SportsEdge Releases ShockWave Turf Underlayment Throughout the U.S and Canada


SportsEdge, a division of ABT, has released the new ShockWave drainage and shock underlayment pads for synthetic turf. SportsEdge has partnered with EnPlast Technologies of Houston to exclusively offer these products in the US and Canada for athletic field applications. ShockWave offers drainage and shock attenuation performance that exceeds current pad offerings in the market with only half the thickness of comparable products at very competitive prices.

ShockWave is a thermoset elastomer-polyolefin composite made in the US. It is manufactured from 80% recycled materials and is 100% recyclable. Drainage, sports performance and safety tests show that ShockWave exceeds ASTM and FIFA requirements for high school, college and professional fields. Shockwave is produced in rolls that transverse the full width of the field, no matter the width. And unlike other roll goods, ShockWave “lays flat and stays flat” due to its low profile and high density.

“We are very excited to partner with SportsEdge, a leading marketer of athletic field solutions and drainage systems. The En-Plast advance pad technology fits perfectly into their market strategy and complements their offerings.” Giovanni Capra –President, En-Plast

“The excellent performance features of the ShockWave pad will serve the industry and public well. ShockWave brings big performance in a small package, a testament to the innovative design. We are thrilled to be part of this growing industry with En-Plast as a partner” Ralph Brafford – CEO, SportsEdge
