Sand cleaning according to the Sandmaster process

Cleaning with the Sandmaster process is important


Sand on playgrounds and sports facilities is subject to strict hygiene regulations. Regular cleaning is therefore essential to ensure the safety and health of everyone who comes into contact with it.

The most important specifications are provided by DIN standard 1176, which specifies, among other things, the following for playgrounds:

  • For a drop height (play equipment height) of two meters, the sand fill must be at least 20cm
  • For a drop height (play equipment height) of three meters, the sand fill must be at least 30cm

The standard also specifies that the “playaway effect” on playgrounds must be compensated for and therefore a height of 10 to 20cm must be added to the bulk material (sand). This results in a cleaning depth of at least 40 centimeters! If this cleaning depth cannot be achieved, then this does NOT comply with the above DIN standard!

Can the machines do that?

Only a very few machines manage this depth in continuous operation, but since a lot of bacteria settle in the lower layers, these must also be reached, because anything else is just surface cosmetics and this brings the children neither proper hygiene nor safety through the necessary fall protection.

Our cleaning performance is underpinned by regular scientific sand tests as well as our certified process – the SANDMASTER PROCESS.

With its own development department, Sandmaster designs and uses machines that meet practical requirements down to the smallest detail. At the same time, the certified Sandmaster process is a sustainable alternative to costly replacement: Cleaned sand is equivalent to new sand in terms of quality and protects the environment, since, among other things, numerous truck trips for transport become unnecessary. A clean sweep in every respect.

Sandmaster guarantees a permanent cleaning depth of up to 40 centimeters, machines with low-pressure tires that can drive gently over sandbox edgings and borders, as well as a patented depth measurement as proof, if desired also with an area report on the different sand depths, so sand supplements can be planned exactly for customers.

The “Sandmeister” are pioneers in the field of sand cleaning and today work all over Germany as well as in 15 European countries.

In addition to sand and gravel cleaning, Sandmaster also offers professional cleaning of artificial turf systems as well as plastic flooring and stone and concrete floors.

Sandmaster has taken the patented depth measuring system “SR Control” to a new level. In addition to the previously determined average depth for sand (or gravel) cleaning, we now also offer all customers a more meaningful cleaning protocol with much more detailed information upon request.

The customer receives a complete cleaning report with the following information:

  • Cleaned sand area in m²
  • Cleaned sand quantity in m³
  • Before and after photos of the square
  • 3D area report with depth data

3D area report with depth data – SR-ControlSandmaster thus creates absolute transparency, not only for our cleaning work, but also the possibility of precise planning of sanding supplements.

Freshly loosened sandy soils for elephants

The pachyderms also need soft sand

Elephants weigh a considerable amount. In the zoos, however, they often stand for hours on smaller spots, which has a negative effect on the strain on their joints. If the sandy ground is too hard, the feet hurt, so similar to us humans.

Older animals in particular suffer massively from hardened floors and a freshly loosened sand can’t be compared to anything, in fact, after cleaning the sand using the #sandmaster process, animal keepers showed us how delighted the elephants are when they step on the floor, wellness for troubled elephant feet!

Thus, Sandmaster has not only conquered the playgrounds, jumping pits and beach volleyball courts, but also some zoos with large sand areas where elephants, bears or other large animals dwell and depend on soft grounds.

Trärääää, Sandmaster goes wild!
