The shock pad increases the drainage capability of any installation both vertically and horizontally. The open cell construction of the mat allows water to pass easily and readily between the closed cell flakes, which means no long term surface water will pool on the synthetic surface.

ProPlay and SafePlay are easy to install under synthetic turf surfaces. The ProPlay & SafePlay pads are manufactured with interconnecting dovetail joints [jig saw pieces], which enables them to be locked together to provide a solid safety surface base for a playground or sports pitch made from artificial turf. The ProPlay & SafePlay pads can be cut to size and shaped around play equipment.
