For those sports fields where it is not (fully) possible, desired or even allowed to drain water into the subbase underneath, we developed a shock pad with built-in lateral drainage channels.
In a situation of violent rain (>50mm per hour) the maximum drainage distance* of ProPlay-Sport23D/170 is approximately 40m.
*The amount of rainfall (mm/hour) a field can handle without rainwater rising above the shock pad, in relation to its width (m) and based upon a slope of 0.6%
With a typical soccer field being 70m - 80m wide, 40m is the perfect drainage distance to smoothly transport rain water from the center of the field to the sides of the field. Even after violent rain the soccer field is ready to be played on instantly.
