Basketball Court Wall Padding, Gymnasium Wall Padding
We offer high-quality gym wall mats and pads featuring digital graphics printing. This gym wall padding option for school gymnasiums features both direct screw-on or Z-Clip installation methods.
Should you need design assistance, it's provided at no extra cost. With a custom design, our professional design staff excels in helping you find the right configuration for your needs.
Why Should You Install Wall Padding?
- Injury prevention: The primary reason to install wall padding around stationary objects is to provide safety for athletes who might run into the objects. It's common to see an athlete dive or sprint off the field of play to try to retrieve a ball and pass it to a teammate. And some objects are within the field of play, such as outfield walls in baseball. Certainly, padding cannot prevent collisions between players and objects. But the padding decreases the severity of the collision, reducing injury possibilities. Just stick with high-quality gym wall pads to ensure the highest levels of safety.
- Team logos and branding: The wall pads provide a place for printing of a school or organizational logo or name. Some people may even choose to have advertising printed on the wall mats.
- Colorful designs: Let's face it - many gymnasium walls are a pretty boring. Liven up the look in the gym by showcasing the colors associated with your school or organization on the padding.
- Protecting the wall: If you're concerned about damage to a wall from repeated collisions, our wall padding provides protection. This could perhaps occur at a school gymnasium where baseball, softball or track teams use the indoor facility to practice before the weather warms enough to practice outside. And should the wall pad eventually become damaged, it's much cheaper to replace or repair our wall pads versus replacing or repairing a wall.
Where Should You Install Gym Wall Padding?
When most people think of wall mat options related to sports, they're thinking about the rectangular padding on the wall in a high school gymnasium underneath the basketball backboard and standard. However, any areas where athletes could crash into a stationary object as part of the normal course of play should have wall mats installed.
- Walls: Basketball court wall padding at the edge of a gymnasium is a common use. Some gymnasiums contain only a few sections of padding directly under the basketball backboard, while others stretch the padding along the entirety of the wall. A wall-to-wall installation represents a smart idea for gymnasiums that offer a full-size court horizontally and multiple smaller practice courts vertically that may have basketball or volleyball court boundaries close to the wall. For physical education classes, padding around the entire wall works well because of the variety of activities that may take place during class. Martial arts gyms also may want wall-to-wall covering to protect combatants who may crash into the wall.
- Doors: Should your gymnasium have doors near the field of play, we can design custom padding sizes that will fit on the door properly, allowing the door to open normally while also providing protection from collisions.
- Indoor tracks: An indoor track sprinting area can benefit from thick padding at the end of the sprinting lanes, as sprinters may not have enough room to stop themselves before striking a wall or doors.
- Portable padding: Some gymnasiums offer fold-up bleachers that allow for multiple practice courts. In this case, you may want padding solutions that are mounted to plywood that can be attached temporarily to the front of the folded up bleachers to provide protection during practice.
- Fence padding: For outdoor fences that are inside or near the field of play, we offer weather-proof padding that will fit nearly any situation. A baseball field may have chain link fencing around the perimeter of the field that needs padding, for example. Or a permanent outfield wall on a baseball field requires padding for safety.
- Pole or column padding: Our wall padding solutions include wrap-around pads that will fit around goalpost support columns on a football field or larger support columns that may be inside a building.
- Multiple use areas: You may find a stationary object not in play for one type of sport on a field moves into play for another type of sport. For example, a field that works for baseball, football and soccer may need padding in some areas for baseball that are well out of play for football and soccer. So think carefully about how your facilities will be used when considering where to place padding.
Concerns Over Buying Wall Pads
The most common concern over wall mat options involves the cost. Certainly, cost concerns are understandable for organizations and schools with tight funding, but the safety benefits of the wall pads outweigh cost concerns.
We offer extremely competitive prices on wall padding and wall mats, so please contact our customer service for the best rates on the pads and on shipping. Additionally, organizations may pay fully or partially for their padding by selling advertising and then having our digitally print advertising logos on the padding.
Some people may shy away from purchasing wall pads because they're worried about the difficulty of installation. However, our wall mat design is easy to mount safely with just a few simple tools.
Installation methods of our wall mats occur in one of two options: Lip top and bottom or Z-Clip. With both methods, you may install the brackets onto concrete blocks or wood studs in the wall.
- Lip: Lip top and bottom pads feature a 1-inch lip at the top and bottom of each wall pad that allows for a direct screw-on connection to a wall or to a 1- by 2-inch furring strip that is first attached to the wall.
- Z-Clip: Z-Clip installation features a channel type connection method where one channel connects to the pad and a receiving channel is connected to the wall. Z-Clips are to be attached to the back of the wall pad panels during installation. The wall pads are not shipped with the Z-Clips attached. Z-Clips are provided with screws for attachment. Z-Clips are pre-cut to length and the panels are pre-drilled to receive the screws.
We offer these types of installations for sturdiness of installation, while also ensuring you may remove the pads from the wall when needed for repair or replacement. (We also offer vinyl repair kits, should the vinyl on the padding become torn.) Additionally, by placing the mounting hardware completely behind the padding, the pads are safer for people who run into them.
For more information on the installation methods for both options, look through the PDF documents section on this page.
To ensure that the gym wall pads meet the needs of your particular organization or school, we offer custom logos, lettering and colors for our wall mat options. Some of the design options you should consider are as follows.
- Colors: We offers 14 different color options as a standard choice for our gym wall pads. You also may select custom colors, should our standard colors not match your school's color scheme.
- Digital printing: Our design consultants will help you create digital printing on the pads to show off your school mascot logo or lettering you want. Our digital printing process ensures the highest possible quality on the print job.
- Custom cut-outs: If the padding will be installed over a door with windows or handles or around an electrical outlet, custom cutouts for the pads are available. Just give us the measurements and locations of the obstacles the pads need to fit around, and we'll design the pads with cut-outs that fit perfectly after installation.
