Maintenance Myths – Won’t a non-waxed surface require more work?

We are often asked this question. It is often thought that a non-waxed surface will require more upkeep and maintenance than a waxed surface.

Low maintenance non-waxed surface

In reality, synthetic fibre surfacing needs little maintenance. The nature of the material components means the fibres stay in place once laid. The surface also improves with use and age, ideal for a well-used arena that needs a hard-wearing and long-lasting surface.

The only maintenance it will ever need is rolling if you feel it needs it. Other than that, you can concentrate on your performance with one less job to do on the list!

Carpet Gallop is used by hundreds of people from hobbyists to Eventers, in the UK, Europe, the US and Middle East. It is suitable for polo yards, gallops, tracks, racecourses or lunge rings.
