Turfix Field Safety Guarantee
At Turfix, nothing is more important to you and nothing is more important to us than the safety of your athletes.
Turfix is recognized as the Midwest’s leading artificial turf company not only because we create beautiful, lush artificial turf fields, but because we go the extra mile to ensure player safety. One of the ways we do this is with G-Max testing.
G-Max testing is of the utmost importance as it has led to dramatic improvements in playing surfaces in regards to safety and performance.
What is G-Max testing?
A G-Max test analyzes surface hardness and measures the shock-absorbing characteristics of your synthetic turf field. We’ll spare you the physics lesson, but gist is that a weight gets dropped from a certain height on the surface of the field and then tells you how much shock is absorbed.
Why is G-Max testing important?
When a player falls, the impact is absorbed either by the playing surface or the player. And when the surface is hard, there’s a greater likelihood of injury. Fields that are too hard pose a risk to player safety, while fields that are too soft contribute to excessive fatigue and poor player performance. In essence, the results of a G-Max test are important because they will tell you if your field is too hard (bad for safety) or too soft (bad for performance).
G-Max testing is an investment in your field’s and your athlete’s future! If you make the commitment to have your artificial turf field tested, you should also commit to having the tests done properly. Player safety is our top priority at Turfix and we perform G-Max testing using ASTM standards and values to protect your players and protect your investment.
Furthermore, we guarantee safe field playing conditions (defined by G-Max values under 200g’s) for the life of your artificial turf field’s warranty or we will fix it for no charge.
