GPJ Consulting Engineers were employed by the Retallack Resort to carry out a survey and re-design of the ride’s protective safety cushions.
The artificial surfing wave ride was installed approximately 6 years ago and after many years of heavy use has seen the protective foam crash pads and vinyl outer covering wear out.
GPJ Consulting Engineers visited site and took accurate dimensions of the existing installation. These were transferred to a 3d model which enabled us to design a cutting plan to allow a local contractor to fabricate the foam pads and vinyl covers.
Stainless Steel reinforcement of part of the ride was also undertaken to further extend its useful life.
