Experts in high-quality shock pads

ProPlay shock pads are sustainable and form the perfect base for artificial turf systems for sports fields and playgrounds. The first ProPlay shock pad was produced in the Netherlands in the early 1990s and has since been the only shockpad that combines top performance with superior drainage capacity. In 2017, we opened a second, brand-new state-of-the-art production plant in the United States.

ProPlay: the shock pad that has it all.

Consistent high-quality to build on

Quality is at the core of what we do, and embedded through our entire organization. Both our plants in the Netherlands and the US are ISO 9001 certified, and that’s for a reason. We invest heavily in having our processes and products tested to ensure every pad meets our rigorous quality standards. Each plant has a comprehensive onsite testing laboratory to test our product characteristics, but also performance. That is what makes the difference in any project application.
