The most important part of Post High posts is the mats.
Throughout all our testing we identified this as being the most critical part of the setup and use of the posts.
The keys points we wanted to target included:
• Mats absorbing the force of the posts impact through ball and wind
• Weight for kids to hold in their backpack
• How it’s handled
Finding the right material was the first step. Silicone and recyclable rubber was used during our prototyping stages. It was determined that recyclable rubber delivered firmness for the raised part of the mat, adding excellent support for the posts whilst at the same time absorbing impact.
