The award-winning SPORTFIX CLEAN system is a drainage and filtration system that captures and retains microplastics from artificial sports pitches. The drainage system was installed around the entire perimeter of the new 3G pitch at Creasy Park.
The channel is made from 100% recycled composite and has an additional geotextile wrapped pipe in the base. It is then topped up to pre-determined levels with a unique filter substrate material.
SPORTFIX CLEAN captures any microplastics from surface water run-off and particles transported on shoes and clothes. The system prevents microplastics from entering their way into the watercourse, more than a traditional drainage channel.
