Playground Drainage with AirDrain – What drains better than Air?
We have an ASTM F 1292-10 fully tested six foot and nine foot no infill solution!!
Woodlands Preparatory School Artificial Grass Playground Drainage pictured above.
Here is the ASTM D4716 Flow Rate per Unit Width and Hydraulic Transmissivity Testing for actual drainage capacity, at a 1/2% slope. The AirDrain will actually drain 171 inches per hour.

AirDrain Drainage with its 100% vertical drainage and 92% air void is unmatched by any other drainage product on the market. By raising the entire profile off the subbase, creating a 1” air void and bringing gravity into play this allows the area to dry quickly and efficiently.
The result is a more stable surface area and consistent HIC across the project, All but eliminating infill migration a huge maintenance and inconsistent HIC across the playground (which can drastically effect the safety of the project putting owners in an extreme liability risk scenario).
AirDrain’s strength and durability allow it to be used under multiple turf replacements on the project. In a cost value and performance proposition there is only one choice, AirDrain!
No other product stacks and ships more compactly, reducing the number of trucks and the amount of fuel required to transport to the green roof job site typically to 2 trucks on a 95k sqft. project. Don’t forget shipping costs AirDrain cant 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 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 .
AirDrain Drainage 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 putting owners in an extreme liability risk scenario)
For playground drainage the AirDrain System can be placed on the prepared subbase. Whether using loose fill products, such as engineered wood fiber or rubber chips, or using unitary surfaces, such as rubber tiles or poured in place rubber, the playground area needs proper water drainage.
Wood chips can be placed directly on top of the geotextile. The filter fabric retains the wood chip particles while allowing water to freely enter the drainage core.
The AirDrain Advantage
AirDrain playground drainage system benefits include:
- AirDrain removes all the typical install issues with pads, seems and wrinkling etc.
- AirDrain raises the entire profile 1” off the subbase and bringing gravity into play
- AirDrain’s 92% air-void space for fast and easy water removal
- Helps bring a Consistent HIC and Gmax for the life of the AirDrain providing a safe play area
- 100% post industrial recycled content
- AirDrain’s quick snap connectors allows for effortless installation
- Minimal site disturbance, far less excavation and disposal
- Compact shipping reducing transportation costs

A design with AirDrain should always insure the integrity of what is below the grid, for the life of the project. AirDrain is a sub surface drainage layer. And is not a sub base in anyway, it will only reflect what it sits on top of.
