Vertical wall padding panels and post pad pole protectors that are available at the Universal Self Defence online web store are great feature for any gym, martial arts club or indoor sports facility where people are in danger of losing their balance and falling or where they may accidentally run into a wall or post. When retreating backwards in martial arts or any other indoor sport it makes all the difference when you run into foam padding instead of a solid wall or hard post. Having wall pads and post pads actually saves space because you can safely use more of the floor area and run your floor mats right up to the wall or post. Using wall pads not only for protection but also as a training aid has become very popular due to the advent of mixed martial arts having to learn how to fight against the wall of a MMA cage. The same techniques used when fighting up against a cage wall can be practice with the wall pads, only it’s a lot safer and more comfortable with wall padding. Practicing self defence and security training up against a wall pad is also extremely practical. Traditionally most martial arts mainly trained in open areas, but real life self defence situations don’t always happen in open areas, and you often have walls and pieces of furniture and other obstacles to contend with. Just like a boxer must learn to fight off the ropes in the ring, the mixed martial arts must learn how to fight off the wall, especially if they wish to compete in a MMA cage. Fighting against a wall opens up a whole new set of fighting techniques that must practice many times over to be proficient and competitive. Without a doubt wall pads are the best protection you can have so when you have long hard training sessions you will not be in danger of injury from a hard solid wall. Wall pads and post pads are also great to use near punching bags that may swing into the wall or post. It not only protects the punching bag but also the person hitting the punching bag incase they loose their balance and fall into the hard wall or post. There are many uses for wall and post padding wherever there are people being physically active and in danger of running into a wall or post, particularly when there is limited space and people are forced to use areas that are close enough to run or fall into a wall or post.

Mounting Wall Pads Wall pad panels taper on the ends so you can either Dynabolt them to the wall or use aluminum channels from building suppliers for a more professional finish, which is recommended if you need to take the panels off and on regularly. Channels or Dynabolts are not included with the wall pads. If you are not sure about the structure of your wall being able to support wall pads then you need to consult a qualified builder.

Cleaning Wall Pads & Post Pads Wall pads are very easy to keep clean. Just give them a quick sponge over with a mix of luke warm water and some quick drying anti-bacterial detergent. The vinyl covers dry off quickly if in a well ventilated area especially if you can blow a couple fans over them. If you need to dry the wall pads in big hurry just wipe them over with a couple of big beach towels. Do not soak or hose down your wall pads or leave them out in the weather because if the foam inside is allowed to get wet then it may develop a mold smell as it is hard to completely dry out the foam.
