Plastics for safe and user-friendly Skiing and water skiing facilities
In wake parks, snow parks and water skiing facilities, users on sliders, kickers and boxes take things right to the limit. Enjoyment must go hand in hand with safety, though. Designers need to build in features that are demanding, yet at the same time absolutely safe. Alongside a safe design without protruding edges and gaps, it is the surface in particular that is crucial. It must have very good slide properties, but not cause any stick-slip effects. We offer materials that are designed specifically for these requirements. They offer excellent slide properties and are resistant to wear and weathering, enabling you to design safe, long-lasting and user-friendly obstacles.
Great enjoyment thanks to excellent slide properties
No stick slip effects
Almost no water absorption
Easy processing allows features in many different forms
Suitable for outdoor use thanks to UV and weathering resistance
Typical areas of application
Water skiing facilities
Obstacles for wake parks
Thanks to its good slide properties, sliders, kickers and boxes made of Polystone® G (PE-HD) offer users huge levels of enjoyment, while the good resistance to wear and weathering mean they require little maintenance and are long-lasting. More information about Polystone® G (PE-HD)
Features for snow parks
Boxes and rail elements made of Polystone® G (PE-HD) for snow parks have excellent slide properties while at the same time being very resistant to wear and weathering, even at temperatures below zero. More information about Polystone® G (PE-HD)
Water ski ramps made of Polystone®
The surfaces of the water ski ramp known as "Big Blue" on the leisure lake at Schloss Dankern, Haren, are made from Röchling's Polystone® material. The material offers outstanding slide properties and is extremely abrasion resistant, giving jumpers ideal conditions for new personal bests.
Arrange technical advice
The performance and reliability of materials used for skiing and water skiing facilities are influenced by a variety of factors. These factors must be taken into account in order to select the right materials. Examples:
External influences such as UV radiation and contact with water and snow
Temperatures of use
