A) We can commence work straightaway, as we keep specially made track curb in stock at all times.
Q) I have had aluminium curb stolen in the past and so I’m worried about the possibility of theft and vandalism. Is this likely to be a problem I should be aware of?
A) Sadly, the risk of vandalism – however small – is always a worry for sports facilities. However, our curb is made from PVC, and thus has no scrap resale value. This is not only cheaper and more durable than aluminium over the long term, but it also significantly reduces the risk of theft.
How not to do it…
As you will see from the image below taken in Leigh 2015, this is how NOT to clean and repair a track. The cleaning machine used in the image cleaned only 1/2 a lane width at a time, compared to our full lane width machines. Also, 20 small patch repairs were used where 1 larger repair would have been best to achieve a more visually pleasing track repair. Note that we clean a full width at a time and ensure patch repairs do not look like this after we have finished.
