The pole vault landing areas play a crucial role in the sport of pole vaulting. The landing areas provide cushioning to the athletes when they land and is a very important equipment for the players safety. Thus, we make sure to design our landing areas with the players safety being of primary importance to us.
- Our pole vault landing areas are made of vinyl coated woven polyester fabric with the base and top pads encased in non-tearing vinyl coated woven polyester mesh.
- A very high quality Urethane foam is used to provide optimum cushioning while landing. The Urethane foam is tested so as to have a high spring constant so as to absorb the weight of the athlete while having the ability to retain the original shape after the applied load is removed. This gives our landing areas unmatched durability and longer life span.
- Foam: The foam is arranged in a lattice formation having many layers of material with different densities of foam in each layer. The lattice structure has voids in its formation that traps air in them. This helps to absorb the force of impact when the athlete lands, providing him with considerable cushioning to break the fall without any injuries. The lattice formation also provides the necessary strength and the desired level of spring constant to the structure for maximum durability.
- Velcro System: ATE Pole vault landing areas are equipped with 50mm of Velcro attachment system. This system keeps the top and base pad firmly together, minimizing separation and increasing safety.
- Top Pad: Our Pole vault landing areas come complete with a 50mm top pad fabricated out of non-tearing, breathable mesh.
- Hooks: All of the hooks fitted on our landing areas are fabricated out of high quality plastic which is rust free. This is necessary for athlete safety as it is not desirable to have any exposed metal on the landing surface.
- All our landing areas have cut-outs to incorporate the stands within the outer boundary of the area itself.
Rain cover and Platform are optional and must be ordered separately.
