GMAX Testing and Field Safety

Is your artificial turf field safe? This is a question that should be asked on a regular basis to ensure that optimal field performance and safety standards are met. But how do you know? GMAX testing is one solution.

A GMAX test measures the impact attenuation of your artificial turf field. These tests measure the amount of force exerted from the field back to an athlete. The less force absorbed by the field, the higher the GMAX. Surfaces with a higher GMAX generally lead to an increase in injuries.

GMAX testing is essential for the improvement of the performance and safety of your student-athletes. Monitoring your artificial turf field throughout its life is critical to ensuring that it is operating the way it should. If you are interested in completing GMAX testing or have questions about your artificial turf field the Health and Safety at Resource Training & Solutions can help.
