Hello Trey,

I hope these pictures are fine for what you need.

The system works perfectly. It can pour lots of tropical rain and it just disappears immediately.

We are very pleased with the system.


Thank you.

For Synthetic Turf

The consistent Gmax and Shock Attenuation properties of the AirDrain system are major
contributors to the safety of players and the reduction of concussions. Unlike traditional shock
pads or e-layers, AirDrain is 1” high, has 92% air void and 100% vertical drainage. AirDrain
cannot be matched by any other product in the industry.

AirDrain can reduce Gmax by approximately:
 18.9% on a gravel subbase
 14.7% on a concrete subbase

Some of the Benefits of an AirField Synthetic Turf Drainage System include:

• AirDrain creates and helps maintain a constant Gmax for Synthetic Turf
• ASTM testing proves AirDrain’s shock absorption properties reduces Gmax
• AirDrain creates a 1″ air void allowing for 100% vertical drainage over the whole installation
• Patented expansion and contraction built into every part which keeps the grid from buckling
• AirDrain is only limited by the drainage capacities of the profile above and the exit drains below
• AirDrain can be reused when the synthetic turf must be replaced
