Expert surface testing with gmax in North Chicago, Illinois
Surface Performance are an accredited independent laboratory carrying out gmax, HIC & Clegg testing in North Chicago, Illinois. Our passion is to ensure all artificial and natural sports surfaces are in line with ASTM standard F1936.
If a sports surface is too hard, according to the ASTM standards (+200g’s), it would be deemed unsafe for use as it exerts excessive impact on the players. This excessive force increases the risk of injury or concussion to the user. Therefore, at Surface Performance we provide state of the art testing with a ASTM F355 A-Missile to measure the gmax rating of a field. Gmax testing is designed to replicate the weight and impact of a players torso or head. Gmax testing is recognised throughout the USA as a fundamental safety test to ensure the playing surface is fit for use.
