US is back to shock pads. It is not just
European trend but a practical solution for sensitive applications. Shock pads
are the ultimate way to add safety and resilience to the artificial grass
surface. In sports industry, shock pads are often referred as an "insurance
policy." According to FIFA-endorsed regulations, the shock-attenuation testing
(or G-Max) is recommended for every sports field. You can get a good G-max
without a shock pad, but you may want to consider our new shock pads in
residential landscaping for three fundamental reasons:
1. Increased Safety and
Shock pads help to prevent and to reduce
injuries and traumas. While required for athletes and children, homeowners may
love to feel smooth and delicate surface under their feet as well.
ï»¿2. Less Infill - the Higher
Infill can migrate on the turf surface. It
happens more often in heavy traffic areas. Shock pads reduce the amount of
infill (and subsequent infill "splash") by lowering the height of the fiber pile
and increasing the density of the pile itself. The concept of having shock pads
inside infill itself had changed due to low shock-attenuation levels and
extensive maintenance. Today, most business owners regard shock pads like just
like an extra insurance.
