When you’re looking to enhance the safety at your athletic facilities, you need to do your research and consider a variety of different factors before you make your final purchase. In addition to the safety of your athletes, staff members, and coaches, you need to think about the layout of your athletic facility, as well as how you want your design to look.

With all these different aspects in mind, you then must set a budget and consult with an expert to determine what choices are best for your facilities. It all is quite the complex and comprehensive process—but we’re here to help. Here, our team at Fieldwallpads.com will discuss everything you need to take into account before purchasing wall pads.

DO THE WALL PADS GO ABOVE AND BEYOND TO PREVENT INJURIES?

One of the primary things you need to consider before you purchase wall pads is their safety specifications. While each wall pad needs to meet specific safety standards set by governing bodies, of course, it is crucial that you also research wall padding companies that go above the norm to ensure the safety of their customers.

When you choose Fieldwallpads.com, not only are you getting products that meet each standard, you are also getting products that we design to be a step above the rest. With our own independent testing, we can guarantee that our products are state-of-the-art and will reduce the likelihood of concussions and other serious injuries.

CAN THE WALL PADS BE CUSTOMIZED FOR MY FACILITIES?

Another important factor you need to consider when shopping for wall pads is whether they can be customized for your specific athletic facilities. The wall pads you choose need to cover all potentially dangerous areas, and they need to be attachable to practically any surface.

At Fieldwallpads.com, each of our wall pads and other safety products can be customized to attach to any surface. We design wall pads for dugouts, fences, walls, bleachers, stages, and more. Each of our products can be attached to several different surfaces, such as:

●        Bricks

●        Metal

●        Wood

●        And more!

In addition to being customizable for any surface, our wall pads can also be cut to the exact specifications of your facility. The wall pads and other products will cover all surfaces they need to, and they will have cutouts to match areas of your facilities that include specific places like fire extinguishers, outlets, door handles, and more.

CAN THE WALL PADS BE BRANDED?

If you’re making such a significant investment in new athletic padding, it needs to pull double duty as both assets to your players’ safety and a brand-boosting powerhouse. Otherwise, you’re simply not getting the most out of your purchase, and the ambiance of your facility will suffer.

As we cover in our stadium padding blog, branding is “the core of your marketing success.” But don’t just take our word for it; Oregon Sports News also attests to this concept’s importance: “Strong brands command customer loyalty and premium prices, constituting valuable assets that drive the company’s revenue and growth.”

But what does it mean to brand a wall pad? It’s more than sticking a logo or a sponsor’s name on it. We dive into this topic in detail in our wall padding blog, so check it out for the full picture. In short: stick to your style guide, consider using them as you would a banner, and fully embrace the fact that they make up a lot of visual “real estate.” Then you’ll be golden!

WHERE WILL THE WALL PADS BE PLACED?

This relates to the customization question, but it’s unique enough of a concept that it requires its own section. The question of where you put your wall pads has more to do with what sport needs their support, in addition to what environment they’ll need to weather, than how they’ll be hung or if they can be customized into the necessary shapes.

A baseball field, for example, is unique in that it needs dugout padding in order to be considered safe, while it may or may not need pole pads depending on your facility’s layout. Volleyball courts, on the other hand, will definitely need pole padding, but they probably won’t need dugout pads—save for the extremely off chance they also cater to your baseball team in some way.

Indoor and outdoor pads, while they fundamentally serve the same purpose, have to deal with different stressors, and this should be considered accordingly during the purchasing process. While both, for example, might have to deal with some form of UV exposure, your outdoor pads are most likely going to need to be much stronger against it than indoor ones.
