1050D Ballistic Nylon
Our ballistic product line is uniquely constructed and domestically sourced. The custom-coated 1050D ballistic nylon is thoroughly tested against other materials and is sure to deliver the highest quality water and stain-proof system. ASTM testing results showed that 1050D Nylon’s strength is nearly doubled compared to 18oz vinyl. And, when stacked up against other widely used vinyl padding materials, our fabric is one of the only to include a top coating of durable water repellant (DWR) and a heavily coated fabric backing that ensures a high resistance to tears, abrasion, and punctures, all while trapping chalk to keep your facility MUCH cleaner.
The envelope is our most durable and versatile padding system. By fully enclosing both the top and bottom of the foam in our bomb-proof ballistics nylon material, we’re able to create a highly water-resistant, encapsulated system with easy adjustability. The envelope system is comprised of large individual sections, generally up to 400 sq. ft. each, that tie in together with burly hook and loop strips. The sections can be removed easily for events (freeing up floorspace), repairs/replacement, and adjustment.
Our tarp system provides a continuous landing surface that is both durable and affordable. This is achieved by seam gluing the entire foam layer, then encasing the top and sides in a ballistic nylon tarp. While this system is not as comprehensively covered as our envelope system, the foam is well protected and secured on all sides. Vertical Solution's proprietary method for securing the foam allows for easy adjustability as the shell material stretches (thus eliminating unsightly wrinkles in the pad surface).
High Density Matrix Awesomeness
The foams utilized by Habit and Vertical Solutions don’t compromised when it comes to thickness and firmness – we have found the perfect balance. All foam is exclusively sourced from North American manufacturers and meet the high standards set by our research and development team. Each system is custom designed to best suit your facilities specifications for wall height and fall zone coverage. Foam padding can be installed in either a multi-layer or single-layer system, and each system is typically installed using our signature solid block construction. Custom layering can be requested.
Quadruple Stitched and Hidden for years of action
With over a decade of experience in crash pad and sewn manufacturing experience, we have perfected the method for producing high-strength, welded seams that are the strongest on the market today. We do this by utilizing redundant stitching features that are well-hidden from exterior elements like chalk and climbing shoes. Our team focuses on identifying innovative methods and testing new materials to ensure Habit is at the forefront of impact system design.
Your brand deserves the right colors
One of Habit Flooring fabrics' best features is the ability to customize pad colors. Beyond several standard base colors, such as cardinal red, charcoal, black, and royal blue, we have dozens more personalized colors to choose from. We encourage clients to match their flooring system with their brand identity to significantly rise above the competition and impress customers.
After contacting us, we'll discuss the flooring system and provide recommendations for the options that will best suit your needs. If a sketch or design is not available, one of our designers can travel to your location to take a precise 3D scan of your entire facility. This technology allows us to design an accurate model for approval and ensures one of the most accurate fitting systems available.
Once the 3D model is made, and the final pad design is approved, it's sent into production at our Salt Lake City, Utah sewing facility. Producing our products in-house allows us to maintain a high level of quality and offer a genuinely custom-made product.
Once your system is produced, it will be shipped and assembled onsite with the help of our skilled installation team. Specialty cutting and gluing equipment are used to get a perfect fit with your new Habit Flooring system.
Our gym has very specific constraints and requirements for flooring. The tight areas created by our bouldering walls and mezzanine railing create unusual shapes and sizes of pads, and they all see a TON of foot traffic. Vertical Solutions came in, quickly came up with a design and drawings, and delivered a system on-time and on-budget. I couldn’t have asked for a more simple process.
