Flexible dasher board FlexBoard PPS: "Player Protection System"

So-called flexible board systems are safer and more flexible than traditional boards, and they cushion the effect of robust body checks.

Flexibility for injury prevention

Engo was one of the first manufacturers to recognize the potential of flexible dasher boards to reduce the risk of injury. In collaboration with the technical university of Dresden, we developed the high-quality model Engo FlexBoard PPS. Because of its special material and structure, it absorbs the major part of the impact when players collide into it.

Player Protection System

PPS stands for Player Protection System, because flexible board systems are able to absorb the loading of a player at impact and to reduce the risk of injuries. At Engo, flexibility depends on a support post made of a special plastic-based composite that is reinforced with fiberglass. What is unique about this product is the combination of a strong lower aluminum base, and a flexible, bendable upper part. They are the core components that together make up this incomparable board. A soft, polymer handrail further adds to the injury prevention factor; especially against serious head injuries.
