High-Performance Shock Pad

REGUPOL abzorb

High-Performance Shock Pad

Our pre-fabricated shock pad offers an extra layer of cushioning for high-impact sports.

REGUPOL abzorb pre-fabricated synthetic turf shock pad is the perfect compliment to a well-constructed artificial turf product. Made from 92% post-consumer tire rubber, Abzorb is suitable for indoor and outdoor use under conventional non-infill synthetic turf systems and infill systems with rubber or sand and rubber. The porous composition of our shock pad underlayment allows water to pass through quickly so fields stay drier, safer, and cleaner.

At REGUPOL, we have the product know-how to help you build the safest playing field possible. Abzorb can be formulated to your shock attenuation specifications for force reduction and other cushioning properties.

Our proven high-performance shock pad is ideal for the following sports field turf:

  • Baseball/Softball
  • Field hockey
  • Football / Rugby
  • Golf
  • Lacross
  • Multi-sport fields
  • Playground turf
