Turf Underlayment Shock Pad

ArmaSport® turf-underlayment shock-absorption pad: The ideal choice for exceptional sports field performance

ArmaSport® Turf Underlayment cushions indoor and outdoor playing surfaces, providing consistent shock absorption across the field and goal to goal. 

Unlike synthetic turf fields that depend on infill material, ArmaSport pad installations provide protection across 100% of the field, all the time – without loss or migration of the cushioning material to the edges. Supplied in rolls to prevent material fly-away, the long lengths and turf-carpet widths are all designed to make installation fast and easy. And our built-in, state-of-the-art drainage system ensures efficient water removal.

For more than 35 years, our foam has been the preferred turf-underlayment pad for consistent playing conditions and greater field longevity.
