    Posted by Ryan Wilby

    Our custom padding department recently answered the call for another unusual and highly customized padding job.  We were approached by Crestwood High School in Peterborough, Ontario to design some padding as part of some recent renovations to the gymnasium.

    Serving as home to the Mustangs, the school began a list of renovations which included some brand-new storage units that would allow for additional athletic equipment to be stored when not in use. Because these units run along the edge of the sports court they required the installation of safety padding to protect student athletes.

    We’ve always said, our strength as a company is as good as the people with whom we work. While most might think this refers to our immediate colleagues and co-workers, for us, it goes well
    beyond that.

    We have partners. A wide network of them. They include those that work in our front office, in our manufacturing facility, our suppliers and our trusted network of dealers spanning the globe.

    As an organization, onboarding new partners of any kind is not something we take lightly. When it comes to expanding our global footprint, we carefully select those who exhibit a set of shared values on which we have built this company for the past 40 years.

    When it comes to extreme sports, skateboarding and BMX riding provide the recipe for heart-pulsing excitement and thrills for both spectators and participants.

    Naturally, in this type of environment, safety is a prime concern. No matter the skill level, the chances of a collision or crash are extremely high and for those operating these types of facilities, there are many areas that can be made safer.  

    While we are used to working with traditional sports such as hockey, football, basketball and more we also do quite a bit of work in the extreme sports realm, even working closely with many Hollywood stunt teams.

    Facilities that house extreme sports almost always require safety padding, which often comes customized, as each facility can be completely different.

    As one of New York City’s largest commuter towns, the need for a quality childcare facility in South Orange, New Jersey is something Dana Kearney noticed early on. Beginning with a babysitting service operated from her home, Kearney used her fifteen years of nursing experience to provide the best care possible for her children and the children of others in the community.

    As her business grew over the years, she outgrew her small home-based business, registered an LLC and created what is now known as Village Babies Development Center. With a spacious facility, Kearney’s business now offers not only care to children between the ages of six weeks and five years of age, but a variety of learning programs for children in each age category.

    While we do complete a large portion of projects designed solely for athletic use for municipalities, educational and private institutions, our reach is much broader than that.

    Our most recent project brought us to the state of New York where a global company was in need of some custom-designed padding solutions for use at the commercial location.  This company specializes in the engineering, design and manufacturing of high precision mechanical components, assemblies, gears and motion control solutions.  Their global reach includes some of the most recognizable names in the medical, aerospace and industrial markets.

    Netting and Pole Padding for Ottawa’s First Archery Tag Facility

    Posted by Ryan Wilby

    Sep 1, 2015 4:00:00 AM


    A new and rapidly growing sport has just touched down in Canada’s capital region as Archery Games recently opened Ottawa’s very first Archery Tag location. Archery Tag is a sport that resembles dodge ball, but without the balls. In this intense game, participants are equipped with bows and patented foam-tipped arrows.

    Two teams are separated by a ‘safe zone’ and are equipped with specialized targets. Each team battles to tag opponents with their arrows and also knock out the five discs that make up the opposing team’s target. Much like dodge ball, players are eliminated once tagged with an opposing arrow, but are eligible for return when a target spot is knocked out or when one of their teammates is able to catch an opposing team’s arrow.
