Jebsen & Jessen Technology Turf & Irrigation launches porous rubber bunker liner

SandStop has been installed in multiple courses in Singapore and Malaysia.

Turf & Irrigation, a division of the Technology business unit of diversified Singapore-based industrial conglomerate Jebsen & Jessen Group, has launched SandStop, a porous rubber liner designed to ensure the long-term quality of golf bunkers.

SandStop is durable and can withstand extreme weather conditions such as heat and heavy rain. Without the need for special equipment, machinery, or any certified installation crew, the prefabricated rubber liners can be easily installed by laying and shaping them, gluing them together at the seams and covering the bunker with sand. The installation process for bunkers of 1,500 square feet can be completed within approximately one and a half hours. SandStop rubber liners can be easily removed for maintenance.

The liners are made from environmentally friendly materials, using a crumb rubber mixture from 100 percent recycled tires. SandStop liners are porous, allowing water to flow through the bunkers freely while holding the sand above in place. They act as an extension of the water drainage system.

“We are committed to constantly innovating and improving our products to deliver the best value to our customers, while upholding our health and safety standards to globally-recognized ISO 45001 and ISO 14001 standards,” said Philipp Hoffmann, regional director for Jebsen & Jessen Technology Turf & Irrigation. “When designing SandStop, we took into consideration the common challenges faced by golf course operators. Through intensive research and innovation, we enhanced the drainage function of our SandStop liners by improving water flow while preventing contamination from rocks and dirt. Extremely durable and long-lasting, SandStop reduces the costs associated with bunker maintenance.”

SandStop has been installed at several golf clubs in Singapore and Malaysia, including the historic Royal Selangor Golf Club in Malaysia.
