Flashed is the climbing industry’s most trusted padding for route climbing areas.
Our system is great to walk on for high traﬃc areas. It’s easy to keep clean, suited for heavy traffic, and disperses energy well. Although we have done extensive testing on this padding at heights up to 45ft, accidents from any height, are always a possibility.
The same as with Bouldering, planning out your route padding during the early stages can lead to significant cost savings. Therefore ultimately, a better user experience. We offer many services to understand your specific needs, including on-site visits, full gym analysis, laser mapping, and CAD modeling. We then validate your requirements with in-house testing, our recommended fall-zone, and egress and develop a padding system that delivers the best composition and thickness for your budget, use, and style.
Our standard recommended Route Padding option has 2in Carpet Bonded foam with 4in PU open cell foam. Consider thicker PU with taller wall heights. Each carpet bond piece is attached using custom-made Velcro strips for a secure connection.
The Little Details
- In the design phase, we provide AutoCAD drawings of the layout and design of the facility.
- Under our padding system, we place a Vapour Barrier to help protect against moisture from coming up from the concrete floor.
- If there is no natural barrier, like a climbing wall, a perimeter will be built using superior fastening materials and custom-made Flashed fasteners.
- Our padding systems include warranties for workmanship and manufacturing defects. Therefore keeping your facility in top shape is a top priority, so turn-arounds with our in-house production minimize any downtime.
Our route flooring systems are more than just foam and CBF with thin Velcro to connect it; we have numerous unnoticeable aspects that set us apart.
