Artificial Grass AirDrain Roof Top Install Binghamton, NY High School Follow Up from the 2008 Install still performing perfectly !!
No other system comes close in ease of install, price value player safety and performance!
Here is the ASTM D4716 Flow Rate per Unit Width and Hydraulic Transmissivity Testing for actual drainage capacity, at a 1/2% slope. AirDrain will actually drain 2 inches per minute
No other product comes close!
The AirDrain Drainage System provides a 100% vertical and horizontal drainage capability eliminates the need for traditional base drainage systems, such as herringbone trenching or flat pipe etc. only needing perimeter or exit drains.
A 100% vertical drainage across your entire field, using gravity to pull and drain the water.
AirDrain has a 14.7% reduction in GMAX on cement that is consistent across the entire field for the life of the product and multiple turf replacements.
Green Roof AirDrain Drainage – What drains better than air!
No other system comes close in ease of installation, price value and performance!!
With over 2+ million sqft. of green roofs installed across the nation let us show you how easy and cost effective it is to use AirDrain!
AirDrain geocell has patented expansion and contraction connectors built into the part and can add valuable LEED points to any green roofing project. With a unique and extremely easy to install assembly design and 100% post-manufactured recycled content.
Lightweight at only 3.1 pounds per 7 square feet, with a rating 33,552 psf. AirDrain is the ideal drainage medium for green roof top applications whether decorative or in constant use.
Move water rapidly vertically and horizontally or capture it for retention with AirDrain’s 92% air void and 400 drainage notches on each side of the part, it’s easy.
AirDrain is capable of holding .576 gallons of water per sqft. if needed until it can evacuate from the roof to the perimeter exit drains. Which is equal to approximately 6 inches of compacted gravel.
Over the years, many architects and engineers have asked us just how fast will the AirDrain grid drain. Our reply has always been that the AirDrain is only limited by what is above it and the exit drains. Due to the fact that the area of an AirDrain part is 1” inch high and has a 92% air void.
Recently, our AirDrain grid was tested using the ASTM D 4716 Hydraulic Transmissivity Standard Test Method. The testing was done using plates on top and bottom of the AirDrain part, setting them to the required slope and adding water from the high side of one end down the slope.
AirDrain was draining so fast they had to modify their testing equipment to accommodate the volume of water AirDrain could move!
As it turns out there is practically no resistance to the water draining using the AirDrain grid? The most important factor to consider is the percentage of slope that the AirDrain is sitting on.
For example, it could rain over 171 inches in an hour and AirDrain could drain it on a 1/2% slope.
No other product on the market comes close to AirDrain’s ability to drain a project, it’s not even close.
