PlayMaker difference is in the details
home, we actually shoot at our own PlayMaker basketball goals (a
nice perk, btw). So the
design of each PlayMaker Hoop reflects our full attention to the
engineering and manufacturing details for the best end-user
visible basketball goal details
There are details you can see, like the full 1/2-inch thickness
of our exclusive cell cast acrylic backboards. (That's
the same thickness as standard indoor tempered glass
backboards.) Each PlayMaker acrylic backboard is fitted to a
high-strength steel frame with
no reinforcement bars in the shooting area; then it's
wrapped with a brushed aluminum outer frame.
That allows PlayMaker backboards to offer shooters superior
rebound characteristics – without the need for a steel bracing
system visible through the backboard.
The result? Rebound characteristics are consistent across the
entire face of the backboard. No dead spots, no hot spots. Just
pure play. It really does pay to practice your game on proper
basketball goal equipment.
invisible basketball goal construction
|And there's details you can't see, such as the quality of steel we use to
build our rugged basketball goals. We start with ASTM Grade B cold formed welded tubing.
It delivers a superior strength-to-weight ratio, and creates a
rock-solid shooting platform. Then we powder coat the steel for
a tough, long lasting finish that impedes rust, and lets you keep
shooting year after year after year.
safe basketball goal system
More design and engineering details include an extremely stable
base system, and a full 24-, 36-, or 48-inch overhang (depending
on model) from the face of
the steel pole to the face of the backboard. Generally, more
overhang means more player safety.
well-designed adjustable goals
One of our favorite details is the position and operation of the
height adjustment actuator on all of our adjustable basketball
• Our actuator has a grease
fitting; the actuator is positioned to shed water, helping to avoid
the rust damage that plagues many other basketball goals' actuators.
• The actuator is located far enough from the
lift arms to keep fingers and knuckles safe when raising
or lowering the backboard.
• Very easy to adjust - almost any kid
can crank it down and hoop it up!
