Gmax, HIC & Clegg testing in Opelika, Alabama
Gmax testing is carried out in Opelika by Surface Performance to ensure all pitches are safe for use and in line with ASTM F355 & F1936.
When a player falls and impacts the surface, this impact is absorbed by both the player or the surface. Gmax testing ensures the surface is of high enough quality to absorb sufficient impact, thus minimising the impact on the athlete, reducing the likelihood of injury or concussion.
Gmax is measured in G-force, a pitch with a measurement of over 200g’s is deemed unsafe for use due to being too hard, absorbing insufficient impact.
