  • SoftLink Safety Barriers were specifically developed to protect athletes and spectators based on the same innovative design as ProLink Barriers, but in a softer material for a cushioned landing
  • SoftLink Safety Barriers are designed to be forgiving, absorb energy and slow momentum when competitors hit them, thus minimizing the severity of injuries, shielding spectators and reducing damage to sports equipment
  • SoftLink’s unique linking system keeps the barriers from scattering when hit and anchored pins provide additional stabilization
  • SoftLink is one of the only barrier systems that offers ballast modification for varying levels of resistance, when filled with water or sand, to provide optimum protection at every location
  • SoftLink Barriers offer bright colors and directional signage options, which help raise visibility in key areas, further increasing protection

Why ISS SoftLink Safety Barriers make financial sense.

  • SoftLink Barriers are one of the lowest cost systems available today—About 1/3 of the cost of foam stopping boards
  • SoftLink Barriers can raise safety ratings, which may lower insurance premiums
  • ProLink Barriers are tough enough to last from event to event, substantially reducing replacement costs
  • SoftLink is the only barrier system that can be arranged in literally any configuration, including curves and 90-degree angles for maximum flexibility of use
  • Extremely lightweight, with plug-and-play connections, SoftLink is the easiest system to assemble or remove with minimal manpower—just 2 workers can do the job—saving time and labor
  • SoftLink barriers are also stackable to almost any height for efficient storage and transport, and are designed to accommodate a fork-lift if needed
  • Multi Task Gyms

  • Made from stronger, thicker composite plastic (in some cases twice as thick as competitors), with exclusive impact ridges to reinforce structural integrity and a modifiable ballast system that also increases durability, SoftLink Barriers are tough enough to last, substantially reducing replacement costs
  • SoftLink Barriers are specifically designed to support advertising and sponsorship banners, which generates additional income
  • SoftLink Barriers can be customized with graphics, embedded logos, and come in a full range of color combinations to coordinate with facility branding, so they appear cleaner, more up-to-date and attractive on camera

Beyond the fact that the ISS Barriers take as little as 5 minutes to install, the other big reason I chose them was the cost. Unlike large universities, budgets here are tight and with ISS we were able to afford a better solution for less than half the cost. They get hit all the time—Every throw, every day! These guys are big and throw far, but the barriers always stop the shot. After 2 seasons, they’re holding up great and I feel confident they’ll last us for years.

As the largest Calvary School in America with the oldest Rough Riding Program, we needed to create a 50’ Liberty Ring that was safe for both the students and horses who perform. KISS Barriers suit our purposes well. If kids fall on them, they don’t get hurt, and they are safe for the horses; no openings that catch. The barriers are easy to move—One team can set them up and tear them down in 5 minutes. After almost 4 years, the KISS Barriers are holding up good.

We love the barriers as an efficient and effective safety measure to keep throwing implements inside the competition area. Our needs require us to set up and break down the barriers every practice session and this is done easily and quickly with as few as 3 people.
