HIC (head Injury Criterion) & gmax/impact testing in Peabody, Massachusetts
If you manage an artificial surface in Peabody, Massachusetts then you may require a gmax and HIC test to ensure the playing surface isn’t exposing players to excessive risks of sustaining impact related injuries, including concussions.
Gmax testing uses a 20lb, cylindrical weight, dropped from 24inches to measure how many G’s of force a surface can absorb upon impact and how many are therefore returned to the athlete. Surface Performance accredited engineers carry out Gmax testing to ASTM F355 & F1936 which state that any field with a Gmax rating over over 200G’s is deemed unsafe for use.
