“As water conservation and being eco-conscious become even more important while people strive to keep their homes and business properties beautiful and enjoyable, NewGrass is excited about this new alliance,” said Greg Goehner, president of NewGrass artificial lawns.
“Finding a truly compatible and green solution for installing our products on concrete and any other hard surface opens new possibilities for homeowners and commercial property owners with non-traditional or challenging landscaping requirements,” Goehner said.
AirDrain is an innovative, ecologically sound solution for porous paving, drainage and erosion control on surfaces such as concrete. It’s a super-strong, highly versatile, lightweight and easily installed drainage system made from an environmentally friendly combination of polypropylene and polyethylene.
AirDrain’s interlocking, 1-inch-tall “honeycomb” design makes it the only geocell that incorporates a patented latching mechanism.
“This feature of AirDrain give it great latitude for expansion and contraction in all kinds of climates, which makes it a great compliment to NewGrass,” Goehner said.
And, its light weight helps keeps cost down. Nearly 100,000 square feet of AirDrain can be shipped in one trailer, according to the manufacturer.
AirDrain contains significant portions of post consumer recycled content, is recycleable. And is manufactured in the United States.
An environmentally conscious product, AirDrain also adds to a project’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) point certification. It can qualify in as many as 15 different credit categories under Site Sustainability, Water Efficiency, and Materials and Resources.
AirDrain has found wide acceptance as the perfect drainage solution over hard surfaces for grass and gravel paving, artificial and natural turf sports fields, golf greens, bunkers, tee boxes and cart paths, and even green roofing.
