Playground Drainage on a Concrete or Asphalt Base Converting a Tennis Court into a Playground

Not all playground drainage is equal! AirDrain with its 100% vertical drainage and 92% air is designed to collect and redirect water, actually raising the entire profile 1” higher and bringing gravity into play allowing the area to dry quickly and efficiently. The result is a more stable surface area, reduced expense for repair materials and more play time.

A playground drainage system should provide a way for water to efficiently drain away from the surface and be directed to the exit drains allowing a shorter turn around time for the continuation of Play.

Installed by Robert A. Bothman, Inc.  one of the best General Contractors in the business for over 30 years. Project Manager, Andrew Bothman said he would be happy to work with AirField Systems anytime in the future. AirDrain gives this field 100% vertical drainage with a 1 inch 92% Air Void that creates a larger perched water table providing up to 1 to 3 days more plant available water. Thru a research project conducted at Texas A&M, it was concluded that you can reduce your irrigation frequency using AirField Systems AirDrain. The five year research project was jointly funded by the United States Golf Association and AirField Systems and was a collaborative effort between Texas A&M, AirField Systems and the United States Golf Association. The data from the research showed that the AirField Systems drainage profile provided between one to three more days of plant available water than a United States Golf Association recommended gravel and sand profile. Click here for more information about the study titled “A Comparison of Water Drainage and Storage in Putting Greens Built Using Airfield Systems and USGA Methods of Construction”. Derby Field is a natural turf athletic field for the Berkeley Unified School District, servicing Berkeley High School Athletics and the Berkeley Technology Academy.

Green Roofing with Synthetic Turf Drainage Solution http://www.airfieldsystems.com/green-roofing-with-synthetic-turf-drainage-solution/ http://www.airfieldsystems.com/green-roofing-with-synthetic-turf-drainage-solution/#comments Fri, 17 Apr 2015 17:37:25 +0000 http://www.airfieldsystems.com/?p=5615 AirDrain – What drains better than Air? Green Roofing – Synthetic Turf Rooftop Drainage Solution AirDrain is incredibly strong at 233psi empty, which equals 33,552 pounds per square foot and creates a 92% air void and drains approximately 50 gallons per square foot, per minute. While being able to drain rainfall very quickly the AirDrain System can also hold or retain approximately .576 gallons of water per square foot; by controlling the exit pipes. This can allow for compliance with local city, county and/or state water retention regulations before the storm water exits into municipal storm water drainage systems. Benefits of AirField in a green roofing system include: AirDrain is easy to trim, making runner and perimeter boards fit perfectly into the AirDrain rooftop drainage system. 1” high composite runner boards fit perfectly flush with AirDrain panels. This makes strategically positioning the runner boards on the roof in perpendicular or various configurations easy to achieve. AirDrain’s 1″ inch air void installed on a rooftop with A/C and Heat below brings an excellent insulation factor to the rooftop mimicking a thermal pained window. The sun does not directly hit the rooftop which may significantly add life expectancy to the roof itself. Our customers have told to us that the snow melts off their rooftops faster than the surrounding landscape because of the inch of air below. Water harvesting reclamation and reuse is easy Pallets at 32″ x 32” will fit into a standard sized elevator for easy transport to the roof. AirDrain can be reused when the Synthetic Turf must be replace *This drawing, specifications and the information contained herein is for general presentation purposes only.

  • EXECUTION
    • EXAMINATION
      1. Before beginning installation, verify site conditions are as indicated on the Drawings. Notify the Architect if site conditions are not acceptable. Do not begin preparation or installation until unacceptable conditions have been corrected.
        1. Complete all hard surface paving adjacent to flexible paving areas, including concrete walks and asphalt paving prior to installation of flexible paving.
      2. Obtain approval of local fire authorities of sub-base prior to installation of base course for flexible porous paving.
      3. Ensure that sub-base Specified in Section 32 10 00 – Bases, Ballasts, and Paving is adequate to receive designed base course, wearing course, and the required design loads. Ensure that grading and soil porosity of the sub-base will provide adequate subsurface drainage.
    • PREPARATION
      1. Subgrade Preparation:

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Coordinate the following paragraphs below with AitPave’s recommendations and with subgrade requirements specified in Section 31 20 00 – Earth Moving Earthwork and, if required, Subdrainage specified in Section 33 46 19.13 – Underslab Drainage Piping. Proper subgrade preparation and drainage is required to achieve required performance. Contact Airfield Systems, Inc for additional recommendations.

  1. Prepare subgrade as specified in Section 32 10 00 – Bases, Ballasts, and Paving. Verify subgrade in accordance with porous paving system manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Excavate area allowing for unit thickness and the engineered base depth (where required).
  3. Provide adequate drainage from excavated area if area has potential to collect water, when working with in-place soils that have poor permeability.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete the following paragraph if not required.

  1. Provide a subdrainage system as specified in Section 33 46 19.13 – Underslab Drainage Piping.
  2. Ensure in-place soil is relatively dry and free from standing water.
  3. Uniformly grade base.
  4. Level and clear base of large objects, such as rocks and pieces of wood.
  1. Base Course: Place base course material over prepared sub-base to grades indicated on the Drawings. Place in lifts not to exceed 6 inches (150 mm), compacting each lift separately to 95 percent Modified Proctor. Leave 1 inch (25 mm) of depth below final grade for porous paver unit and gravel fill.
  2. Base Preparation:
    1. Leave minimum 25 mm (1 inch) to 35 mm (1.5 inches) for porous flexible paving units and sand/sod fill to final grade.
    2. Spread all Sustane fertilizer mix at the rate of 25 kg per 100 m2 (25 lbs per 1,000 SF) evenly over the surface of the base course with a hand-held, or wheeled, rotary spreader. Place fertilizer mix should be immediately before installing the porous flexible paving units.

 

 

 

 

 

  • INSTALLATION
    1. Paving Units: Install Porous Flexible Paving Units in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.

 

  1. Install by placing units with connectors and the pinning platforms flush against the prepared subbase with the larger diameter clover openings (cup side down) and pinning platforms facing downwards (grid side down). Place the first unit panel to the field’s upper left hand corner. Orient the paving unit materials with the integral indicator tab (painted yellow) to the panel’s bottom left hand corner. Proper sequencing and orientation of panels will result in a more rapid installation.
  2. Install unit panels across the field in a rowed pattern. Staggering of rows will allow for multiple row completion by a multi-manned crew. Secure the first panel to the base with pins and commence with panels 1-2, 1-3 and so on with one directional pull to secure. After each one directional pull secures the panel connectors together, slightly push back each panel to allow for contraction space at each connector. Verify each integral connector is snapped in place with sufficient contraction room allowed as panel installation proceeds.
  3. Once the first row has progressed across the project, start with the second row. By maintaining proper panel orientation, the top edge panel connectors will drop into the previously installed panel receptors after the one directional pull secures the panel.
  4. Panels can be shaped to individual field areas as needed with an appropriate cutting device. If you have many parts to trim use a circular saw with a no melt, plastic cutting saw blades.
  5. Anchor units to base course on curves, slopes, high traffic areas and any other areas as required.
  6. Anchor units using paver unit anchors. Tops of clovers shall be between 6 mm to 13 mm (0.25 inch to 0.5 inch) below the surface of adjacent hard-surface pavements.
  1. Sand: Place sand in clovers by back-dumping directly from a dump truck, or from buckets mounted on tractors, which then exit the site by driving over clovers already filled with sand. Spread sand laterally from the pile using flat bottomed shovels and/or wide asphalt rakes filling the clovers. Use a stiff bristled broom for final finishing of the sand uniformly over the clovers. Compact sand by using water from hose, irrigation heads, or rainfall, with the finish grade no less than the top of clovers and no more than 6 mm (0.25 inch) above top of clovers.
  2. Grass: Coordinate with Section 32 92 26.13 – Stolonizing and in accordance with porous paving manufacturer’s instructions.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Select one of the following paragraphs and delete the ones not required. Coordinate the requirements specified here with the requirement included in Section 32 92 26.13 – Stolonizing to avoid conflicts.

  1. Hydroseeding/hydro-mulching: Mix a combination of water, seed and fertilizer homogeneously in a purpose-built, truck-mounted tank. Spray the seed mixture uniformly onto the site at required rates. Following germination of the seed, areas lacking germination larger than 20 cm by 20 cm (8 inches by 8 inches) shall be reseeded immediately. Seeded areas shall be fertilized and kept moist during development of the turf plants.
  2. Thin Cut Sod: Install directly over sand filled clovers, filled no higher than the top of the clovers. Place sod strips with very tight joints, moistened and rolled to create good contact for growth. Fertilize and keep moist during root establishment (minimum of 3 weeks). Protect from any traffic for a period of 3 to 4 weeks or until the root system has penetrated and established well below the porous paving units.
  3. Seeding: Place grass seed at recommended rates per grass type. Place a light dusting of commercial topsoil mix, not to exceed 1/4 inch (25 mm) above the clovers and seed mix to aid germination rates. Fertilize and keep moist seeded areas during development of the turf plants.
  • MAINTENANCE
    1. Remove and replace segments of porous paving units where three or more adjacent clovers are broken or damaged, reinstalling as specified, so no evidence of replacement is apparent.
    2. Maintain grass in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions and as specified in Section 32 92 26.13 – Stolonizing Lawns and Grasses.
  • PROTECTION
    1. Protect turf area from any traffic for a period of 4 to 8 weeks, or until the grass is mature enough to handle traffic.
    2. Perform cleaning during the installation of work and upon completion of the work. Remove all excess materials, debris, and equipment from site. Repair any damage to adjacent materials and surfaces resulting from installation of this work.
    3. Repair or replace damaged products before Substantial Completion.
