooth level and eye-catching presentation. For rubber crumb surfaces a more aggressive brushing is required and this can be achieved by adjusting the crossbar on the Flexicomb to stiffen the bristles.

"yes -- and it looks as if jute doesnt have the strength to stop some weeds 'breaking through' -- they advise a total erradication of weeds prior to laying which kinda seems to destroy the point."
