When taking measurements, think about where you are hanging the pad. You may need to install the wall pads above a floor mat or baseboard. To indicate where each obstacle is located at on the wall, always face the wall head on and start from the left. The bottom of the pad is called the “baseline," measure from the baseline on upward.

Replacing Existing Wall Pads
If your gym is ready for an update, it is crucial to give the wall measurements and not the existing pad measurements. The outside of the pad is larger than the wall due to the thickness of the foam. In the photo right is an example of an i-beam. The beam is 8 inches wide and the pad is 2” thick. The outside measurements of the pad is 12 inches (2 inches for the left side and 2” inches for the right side.)
