ENSURE PLAYER SAFETY!

Padding is vital to ensure player safety indoors and outdoors. Indoor and outdoor padding requirements can range from posts, columns, walls and any hard or sharp surface close to the courts as these can cause potential injury to all users.
See padding regulations.

COLUMN PADDING

Most sports halls these days have large steel UC columns (RSJ or I Beams) and these are deadly when players impact on them. HiTech Sports have a range of custom made pads which fit over the flange on the face of the column.

WPRSJ Pads 
Similar to the wall pads but narrower, using the same OSB board, 50 mm thick foam and heavy duty vinyl.

  • Pads are 1800 mm high and normally mounted 100-150 mm above the floor which will give an effective height of 1.95 m so will clear any surface water or floor sweeping, cleaning and scrubbing machines.
  • As standard they are 50 mm wider than the column and are attached via hidden velcro strips.
  • Will only cover the face of the column not the sides.
  • Keeping within a maximum width of 630 mm, U or L shape variants are possible.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Variants available to suit corners, alcoves, braces etc
  • Custom cutting and fitting of pads can be done on site to ensure proper fit.
  • Widely known as the best column pads available with exceptional quality.

Wide range of colours and these colours can be mixed up as alternating colours have a big visual impact.

Custom Columns Pads 
As every building is different with different widths or depths of these columns and different levels of risk so therefore custom padding is often required. Pads can be made to suit UC columns (RSJ or I Beams), square or round posts. Several different methods are available to fully enclose in the pads including the sides to wrap around 2-3-4 sides.

  • Higher heights are possible.
  • Padding thickness can vary from 30-100 mm depending on risk and size.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Variants available to suit corners, alcoves braces, windows, doors, etc
  • Custom cutting and fitting of pads can be done on site to ensure proper fit.
  • Widely known as the best wall pads available with exceptional quality.

POST PADDING

HiTech Sports can pad any post from a small round 42 mm post up to a largest post imaginable.
Netball posts, volleyball posts, badminton posts, basketball posts, rugby posts, AFL posts, football posts, futsal posts, veranda posts, pergola posts, shade structure posts, daycare centre posts from round to square and any other shape you have.

Using high density open cell foam in our heavy duty vinyl in any of our colours.

All we need is the height you require, the post shape, post diameter, and the level risk determines the foam density thickness. And if there any obstruction’s or obstacles on or around the post.

Using full length velcro, the pads will not balloon out and will keep their shape. Although initially tight, they will settle over time and learn to remain in their new shape.
