SISGrass electric machine at FC Barcelona

For the 5th year running, SIS Pitches is proud to exhibit at SALTEX, being held at the NEC on 30th and 31st October.

SALTEX is the leading turf management event for groundscare volunteers, professionals and manufacturers, organised annually by the IOG. The event showcases the best the industry has to offer in the management of natural, hybrid and artificial sports pitches.

Our experts will be on-hand at this year’s event to showcase our:

  • SISGrass hybrid grass technology, discussing our new 100% electric machine
  • New SISTurf synthetic grass range

New 100% electric machine

Two years after revolutionising the hybrid grass market with the fully electric SISGrass Universal machine, we have launched a second-generation SISGrass machine, which is also 100% electric.

Until now, 100% electric machines of this size were non-existent in the industry, but this innovation can stitch a full-size football pitch in just seven days using electricity, a huge step forward in reducing the environmental footprint of each pitch installation.

With the technology proven on the SISGrass Universal machines over the past two years, we are the first to upscale this electric technology in our large machines, already seeing huge benefits at recent installations completed at FC Barcelona’s training ground, Camp Tito Vilanova, and Camp Nou.

The new electric technology replaces the hydraulic element of the patented installation mechanism which provides the motion and force to insert the SISGrass fibres into the pitch profile.

To find out more about our new machine, visit us at SALTEX on stand G222.
