Notts Sport launches innovative new shockwave system for sports pitches

Leading synthetic surfacing supplier Notts Sport has launched a new product which is set to revolutionise the construction of artificial sports pitches.
Innovative ShockWave tiles – so-called because of their wave-like contours – slot together like jigsaw pieces and form the key component of the ShockWave EcoBase system.

These lightweight, easy-to-handle tiles are much simpler and quicker to install than tarmac or stone bases which is how pitches have traditionally been laid for synthetic facilities.

The system is guaranteed, with the correct maintenance and usage, to provide a minimum of 20 years.
Notts Sport chairman Shaun Patrick says: “We’ve spent two years developing the ShockWave system, in consultation with major sports governing bodies, contractors and industry experts.

“This unique product offers a host of financial and environmental benefits to sports facility providers and is set to make a huge difference to the construction of artificial sports pitches.

“We’re delighted to launch the ShockWave EcoBase system in the UK and are looking forward to rolling it out worldwide.”
Notts Sport has successfully used a similar tile system as part of its ChildsPlay solution for many years, and has now enhanced this product for use in sport, with an upgraded thickness and density.

The structured stability provided by the ShockWave tile means that half the depth of quarried aggregate is required underneath the base, therefore reducing the cost of materials, the installation time, and the number of heavy lorries required to deliver materials and remove excavated earth from the site.
The system has gone through full laboratory testing at Loughborough University, with further performance and drainage testing at Labosport. ShockWave is patented and comes with a comprehensive 20-year warranty.

Made from Expanded Polypropylene (EPP), the ShockWave tile is 100% recyclable.
Notts Sport has established itself as one of the world’s foremost specialists in the design and supply of synthetic surfacing systems for sport, play and leisure.
Thanks to Notts Sport’s unique, no-obligation Design and Advisory Service, all customers benefit from expert advice and assistance from the design stage to installation and aftercare – all at no additional charge to the supply of the surfacing solution.
What’s more, Notts Sport can also help schools, local authorities and sports clubs to work together to provide first-class facilities without the need for upfront funding through its Fast Track Funding initiative.
