Power Grooming Infill Decompaction Synthetic Clay Tennis Courts is a process that decompacts the artificial clay infill and evenly redistributes it over the court surface. The Power Grooming process is more vigorous than Drag Brushing and is designed to decompact the infill, move migrated infill back onto the playing surface and keep the stabilization mat pile upright. It is very important to keep the fill at the correct levels on the stabilization mat as it is constantly at risk of migrating to the non playing areas through use. Decompaction of the infill helps keep the synthetic clay draining freely, enlarging the voids between the particles and thereby enlarging the space between which water can flow.
This process backs up cleaning processes and can be combined with either Regular Cleaning and/or Drag Brushing to form a maintenance regime package to suit the surface, its use and location, and the Facility Budget.
Power Grooming will help:
- Keep the surface in prime playing condition
- Maintain traction and reduce slip
- Redistribute infill over the surface
- Keep the artificial pile upright
- Reduce the impact of moss & algae
- Decompact the infill and help maintain drainage
