The following is SportsField Management’s Product Round-up regarding Field Paint and Marking Materials:
The Campey Line Marker
The Campey Line Marker (pictured above) is a simple, durable and easy-to-operate liquid transfer line marker. Marking material is transferred from the 30-liter hopper to the 10cm-wide marking wheel by a grooved rubber roller, which allows marking up to post or flag. It has pneumatic tires and an adjustable flow rate giving even and accurate lines. The tubular steel handles can also be adjusted for operator comfort. Many professional sporting clubs in the UK and Europe, such as the Salford Reds, have the line marker. In the United States, sports facilities including the Philadelphia Union Soccer PPL Park stadium and the New York Mets’ Citi Field use it regularly. The Campey Line Marker is even used in Costa Rica at the Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto, the home of Liga Deportiva Alajuelense.
