Columbus, Ohio - Long-time customer Columbus Crew Soccer Club has been working with COVERMASTER® for decades, sourcing the best tools to maintain their stadium and practice fields.

In February 2020, the Ohio MLS club jumped on the inflatable tarp roller bandwagon by purchasing five 80-foot custom TARPMATE AIR™ Rollers for easier handling of their EVERGREEN® turf blankets. For years, grounds crew had been hauling the turf blankets on and off the stadium field by hand and they soon discovered how much time and effort could be saved by investing in the revolutionary handling system.

The tarp rollers were such a hit that two months later the club bought an additional 11 air rollers at custom lengths for their practice pitches. The time-savings is substantial. Without air rollers, it would take up to six crew to unfold each tarp, spread it out, and pull it across the field. Using an TARPMATE AIR™ roller, two people unfold the tube, inflate it, and then roll out the blanket. Removal is just as quick and easy and blankets for the entire pitch can easily be stored on one or two pallets.

The inflatable tarp roller is now so popular that most orders for turf covers also include air rollers. For those already using winter turf blankets and still taking hours to fold and store them, a TARPMATE AIR™ inflatable roller is a proven cost-saving investment.
