Ultimate surface comfort, exceptional drainage capabilities and high safety standards for recreation surfaces are not just a pipe dream with Next Generation Turf’s AX50 Shock Pad. No playground or sports field should go without this shock-absorbent layer.
The AX50 is a shock-absorbent layer that sits between the base and the artificial turf surface. This product is prefabricated, made from polyethylene via a chemical hinge foam process. The AX50 helps artificial turf systems provide comfort for users and meet required performance, drainage and safety characteristics over a longer duration of time than many other products on the market.
This product is ideal for fields across a wide range of sports including soccer, rugby, hockey and golf, as well as play and leisure zones such as playgrounds and gardens.
The AX50 provides an extensive range of benefits. It is extremely easy to install due to its lightweight composition, with only one day of installation required for a standard size sports field. A closed cell, non-absorbent structure ensures this PE foam installation is suitable to tackle any weather condition.
Thanks to neat edge cutting joints, the AX50 can be easily and accurately fixed. The unique design offers quality water drainage, will avoid expansion and contraction, and ensures a dimensional stable system. The AX50 provides exceptional shock absorption capabilities, vertical deformation and ball rebound characteristics, is corrosion-resistant and offers a long service life. The AX50 also has enhanced safety protection for users, which was granted by a proved HIC Test.
AX50 Shock pads are 10mm thick and available in 1.25m wide rolls. Rolls are 25m in length but can be easily customised to fit any space for any purpose.
CRITICAL FALL HEIGHT TESTING
Next Generation Turf recently had NATA accredited soft fall testing and certification performed on some of the company’s sporting and play turf products. These results were achieved by using the 10mm AX50 Shock Pad. They now offer a softfall system, rated up to 3.2m high, on selected products only.
