The Benefits of AirDrain
March 20, 2019
Through years of technological advancements in the synthetic turf industry, drainage systems have come a long way in their performance and design. AirDrain is a new design that showcases these advancements and something that everyone should have for their turf. It is an economical, easy to install, Geocell drainage grid that creates a 1-inch, 92% air void underneath your artificial grass installation.
What is AirDrain
AirDrain is made from 100% recycled copolymer which has the impact modifier “metallocene” added to it, making it qualify as a “No Break” plastic. This impact modifier allows AirDrain to withstand extreme heat and cold temperatures while still maintaining its performance. Since AirDrain also allows a continuous movement of air to flow through the turf, the surface temperature will always be cool. Like any artificial turf installation, proper drainage is a crucial factor in executing an efficient and functioning synthetic grass installation. AirDrain’s optimal drainage capabilities include holding .576 gallons of water per square foot while elevating the artificial turf above the subgrade to allow air to circulate and water to pass through efficiently. It’s vertical and lateral drainage eliminates standing water and unwanted moisture that could be trapped underneath the artificial turf. Not only does it work great for residential installations but it’s ideal for pet areas/kennels, playgrounds, and rooftops.
AirDrain for Pet Areas
With pet installations, AirDrain separates the synthetic grass from the concrete and directs the waste to a predetermined drainage exit to reduce odor levels and prevent a buildup of any bacteria. AirDrain helps provide pet facilities, dog parks, and vet clinics with a surface area that is economical, easy to install, and reliable!
AirDrain for Playgrounds
Playground installations require permeable surfaces to allow for proper and safe drainage. AirDrain offers 100% vertical drainage and has a 92% void which allows water to be collected and drain effectively. Additionally, AirDrain raises the entire profile a full inch, allowing gravity to remove the water from the whole playground quickly and efficiently. This combined effect provides a more stable surface area, reduced expenses for repairs, and more play time for kids!
AirDrain for Rooftops
The AirDrain Geocell is extremely lightweight at only 3.1 pounds per 7 square feet, making it the ideal drainage medium for green rooftop applications. AirDrain Geocell has patented expansion and contraction connectors built-in and can add valuable LEED points to any green roofing project!
