How Thick Should Your Wall Pads Be?

At Fieldwallpads.com, we have been providing our customers with state-of-the-art wall pads for over 30 years. As research has evolved and new safety regulations have come to light, we have continually changed our wall padding to match these requirements.

The padding needs to both absorb and resist impact to prevent injuries. If the padding is so thick that athletes bounce off on impact, it can cause more injuries. However, if the padding is too thin, the athletes could get injured from the impact of the surface behind the pads, which can cause more harm.
