Electric heating for stadiums

For professional and international stadiums, a very high standard of playing surface is required. It is important to eliminate the risk of match cancellations, particularly those associated with poor weather conditions e.g. heavy rainfall or ice and snow. According to FIFA’s technical recommendations and requirements, 5th edition (paragraph 4.2): “(..) In cold climates, the playing field should be equipped with an underground heating system to prevent it from freezing in extreme winter conditions.’’ 

Electric heating systems keep the ground temperature at an appropriate level and help to maintain a good quality playing field during the whole season. We offer a wide variety of heating cables/mats and thermostats for installation in football fields and other sport playgrounds. 

We have a proven expertise in electric heating solutions dedicated to stadiums used for football games, athletics or many other sports. Our solutions work perfectly for natural as well as artificial grass. 
 
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, 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. Field heating also 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.

Our defrost systems for sport fields consist of heating cables or mats, controllers, and installation accessories. The controllers with sensors ensure that optimal results are achieved with the least amount of energy possible.
