Eco Waterless Grass now providing Drainage Mats!

American Wick Drain has been a leader in prefabricated drainage systems for many years and has developed a full coverage drainage system that provides exceptional drainage on high-performance artificial turfs. When synthetic turfs are used, drainage is a very important aspect of the entire system. To help drain the turf, traditionally stone was used to provide an adequate drainage layer. Unfortunately, to get adequate drainage, 4 to 6 inches of stone had to be incorporated into the design. To do this, extra excavation and grading were required resulting in higher costs. Drainage Mats can be used under synthetic turf or natural turf and won’t leave an uneven surface! Here at Eco Waterless Grass, we only want to provide our customers with the best of the best and are proud to feature American Wick’s EXCELDRAIN Mat as part of our product line.
This newly featured drainage Mat offer significant advantages over stone base applications:
Superior flow – EXCELDRAIN’s half inch design can collect and transport 16 gallons per minute per foot of width which is superior to 4 inches of stone which can only handle 3-5 gallons of water per minute per foot of width. This also provides a superior rainfall evacuation rate which reduces the wait time before using the field after a rain event.
Enhanced G-Max Performance –Eco Waterless Grass loves that the EXCELDRAIN mat also provides a high compressive strength structure that allows the water to flow under the turf yet it enhances the G-Max performance without changing the ball action or causing injury to the players during play.
Easy to install - EXCELDRAIN Turf Drain comes in rolls of 4 foot widths and up to 120 foot long for easy handling and installation.

It can be installed two ways for natural turf fields.
Vertical Installation: Similar to a French drain system, the EXCELDRAIN EX-T Strip Drain is installed to maximize the surface area contact with the soils below to help collect water through areas that are draining improperly.
Horizontal Installation: For athletic fields, some designs design for our product to be used horizontally to minimize sub base disruption.

Consumer Product Safety is Important!

Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act
Excerpt Regarding Lead and Artificial Grass

The amount of lead that can be in artificial grass is governed by Section 101 – Children’s Products Containing Lead; Lead Pain Rule – of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act.

The limits specified by Section 101 are phased in over three (3) years. Products that contain more than 600 PPM (parts per million) of lead after February 10, 2009 are banned from sale in the United States and sales of such products will result in significant civil and criminal liability. That limit drops to 300 PPM in August of 2009 and 100 PPM in August of 2010.

However, additional (more restrictive rules) apply to paint and similar surface-coating materials for consumer use (which would be applicable to artificial grass). As of August 14th, 2009 the limit becomes 90 PPM.
All Eco Waterless Grass artificial grasses and artificial putting greens meet these requirements!
