Episcopal Academy in Newtown Square PA is a state-of-the-art K-12 prep school that needed wall padding in its sports areas to match. Mancino added 16oz impact vinyl, plywood-back panel padding to its basketball gymnasium and wrestling studios. We were able to meet specific custom needs around doors and columns and create a one of a kind bleacher safety padding system with removable wall and floor mats.
This panel meets all the latest ASTM safety standards for flame retardancy and impact attenuation. Pads include 2-inch thick, low smoke polychloroprene compound foam filler with a density of 9-lb/ cu. ft. laminated to a 7/16-inch SFI® certified responsible urea formaldehyde free recycled composite wood backer board, and covered in a 16 -oz. / sq. yd. vinyl coated polyester, CPSIA - 6P and lead compliant. This wall padding achieved a Class "A" fire retardant rating under ASTM E-84. It also has been tested to the ASTM standard 2440-04 Impact attenuation.
For over 46 years, Mancino Softwall™ Wainscot panels have added that extra margin of safety that many facilities need, from elementary schools to universities, day care centers, professional sports stadiums and arenas. Our superior wall cushioning protects active students and athletes from a wide range of potential injuries.
