CoolPlay wasn't developed just to be cool. In designing the system, we ran a multitude of test with one goal in mind: cooler surfaces with no compromise to the safety and performance of our fields.
Crumb rubber as a top layer absords heat, causing the surface temperature to rise.
An all-sand system may be cool, but the surface would be far too hard.
Our organic and sand system is also cooler, but only CoolPlay offers a surface with ideal safety and performance.
Testing finally led us to the special EC top dressing that could replace the top layer of crumb rubber on our patented three-layer infill system - which is proven to offer better performance and safety in over 4,500 fields around the world.
The EC granule is durable, shock absorbing and absorbs far less heat than other alternatives.
