What’s the difference?

We look at a field as a piece of equipment that affects athlete’s safety, and we believe that a safer system for the players drains faster, lasts longer, saves money, and preserves the environment.

PowerBase YSR is made from expanded polypropylene, one of the most durable polymers on earth. Each panel is molded individually, allowing precise quality control. This results in a field that is perfectly flat and totally consistent underfoot.  It is also infinitely recyclable without ever losing performance. A good artificial sports surface is tuned for the athlete. PowerBase YSR was engineered for schools and recreational fields.

PROVEN, FAST DRAINAGE

Brock PowerBase YSR has large lateral channels that transport water to the collector system along the edge. Even where the panels intersect, the drainage channels line up, so there is no interruption in water flow.

HELPFUL TIPS

WHEN SHOULD I USE POWERBASE YSR?

A. REPLACING AN OLD, HARD SYNTHETIC TURF FIELD. Using a shorter turf and YSR results in better play and greater safety adds additional drainage to the field and gives you a much more consistent surface for footing. Add an organic infill and now you have a field that will perform like a quality natural grass one and be significantly cooler. 

B. WHEN BUILDING A PLAYER SAFETY FIRST FIELD.

C. WHEN PUTTING ARTIFICIAL TURF OVER A NON-DRAINING BASE SUCH AS CONCRETE ON A ROOFTOP OR INDOOR FACILITY.

FAQs

What’s it made out of -it looks like Styrofoam?
All our Brock shock pads are made from expanded polypropylene (EPP). EPP is an extremely durable product that gives our shock pads the perfect balance of safety, durability, and performance. The only thing that negatively affects EPP is long exposure to UV, and since it’s buried under your turf, it’s never exposed to the sun.

Does it drain?
Yes, PowerBase YSR actually has more and larger perforations than the synthetic turf that sits on top. It can handle all the water that drains through the turf, and it can get rid of it quicker. Independent testing shows that PowerBase YSR drains at over 500”/hour!

Are you sure it will last multiple life cycles of turf?
Yes, we already have over 100 fields where the turf has been replaced, and the Brock has been re-used. In all of those cases, the new field’s test results are the same as when originally installed.

Can you drive on it?
Yes, our PowerBase YSR Warranty allows for load limits that far exceed most turf manufacturer load limits. Additionally, as long as you protect the field with a rigid field protection system, you can host other events, such as concerts and graduations.

How does it handle expansion and contraction in hot/cold climates?
Every PowerBase YSR panel is engineered to withstand the extreme conditions of all climates. Each panel has expansion crush ribs built in to absorb the force of expansion of the panels. Because it is made of one material, we know exactly how much it will expand and contract in the most extreme weather conditions, which is factored into the manufacturing of each panel.
