SoftSide Safety Pads are perfect for today's demanding safety fall zone applications. SoftSide is an incredibly durable, 1" to 4" thick, watertight, textured, slip-resistant covered foam padding system designed for water playground and pool use. Our safety pads are custom built to suit your
specific needs and may be owner installed.
Modern aquatic facilities require CPSC tested safety padding in zones where special fall protection is required. Designers typically install padding systems in fall zones surrounding play structures, diving boards, at the run out or base of water slides, and beneath or around other water play aquatic features.
Available texture options include: slip-resistant, extra slip-resistant or smooth surface material depending upon the design application. Designers seeking fall protection generally determine thickness selection by comparing the platform height of the play area or activity feature with the independent CPSC Guideline Head Form fall height test data (available upon request). The SoftSide Safety Pad System employs the same installation concept, proven details and materials originally developed for use with the RenoSys PVC Pool Shell. Secure installation techniques involve a combination of underwater compatible caulking, mechanical fasteners along with fully fused welding of all PVC seams. Life expectancy of a RenoSys pad is dependent upon proper maintenance and the amount of facility usage. Normal installation is warranted to comply with the provided test data for a period of two years with a foam life expectancy of five to 15 years. It is the responsibility of the owner to make certain adequate fall protection is provided after two years.
