The 16' Duraflex is used for recreational diving in commercial pools such as City pools, YMCA pools and other pools that conform to U.S.A. Diving/FINA minimums (or better) regarding depths of water underneath and out ahead of the diving board. Also the pool must meet the U.S. Diving minimums for distance between board and side of pool, distance between 2 boards, and height clearance in indoor pools. Find U.S.A. Diving/FINA dimensions listed in our FAQ section.
The 16' Duraflex is basically a one piece ribbed extrusion of aluminum alloy 6070-T6, heat treated for a yield strength of 50,000 psi. It has a torsion-box extrusion, an anchor angle, and tip end cap riveted to the basic section. It is tapered from the fulcrum area to the diving tip.
The board is coated in aqua-colored thermal-curing epoxy resin. The top surface is finished with a laminate of flint silica and alumina, between coats of epoxy to effect a slip-resistant surface. The diving board is to be bolted to the diving board stand by 2 carriage bolts 5/8" diameter. If the stand is a Durafirm stand, use our stainless steel board bolts, part # SF122 5/8" x 3 1/2". The underside ribs of the board are protected from direct contact with our metal fulcrum by rubber channels (8) attached to the board with epoxy adhesive.
