Safety and performance testing to 3g pitches in Central City, Colorado
With the number of artificial pitches rapidly increasing it is important to ensure they are replicating the characteristics of a natural field as closely as possible and therefore not posing unnecessary risk to users. Surface Performance are an independent laboratory offering a range of safety and performance testing in Central City, Colorado.
Gmax & HIC have become the most recognized tests in respect to shock absorption upon impacts with the surface. By measuring the magnitude of force a surface can absorb we can measure the force players are exposed to. This determines the level of risk of sustaining an injury/concussion. If a surface is too hard (+200g’s gmax rating) it may be deemed unsafe as it returns excessive force to the players.
