Looking after your plastic show jumps and fillers. Plastic show jumps, poles and fillers are very hard wearing and easy to maintain. However, there are still things that you can do to ensure that they remain in good condition for as long as possible.
How to look after your poles
To get the best from your plastic poles keep out of direct sunlight and store flat after use. Do not stand them up against a building for example, as plastic can warp in the heat. Our wood filled poles are made using a natural wood core, please allow for movement as the material can absorb moisture when damp and during dry months could be also drying out.
You may see some fading on colours if left outside in sunlight such as red, pink, brown for example. We do not recommend using Jumping poles as trotting poles, but this is entirely your own decision.
How to look after your wings:
To get the best from your plastic jump wings keep them out of direct sunlight. You will get some fading on some colours when left outside red, pink, brown for example. You can clean down your wings with hot water, detergent, a sponge and good old-fashioned elbow grease! We do not recommend using a pressure washer on fillers and wings with graphic designs on.
You will notice your moulded jump blocks MAY have a bung in them (not always). For example, the Sloping Multi Jump blocks, Ulti Multi, and Parallel Blocks often do, this is a finishing bung only and is not to be removed, unless you requier a little base weight by adding a small amound of sand. On the other hand, our 11-Cup Wings DO have a removable bung for you, if required, to add an extra base weight in the form of sand, but not water. By adding water you may damage your moulded products if left out in the cold frosty winters as water expands in the cold causing the plastic to crack.
Planks, Fillers, Wings and any items with graphics:
Any fillers or items with graphics on, items such as the tower markers with digits on for example, after each use ensure the faces are clean of debris especially sand as if you stack the tower markers otherwise this can scratch the digits, Freshly adhered graphics to our fillers will require a minimum of 48 hours to ensure adhesion before use.
