How should I measure for padding?
A great guide to review is “How to Measure for Padding”. Some more tips are: 1. Use a soft tape measure around any round columns to get the circumference. 2. It is helpful to provide photos or drawings of odd shaped structures. 3. Don’t assume that all columns in a building may be the same size, especially in an older building. ***It is always best to double-check measurements, as custom pads are made-to-order and not returnable.
What cover material is used and what colors are available for padding?
The cover material is a 10-ounce nylon fabric. This material is rip-stop, waterproof, mold/mildew proof, durable and fade resistant. The standard vinyl colors are Red, Yellow, Black, White, Blue, Beige, Green and Gray.
How is vinyl protected from the sun?
All the vinyl in standard colors is UV coated at no additional cost!
Are reflective stripes included?
Yes - you have a choice of Reflective Red or Reflective Silver stripes, at no additional cost. Reflective stripes are 2-inch wide, OSHA approved, 3M brand reflective tape that is sewn into the pads. We can also omit the stripes, per your request.
How thick is the inner foam?
The standard thickness of the inner foam is 1/2" thick. However, inner foam thickness is available at 3/8", 3/4", or 1" thick.
How does the padded cover attach to the column or wall?
A 2" Velcro strip is sewn into the column pads. The pads wrap around the column and then Velcro into place. Per your request, grommets can be added to any pad, in 12" increments. This works well for wall pads as it allows you to hang pads on the wall.
What is the turnaround time for custom padding orders?
Typically, custom padding is shipped four weeks after the order is received. For an additional fee, a rush order can be shipped within 48 hours of when order is received.
Can I custom design a padded cover for things other than gate arms, columns and bollards?
Absolutely! YES! Email a picture or rough sketch and dimensions of what you want covered and we will give you a quote.
Can I get cushioned products with graphics / logos / lettering?
YES! Custom graphics, logos and lettering are available. Contact us for a specific quote.
How is the price of the padding determined and why isn’t it listed on the website?
Pricing is determined, mainly, by using a price per square foot formula. Other factors may affect the price, such as inner foam thickness, the addition of grommets, the addition of graphics/logos/lettering, oversized items, and rush/expedited order fees.
