Expectations for sports surfaces are always high and the pressure for the best surface possible only ever increases. It’s therefore no surprise that groundsmen across the UK are fast realising the benefits using Toro irrigation for their stadiums and sports and training grounds can bring.
Headlining the Toro range at SALTEX was the Lynx central control system with a host of compatible Toro sprinklers such as Infinity 55 with Smart Access, Flex 55, the TS90 and the T7 infield sprinklers with the Turf Cup and the Turf Guard soil monitoring system which monitors temperature, moisture and salinity. The reason for this selection is thanks to their performance in situ in stadiums and training grounds the length and breadth of the country.
Since the Toro Lynx central control system made its debut in a sports environment at Headingley Stadium, the West Yorkshire home of Leeds Rhinos Rugby League Club, six years ago, numerous other sports stadiums have chosen Toro irrigation too, including Leicester City Football Club’s King Power stadium and their brand new training facility and also Leeds United Football Club for both its stadium and training facility.
As well as the huge technological advances and design benefits that using Toro irrigation brings, customers also appreciate the flexibility and versatility it offers. Whether you’re opting for a complete system upgrade or part renovation, Toro delivers true innovation.
Customers have long been extoling the virtues of a new system – water savings, uniform application, improved control, accurate monitoring – the list is extensive. And almost all of these attributes are applicable to system renovation too. For example, every replacement sprinkler head brings with it design improvements – it doesn’t just replace the sprinkler head, but addresses specific irrigation needs, such as arc retention to achieve accurate, precise watering with strict start-stop positioning without unwanted movement, eliminating dwell points at the end of the arc and subsequent pooling, ensuring even distribution so there is a lot more to Toro irrigation refurbishments than replacement.
