Hydraway drainage specialists supply all-weather racing systems to keep races going and ensure the safety of both the horses and their jockeys.
The drainage system installed under a horse track plays a critical role in maintaining a consistent and safe racing surface. Horse racing facilities present challenges on how to drain the track in a timely and efficient manner.
If a horse track’s drainage infrastructure doesn’t efficiently remove water, the track can become dangerously inconsistent. If areas of the track begin to have pooled water, the chances of injury-causing accidents significantly increase. Similar concerns are associated with soil and dirt erosion causing an uneven track.
No other sporting turf faces the challenges of large animals repeatedly trampling over it like a horse track system. Traditional pipe drainage systems have numerous flaws that could create dangerous conditions.
Perforated pipe systems are prone to clogging issues. The amount of dirt on a track and grassy areas on the infield presents a recipe for drainage issues. Standing water, track erosion, and hazardous conditions are among the many concerns that must be addressed. Over time, blocked drains could completely stop water flow.
Horse track systems that don’t drain properly can cause races to be delayed or canceled. When your track isn’t featuring races, it causes a significant drop in revenue. If you are in an area with multiple options, customers will ultimately attend tracks with reliable race times and schedules. Hydraway is here to ensure you have an all-weather racing system.
Hydraway’s innovative flat drain design includes a needle-punctured fabric bonded to the system. This fabric material prevents debris, silt, mud, or other unwanted compounds from entering. The Hydraway flat drain technology is an entirely clog-resistant solution. Water flows quickly and continuously through over 70% of its surface, allowing the Hydraway system to maintain a safe racing surface.
Hydraway’s distribution network allows worldwide delivery of customized systems. Hydraway’s customizability makes it an ideal solution for even the largest projects because it can ship in coils up to 2,250 feet.
Traditional perforated drainage systems are delivered with a condition known as coil memory. Coil memory is caused by the pipes curling up after being wrapped tightly during the shipping process. The curling makes installation more difficult and adds another step to the process.
Our flat drain design systems are easy to transport to any worksite from one of our worldwide distributors. Once the custom length coils arrive, they easily unroll and can be dropped into a drainage trench. With no coil memory, no additional steps are necessary to let your new flat strip drain system be put in place.
When you have a flat drain, supplied by Hydraway, installed at your horse track, you bring peace of mind. Knowing you’ve put in a horse track system that addresses riders and horses’ safety concerns and upholds the integrity of the track, you can focus on other elements of your business.
While Hydraway offers a clog-resistant solution, it also allows more water intake. Our flat drain design increases the water flow rate, keeping water draining away from areas you don’t want. Even if a traditional system isn’t clogged, its lower flow rate will leave water pooling at intake areas because it simply cannot handle heavy rains.
Hydraway has never experienced a failure due to manufacturing defects or design. Hydraway is the long-term solution to your residential and commercial drainage problems. What more peace of mind could you ask for than a 0% failure rate?
One of our specialties at Hydraway is providing retrofitting solutions. If your current drainage system has failed or is not meeting your standards, we can fix that. Our experts design a system that will handle all of your needs. We can retrofit any system, whether you need to drain a track or find a new runoff area.
