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:
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.
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.
