Above ground" pit, with a platform and wooden guard rail.
This type of pit avoids the need for masonry work.
Provides all the advantages of a GYMNOVA pit (easy exit, visible landing area, hygienic, safe, reduced fire risks), with an advanced design and choice of products.
This pit provides real cushioning for landings, far superior to the technique used for high jump landing (foam lattice).
1- Cover fabric: stretch jersey, washable, class M1 fire rated.
2- Moulded PVC edge holds down jersey cover. Removable to make it easier to dismantle and tighten the cover.
3- Foam safety mat: very soft, shock absorbent polyurethane foam, thickness 20 cm (shock absorption phase 1).
4- Protective interface: distributes loads at pit edges, protects foam from concrete.
5- Interlocking solid cellular foam sections: the middle safety mat absorbs impact (shock absorption phase 2), and the interface support mat completes shock absorption by cancelling out the rebound effect (shock absorption phase 3).
6- Side maintenance block - Stability: whole unit is set in to restore appearance after landing.
7- Spring compensator - Adjustment: maintains the volume of the pit by reinforcing the landing areas which receive most stress.
8- Grating: covers the whole pit area. Isolates foam from the ground and allows complete ventilation.
