Frequently Asked Questions

The average age of a field is about eight years but it really depends on many factors such as use, maintenance, climate, and most importantly who built the field originally.

First, call an AstroTurf representative and get it inspected. We will walk the field with you and give you a visual inspection. As we evaluate your field we will look for loose fibers, infill levels, planarity, and condition of the edge detail. Our experienced salespeople and dealers will give you an expert evaluation to determine when you should replace your turf. The ultimate tool for determining the age of your field is a test for shock attenuation. In other words, how well does the field still protect your athletes? In this day of concern with the long-term effects of head and neck impacts and concussions, this is the key piece of information.

The best way is to get a shock attenuation test is to call an independent field tester. They have the proper equipment to test under the ASTM 355 protocols and will give you the GMAX rating for the field. GMAX has been the industry standard for shock attenuation for over 40 years. A well-maintained natural grass field is 90-100G’s. New turf fields are usually 100-125G’s, and the Synthetic Turf Council (STC) has a top line threshold of 165G’s. Anything above that level, needs to remediated or replaced. Don’t guess… get the test!

$750 – $1000 for an independent test. It takes about 90 minutes and now you are armed with the most important piece of information determining the life expectancy of your field.
