|A smaller carbon footprint
A priority for Vortex is to reduce its carbon footprint of both its facilities and products. By scrutinizing the lifecycle of ground sprays, Vortex identified better practices in the manufacturing process, material choice, and assembly and packaging through Spraylink’s development. As a result, this sustainable ground spray system is composed of 100% recyclable material and reduces the overall carbon footprint of Splash pads.
Spraylink™ was designed to endure harsh weather and the wear-and-tear environments of unsupervised public spaces. The body of Spraylink™ is constructed of a specially developed unplasticized polyvinyl chloride polymer that meets Vortex’s stringent performance requirements. Spray heads are composed of ultra-high molecular weight polyurethane (UHMWPE) and are extremely resistant to abrasion and staining, a significant advantage for this ground level application. Both materials are resistant to high-impact, ultraviolet radiation, chemicals, and water absorption.
|Modularity & flexibility
When designing a Splash pad, product flexibility is important, adapting to the requirements of each space. Spraylink™ is a modular system that offers endless possibilities to configure a ground spray experience. Whether a geometric or a free-form shape, Spraylink™ can accommodate. This innovative ground spray system offers a variety of interchangeable nozzles, providing flexibility even after installation is completed. All spray heads are interchangeable to modify the water effect and easily removable for maintenance.
Play is at the core of all Vortex products and with Spraylink™ all ages and abilities are covered. With the flexibility to create various shapes and a variety of water effects, Spraylink™ elevates ground spray play value. At the perfect height for fun, young children are attracted to ground sprays and the tactile play experiences they offer. With a playful, bright blue nozzle that is smooth to the touch, Spraylink™ increases the excitement for little adventurers. Older children will be drawn by the interactive team play products that incorporate Vortex’s PodSpray™ technology.
