AirDrainWhat drains better than Air?

Synthetic Grass Turf Drainage

The consistent Gmax and Shock Attenuation properties of the AirDrain are major contributors to the safety of your players and the reduction of concussions.

Unlike traditional shock pads or e-layers AirDrain is 1” high has a 92% air void and a 100% vertical drainage rate. AirDrain’s performance cannot be matched by any other product in the industry.

AirDrain reduces Gmax by approximately per ASTM Testing  

  • 18.9% on a gravel subbase and 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 reducing GMAX
  • Only needs a .25% slope for effective drainage
  • Patented expansion and contraction built into every part
  • AirDrain is only limited by the drainage capacity of the profile above it and the exit drains capacity
  • AirDrain can be reused multiple times when the synthetic turf must be replaced

Green Roofing – Synthetic or Natural Turf

With limited space on campus, high schools and colleges are turning to roof top sports surfaces to create multi- use green areas.

Building a rooftop sports field with an AirField System provides drainage under 100% of the playing surface, prevents ponding, and moves water efficiently for reuse elsewhere on campus.

Over 2,000,000 square feet of AirDrain Drainage roof top drainage installed and counting.

Natural Turf- Chesapeake Energy 74,000 sqft.
Synthetic Turf- LACC “LA Community College” 95,000 sqft., MSOE “Milwaukee School of Engineering” 100,000sqft., UCSD “University of California in San Diego” 80,000 sqft., WPI “Worcester Polytechnics Institute” 174,000 sqft.

AirDrain creates and helps maintain a consistent Gmax for Synthetic Grass 

  • ASTM testing proves AirDrain’s shock absorption properties reduce GMAX
  • AirDrain can be reused when the Synthetic Turf must be replaced
  • Can help qualify for LEED™ and other green building credits
  • A smaller carbon and development footprint with reduced site disturbance
  • Water harvesting reclamation and reuse is easy
  • AirDrain creates a one inch air barrier on the rooftop increasing R-values.
  • AirDrain is a 100% recycled copolymer with the impact modifier “metallocene”.
  • Resins can be made to the following specification “Flammability UL 94, Flame Retardant, High Impact Polypropylene Copolymer Resins”

Playground Drainage – 6ft. and 8ft. Fall Height w/o Rubber Infill

AirDrain with its 100% vertical drainage and 92% air void is designed to collect and re-direct water. AirDrain actually raises the entire profile 1” off the subbase and brings gravity into play allowing the area to dry quickly and efficiently.

No more monthly infill maintenance, after a heavy rain and no more expense of replacing lost rubber to your site providing a more consistent surface area. Resulting in a site that should drain and have a consistent HIC across the entire playground.

For playgrounds the AirDrain System is 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.
