Schlingmeier Quarzsand

Quartz Sands for Playgrounds, Golf-Courses and Athletic Grounds

Selecting sands for playgrounds, golf-courses and athletic grounds is not easy. The decision requires plenty of investigations. The most important properties of a sand are colour, grain size distribution, grain shape, purity and composition. In addition, hygienic aspects are of importance.

Due to its high whiteness and brightness Crystal Quartz Sand from Schlingmeier is predestined for the arrangement of playgrounds, golf-courses and athletic grounds. The sand is free of organic impurities and hence nutrient concentration is extremely poor. Therefore, the development of undesired and noxious soil organisms is impaired. Quartz sand from Schlingmeier is multiple washed and free of impurities such as clay, soil, or gravel. The shape of the sand grains is subangular. Angular and subangular sand grains can improve the biomechanical properties of a ground. The domestic statutory thresholds for heavy metals in playgrounds are clearly undercut.

The following table shows sand qualities for a wide range of applications in leisure and sports.
