Vertical deformation is one of the common properties used to specify the performance of indoor sport surfaces. Currently there are several standards that reference this property to define the comfort and performance features of indoor sports surfaces. ASET developed this document to help owners and architects compare the requirements of one standard to another. The information within this post may become dated in the future, however as of October, 2018 the data is still accurate.
Some standards apply requirements only to the average value, some include requirements for uniformity, and others require minimum performance levels to be achieved at all test points. This document provides readers a quick summary to determine how the requirements of key standards are applied to the results.
As always, contact ASET Servcices if you have any questions about this document or wish to discuss testing of your product or installation.
