Force Reduction testing in the Lab

Traditionally, architects and owners have assumed that hardwood courts maintain the safety, comfort and uniformity that was present at the installation for the life of the court. This is a summary from a study requested by the owner to determine if the high level of use had caused the performance of the floor to deteriorate over time. Once again, the lack of commission data from when the floor was installed prevented ASET from being able to definitively determine the extent to which the performance and uniformity of the courts had deteriorated over time.

The lack of commission testing within North America not only prevents owners from knowing how their floor has changed overtime, but it also prevents them from knowing that the floor ever delivered the safety and performance levels that were specified.

Contact ASET to have your new or existing sport surface (hardwood, synthetic, track, turf), dance or playground surfaces evaluated for key safety and performance properties.
