Gmax and HIC testing in Marion, Alabama
Surface Performance view player safety as the priority when it comes to synthetic turf fields. Gmax and HIC testing is carried out in Marion, Alabama to regulate these surface, ensuring they are within the parameters stated in ASTM F355.
Gmax and HIC testing both measure the impact absorbed by a player upon impact with the playing surface. Gmax replicates a players torso whilst HIC (Head Impact Criterion) is the recognised test to simulate head impact. Higher test values show a harder surface which absorbs less impact therefore returning more force to the user, increase the liklihood of injury or concussion. A pitch with Gmax values higher then 200g’s is deemed unsafe for use.
