Standard Test Method for Impact Attenuation of Playing Surface Systems and Materials

2010-12-31 /Historical
Significance and Use:

The results of this method quantify the impact attenuation of playing surface and system specimens under the specific test conditions.

The test method measures the outcome of impacts performed under specific conditions. It does not quantify the intrinsic material properties of the tested specimens.

Test results from different specimens obtained under the same conditions (that is, the same missile mass and geometry, drop height, etc.) may be used to compare impact attenuation under those conditions.

Test results obtained under different conditions are not comparable. Specifically obtained with different missiles are not equivalent and cannot be directly compared. Similarly, test results obtained using the same missile, but using different drop heights, are not directly comparable.


1.1 This test method covers the measurement of certain shock-absorbing characteristics, the impact force-time relationships, and the rebound properties of playing surface systems. This test method is applicable to natural and artificial playing surface systems and to components thereof. Typical playing surfaces are wrestling mats, football fields, soccer fields, playgrounds, and so forth.

Note 1—This test method may also be used to measure the shock-attenuation properties of materials used as protective padding, such as the padding on trampoline frames, football goal posts, gymnasium wall, shoulder pads, body padding, and so forth. It should not be used, without some modifications, to test the finished products.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
