The Surface

So what’s so special about Proslope’s ProSnoTM Matting?

The choice of surface material for any project is critical. The long held mantra of ski coaching: ‘safety, enjoyment and learning’ has never been more important in today’s age of litigation.

Proslope Matting can be used for new or existing slopes. Its design allows it to be laid easily and tailored to fit existing steel brush matting.

It is a multi-disciplinary product that can be used for: general snowsports coaching and learning; alpine race training; freestyle or snowtubing and tobogganing.

People that have used it, tell us it feels so much safer and therefore inspires confidence. It has no protruding metal or voids to catch stray digits or limbs.

We use a geotextile shock membrane that cushions users against any accidental falls, thereby lessening shock impacts.

Proslope’s ProSnoTM surface combines the best of all worlds. Using tried and tested brush technology, its secret lies in it’s Variable Height Filaments (VHF - patent pending). This allows skis or boards less surface contact (less friction and therefore reduced heat build up, but better grip and edge control when in contact with the lower height bristles.

We use PolyButyl Teraphthallate (PBT) mono filament which is recognised in the industry as the most durable.

Combined with our ‘Superslide™’ additive it is probably one of, if not the quickest slope surface on the market.

We also offer Annual Service and Maintenance Contracts to artificial dry ski slope operators ensuring that your snowsports investment is kept in optimum condition, looking nice and also safe for customers.
