How to Care For Your Pads
Climbing Gym Padding takes a severe beating and high impact, and it should be expected that padding maintenance will be required throughout the lifespan of the product. Keeping on top of scheduled maintenance will have your padding performing and looking its best for the long term.
Wear & Tear
The top cover of your padding system is what people notice first, and keeping it clean with regular vacuuming will maintain aesthetic quality and comfort. Holes or tears may happen, and it is best to patch or cover them as soon as possible to stop them from increasing in size. Prevention is the way to overcome this. Take care with volumes, holds, ladders, and tools when route setting. Keeping the padding tight by readjusting the cover panels is helpful. Ask us how the best way to do that, depending on your cover type. We’ll also walk you through this during installation, so you have the tools and knowledge to address it on the fly.
Foam will naturally soften over time with use. Routine checks should be done and if any foam spot has been deemed too soft or unsafe then immediately close that area and remediate.
Our custom Velcro strips are designed to take a beating and protect the cover panels’ connection points. We designed in redundant sew lines and additional fabric so the velcro strip stays together even if top thread are abraded. This adds life to the product and reduces maintenance time.
Doing regular cleaning and maintenance checks will keep your padding systems looking and performing optimally.
