CORE SHOCKPAD - Cushioned Underlay

CORE Shockpad consists of thermal bonded (closed cell) cross-linked Polyethylene foam (PEX). This foam is environmentally friendly derived from production residues containing no contaminants and has a lifespan in excess of 100 years.

CORE Shockpad provides the ultimate underlay for all types of artificial grass creating an unbelievably soft cushioned feel to your new lawn, whilst making it easier to lay your artificial turf.

Traditional artificial grass installations use a separate geotextile membrane and around 20mm of sharp sand as a bedding layer over your sub base  to iron out minor deformities in the base , over time the sand becomes over compacted and stones within the base layer can work their way toward the surface resulting in an uncomfortable underfoot experience.

By simply laying our Shockpad you can eliminate the prospects of this ever happening and create a surface that is far more luxurious, with an 18mm foam underlay the surface takes on a completely different feel with a soft cushioned effect.

Additional layers of Shockpad can be combined to provide critical fall height protection to European Standard EN 1177 around areas of play equipment or adjacent to areas where falling from height is a possibility.

[aTables id=”6256″]

According to the European Standard EN 1177 (in the UK known as BS EN 1177) safety flooring should be installed around all play equipment with a critical fall height that exceeds 0.6m

The Impact Area is the area which can be hit by the falling user. This area should be free of obstacles and covered with impact-absorbent safety surfacing, sufficient for the given critical fall height.

ADHESIVE

.

STEP 1

core-lawn-install-step1Remove the existing turf and excavate to a depth of approximately 100mm.

Remove any large protruding stones that remain to create a semi-smooth surface.

STEP 2

Edge the area with a tanalised wooden batten, use small stakes to hold the edging in place and fix with galvanised screws or nails. Cover the area with a geotextile membrane, this will help prevent weed growth and stop the sub-base migrating into the soil below.

STEP 3

Cover the geotextile membrane with MOT type 1 aggregate to a depth of 75mm* and compact using a vibrating plate or roller to form a suitable sub-base.

(*75mm or necessary depth to achieve firm ground).

STEP 4

Cover the MOT with a 20-30mm layer of coarse sand or 3-6mm aggregate and level using a wooden spazzle or the back of a broom. It is optional to lay a CORE Shockpad to achieve a more cushioned surface.

STEP 5

Position the roll at one edge and unroll over the layer of sand, try not to drag the grass into place as this will disturb the levelled layer of sand.

Ensure the pile is facing the main viewpoint.

STEP 6

For best results, leave the grass for 3-4 hours or overnight if there are any prominent wrinkles or creases allowing time for them to drop out before trimming and securing.

STEP 7

To join the grass ensure the pile is facing the same direction, peal back the two joining edges and lay the seaming tape in the centre of the joint. Ensure to remove the manufacturing strip before joining.

STEP 8

Apply the adhesive to the seaming tape in a zig-zag formation.

Fold back the two joining edges and press down firmly to form a neat joint.

STEP 9

Trim the edges to shape using a sharp stanley knife, remember to cut through the backing of the grass first. Secure the grass to the timber batten using galvanised ring shank nails every 15-25cm.
