CARPENTER AIMS FOR THE ULTIMATE SPORTS EXPERIENCE WITH RE-BOUNCE® SHOCK PADS FOR ARTIFICIAL TURF

re-bounce® into our world of shock pads

Artificial turf and re-bounce® shock pads are a winning combination on numerous levels. With artificial turf surfaces, sports facilities can use their available space more efficiently, create longer-lasting pitches and reduce the time and investment needed for maintenance. re-bounce® shock pads complement these benefits by ensuring player comfort and safety, delivering more consistent performance and contributing to a more sustainable pitch with a smaller environmental footprint. The combination results in the optimal performance, safety and longevity of artificial turf systems.

Thanks to the recent acquisition of Recticel Engineered Foams, Carpenter has extended its portfolio with shock pads that have a well-established track record and welcomed a team of experts in engineered solutions with vast experience in the artificial turf industry. Carpenter re-bounce® is the ideal partner for artificial turf producers and users: a shock pad partner you can count on.

re-bounce® into sustainable sports

Key to the success of re-bounce® is its open cell bonded polyurethane foam, which offers significant environmental benefits without compromising on performance or quality. With a circular sports economy in mind, post-industrial trim foam (production waste) is used as raw material to create a durable product that is now fully recyclable at the end of its life.

As well as reducing environmental impact, the system has financial advantages for customers and project owners, presenting opportunities to save on waste disposal and to qualify for sustainability subsidies. The artificial turf industry as a whole will benefit from this improved and circular production model.

re-bounce® into climate adaptation

re-bounce® is a climate-adaptive shock pad that offers future proof, sustainable benefits. Thanks to its open cell structure, the foam absorbs water which enables cooling through evaporation, reducing heat stress for the players and environment. The capacity for water absorption is combined with excellent drainage performance, making it an ideal complement to water collection systems. The shock pad also conducts heat easily through the turf system, facilitating field heating and energy collection systems.

re-bounce® into the perfect match

All of this adds up to a better experience, which is extended to people who own, manage, and build sports facilities. The shock pads come in a range of types and thicknesses and in tailored lengths. Each product is supported by first-rate customer service, advice and technical expertise to ensure quick, easy installation. A 20-year warranty, based on constant product performance over time, and an attractive total cost of ownership, add to peace of mind.

The owner benefits go hand in hand with a next-level experience for players. re-bounce® shock pads meet official sport associations’ criteria and standards, including EN 15330-4. In addition, the improved and homogenous sport performance properties of the pitch make the players feel safer and feel less stress, which reduces injury risk.
