With years of experience in the educational shade sector, we recognise the importance of keeping children and their equipment safe at school.

After seeing recurring images of old, rotten post pads, we decided there had to be a solution. So we teamed together to research the industry and designed a new pad.

Designed with super high strength, tear resistant, UV (ultraviolet) & FR (flame resistant) treated PVC membrane outer, and a marine grade, firm, water-resistant foam inner, our safety pads stand as sturdy as the day they're fitted, for generations to come!



PADMASTER is the ultimate in-pole safety pad and is easily our most popular choice.

This design has been specifically modeled for the inclement NZ weather, including eyelets in the base of each pad which allows for any excess water to drain through. This prevents waterlog from occurring, ensuring your pads remain attached properly and in good shape.

Built with a full-length closing flap providing complete security.

These robust pads are backed with a 2-year warranty.



From shade canopy posts to concrete pillars to poles in the school playground, there are plenty of pole hazards indoors and out that could use these safety pads.

Drainage pipes, brackets, and boxes attached to poles are all no problem at Safeguard.

The Safeguard team will customise your order to suit your requirements.



Our PADLOCK upgrade gives you the opportunity to keep your protection pads under lock and key at all times.

Designed to prevent pads being stolen or removed unnecessarily, this feature ensures the security of your pad when not supervised.

This upgrade includes a 7mm Cable wire running through the inside of the Pole Wrap, exiting through Eyelets to the Padlock.



Safeguard allows you to create your own exciting environment with your desired colour schemes and promotional wording or branding, either chosen to blend in or to stand out! Our team of experts will customise post pads of any shape and form to meet your specific needs.

Get creative with our optional printing feature and style your pads however you like! Colours, words, logos, values; the options are endless... so let your imagination run wild while you add your own definition of crazy to the environment.
