Technical Surfaces are delighted to announce that they will now be using the Magnet Bar on their maintenance visits as a free service to all of their MatchFit® maintenance customers.

The Magnet Bar lifts and removes metal studs and other sharp metallic objects from the playing surface and will be utilised during all Technical Surfaces maintenance visits, minimising any hidden ‘nasties’ lurking within the pitch.

The latest addition to Technical Surfaces MatchFit® maintenance provision is a result of years of research and development into the factors impacting player safety and surface integrity.

Working with their partners, SMG Sportplatzmaschinenbau GmbH, Technical Surfaces have adapted and developed the Magnet Bar to fit seamlessly within their dedicated range of SMG maintenance machinery. As a result, they can now offer a service suitable for removing metal objects from 3G, sand-filled and water-based pitches, as well as athletics tracks.

Senior Technicians at Technical Surfaces have been extensively trialling the Magnet Bar across selected sites, and have removed metallic objects including:

  • Pins
  • Nails
  • Boot Studs
  • Earrings

Following the successful completion of these trials, use of the Magnet Bar is now being rolled out nationwide to Technical Surfaces entire customer base.

Technical Surfaces are incredibly proud of the time and effort put in by their team to continuing research of best practice in maintaining synthetic surfaces, which reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to maintaining standards.

The Magnet Bar is also available as an optional attachment within the R.E.D® Range of in-house maintenance machinery.

This incorporates the removal of metallic objects into the existing maintenance programme with ease, helping to ensure continued player safety in between maintenance visits.

Connecting via a tow bar attached to the bristle roller of the Sweeper Collector unit, the Magnet Bar (working width 0.92m) is available to purchase for Technical Surfaces R.E.D® Range Primary / Advantage Care packages.
