SoftSide Safety Pads are perfect for today's demanding safety fall zone applications. SoftSide is an incredibly durable, 1" to 4" thick, watertight, textured, slip-resistant covered foam padding system designed for water playground and pool use. Our safety pads are custom built to suit your
specific needs and may be owner installed.
Modern aquatic facilities require CPSC tested safety padding in zones where special fall protection is required. Designers typically install padding systems in fall zones surrounding play structures, diving boards, at the run out or base of water slides, and beneath or around other water play aquatic features.
Available texture options include: slip-resistant, extra slip-resistant or smooth surface material depending upon the design application. Designers seeking fall protection generally determine thickness selection by comparing the platform height of the play area or activity feature with the independent CPSC Guideline Head Form fall height test data (available upon request). The SoftSide Safety Pad System employs the same installation concept, proven details and materials originally developed for use with the RenoSys PVC Pool Shell. Secure installation techniques involve a combination of underwater compatible caulking, mechanical fasteners along with fully fused welding of all PVC seams. Life expectancy of a RenoSys pad is dependent upon proper maintenance and the amount of facility usage. Normal installation is warranted to comply with the provided test data for a period of two years with a foam life expectancy of five to 15 years. It is the responsibility of the owner to make certain adequate fall protection is provided after two years.


  • Durable - Covered with a thick membrane of tough PVC and is warranted for two years.
  • Watertight - Totally watertight for underwater or outdoor applications.
  • Slip-Resistant - Surface PVC material is highly slip-resistant, even when wet.
  • Colorfast - SoftSide maintains its attractive color.
  • Versatile - SoftSide can be placed in fall zones or wherever extra safety and comfort is desired.
  • UV Stabilized - Maximum UV inhibitors are incorporated during the manufacturing process.
  • Algae and Fungus Resistant - Biocides are formulated into the foam and PVC material.
  • Low Maintenance - SoftSide can be mopped, pressure-washed or sponge-cleaned.
  • Resilient - Passes all CPSC-ASTM 1292 tests for impact attenuation to drop heights of 12'.
  • Hygienic - Because SoftSide does not allow liquids or solid matter to pass through, the padding can be maintained in a hygienic manner through topical applications of biocides or through proper pool water chemistry.
