Your TRIAX or GfactorGo will have shipped with a reference pad that has been paired to your device and ensures that it is working at intended between calibrations. This Modular Elastomeric Pad (MEP) is specifically manufactured to pair with the TRIAX systems and over 25 years has proven to be stable both or time and across a wide range of temperatures 20oC ±10oC (68oF ±18oF).
Although we hope the use of the TRIAX and GfactorGo systems will assists owner/operators of playing surfaces to ensure they are meeting the needs for play and maintain or make modifications based on accurate data, in the real-world accidents will happen generally resulting in an injury that the injured party believes they have been wronged. Now the TRIAX data and legal verification become important. By following the requirements of the device manual and standard your data stand up in court. Therefore, you can validate the data under cross examination.
When the TRIAX or GfactorGo are manufactured, it is to the highest international standards and best practices for impact testing missiles.
Each TRIAX or GfactorGo is rigorously tested and leaves with a Certificate of Compliance and a Calibration Certificate, but the device is now in your hands and you have the minimum obligations to store it in a safe place and return it for calibration at a minimum of every two years.
In the meantime, you also have the obligation to ensure the data is accurate by first performing the reference drops and from time to time review the test data graph to ensure there are not anomalies, particularly if the angle is greater than 20 degrees.
