Artificial Grass AirDrain Dog Run Drainage http://airfieldsystems.com/artificial-grass-airdrain-dog-run-drainage/ Sat, 05 Nov 2016 01:10:45 +0000 http://airfieldsystems.com/?p=7842 Artificial Grass AirDrain Dog Run Drainage AirDrain Drainage was installed at a condominium complex in Honalulu, HI.  Roger at Southwest Greens  took us on word that AirDrain was the drainage for the job. He soon realized he had made the right choice!   A Pet Paradise in Paradise. Take a look at this Pet Relief installation! AirDrain lifts the turf up off of the concrete base 1″ to allow the urine to immediately flow through the turf and drain laterally to the exit drain. AirDrain is easily trimmed to fit in any shaped area from square to circle providing excellent performance and a more natural feel than other products. The addition of the Woof signage adds a bit of artwork and flare to the project and will surely be fun for the pets to run around.   Southwest Greens is a subsidiary of Shaw Industries. Shaw Industries Group, Inc. is the world’s largest carpet manufacturer and a leading floor covering provider with 25,000 associates worldwide. Shaw is a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc. Shaw supplies carpet, rugs, hardwood, laminate, resilient, and tile/stone flooring products, as well as synthetic turf.

AirDrain Artificial Grass Drainage Installed by NexGen http://airfieldsystems.com/airdrain-drainage-artificial-turf/ Fri, 04 Nov 2016 16:40:18 +0000 http://airfieldsystems.com/?p=7857 AirDrain Artificial Grass Drainage Installed by NexGen     NexGen Lawns installed artificial grass in those hard to maintain smaller landscaped areas with specialized air panels through AirField Systems. The AirDrain panels provide an extra one inch lift of air circulation which allows for water to quickly and easily drain through. The AirDrain panel is able to tolerate the harsh heat and bitter cold which classifies it as a “NoBreak” plastic. The specialized air panels install into place faster than gravel giving you that synthetic grass to enjoy sooner and year round. AirDrain Drainage ASTM D 4716 Synthetic Grass and Natural Grass Testing   Once the air panels were installed and the synthetic grass was laid the only thing left to do was to take pleasure into looking at the new artificial grass in Nichols Hills, Oklahoma. The synthetic grass was able to eliminate backyard mowing in those hard to reach places around pavers, swimming pool, and landscaped islands. With synthetic grass you can enjoy your exquisite backyard year long, and reduce your time watering (which includes your water bill as well) and mowing to relax and take in the outdoors.   If you’re ready to let NexGen Lawns use their novel technological advancements to ensure your lawn, sports field, or swimming pool surround looks exquisite year round – please give NexGen Lawns a call today! One of our representatives will be happy to assist you in your next outdoor transformation. Our Tulsa office phone number is 918-671-8428 or Oklahoma City location at 405-683-1313. You can also email us anytime with our online form. Remember to ask for a free no-cost obligatory quote. A NexGen Lawns representative can assist you with which artificial grass or artificial turf will work best for your next new and fresh idea for your lawn or business. We look forward to hearing from you and assisting you with all your artificial grass or artificial turf needs.

AirDrain Synthetic Grass Drainage is a 100% Vertical Drainage Layer http://airfieldsystems.com/airdrain-synthetic-grass-drainage-layer/ Wed, 26 Oct 2016 16:52:22 +0000 http://airfieldsystems.com/?p=7787   Synthetic Grass Drainage with AirDrain is a 100% Vertical Drainage Layer and Shock Pad with NO EQUAL on Rooftops, Concrete or Asphalt   AirDrain brings consistent Gmax and shock attenuation properties, which is a major contributor to the reduction of concussions and the safety for your users. If your field floats, has ponding or infill migration (which is an extreme player safety and owner liability issue) and you can’t figure out why, maybe it’s because they said it would drain X amount per hour and in reality it doesn’t and never will. Those issues don’t get better they get worse! Countless hours in added maintenance and grooming, adding materials etc. etc. what’s the cost of that every month? AirDrain’s unique ability to provide immediate 100% vertical drainage with it’s 1″ high and 92% air void across the entire field helps keep the infill in place and all but eliminates infill migration and reduces field maintenance. Unlike traditional shock pads or e-layers the AirDrain has a vertical and lateral drainage rate that cannot be matched by any other product in the industry. ASTM D 4716 Hydraulic Transmissivity Standard Test Method To put this in perspective of rainfall, AirDrain can handle anything that Mother Nature throws at it. On a nearly completely flat surface (1/2% slope) AirDrain will drain 2.85 inches of rainfall in one minute. For example, it could rain over 171 inches in an hour and AirDrain could drain it on a 1/2% slope. AirDrain can also hold .576 gallons of water per sqft. if needed until it can evacuate to the perimeter exit drains. No other product on the market comes close to AirDrain’s ability to drain a project, it’s not even close.   ASTM F355-10a: Standard Test Methods for Shock-Absorbing Properties of Playing Surface Systems and Materials results: 14.7% reduction in GMAX over a cement/asphalt subbase. Installed atop a sealed court surface the AirDrain Synthetic Grass Drainage System raises the turf off the base allowing the area to be used immediately after a rain occurrence. The AirDrain System is only limited by the draining ability of the turf above and the exit drain needing only a .25% to .5% slope that is usually already present on rooftops, concrete or asphalt tennis courts etc. to allow the water to flow to the designated drain. With multiple variations of installation profiles available to accommodate fall height requirements and ASTM tested up to 9ft.   Contact AirField Systems with any questions, need for information or to find out how easy it is to spec or install AirDrain for your next project.   AirField Systems : 405-359-3775 Michael Bean : michaelb@airfieldsystems.com or Trey Parker : tparker@airfieldsystems.com
