IVI Golf / Sandtrapper
Sandtrapper is the only bunker renovation product on the market designed specifically for applications in bunker settings. It is not a re-application of an existing product or a copied design. Each Sandtrapper product is a complete "ground up” design, incorporating over 40 years of erosion control expertise.
During the development of the Sandtrapper product back in the late 1990’s, considerable analysis was performed on the mechanics of water flow in bunker settings. The result was a specific selection of synthetic fibers and binders to create precise product characteristics that combat washouts or contamination. This resulted in two introductory styles -- Sandtrapper II (our premium performer) and Sandtrapper I.
Over the years, we've made additions to the product line-up. In 2004, we added a contamination-only choice with Sandtrapper GEO. In 2007, we added Sandrapper MD as a mid-range choice to fit between, Sandtrapper II and I. Just recently, we added Sandtrapper SL, a divergent technology for those looking at soft-loft product alternative.
Core Core Technology for Sandtrapper Bunker Liners
The selected fibers and binders that we develop create a "matrix” that is very distinct from one style to the next. This matrix is what defines each product and delivers the washout and contamination fighting properties professionals require. The guiding principle behind Sandtrapper was to deliver high performance and value for the selected application.
It has long been the philosophy of Sandtrapper product developers that the integrity of the three dimensional matrix is the single most important performance characteristic. That is why we incorporate higher denier (fiber thickness) and stronger, more durable binders in the product line-up. When looking at products with lightweight fibers and binders, the matrix will compress under the load of just a few inches of sand.
Without the matrix intact, sand particles cannot be constrained. Water dynamics will force sand particles into an active state during rain events, increasing the occurrences of washouts. For this purpose, consider carefully your product choices and balance the need for value and price against performance in the bunker setting.
