Artificial grass, also known as 3G grass, can provide multiple safety properties which natural grass and tarmac can’t, reducing the impact of accidents.
We have a number of products that offer safety properties, ranging from critical fall height protection (particularly relevant in playgrounds), cushioning to reduce the impact of a fall, and a non-abrasive surface, reducing ripped clothing and grazed knees.
Eco ShockSafe (Shockpad Boards)
If you’re installing play equipment such as swings, slides and climbing frames, the Eco ShockSafe boards are crucial. Made entirely from recycled material, they provide critical fall height protection. To reach different critical fall heights, we have different thicknesses available and by combining them, the range can be extended even further.
All Eco ShockSafe Boards have been tested to European Standard EN 1177:2008 and are therefore suitable for outdoor use on top of tarmac, concrete and subsoil surfaces
- Critical fall height protection

- Allows effective drainage
- Easy to install and maintain
- Long-lasting and highly durable
10mm Shockpad underlay
Our 10mm Shockpad underlay goes underneath your artificial grass to provide impact absorption. It gives your artificial grass a slightly cushioned, bouncy feel that helps to reduce the impact of trips and falls.
Falling over on tarmac can hurt and cause cuts, scrapes and torn clothing. Nomow artificial grass is a non-abrasive surface that reduces the likelihood of injury or damage to clothing.
The best of both worlds, Nomow’s Wetpour product offers the same non-abrasive surface that our artificial grass provides, and also delivers its own critical height protection. During the installation process, a layer of SBR – a protective rubber base – is installed underneath the Wetpour surface which provides the critical height protection.
