Climb Higher With Confidence Using Bouldering Crash Pads
Closed-cell top layers in crash pads are imperative because of the stability they provide in a landing, combined with the dissipation of energy from the fall. That stability of closed-cell foam and foam rubber is important because many falls are controlled falls. ...
Beneath the pad’s top layer is the section that provides the majority of a pad’s thickness as well as the cushion that provides safety from higher falls. Open-cell cushion foam making up the main body of the crash pad is a necessity, not only for protection when attempting climbs to greater heights, but also for the cushion it provides in unplanned, out of control falls from any height. The firmness of closed-cell foam provides stability, but on its own, it may not be enough to prevent injury in an unplanned fall. The thicker open-cell foam padding in the interior of a bouldering mat is what handles heavy impacts and makes the difference between waking up sore and possibly waking up in the hospital.
To handle falling, full-body weight in repetition, the open-cell interior must be firm enough to support that weight while still having the yield to provide the cushioning it is designed for. Old foam, used foam or even new foam that isn’t strong enough can open the possibility of bottoming out, which carries the same consequence of not having any pad, since you are falling through the cushion to the first resistive surface; i.e.: the ground. ...
