Water Slide Landing Pads Are More Than Just Aesthetic Features
They play an important role in water park safety by reducing and preventing abrasions and impact injuries. An important consideration in choosing a landing pad is not only a pad’s ability to resist becoming a breeding ground for fungi and bacteria, but also to be safely mounted without the use of metal bolts or screws that will rust or cause injury. Nylon surface anchors, commonly referred to as bantam plugs, can crack from repeated impact, resulting in the pad loosening, shifting and potentially becoming a safety hazard.
Safer Softer Landings Above and Below the Water Line
SlidePad® and EdgePad™ were designed to replace old, unsafe landing surfaces.
SlidePad® has enhanced the safety aspects and softness of the landing surface by featuring beveled edges and a top landing surface from Life Floor, the #1 aquatic flooring in the industry. Life Floor’s proprietary Ripple texture landing surface provides a slip-resistant surface that is NSF/ANSI/CAN 50 rated and meets critical fall height requirements. EdgePad™ are the only aquatic pads that feature certified safety landing surfaces.
Drilling holes and installing bolts in the pool floor increases the probability of water leaks, surface cracks and creates a safety hazard. SlidePad® has eliminated the need to drill holes or install either landing surface with bolts! Both SlidePad® and EdgePad™ can be glued to any type of pool floor or decking surface and is guaranteed not float or shift after installation. Our landing pads are not only chlorine resistant, but also resistant to UV exposure, impervious to water and are fungistatic and hygienic.

Traditional Landing Pads vs. SlidePad®
There is no Comparison!
Commonly used landing pads are constructed of several layers of laminated foam glued together on top of a thin PVC base. The entire pad is then wrapped in a layer of vinyl pool liner material. Repeated impact results in a breakdown in the foam’s density, causing the vinyl to peel away at the edges and cracks to form.
Benefits of SlideRenu® Landing Pads
No moving parts! SlidePad® products are single units comprised of fade, resistant EVA/XLPE closed cell foam technology. The safety aspects and softness of our pads feature top landing surfaces from Life Floor, the #1 aquatic surface flooring in the industry. SlidePad® will not disintegrate, deteriorate, crack, fade and will not shift or move after being bonded to the surface.
Use at the end of slides, pool bottom and any area that requires a slip-resistant, soft, safe landing. Use below the water’s surface, indoors or outdoors. Comes with a DIY installation kit that includes adhesive, trowel and sealant.
Unlike competitor’s products, SlidePad® does NOT require external fasteners, screws or anchor bolts that compromise the safety of your guests. The Life Floor landing surface is easily cleaned and maintained and does not support microbial growth such as mold and mildew.
Airtight construction means that no maintenance is required! SlidePad® products are not only resilient to impact but chlorine resistant, UV-resistant, hygienic, fungistatic, algae resistant and slip-resistant despite repeated use.
Quick and easy installation! No bolts, screws or fasteners. Drilling into your pool’s floor to install anchor mounts isn’t necessary. SlidePad® adheres to any prepared surface using SlidePad® Adhesive™. SlidePad® will not detach and float to the surface and can be installed by your staff or one of our certified technicians. DIY removal requires no special tools.

The Most Common Landing Surface Failures
Traditional landing pads haven’t kept pace with the ever-changing demands brought about by salt, bromine and super chlorination water chemistries. Additionally, today’s interactive water features require safer and softer protective corners and landing surfaces.
“Old Technology” landing pads are made of laminated foam wrapped in a layer of vinyl pool liner material. Repeated impact causes a breakdown in foam density, causing the vinyl pool liner to peel away, exposing the foam core. The compromised surface results in water intrusion and causes the pad to shift and float.
- Fading, discoloration
- Rusting and missing bolts/fasteners
- Stress cracking in a PVC base from repeated impact
- Corner cracking that causes scrapes and water to enter into the pad
