MAINTENANCE PROGRAMS GSS’S STANDARDS OF CARE
The visual inspection covers seams, hash marks, numbers,arrows, logos, planarity, rips, tears and high traffic areas. All areas of concern are documented in a report submitted to the owner.
- Depth Check
Infill Depth/Pile Height: GSS uses an ASTM approved infill depth gauge. At each of the 20 test locations, infill depth is measured three times and the average is recorded. Pile height is also measured and recorded. Consistent, regular monitoring of infill depth and pile height will reveal wear patterns and trends in fiber loss, especially as the field approaches end of life, and will be key indicators for field replacement
- Spot Repair
The Turf Technician will also perform spot repairs of small sections where seams or inlays are lifting. He may repair by either hand sewing or regluing using industry accepted adhesive. Longer seams which requiring significant time and materials are subject to approval and additional fees. Infill additions, base work and edge reattachment are not included in the package price. Please see the report for recorded data. Recommendations will be provided if requested.
- HIC Test
HIC stands for Head Injury Criterion and is used to gauge the probability of head injury potential resulting from a surface impact. The Triax 2010 records the data at the same time as the GMAX and is provided in the report. The higher the HIC, the more severe and dangerous the impact is to the player. In order to better understand the field's performance, we use 20 test locations instead of 10. This is an additional premium service GSS provides that is included in all packages
