Shock & Drain Pads

Reduce the impact of hitting the ground

Shock absorption is the top safety concern for field performance. Prevent the risks and opt for safer, longer play.

Our Solution

EnkaFlex's polymer core is a very firm underlay with low GMAX, significant energy restitution and natural play feel.

Resiliency makes the difference

Resiliency makes the difference

A proprietary polypropylene blend results in exceptional resiliency properties. This core of fused, entangled filaments is bonded on both sides with a geocomposite fabric which eliminates the need for a filter fabric and stops penetration and migration of soil fines.

Full-field drainage

The 95% open core structure also serves as a drainage layer which allows water to move efficiently in all directions to the perimeter. Because it maintains its original profile, flow rates are continuous and greater than with other drain product types, for the life of the field.

Save on infill

Save on infill

Using shock pads also contributes to reduced infill amounts, including crumb rubber, which has been controversial for player health, and made from old road tyres.

Durable

The flexible, lightweight polymer will not crush or break under repeated impact or heavy loads.
