SnapSports® Athletic Surfaces Awarded Additional U.S. Patent For ShockTower® ‘Multi-Stage Shock Absorbing Modular Flooring Apparatus’

SnapSports Patented ShockTower Technology

Our exclusive patented designs have exceeded the expectations of our customers all over the world.

SnapSports, the worlds leading manufacturer and supplier of modular sports flooring, was awarded an additional US patent for their ShockTower modular sports flooring technology. The new patent covers a multi-level support design which acts as a dual-stage vertical impact absorber, reducing fatigue and injuries to players during athletic play. This most recent patent awarded, is the latest of over 24 patents encompassing the SnapSports line-up.

The ShockTower® patented system incorporates sixteen independent shock absorbers, or ShockTowers, per square foot to dissipate sound and reduce stress on joints and muscles.

ShockTower Technology is used in the SnapSports ¾" tall suspended sports floor system and, as tested by US independent laboratory tests, has the highest shock-absorption rating of any modular sports tile. The ShockLock® and Dual Suspension® systems allow for greater impact stability and superior performance during play. The under-structure of the modular sports surface provides a cushioning effect to help with the reduction of injuries and fatigue to athletes from high impact sports and increases ball response in sports like basketball, Futsal®, team handball, inline hockey, tennis, and volleyball.

“We believe we manufacture and supply the best modular sports flooring systems available today. Our exclusive patented designs have exceeded the expectations of our customers all over the world,” said Jorgen Moller, CEO of SnapSports.
