Artificial Grass Sports Field Turf Replacement after 9 years with AirDrain and ShockPad
Alta HS in Utah, is one of 7 AirDrain fields with the artificial grass to be replaced in 2018. Proving that when installed correctly, 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 was ready for another 9+ years of use. Bringing an almost 20% reduction in GMAX, that will be consistent across the entire field for the life of the field. And a 233 psi no other product in the market comes close !
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!
Keep in mind our test was completed with 2 metal plates attached above and below the grid that is the lateral drainage.
If the product doesn’t have that test, ask for it. It is the only one that counts!
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, protect your players.
The AirDrain Agronomic 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 AirDrain to 1 truck on a 91k sqft. project.
Don’t forget shipping costs AirDrain can’t be beat! That goes to the bottom line !
Installing the AirField System results in a more stable surface area and a more consistent GMAX across the project. AirDrain’s delivers a 14.7% on cement and a 19.8% reduction on an aggregate base in GMAX. And that reduction and consistency will stay for the life of the field with AirDrain .
All but eliminates infill migration and a floating field, and helps brings a consistent GMAX across the entire field. (which can drastically affect the safety of the project and the players putting owners in an extreme liability risk scenario)
