The company says the new collection represents a “groundbreaking advancement in sports system technology, offering exceptional and unrivalled performance characteristics coupled with environmental and sustainable betterment”.
The collection of shock pads for synthetic sports pitches has been designed to offer benefits across various sporting disciplines, focusing on enhancing player experience and optimising playing conditions.
Following its inception in 2014, ShockWave has been successfully installed at over 26 projects, increasing in number each year.
One notable, recent installation is the FIFA and World Rugby compliant 3G pitch at Preston School in Yeovil. The installation utilised Tarkett’s’ PureGrain as the surface infill, representing a significant stride towards a more environmentally conscious future, as it avoids the use of rubber crumb infill.
The Notts Sport R&D department has continued to make advancements since 2014, continually meeting the requirements of an ever-increasing request from customers across all sectors wanting the most sustainable design solutions available for their Sports Pitch project.
As a result, Notts Sport is now unveiling an expanded range of ShockWave products.
Now, with a minimum 35% recycled content, this groundbreaking tile sets the standard for sustainability in artificial sports systems. It leads the shock pad market by incorporating recycled materials while retaining its 100% recyclable nature across the collection.
