How to Create a Safer Aquatic Center


You may have all the right signs posted and a lifeguard or two on duty, but if you aren't protecting your guests in dangerous fall zones, your aquatic center is lacking in a serious safety area. Chances are you have one or more areas that could benefit from a thorough safety inspection and upgrade. We'll tell you how the right safety padding can make a very impressive difference in injury prevention.




What Are Your Danger Zones?


If you have any of the following, you should immediately assess whether you have adequate fall-zone protection:


water play structures


lily pad-style features


water slides


diving boards


dive platforms


structural columns or other components



These are some basic common features seen at many aquatic facilities that are typically in need of fall-zone protection. For example, 10 m dive stands are common and are also very risky in terms of falls around the stand and ladder. Water play structures are gaining a lot of popularity as many centers include a wide variety of features to appeal to a larger clientele. What they all have in common is the need for reliable, high-quality safety padding. Not all safety pads are created the same; what might be adequate at a park won't hold up to the rigors of life at an aquatic facility where it's constantly exposed to water and pool chemicals.



We developed our popular line of SoftSide™ pads with the pool in mind. Created from cushioning safety foam covered in a thick layer of watertight PVC, our SoftSide pads are designed exclusively for aquatic usage. We custom create pads to fit your exact water feature but we also have padding in common ready-to-order sizes. SoftSide pads are available from 1/2”-4” thick depending on your fall-zone protection needs. SoftSide pads are pore-free for easy maintenance, resist common organic growth, and are also resistant to common pool chemicals. Made right here in the US.


Our pads also boast some pretty impressive safety stats: when tested, SoftSide pads reduced critical head impact injury by 97% and eliminated fatal head trauma by 100%. Our data was so impressive that our safety pads received the official endorsement of noted aquatic safety expert Dr. Tom Griffiths. When you can dramatically reduce or even eliminate the most serious fall-injury at your facility with the addition of SoftSide padding around or under your risk zones, it's a total win for your center. The attractive padding that will custom-fit even uncommon pool structures is ideal for any aquatic facility looking to create or upgrade a reliable safety system.
