When you’re looking to improve safety at your athletic facilities, you need to consider the design and layout of your facility, as well as the composition of your safety products. For instance, when you invest in wall padding for your indoor and outdoor athletic facilities, you need to take into account the environmental situation, the layout of your facility, the sports that will be played in your facilities, and more. At Fieldwallpads.com, we have been in this business for years and have made wall padding and other protective equipment for nearly every situation imaginable. Through our own independent research and countless tests, we have developed the safest, most advanced wall padding on the market. Here, our safety and design experts will discuss how thick your wall pads should be and how we will ensure they are the right fit for your situation.

What to Consider for Your Wall Pads

The specifications of your wall pads change depending on their intended purposes, what you request, safety guidelines, and the opinions of our safety team. When you come to our team at Fieldwallpads.com, we’ll schedule an initial consultation with you to determine your needs and establish a free quote for you. When you’re considering your wall pads, you need to look into the layout of your facilities to determine the areas that are most at-risk for injuries. For instance, you need to consider the following:

●        The surface of the wall

○        Brick

○        Chain link

○        Cement

○        Metal

○        And more

●        How close the walls are to the field of play

●        Any posts, railings, or bleachers

●        Step guards

●        And more

Once you establish areas of concern, then you can reach out to our team to determine how thick the wall pads should be to prevent injuries.

Wall Pad Thickness

As soon as you establish where you need wall pads, we will get to work determining how thick they should be. At Fieldwallpads.com, based on our years of independent research, we have determined that most wall pads, no matter what sport they’re being used for, should be at least a couple of inches thick. When there’s a collision with a wall, you want the padding to both absorb and resist the shock of the collision. To prevent injuries and soften the blow, the foam will absorb a great deal of the impact, while also resisting it enough that the people in the collision gently bounce off to avoid worse dangers below the surface of padding.
