Technical Information


  • The GfactorGO material (aluminum 6061-T6), mass (4.6kg ±(10.1lbs ±)) and circumference (160mm ±2mm (6.3” ±0.1”)) meet the requirements of ASTM F355, ASTM F1292, En1177 and AS4422

  • The GfactorGO calculates and records the height of the drop for each drop.

  • The GfactorGO can store the drop data for documentation with 100 drops in up to 10 folders on an SD card that can be uploaded to your PC.

  • An MEP (modular elastomeric pad) is provided to ensure the Gfactor is operational.

The GfactorGO can be used on playground impact attenuating surfaces, either loose fill or synthetic, wall padding, rugby fields, and many other surfaces. Each surface type might require some user guidance or training.

The GfactorGO is suspended in a raised hand and therefore might not be able to impact the same spot on the surface from the same height multiple times. A TRIAX2015 or TRAIXTOUCH will be required for more rigorous testing.

The GfactorGO is wireless and easily operated by a single person allowing the user the freedom of moving around a facility without being hampered by wires or carrying other cumbersome equipment.

Since the GfactorGO is a single drop, the user will have to determine the threshold value they are prepared to accept to proceed with play without the more rigorous test.
