Binghamton High School in Binghamton, NY needed a multi-purpose artificial turf field on top of a parking garage, and Airfield Systems AirDrain delivered the lightest, strongest, most efficient drainage solution available today. At 3 lbs. per 7 square foot and rated at over 33,500 pounds per square foot regardless of the location. Rooftop fields are gaining popularity, and Binghamton is utilizing 47,000 square feet of valuable playing surface on top of a parking garage without having to expand the grounds.
Bryan Humiston of Play Safe Turf and Track located in Ithaca, NY a 20 year veteran of sports field installations and installer of the project said " The product arrived and installed perfectly no issues, creating a field with playability and drainage second to none. We would be excited about installing the product on any project in the future."
Binghamton's artificial turf field is a sustainable site design with a small development footprint, keeping water weight off the structure and preventing rain outs or puddling. Airfield's AirDrain is a 100% recycled drainage cell that is also recyclable for the owner at the end of its useful life.
AirDrain can be reused under multiple turf replacements for the same field.
Past the design phase and into construction Airfield’s natural turf system is even better with a 3 year USGA – Texas A&M research project backing it up. Check back for a high profile rooftop natural grass field at 74,000 square feet to rival the best in the country with water reclamation and reuse in the design.
AirField Systems, LLC manufactures AirDrain, an advanced geocell drainage system for golf, sports fields, green roofs, grass fire lanes and porous paving.
