Sport Fields Heating
Most modern sports arenas are multi-functional buildings capable of hosting sport games and events, irrespective of weather conditions or huge numbers of attendees. The biggest challenge is to maintain perfect conditions on the field during all games, tough weather conditions and, in some situations, other events that are taking place on the field.
Laid down or plowed in, connected to available electrical power, and used when there are no players on the field, the electric heating solutions provide more than frost protection.
Electric sports field heating is, in most cases, the multi-purpose solution for stadiums. Such an energy efficient solution prevents the field from being adversely affected by frost and snow during the winter. Stadium heating serves as a growth and restoration stimulator for natural grass. All this ensures a better pitch that can extend the playable season, irrespective of the season or location.
The main reason for using electric heating is the simplicity and hassle-free qualities of the system compared to other solutions, where more mechanical equipment is needed to ensure the system functions well, alongside the risk of malfunction due to weather conditions.
The defrost systems for sport fields consist of electric heating cables, electronic thermostats, and installation accessories.
The digital thermostats with sensors ensure that optimal results are achieved with the least amount of energy possible.
Recommendations for Sport Fields Heating
One of the main tasks of sport field heating systems is to de-freeze the pitch just for an individual football game or support min +1 °C on the surface:
• Sport fields
The defrost systems may be used on natural and artificial sport field to prevent the formation of snow and ice on the surface of the field.
