At Killmallock, the old carpet was removed using a specialist turf muncher machine which is the only one of its kind being used for refurbishment projects in Ireland. (Click here to view the Turf Muncher in action)

The turf muncher allows the old carpet to be removed without damaging the existing base. Sand and rubber infill is transferred into tonne bags and neatly rolls the carpet into 2m wide rolls which can then be recycled and monetised. JNC Premier Pitches are the only company in Ireland using this method when it comes to astro pitch refurbishment projects.

Pembroke Wanderer’s Hockey Club Dublin

JNC Premier Pitches in conjunction with Astro Turf Europe were delighted to win the contract for the removal of the old playing surface and installation of a new, “AstroTurf Hockey Classic System”.

The first choice since 1976 and still the fastest hockey surface in the world. Short passes or long shots; controlling the ball is easy. Thanks to the non-directional characteristic of the yarn the ball roll will be unrevealed and this high predictability results in a very fast hockey game.

System Specifications:

  • Surface: AstroTurf Hockey Classic
  • Sub base: 15 mm e-layer
  • New In-situ Shockpad
  • The site was adjacent to an existing club house, existing grass pitches, dressing rooms and car park and these facilities needed to stay functioning during the refit. JNC Premier Pitches has a full time in house Health & Safety Manager and a dedicated Contracts Manager in Lloyd Adams as site safety for Club members, the public, and our staff was essential.
