SHOCK PADS THAT OUT PERFORM ALL ARTIFICIAL TURF PADS ON THE MARKET
Brock’s Shock Pad (SP) Series was engineered as a lower-cost alternative to our PowerBase products and are often used in field replacements. In choosing our Shock Pad series, you won’t be disappointed. Choose Brock today!
What’s the secret?
Brock SP comes in several thicknesses, from 14mm to 20mm, depending on the turf you select, always keeping the overall system’s performance in mind. Fields that utilize an SP shock pad demonstrate the safety, speed, and impact performance that replicates a quality natural turf surface, plus they drain fast, and they last longer.
Brock’s shock pads series will outperform other shock pads nearly twice as thick. That’s because it’s engineered for artificial turf and the impact during play. A patented material using polypropylene with a micro coating binder produces a material with an open pore structure for fast drainage and a unique impact profile ideal for artificial turf.
Large, robust dovetail interlock makes installation fast and easy.
The open-pore structure allows water to pass vertically through the material.
Micro coating bonds the material, maintaining the porosity of the pad.
Interaction of particles keeps field stiff for running, soft for impacts.
a shock pad for every turf
WHEN SHOULD I USE THE SP SERIES?
A. Use SP when there is a vertically draining stone base, both for turf replacement projects and new construction.
B. When cost is an issue, but building the safest field possible is still a priority!
All Series SP products come with a 16-year warranty covering durability, plus a Gmax guarantee of <120 for the field’s life and a Drainage>250” per hour.
Does it drain?
Yes, SP is a completely permeable product. Every expanded polypropylene (EPP) bead is coated with a micro-binder that allows the beads to adhere to each other. The natural void space between beads allows water to move through the pad freely. We have independent test results from third-party testing laboratories that shows that our SP Series shock pads drain vertically at over 700” per hour…way faster than the turf that’s on top of it.
Why is it multi-colored?
The white beads are virgin expanded polypropylene (EPP), while the black beads are recycled material. Each SP Series panel has no more than 30% recycled content in it. The performance of both beads is identical.
Can you drive on it?
Yes, our ShockPad Series 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 SP Series 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.
