Sport Haus features a complete technical lab for the preparation and maintenance of your skis.

Experience, competence and manual skills of our ski men are supported by specific machines, allowing maintenance, repair and set up operations. Sole flattening, footprint, edge sharpening, tuning, waxing are performed on skis and snowboards.

Sport Haus has been opting for Wintersteiger as a main technology supplier, since its very beginning. The robotized automatic machine Discovery S plays a pivotal role in our laboratory, allowing to design and select most varied and personal tasks, from stone grinding base footprint structures to precise angle edges ceramic sharpening . Holes and scratches affecting ski bases are treated by a Basejet sole repairing machine, while rough works are performed on a belt grinding Sigma B machine. Where machines are not able to arrive, Franz’s expert hands are required.

Available operations are reported in the Service section of the PRICE LIST page

Main treatment deals with the running surface of skis : base and edges. Most frequent damages to the ski base, from simple scratches being caused by stone fragments to deeper holes when more or less hidden rocks are hit, are filled in by hot melting polyethylene resins of the same material and color of the ruined ski base. This task can be executed manually or by our Wintersteiger Basejet automated repair system, which can be set up to use the desired quantity and color of material coating over the points to be treated. The excess material is then removed with one or more manual passages on a Wintersteiger Sigma B, belt grinding machine that allows to combine different pressure and execution speed. The repaired ski or board base is then ready to get the most appropriate preparation.

The ski sole gliding attitude depends on how the micrometric surface structure behaves on the different snow crystal shapes, temperature and wet degrees. This is obtained by a micro carving process performed by a the stone grinding of our Wintersteiger Discovery S highly automated machine. This is being fully managed by its software programs that allows to set up an indefinite number of diverse operations for both edges and bases.

Ski edges get sharpened by ceramic discs with the desired cut and tuning angles. The machine is able to perceive the skis geometric dimensions to get the required working sequence. Once the required task has been selected, the operator loads the required lot of skis on a feeding support and after few minutes he simply recovers the finished ones to the other end of the machine.

When a personalised top service is being asked for, edges are going to be finished manually with passages set at appropriate angles and direction.

Last task is dealing with waxing. Or more waxes. Some of them simply act as a protection for the ski base or may help to keep it lubrified enough. Race skis ask for an art’s touch, requiring many hot passages, by brushing or ironing at an appropriate heat. For rental skis and boards a Wintersteiger Waxjet Pro hot roll machine is being used. Once the wax has been deposed by the first one , the ski is passed again on a special brush roll in the same machine.
