Soft Landings

Landing pads are more than just aesthetic; they play an important role in safety by preventing abrasions and impact injuries. Chlorine-resistant SlidePad landing pads are custom-made with PolySoft, a safety-surfacing product that has been used in the aquatics industry for more than 30 years. PolySoft is a polyolefin material that is hygienic and fungistatic. It does not contain any nutritive medium, which means no mold or fungi growth.
