New, refinished, reinstall, or corrective, we can meet all your needs.
After years of field work we've noticed that nearly 9 out of 10 stands have some type of installation issue. While these issues differ, they can lead to a number or problems that include:
Equipment not functioning properly.
The athlete being cast to one side, forward, or backwards on takeoff.
The board significantly jumping side to side while bouncing.
Premature diving board failure.
Stands that don't meet height tolerances.
Deck anchors that become loose.
Fulcrum wheels that roll off rubber channels.
Diving boards that hit/rub guardrail arms.
This can happen when the front and rear of the stand are not installed square to one another.
At the very least this will result in damage to both the springboard and the stand. Worst case it causes the board to break and someone to get hurt.
Due to incorrect anchor method, anchor size, material used, or simply lack of attention to detail.
This can damage the stand and create a serious safety issue for those on and around the equipment.
It's not always about safety!
There are plenty of other great reasons to make sure your equipment is installed correctly.
Equipment must meet the required height specification for competition and it should be level for proper operation.
Stand needed to be shimmed to proper height.
We see this one all the time when a stand was installed prior to the availability of the Model B maxiflex board or for those that were installed to fit a standard non-competition duraflex board.
This configuration will not allow the fulcrum to be utilized fully. On one end it will fall off the rubber channels and damage the equipment and on the other end it will not go back as far as the athletes needs.
