Fall protection systems
Soft landing included
Fall protection coverings and fall protection systems are at least as important as the devices we fall from.
IN SCHOOL AND PLAYGROUND, BUT ALSO WHEN EATING OR SHOPPING, WE WANT HIGH-QUALITY EXERCISE OFFERS FOR OUR CHILDREN.
Fall protection coverings and fall protection systems are at least as important as the devices we fall from. In school and on the playground, but also when eating or shopping, we want high-quality exercise offers for our children. Of course, security plays a crucial role in this.
The challenges are diverse, as are the solutions. The FLEXPERIENCE fall protection system offers maximum safety. Here are three examples.
IN THE MALL OF SWITZERLAND, NOT ONLY QUESTIONS OF SAFETY, BUT ALSO THE DESIGN POSSIBILITIES WERE DECISIVE.
The Mall of Switzerland in Ebikon (Canton Lucerne) is the second largest shopping and leisure destination in Switzerland with a total area of 65,000 m². The concept of the mall combines shops and restaurants with leisure and sports facilities and more than 1,500 m² of play areas.
When it came to the indoor play world in Ebikon, it wasn’t just questions of safety that were decisive, but also the wide range of design options with Flexperience.
The use of a total of six different colors resulted in a colorful and diverse world of games in the Mall of Switzerland that is unique in Switzerland. The installation heights of the Flexperience fall protection floors of 40 to 90 mm guarantee safe play, fun and movement with a maximum required fall height of 2.60 m.
With a color mix of red and bright red, the first FLEXPERIENCE fall protection surface in Germany is rolling out the red carpet for its young guests in the restaurant.
The first FLEXPERIENCE fall protection area in Germany was put into operation in summer 2019 in a new branch of the system catering provider “Kochlöffel” in Steinfurt.
With a color mix of red and bright red, the installed fall protection system rolls out the red carpet for the young guests in the restaurant. Together with the individually designed play and slide tower, the children can play carefree and safely on the approximately 25 m² fall protection area every time they visit the restaurant.
Thanks to the medium gray chosen for the top layer, the play area completely takes up the design of the surrounding buildings and the new building.
When the Weissenstein school complex in Würenlingen was expanded in May 2020, the outdoor facilities were also redesigned. With the new construction of various school rooms, a kindergarten, auditorium and a double gymnasium, the school building became a “school living space”.
The design of the play area and the fall protection surface also take this idea into account. While other FLEXPERIENCE references score with their color design, the fall protection flooring in Würenlingen is not colorful, but shows itself in the urban design. Thanks to the medium gray chosen for the top layer, the play area completely takes up the design of the surrounding buildings and the new building that has been created and fits perfectly into the overall ensemble of the newly designed school grounds.
Various systems were installed on the 76 m² fall protection area due to the different fall heights. In addition to the optical harmony, it guarantees carefree and safe play at a height of up to three meters.
Complemented by the unusual play equipment made of metal, an extraordinarily futuristic playground was created that underlines the creative potential and versatility of the fall protection coverings used.
FLEXPERIENCE offers some special features that distinguish this innovation from conventional fall protection floor coverings.
The novelty of this system is the special base layer granule developed and manufactured only for this purpose. For the base layer of a FLEXPERIENCE fall protection system, only EPDM rubber granules are used, which are 100% virgin material.
The granule is foamed using the exclusive “Swiss Cheese Principle”. This unique technology creates small air pockets, which lead to particularly soft and cushioning surfaces.
Thanks to the materials used, the system is absolutely harmless in terms of toxicology, environmental and human compatibility. This is another major difference to some systems that use recycled granules from used tires.
With FLEXPERIENCE, the customer not only receives individual components, but also all the materials required to build a fall protection surface: base layer granule, colored EPDM granule for the top layer and the binding agent that holds everything together. He also receives installation instructions.
This has the advantage that all the necessary tests and certifications have already been carried out. This saves effort and costs and gives the client the certainty of installing a fully tested, coordinated and safe fall protection system.
FLEXPERIENCE is a globally available and licensed system that is sold and professionally installed by specially qualified regional license partners. That means competence from production to handover.
FLEXPERIENCE fall protection floor coverings meet the highest requirements in terms of fall protection and environmental compatibility.
FLEXPERIENCE was developed to ensure maximum safety in children’s playgrounds. The two-layer fall protection system is the result of more than 50 years of experience in the manufacture and research of rubber granules. The fall protection floor coverings meet the highest requirements for fall protection and environmental compatibility.
Thanks to the environmentally friendly components made from 100% virgin material and the innovative SCP technology with which the base layer granule is foamed, the FLEXPERIENCE fall protection flooring corresponds to the spirit of the times.
And in addition to sustainability, this expects a soft and safe landing – and not just “they always come down.
You may have more of this.
