The Duraflex tapered aluminum spring board is the best diving board ever produced and has been used exclusively in all major diving events world wide since 1958. The standard Duraflex board is a single taper from tip to fulcrum and then maintains the thicker section from fulcrum to butt. (The Maxiflex has a machine taper from tip to fulcrum and fulcrum to anchor, providing greater board action). Dimensions: 19-5/8 inches wide.
The 16 foot 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.
The 16 foot 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 Duraflex 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 affect a slip-resistant surface. The diving board is to be bolted to the diving board stand by 2 carriage bolts 5/8 inches in diameter. (If the stand is a Durafirm stand, use 5/8 x 3-1/2 inch stainless steel board bolts, which are included. The 5-1/2 inch long plated steel board bolt is the most common size used on non-Durafirm Stands.) The underside ribs of the board are protected from direct contact with the Durafirm metal fulcrum by rubber channels (8) attached to the board with epoxy adhesive.
NOTE: Aquatic Technology does not represent that the board ordered by you meets the requirements of your pool design. You must confirm your pool design meets the current standards for this diving board prior to the installation of diving board. Failure to confirm these requirements can result in serious injury. See instructions included with the diving board.
