protect the player
3 points of safety
Science and injury data points to the playing field as an important safety piece equal to player safety equipment. Concussions, heatstroke, and leg injuries must be addressed across the entire sports environment, which starts with acknowledging helpful measures -a proper field.

PREVENTING CONCUSSIONS IN SPORTS HAS BECOME A NATIONAL PRIORITY. STUDIES SHOW 1 IN 5 CONCUSSIONS OCCURS BY HEAD TO SURFACE IMPACT, WHICH IS WHY BROCK HAS DEDICATED COUNTLESS HOURS TO PERFECTING THE RIGHT PRODUCT FOR OPTIMAL PLAYER SAFETY.
HEAT STRESS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE WITH ARTIFICIAL TURF. WITH FIELDS REACHING UP TO 180 DEGREES, PLAYERS HAVE A HIGHER RISK OF INJURY FROM DEHYDRATION, NOT TO MENTION A DECREASE IN ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE. THANKFULLY, THERE IS A SOLUTION – BROCKFILL!
NFL AND NCAA STUDIES BOTH SHOWED A MUCH HIGHER INCIDENCE OF LOWER LEG INJURIES ON ARTIFICIAL TURF THAN ON QUALITY NATURAL TURF. THAT’S WHY BENCHMARKING NATURAL GRASS IS AT THE ROOT OF EVERYTHING WE DO. CONSISTENCY ACROSS A SURFACE AND FOOT STABILITY ARE KEY TO SOLVING THIS PROBLEM.
protect the planet
We feel every company must make all efforts to do their part to protect our planet. For Brock, caring for the environment isn’t just a mission; it’s a way of life, which is why we strive to invent products that will never be wasted. Ever.
HOW ARE WE SUSTAINABLE?
There is a big difference between recycling and down-cycling. At the end of the day, unless a product could be reused repeatedly without losing its original quality and performance, it does not meet Brock’s standards. Sure, some products claim that they are diverting materials from a landfill, but a closer look exposes they are simply delaying this inevitable and wasteful outcome. When it comes time to replace these materials, it’s not financially viable to further down cycle them, so their destiny is thrown away.
The problem is, on our tiny planet, there is no “away.”
WHEN WE SAY WE RECYCLE WE MEAN IT
We’re proud to be the FIRST company in the artificial turf world to have attained a Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C) Certification on our PowerBase product lines.
WE PRACTICE WHAT WE PREACH
At a time when concern for our planet has never been higher, Brock has recently launched our C2Zero Program, with the goal of becoming a net-zero carbon company as fast as possible.
WE STAND BEHIND OUR PRODUCTS
Biobased products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials. These products provide an alternative to conventional petroleum derived products.
WE ARE TRULY HELPING THE PLANET
BrockFILL sequesters or captures CO2 from the air. The carbon that’s been sequestered in BrockFILL doesn’t simply re-enter the atmosphere when it decomposes. Proper composting strategies carefully manage inputs to ensure that the carbon captured by the BrockFILL enters the soil as it decomposes, meaning the benefits of BrockFILL extend even beyond the field!
NOAA Definition: Microplastics are small plastic pieces less than five millimeters long, which can be harmful to our ocean and aquatic life.
DID YOU KNOW?
- Europes Chemicals Safety (ECHA)– Is proposing a ban on intentional addition of microplastics to the environment.
- According to ECHA, the infill material used in (artificial turf) – small pieces of end-of-life tires – falls under the definition of “intentionally added microplastics”.
CHANGE IS REQUIRED
Now is the time to increase recyclables and natural products in the turf industry.
