Each component of our FlameSafe wall pad is hand picked to meet the highest level of fire retardancy and durability for years of fire-resistance and shock absorbency.
The wood: We use wood that is tested not only for strength in circumstances of prolonged high temperatures but also in high moisture environments.
What makes it special for fire resistance? When our wood backing is exposed to to open flames a coating of char forms, which prevents combustion and further fire damage. The wood in every FlameSafe wall pad meets and passes ASTM E-84 for Class A fire-rated building material.
The vinyl: AK Athletics uses a specially formulated 18 oz poly tarpaulin vinyl that is lead free, phthalate free, fire rated and is anti-mildew.
We tested multiple varieties and brands of vinyl before settling on one that had the tear strength and fire resistance we know are necessary for this product.
The Glue: Our glue that binds foam to the wood backing is a non solvent, one part water based adhesive that is GREENGUARD Gold Certified.
The Foam:Delivering a foam that has both a high level of impact safety and fire resistance lead us to a soft, shock absorbent, neoprene foam that meets ASTM E-84 Class A and NFPA 286 while still offering the shock absorbency to meet ASTM F2440.
Easy installation: Just like our standard 6' tall wood backed wall pad, a 1" nailing margin on the top and bottom of each wall padding provides ample space for screws and washers to be used for attachment.

Two side corner pads and three side column pads are manufactured to the customers specification.
