Artificial surface safety testing in Manchester, Connecticut
With the number of artificial surfaces across America growing exponentially in the past years gmax testing has become an essential test to ensure they are fit for use and replicate the characteristics of an artificial surface as closely as possible.
Gmax testing measure the impact attenuation of the surface, reflecting the impact exerted upon players upon collisions. If the magnitude of this returned force is too great, the risk of sustaining impact related injuries may also be too great.
ASTM require surfaces to have a gmax rating of no higher than 200g’s according to their standard F1936.
