Enka®Flex

Shock absorption and drainage for artificial turf

    Overview

    EnkaFlex provides a resilient drainage layer under sand-filled artificial turf, on an engineered or dynamic base.

    For fields designed with safety in mind

    For fields designed with safety in mind

    EnkaFlex’s proprietary Polyamide blend makes it exceptionally resilient with excellent shock absorption. Lower Gmax values show how it reduces the severity of impact, making traumatic brain injury less likely.

    Full-field drainage layer

    EnkaFlex has a Polyamide core of fused, entangled filaments, with a geocomposite fabric bonded to each side. Its molded pyramid core structure maintains flexibility, while the fabric eliminates the need for a filter fabric, keeping out soil particles.

    Stable and uniform resilience without migration

    Stable and uniform resilience without migration

    Fields with infill systems near the end of their lifespan (typically in 8-10 years, depending on maintenance levels) will need infill redistribution, as the infill migrates over time. Enka®Flex supports infill resilience and provides additional uniform resilience.

    Other Features
    • Significantly improves energy restitution and shock absorption (Gmax).
    • Reduces the need for infill.
    • Increases flow rates and continuous flow, even under heavy loads.
    • Impermeable bottom layer, optional. Fits in close water circle field irrigation systems.
    • Provides excellent durability.
    • 3" fabric overlap flap on both sides.
    • Second fabric eliminates the need for additional filter fabric.
    • Reduces costs subbase construction due to insulation capability.
