Shock pads are a critical element in ensuring safety for children whilst using fixed play equipment in school play areas and are installed under the artificial grass surface and provide numerous benefits.

1. Enhanced Safety:

  • Shock pads absorb the impact of falls, significantly reducing the risk of injuries. This feature is especially crucial in areas with playground equipment, where children may fall from heights.
  • By acting as a buffer, shock pads create a safer environment for play.

2. Critical Fall Height (CFH) Compliance:

  • CFH refers to the maximum height from which a fall will not result in a serious head injury.
  • Shock pads help ensure that the play surface meets CFH requirements. When installed beneath artificial grass, they provide an additional layer of protection, minimizing the risk of serious harm.

3. Improved Comfort:

  • Children benefit from the softer surface created by shock pads. The added cushioning makes play areas more enjoyable.
  • Additionally, the reduced stress on joints promotes better physical well-being for young users.
