Gmax field safety testing in Southington, Connecticut
The condition and safety of artificial playing surfaces only degrades over time. The impact attenuation, measured by Gmax, is one of the factors that can degrade. This directly affects the safety to the athletes using the surface.
Surface Performance carry out Gmax testing throughout the USA, to ASTM standards. These standards stipulate that no test point on the surface should have a Gmax result higher than 200g’s, otherwise the surface is deemed unsafe, and not fit for use. This is because too much impact is sustained by the athlete using the surface, and likelihood of injury is therefore higher.
