ASTM F355 Gmax testing in Santa Cruz, California and throughout America
Surface Performance strive to ensure all artificial and natural football turf systems are safe for use and comply with ASTM standard F1936.
Our local accredited technicians use a specialist F355 A-Missile – a 20lb cylindrical weight which is dropped from 24inches in 10 locations across the pitch. The integrated accelerometer measures the magnitude of impact during impact and in turn, calculates the force a player is likely to absorb upon a collision with the surface. ASTM require no test location have a gmax rating of above 200g’s to be deemed fit for use.
