Pryor & Sons because we too believe if a job is worth doing its worth doing properly.
The idea of heating a football pitch is to make the pitch playable in winter conditions. If a match has to be cancelled for frost or snow the financial costs are phenominal. We are talking hundreds of thousands for some cases. In recent years a lot of clubs have seen the importance of having pitches heated and many clubs are now also heating their training grounds. K.E. Pryor & Sons have installed systems at some of the most well known clubs in the world, please visit their website for more details. Back in 1979 Ken Pryor deleloped a innovative method for installing the pipes into a pitch without digging it all up. Two parallel trenches are dug at opposite sides of the pitch for the sub mains to be installed and a specially made plough is used to pull in the heating pipes.
