Turf padding, or turf pads, is placed under artificial lawns to absorb shock.
Turf padding, or turf pads, is placed under artificial lawns to absorb shock. It keeps the ground soft and safe and comes in sheets of foam or rubber. These sheets can absorb the shock on impact, adding safety and resilience to your artificial turf surface. Turf padding will not move, but infill can shift over time. Heavy foot traffic or play can move the infill because it can pile up or wear down where there is a stress point.
Having turf pads installed with artificial turf that will be under a lot of stress or high impact lawns like sports arenas, playgrounds, or outdoor concert halls can ensure the artificial turf lasts longer, as well as keeps users safe. Turf pads offer an extra layer of protection not only for the greenery, but also absorbs shock for athletes and every day play.
