It is always recommended to consult with your architect, golf course builder, or physical engineer to determine best practices.
Over the years, we’ve seen a number of innovative methods to install Sandtrapper. They address particular issues in creative ways to address specific needs of the course.
In northern climates where the freeze-thaw cycle is a concern, some superintendents have used construction adhesive to secure the top of the sod staple to the bunker liner. Applying a small dab of adhesive on the staple top and spreading/smoothing to the liner increases the surface area in contact with the liner. The result is a significant reduction of heaved staples when frequent freeze/thaw cycles occur during the winter months.
Some facilities prefer not to overlap seams. Instead, we’ve seen where the edges of Sandtrapper are butted together and set with a bead of contstruction adhesive.
Some rocky soil conditions make it extremely difficult to secure Sandtrapper with sod staples. In these situations, we’ve seen facilities place a steel/spike and washer through the liner and hammer into the rocky soil.
In situations where the subsurface is entirely bedrock, we’ve seen facilities tap pilot holes with masonry bits and drive masonry anchoers (with washers) to secure the liner.
