AirDrain For Synthetic Grass Drainage and Shockpad
A grid sheet is 7 square feet of coverage, therefore you must order a minimum of 7 square feet.
We recommend adding 3 – 5 % for shrinkage when selecting your quantity.
If you have any trouble ordering at all email me at email@example.com your sqft. needed and the complete address you are shipping to and I will personally get you a quote ASAP!
Enter the number of square feet below in 7 sqft. Increments only – NOT the number of grid sheets.

Whether installed on an aggregate sub-base, concrete, asphalt or rooftop the AirDrain for Synthetic Grass drainage helps provide you with consistent drainage. AirDrain is 1 inch high, has a 92 % air void and a vertical and lateral drainage rate which cannot be matched by any other product in the industry.
It has been used in specs and projects where the city or county has limited the water that can be introduced into the sewer system or has limited the size or volume of the exit drains on a roof top.
In a Cost Value Performance scenario, no product comes close to AirDrain.
Over the years, many architects and engineers have asked us just how fast the grid will drain. Our reply has always been that the grid is only limited by what is above it and the exit drains due to the fact that the area of the grid part is 1 inch high and has a 92 percent air void.
Recently, our 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 part, setting them to the required slope and adding water from 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 drainage using this tile. The most important factor to consider is the percentage of slope that the AirDrain is sitting on.
To put this in perspective of rainfall, AirDrain can handle anything that Mother Nature throws at it. On a nearly completely flat surface (1/2% of 1% slope) AirDrain will drain 2.85 inches of rainfall in one minute.
For example, it could rain over 171 inches in an hour and AirDrain could handle it.
AirDrain ‘s capability to hold water .576 gallons of water per sqft. in the grid until the exit drains can evacuate it is another plus for the System.
No other product on the market matches the AirDrain ability to drain a project, it’s not even close. Period !
This tile can also provide consistent shock attenuation properties which are a major contributor to the reduction of concussions for the safety of your players.
So when you see the claims of manufacturers rainfall per hour drainage, ask them if they have the ASTM test that really shows a products drainage capability.
*When installing over a rubber roofing membrane, lay down a thick geo-textile layer first. You must protect the water proofing at all costs!
*AirDrain can be made to the following specification Flammability UL 94, Flame Retardant, High Impact Polypropylene.
