When it comes to time registration at official sports competitions, only the best is good enough. And the best in this case comes from the Swiss company Swiss Timing, which specializes in time monitoring equipment, data analysis and result displays.
OSB11 starting block
A starting block is a stable elevation on the edge of the pool, which ensures that the swimmer can start well. But the unique OSB11 starting block from OMEGA also ensures that the body of the swimmer is in the correct position for an explosive start. Tests by world-class swimmers have shown that the OSB11 starting block contributes to a faster race compared to the standard block. A starting block with Relay Break Detection (RBD) is indispensable for swimming competitions.
The lane numbering can be seen on four sides of the starting block. Of course, the OMEGA OSB11 starting block meets all official FINA competition requirements.
OSB14 starting block
Swiss Timing has developed the OMEGA OSB14 starting blocks specifically for swimming pools with less space. The narrower basis of the OSB14 means that this starting block can also be installed on a front wall. As with the OSB11, the OSB14 starting block ensures that the body of the swimmer is in the correct position for a lightning fast start. You can also opt for an OSB14 with RBD for your time registration. The starting block is 737 x 314 millimeters in size, has a height of 655 millimeters and a weight of 29 kilograms. The platform format is 740 × 520 millimeters. The lane numbering can be seen on four sides of the starting block. The OMEGA OSB14 starting block meets all official FINA competition requirements.
OSB12 starting platform
The revolutionary OMEGA OSB12 starting platform ensures that the swimmer’s body is in the correct position for a start. The platform can be mounted on almost any existing starting block. This is also an ideal solution if only the top of the starting block needs to be replaced. You can also choose RBD for your time registration at the starting platform. The platform is 740 × 520 millimeters in size. Of course, the OMEGA OSB12 starting platform with RBD meets all official FINA competition requirements. All starting blocks or platforms have a non-slip surface, an easy-grip for extra comfort and it is possible to adjust the footrest of the starting block so that every swimmer optimally can use.
