A shockpad or Resin Bound Rubberised Crumb is an In – Situ durable layer that is designed to go between the final playing surface and a Dynamic / Engineered sub base. Laid to depths of 12 – 15mm, it is made from Black SBR, shock absorbing rubber which is machine or hand laid onto the sub base.
If the client asks for the shock pad to be installed directly onto stone then it has to be laid to a depth of 20-25mm thick.
The specification of the scheme will have an effect on the surfacing costs. An All Weather Pitch or Synthetic Turf are normal top layers for the in situ rubber chipping shockpad. Sports such as football, hockey and lacrosse are perfect due to the shock absorbing, durable and soft underlay.
The Resin Bound, Installed Rubberised Crumb is designed to stop the 3g Artificial Pitch from rucking and this will offer a greater sports surface longevity.
