Safeshell® and Safeshell SmoothPlay™ make up our nontoxic, organic infill line-up that come from 100% USA-grown walnut shells. They give you everything you love about a natural infill, while not compromising on safety, integrity, or quality. They are low-maintenance, long-lasting, and remarkably safe for people, pets, and the environment—a total game-changer for your turf system.
There’s no shortage of applications for artificial turf that uses Safeshell infill, from in the backyard and around the pool to shared recreational spaces. Safeshell’s toughness, durability and naturally cooling properties make it a great fit for the sports field, while its allergen- and toxin-free status make it a perfect, and perfectly safe, pick for the playground too.
Safeshell SmoothPlay is our latest innovation in infills that is cooler, with less friction and high durability. Due to its fine granular size, it settles easily into dense turf systems, and is recommended for soccer, baseball, and American football.
Safe & Organic
With Safeshell, you get peace of mind that your infill is made from organic and food-grade components. We also developed a patent-pending process that reduces allergens that remain on the shell after separation from the nut. Following FDA guidelines, our process removes allergens below 2.4 parts per million.
