AirPave Grass Paver System

Previously, drainage cells were difficult to assemble, costly to ship, and extremely expensive. Now, with AirPave’s patented quick connectors, assembly is a snap. What’s more, the AirPave geocell stacks for efficient shipping and storage. All of this at an incredible price makes AirPave the superior geocell for any porous paving project.

From fire lanes, overflow, and event parking, to temporary and stadium parking, the AirPave grass pave system delivers. The incredibly strong AirPave geocell prevents rutting from traffic and protects turf roots from damage.

AirPave also enhances the environment by naturally filtering auto and air pollutants while reducing hot surface temperatures. By routing rainwater directly into the earth as nature intended, the need for costly storm water structures can be drastically reduced or completely eliminated.

Create beauty and comfort with the unbeatable price and performance of an AirPave grass pave system.

AirDrain Drainage System for Natural and Synthetic Turf 

AirField Systems AirDrain grid creates a GMAX/HIC that is consistent across the entire synthetic playing surface. Unlike traditional shock pads or e-layers the AirField Systems AirDrain grid is 1″ high, extremely light weight at 3.1 lbs per 7 sqft., 233 psi (unfilled)  and has a 92% air void, giving it unmatched vertical and lateral drainage.

AirDrain Agronomic Drainage for Natural Grass also creates it’s own almost perfect perched water table, on the bottom of the sand profile to promote healthy and deep root growth.

The five year research project was jointly funded by the United States Golf Association and AirField Systems and was a collaborative effort between Texas A&M, AirField Systems and the United States Golf Association.

Benefits of an AirField System Design include:

  • An AirDrain Agronomic System sand profile creates an almost perfect perched water table
  • Up to 3 more days of plant available water stored in the root zone (depending on climate)
  • Significantly reduces daily irrigation needs (as told to us by our customers)
  • Healthier turf / Stronger root system (as told to us by our customers)
  • 100% Vertical Drainage under the entire playing surface

Synthetic Grass 

  • AirDrain creates and helps support a constant GMAX for Synthetic Grass Turf 
  • Consistent GMAX and Shock Attenuation reduces risk of  injury
  • Helps eliminate standing water and all but eliminates infill migration
  • Minimal site disturbance / Far less excavation and disposal
  • Several installation days saved over a gravel installation
