Project

Crash Pads for Ice Skating Speed Track

Challenges

  • Create a safe crash barrier for the skaters.

  • Display an artistic mural that would tell a story worldwide

Solution

Norseman designed and tested the foam crash barriers in association with the University of Calgary to meet the exacting standards of the highest international athletic competitors in the world.  Our foam and fabric expertise allowed us to develop a crash barrier that not only performed well repeatedly but was also beautiful and told a story. It took 3 different factories working hand-in-hand to make the composite foam layers, the covers with printed graphics and the installation of the safety barriers. 

Benefits

2010 Vancouver Olympics were used Canadian manufacturers to provide high performing, visually stunning crash barriers that served as a safety device but also as a mural during the event.
