30" Deluxe Starting Platforms for
Commercial Swimming Pools
(Varsity Pre-Assembled Starting Blocks, Anchors Included)
The 30" Deluxe Starting
Platform is sloped at 10º with a slip-resistant top surface, slip-resistant
step, and anchors. Three warning labels are included. Lane numbers are optional
(please contact us for details). The platform is made of 1.90" OD × .065" wall
Type 316L stainless steel tubing. Platform top surface is 22" × 22". Please
state deck-to-water level dimension when ordering.
This starting platform is intended to comply with current
FINA, USA Swimming, NCAA and NFHS requirements. Its extended height can reach the maximum
allowable by these governing bodies and can result in a faster facility. Note that it may
be desirable to utilize the 18-inch Deluxe Low Profile Starting Platform for more
strenuous training while reserving this 30-inch Deluxe Starting Platform for actual
competition. With the additional (approximately) 12-inch (304.8mm) height, faster overall
times may result. Because of the unique anchoring system, this change-out can be
accomplished rapidly and with ease.
The structural frame of the 30-inch Deluxe Starting Platform is of
polished, 1.9-inch (48 3mm) Outer Diameter (OD), 316L stainless steel with a wall
thickness of .065-inch (1.7mm) and bends (nominally) on a 6-inch (152.4mm) radius. The
platform is equipped with one (1) stainless steel Tread affixed to the frame at a 15°
degree angle for ease in mounting. The 304 stainless steel polished Elite Tread is
3-inch (76.2mm) in width and 20-inch (508mm) in length at the rail centerline. Strategic
bends of the heavy-duty stainless steel provide the tread's unmatched strength.
Contrasting beauty, sure-footing and secure mounting of the Elite Tread to the frame
section is enhanced by a replaceable, black non-skid, Cool-Touch tread insert at the
top and caps at either end of the tread.
The platform mounts to the pool deck by engaging the Starting Platform Uni-mount Anchoring
System. This quick change system consists of two (2) chrome-plated brass Flush Anchors
(included) which engage the chrome-plated brass Anchor Plate. The starting platform mounts
directly to the anchor plate by means of two (included) anchor bolts. In addition to
permitting the rapid change of platforms (for example from a 30-inch (762mm) to an 18-inch
(457.2mm) platform), this system also allows removal of the anchor plates to present an
The backstroke bar is of polished, 1-inch (25.4mm) Outer Diameter (OD), 316L stainless
steel with a wall thickness of .065-inch (1.7mm) and bends (nominally) on a 4-inch (1 01.6mm) radius. This bar attaches to the platform frame by four
stainless steel carriage bolts.
The 22.5x22.5-inch (571.5x571.5mm) platform is of laminated fir
covered and reinforced by fiberglass to which a non-slip sand coating is applied or
sure-footing. The platform attaches to the frame at a (nominal) 10° slope by four
stainless steel bolts. To insure compliance with relevant regulations, orders for A41796-1
