Excellent Impact Absorption
We regularly supply our underlay for use in schools and children’s outdoor playgrounds. As the name suggests, our foam shock pad underlay creates a great impact absorbing base layer. You can then install artificial grass or another type matting on top of it to create a visually appealing appearance. We test all of our underlay pads in order to ensure that they conform to EN 1177:2008 safety standards. Depending on the tile thickness and sub-base it is possible to achieve critical fall heights from 1.2m up to 3m.
Please note: our thinner 12mm thick tiles are not suitable for use in critical fall height applications. These tiles are designed to create a smooth, level surface on roof terraces and balconies.
Our foam shock pad underlay is perforated in regular intervals to allow for quick and efficient drainage. This helps to prevent water from collecting in order to preserve the look of your artificial grass or matting. It also enables you to use our underlay in astro-turf and sports applications. We manufactured our underlay from a closed cell, polyethylene bonded foam. This material will not absorb liquid, which ensures that it will not be damaged from frequent rainfall.

As you can see above, we supply our shock pad tiles in 2 different sizes. This enables you to tailor the tile coverage to suit your specific application. The larger size tiles enable you to quickly cover a large area, reducing the number of tiles required. While the smaller tiles work perfectly in smaller more intricate areas, they are also much easier to handle.
The interlocking puzzle system enables you to quickly connect multiple tiles together to form a single secure surface. It also enables you enables you to connect the underlay together without the need for adhesive.
