Stage Pads

Stage Pads

Stage padding from SportsGraphics is designed to match the pads on the opposite end of your gym, ensuring the continuity of your branding efforts. The pads are custom fit to the height of your stage and can be hinged for easy access to storage under the stage, or permanently attached to the stage.

SportsGraphics boasts a digital printing process that will impress you, whether you want school logos or sponsor advertisements on your padding. Durable, UV curable inks let us print your artwork directly onto the vinyl fabric. You will get a brilliant image that doesn't peel or tear like a decal. Our designers can take an existing design or create something that will amaze you. All printing is done in-house, under the same roof that manufactures your pads.

Our experience with SportsGraphics was fantastic. We were continually in touch and they did everything possible to make sure they got our logo and colors right. The workmanship of their product is excellent and very durable. It was nice to work with such a professional company that could still add a personal touch.

Stage Padding Questions & Answers

How Long Have You Been In Business?

How Do Stage Pads Work?

Our stage padding can be installed to best fit your facility's needs. They can be installed in 3 different ways:

  1. The standard installation method is with hinges. This allows a permanent attachment with easy access to under the stage storage.
  2. If there is no storage under the stage, the pads can be installed with flat brackets (similar in shape & size to a hinge) or directly through the front of the pad like the Ulta-Mat.
  3. Velcro attachment can be used but is not recommended because of the following reasons:
    1. Durability - Velcro will wear out.
    2. Safety - A player could slide into the bottom of the pad causing the Velcro to pop loose and potentially fall on the athlete.
    3. Removability - Some people like to remove the stage padding away for special events (plays, concerts, graduations, etc.). The more times your move your stage padding, the greater chance you have of damaging them.
Are The Pads Easy To Install?

Yes. All of the hardware and installation instructions are included with your order--no extra or hidden charges. They simply screw right into the wall, with indicators as to where the hardware is placed.

If I Wanted To Remove My Stage Pad For A Special Event, What Are My Options?

There are a couple of different ways you can remove your stage pad:

  1. Pop the pin off the hinge; similar to removing a door in your house.
  2. If your stage has a wood floor, backing out the screws a couple of times will strip out the hole. SportsGraphics can supply on request a product called Woodserts to prevent this problem. Woodserts are a machined metal insert that installs flush into the wood floor and allows the hinge to be attached using a bolt. The stage pad can then be taken on and off as many times as needed without the worry of ruining the wood floor.
How Thick Are The Pads?

Standard wall pads are made with 7/16" OSB and a 1/2" wood backer for a total of 2-1/2" thick. Custom foam thicknesses are available upon request.

If Necessary, Do You Do Cutouts For Outlets?

Every job is custom-made to fit your facility. If cutouts are needed, we can do them for a small fee.

Can You Use Our Custom Logo?

Yes. We can use your logo, or you can choose from SportsGraphics' library of over 700+ logos.
