Diving Board Buying Guide

 

New Diving Board Installations – OR – Replacement Diving Board Bases and/or Boards

 

New Diving Board Installations

Step 1 – Pick your installation set up type: When you are selecting a new diving board, you have two different options to choose from: passive and active.  Passive Installations - when the spring of the board is derived from the BOARD only and does not have any separate springs. Active Installations - this is a much more bouncy system. There is normally a separate spring assembly for an active system.

 

Step 2 – Pick the board length. Cross your board/base options with your NPSI Rating. The NPSI Rating is used as a safety guide and will tell you the board length options that you can use. For information on how to calculate your NSPI rating, click here.
