Shock pad is a type of underlay that is often used as a base for artificial grass in schools and nurseries. Made from fused together polyethylene pieces, Shock pad is a fall cushioning substrate. It has a spongy, but firm feel which makes it perfect for use as an outdoor safety surface. Shock pads is a legal requirement in schools where high play equipment’s is used, but it is also becoming increasingly popular in back gardens as well. As the trend for bigger and better and ever more complex play structures in back gardens gathers pace, so does demand for the underlay shock pad. A climbing frame can provide hours of back garden fun for kids. Parents also want to ensure that when playing and the kids slips and falls they won’t get hurt. Shock pads also add safety from falls, increase the playability of your pitch and ensure that your artificial grass playing surface lasts longer. This helps increase the lifespan of your artificial grass if it is used as a playing surface by protecting the backing from abrasion and compaction. In addition, if your artificial grass is being used as a playing surface, a shock absorbing layer will provide a predictable bounce of the ball, and a safer more cushioned playing surface. On the other hand, installation of artificial grass can be tricky in properties with gardens that don’t have any side access. Using shock pad in these scenarios means a cleaner installation which minimizes the amount of hard landscaping material that needs to be taken though the house. While excavating the lawn will still be necessary, the installation process is quicker when shock pads is used as it replaces the need for an aggregate to be laid and compacted.
