Shock pads for use in playgrounds and children’s play areas should have a critical fall height rating; this is the measured height from which a child can fall from equipment, head first, onto the material without sustaining critical head injuries.
Impacts are absorbed on compression, creating a cushion to soften the fall and returning to its original shape once pressure is lifted. This design ensures your artificial turf will stay flat and level regardless of the number of impacts it sustains. Excellent drainage guarantees that play areas soon dry out after the rain, ensuring playtime isn’t restricted to sunny days.
Our shock pads are comprised of interlocking tiles for easy placement, covering 2m2 and available in two thicknesses, depending on your requirements.
Grassflex tiles are thicker, measuring at 35mm and offering a tested critical fall height of 1.5m – perfect for installations where safety is a priority such as children’s playgrounds. Our Lawnflex tiles are more suited to roof terraces or gardens and measure 18mm in thickness.
Anyone with basic DIY skills will successfully be able to lay our shock pads, however, if you’d prefer a quality installation service, you can request an installation quote using our online form.
