Notts Sport, a renowned global leader in the design and supply of high-performance sports systems, is thrilled to announce the launch of its highly anticipated ShockWave Collection.
The ShockWave Collection marks a significant leap forward in sports system technology, offering exceptional and unparalleled performance characteristics alongside a strong focus on environmental sustainability. This collection delivers a wide array of benefits across various sports disciplines, with a primary emphasis on enhancing the player experience and optimising playing conditions.
Since its inception in 2014, ShockWave has been successfully installed in over 26 projects, with the number steadily increasing each year. One notable instance is the recent installation of a FA and World Rugby compliant 3G pitch at Preston School in Yeovil. This installation utilised Tarkett’s PureGrain as the surface infill, representing a notable stride towards a more environmentally conscious future by avoiding the use of rubber crumb infill, which has recently come under scrutiny and falls within an EU-wide ban on intentionally added microplastics.
Notts Sport’s Research and Development Department has been consistently advancing ShockWave technology since 2014, meeting the growing demand from customers across various sectors for the most sustainable design solutions for their sports pitch projects.
As a result of this continuous innovation, Notts Sport is proud to introduce an expanded range of ShockWave products:
- ShockWave Onyx: Setting a new sustainability standard in artificial sports systems, this groundbreaking tile now contains a minimum of 35% recycled content. It leads the shock pad market by incorporating recycled materials while maintaining its 100% recyclable nature throughout the collection.
- ShockWave Hockey X: Developed in collaboration with England and Great Britain Hockey star Sam Ward, ShockWave Hockey X Sam Ward is tailor-made for hockey. This denser and more robust tile offers GEN2 and Hockey Plus performance while retaining the core benefits of ShockWave technology.
- ShockWave Platinum: Introduced in 2021, this innovation is 15mm slimmer than its predecessor, resulting in a sleek 40mm profile. It maintains unmatched critical fall height results of up to 2.5m. Its exceptional UV stability makes it an ideal choice for projects in warmer climates.
Duncan Bennett, Managing Director at Notts Sport, expressed his excitement about the ShockWave Collection, stating, “We are thrilled to introduce the ShockWave Collection which highlights the ongoing success of Shockwave in the sports pitch sector and bringing new technology and sustainable design solutions for a wider range of customers,” said Duncan Bennett, Managing Director at Notts Sport. “Our team has dedicated extensive research and development to create this shockpad that addresses the evolving needs of athletes, facility managers, and schools. ShockWave embodies our commitment to innovation, safety, and performance excellence.”
