Covermaster® Products Play Key Role in Cary, North Carolina
Cary, NC - Cary, North Carolina is unquestionably a sports town, home to the USA Baseball National Training Complex and WakeMed Soccer Park. A long-time Covermaster® customer, the town maintains a regular maintenance schedule that keeps both their training fields and equipment in top shape.
Overseeing the program is Jimmy Simpson, the town’s facilities management coordinator and current president of the Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA). Simpson has been part of the industry for 20 years and today oversees the maintenance of buildings and grounds for many of Cary’s sports and community facilities. This year’s purchases — a new 175x175-foot Raincover Ultra™ baseball field tarp and new sections of Evergreen® Radiant turf covers — will replace a few aging covers as they rotate through their inventory.
Raincover Ultra™ baseball field covers are the industry’s strongest, standing up to the removal of hundreds of pounds of water while keeping turf cooler and drier with the exclusive Covermaster® Shield-Tek coating technology. The low-friction, 100% sunblock surface resists dirt, making it easier to remove snow and ice without the extra weight of a heavier infield tarp. The dual-sided infield cover has a silver side to reduce heat build-up and a black side that draws warmth into the turf in colder climates.
Over at WakeMed Park, the new sections of Evergreen® Radiant turf blankets will protect the turf from adverse growing conditions and harsh winter temperatures, while encouraging earlier spring green ups.
