Re: GHD Height?

Are you wanting to know how high off the floor the pad is, or at what height off the floor the foot hold posts are? Or perhaps even what relation the height of the foot holds are to the pad?

Re: GHD Height?

33"

25" for the vertical support + an 8" radius semi-circle pad = 33"

I don't know if this is "official," but this is the measurement I got from the GHD at my local affiliate.

Re: GHD Height?

Actually, now that I look back at my notes, the pad is not a true semi-circle. It's 8" high and 15.5" deep.

Re: GHD Height?

My modified Pro Maxima GHD is 38" to the top of the pad, and a tick over 32" to the base of the pad (call it 32 and a 1/16th inches).

Re: GHD Height?

This thread (wfs) explains that another DIY builder made his pads by building a wood frame, covering them with polyurethane foam sheets, and vinyl fabric. They look pretty professional. He gives dimensions for the frame in post #10.
