Our 8 ft 12 inch High Balance Beam and Mat Sets come in many fashionable colors. When purchasing a Balance Beam the most important consideration is the height of the beam. For practice you do not want anything too high until gymnast has reached the higher skilled levels. All our Beams are made with 3/4 laminated wood and wrapped with 3/8 inch foam padding. They are covered with a commercial grade synthetic suede to prevent slips. The low steel legs have a wider design and have heavy rubber grip ends for maximum stability. The Mat is constructed with 1-3/8 inch thick cross link firm foam enclosed wrapped in a durable 18 ounce vinyl cover which is fire retardant, mildew and puncture resistant. Both the Beam and Mat come with a 1 year manufacturer warranty.
