SoftCap - Canadian Patent Approved
SoftCap at Minsk-Arena, installed January 2010
SoftCap®, our industry-first, impact absorbing cap rail system, is now protected by Canadian Patent # 2,552,340 as well as other patents internationally.
SoftCap® is 96% more compressive than the standard High Density Polyethylene cap rail every other dasher board company in the world uses.
SoftCap® is the only safety cap rail system approved by both the National Hockey League and the Kontinental Hockey League, and is now used in 20 NHL rinks, as well an ever-growing list of KHL, NCAA, and community rinks.
Athletica Sport Systems dedicates significant time and resources to developing innovations for player safety such as SoftCap® and promises to dedicate similar energies to defending its patents and intellectual property.
