Due to the spread of COVID-19, the hygiene and safety of loose foam pits is questioned more than ever. Properly cleaning a foam pit has proven to be an impossible task, since all foam pit blocks need to be taken out and disinfected individually every day. With the current sharpening of hygiene and safety regulations, this is the right time to consider replacing your foam pit with a BigAirBag®.

The safety & hygiene of foam pits

The question regarding the safety of loose foam pits has been brought to the forefront in the past years. Loose foam pits have been necessary for gymnasts and other athletes for a number of decades as a means of absorbing impacts while training complex aerial maneuvers. Due to the fact that untreated foam pit blocks are highly flammable, fire retardants were introduced to tackle this issue. Over time foam blocks deteriorate and crumble releasing dust particles into the air. According to an open letter by Dr. Bill Sands, although fire retardants such as PentaBDEs were phased out in 2004, a number of other chemicals such as chlorinated-Tris and Firemaster 550 now used as flame retardants are also considered potentially hazardous to health. With trampoline parks opening foam pits to a wider market can the issue of flame retardants be ignored any further?

The COVID-19 Pandemic is causing the hygiene of foam pits to be questioned more than ever. Properly cleaning a foam pit has proven to be an impossible task, since all foam pit blocks need to be taken out and disinfected individually every day. With the current sharpening of hygiene and safety regulations, this is the right time to consider replacing your foam pit with an airbag to ensure a safe and healthy environment for your customers while managing the impact of COVID-19. Due to its unrivalled softness, durability and optimal hygiene the Foam Pit BigAirBag® has become the preferred way to jump safely in trampoline parks, freestyle parks and gymnasiums across the globe. In comparison to a loose foam pit, the easy exit of the Foam Pit BigAirBag® provides an increased user experience and higher throughput.
