Short Track Speed Skating Crash Pads
Create custom crashpads for the short track speed skating event at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics
- Create a safe crash barrier for the skaters.

Norseman designed and tested the foam crash barriers in association with the University of Calgary to meet the exacting standards of the highest international athletic competitors in the world.
Our foam and fabric expertise allowed us to develop a crash barrier that not only performed well repeatedly but was also beautiful and told a story. It took 3 different factories working hand-in-hand to make the composite foam layers, the covers with printed graphics, and the installation of the safety barriers.
2010 Vancouver Olympics worked with Canadian manufacturers like Norseman to supply the Olympics with the gear they needed to host the games. Norseman was able to provide high-performing, visually stunning crash barriers that not only served as a functional safety device but also as a mural reinforcing the 2010 Olympic brand during the event.
