Why a Retrofit Slide?
We have been restoring Aquatic Play Structures for years. In our process, we disassemble the structure piece-by-piece, haul it all back to our 15,000 square foot restoration facility, rebuild and restore the components, haul it all back, and finally reinstall it. After bringing an Aquatic Play Structure back to life, and making it look beautiful, it was a shame putting the old plastic SCS slides back on. Something had to change.
We developed this slide in 2017 specifically to replace the plastic slides installed on Aquatic Play Structures across the country. The now obsolete plastic slides pose several problems for waterpark operators:
- Plastic SCS Slides are designed poorly, so the ride quality is bumpy and uncomfortable.
- Plastic SCS Slides cannot be repaired or restored like fiberglass.
- Even the top industrial coating systmens will not stick to the plastic, and there is not a good system for making repairs.
- When the slides begin to crack there are no good options for keeping them in service.
- When small cracks get worse, it tends to happen suddenly, which can present a major safety hazard to riders.
The fiberglass retrofit slide is a direct replacement for the old plastic slides. The Retrofit Slide’s basic dimensions were designed to be compatible with the plastic slide’s supports and placement. The Retrofit Slide molds were CNC machined, so the dimensions are much more accurate. This means that seams line up perfectly, dramatically improving ride quality, aesthetics, and longevity of the slide.
The existing plastic slides utilized incidental water rather than having a water supply plumbed in. The new retrofit slides are installed with a small water feed so that there is water flowing through them, making them a true commercial waterslide!
This slide can be installed on Aquatic Play Structures from other manufacturers, or we can provide design and fabrication of a tower and stair system to make a freestanding feature! In some cases, the retrofit slide is installed using the existing cradles which are fastened to the pool floor. Other times, we fabricate stainless steel brackets.
Use as a replacement for the plastic slides, use as a Drop Slide, use as a Stand Alone Slide System and more!
