Removing and storing stadium covers has never been so easy! That’s what facilities throughout North America are discovering after investing in Covermaster’s new TarpMate Air Rollers.
The revolutionary tarp roller system is rapidly gaining popularity and it’s easy to see why. Traditional roller systems use rigid plastic rollers to install, remove and store field tarps. Because the rollers come in a maximum length, extra time is needed to fold wider tarps and storage is limited to areas that can accommodate the rollers.
But TarpMate Air Rollers offer an exciting option. Made of heavy-gauge vinyl, the tube is inflated with a backpack leaf blower and the football field tarps are then rolled on to the lightweight tube. Since the roller can be produced to the length of the tarp, folding isn’t necessary. And the best part? The tube — now carrying single or multiple tarps — can be deflated, folded and stored much more easily, and much more compact than its rigid counterpart.
Several sports teams have jumped on the air roller bandwagon. Last March, the Baltimore Ravens invested in an air roller for handling and storing their Evergreen turf blankets. The product is saving time and money at stadiums that serve as home to several NFL teams — from the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos to LA’s Rams and Chargers.
All have confirmed that the new system doesn’t just save time, but puts less strain on the personnel and field covers. If stadiums want to manage their field covers more efficiently, using fewer people in a shorter length of time, the TarpMate Air Roller is a winning solution.
