Artificial Grass Sports Field Turf Replacement at Lehi H.S. in Utah after 9+ years with the AirDrain Drainage and Shock Pad
Lehi H.S. in Utah, is one of 6 AirDrain fields with artificial grass to be replaced in the last year. Proving that when installed correctly on a properly prepared subbase, there is no product in the industry that can match in ease of use cost value and performance.
The field was removed and replaced and the AirDrain should be ready for another 9+ years of use. Bringing an almost 20% reduction is GMAX that is consistent across the entire field.
AirDrain also has a 233 psi versus about 35 psi with typical pads
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 171 inches per hour per sqft. No other product comes close! Wait no other product has that test?
Keep in mind our test was completed with 2 metal plates attached above and below the grid that is the horizontal drainage. This is a practical drainage test if the product doesn’t have that test, ask for it.
It is the only one that counts! Holding a pad up in the air pouring water on it for a drainage test is ridiculous, test it in a real world environment.
When you have an AirDrain sports field infill migration is almost completely eliminated, no other product can say that! Having your field float or the infill bunch up is a huge player hazard and liability leaving dramatic GMAX variances across the field, protect your players.
The AirDrain Sports Field Drainage Systems 100% vertical and horizontal drainage capabilities eliminates the need for traditional base drainage systems. Such as herringbone trenching or flat pipe etc. only needing perimeter or exit drains.
No other product stacks and ships more compactly, reducing the number of trucks and the amount of fuel required to transport the AirDrain to the job site to 1 truck on a 95k sqft. project.
Don’t forget shipping costs, they go to the bottom line! AirDrain can’t be beat !
Installing the AirField System results in a more stable surface area and a more consistent GMAX across the project. AirDrain’s delivers a tested 14.7% on cement and a 19% reduction on an aggregate base in GMAX.
And that reduction and consistency will stay for the life of the field with AirDrain.
