XPE shock pad is not only a European trend but a practical solution for sensitive applications.XPE shock pad provides a useful way to add safety and resilience to the artificial grass surface. So, it is regarded as an “insurance policy” in the sports industry. According to FIFA-endorsed regulations, the shock-attenuation testing (or G-Max) is recommended for every sports field. You are able to get a good G-max without a shock pad, while you might like to consider our new XPE shock pads in residential landscaping due to the following three fundamental reasons:

  • Better Safety, Softness, and Comfort

XPE Shock pads assist to prevent and to reduce injuries and traumas. Not only It is required for athletes and children, but also homeowners may prefer to feel smooth and delicate surface under their feet.

  • Fewer Infilling and higher Resilience

Infilling grid is easy to migrate on the turf surface, which will happen more often in heavy traffic areas. XPE shock pads reduce the number of infill 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 extra insurance.
