Modern artificial grass is created using detailed scientific methods and research, both of which help ensure the creation of a synthetic turf that is durable, natural in appearance and safe for use. However, even with all of the work that manufacturers and scientists put in, it is impossible to make artificial turf that is perfect for all situations which is where artificial grass underlays make a difference.

Shock pad underlays are materials that are laid underneath the artificial grass during installation, with the intention of adding an extra trait to the final synthetic lawn that you are left with. Some underlays are designed to be weed resistant, making them perfect for use in your garden as well as saving you time and effort to remove unwanted weeds. However, the most common artificial grass underlay is the shock pad.

The Science Behind Underlay for Artificial Grass

Shock pads, made using polyethylene, are designed to be an impact absorbing surface in order to prevent injuries associated with falling in the playground. It is also common to find shock pads installed on roofs and other concrete areas to prohibit water from collecting, this is because of the well-designed drainage system that comes with them. This is also what allows for the realistic soft feel of walking on grass when laid under an artificial grass surface that will cushion any fall without any adverse effects on its durability or drainage capabilities.

Making for a Safe Environment

Whether fake grass has been installed in a residential property, a school playground or a communal park, it is important that the area is safe for all those that use it. Children playing are notorious for taking a tumble during play and, without proper underlay under the artificial grass, it can make for some pretty nasty injuries. 

Bumps and bruises happen, but a shock pad underlay will allow anyone who takes a tumble to get back up on their feed and continue with their activity. 

The Artificial Lawn Company stocks two of the industry’s shock pads, GrassFlex and LawnFlex, each varying in thickness and effectiveness at reducing impacts and ensuring safety. If your synthetic lawn is going to see regular use by children or as a play area, you simply can’t go wrong with these artificial grass underlays.
