4-1/2" OD galvanized-steel post Choose rectangular backboard: 60"W x 42"H graffiti-resistant steel, 54"W x 39"H powder-coated aluminum, or 54"W x 42"H clear unbreakable polycarbonate Ultimate™ double-rim, direct-mount goal with no-fail net-lock system and nylon net 4' setback Truck delivery In-Ground Installation. Bent-post systems require in-ground installation within a concrete base footing, a project usually undertaken by maintenance staff or professional installers. Typically, a 12" dia x 3-4' deep hole is dug, then filled with concrete; the post is placed into the wet concrete, which must then be allowed to cure for a week before the backboard and goal are attached.
Which bent-post system is right for me?
3-1/2" Post: Perfect for light-institutional use. 3' setback.
4-1/2" Post: More durable for continuous institutional use. 4' setback.
The setback (or rununder) is the distance from the post to the backboard, usually ranging from 3' to 4'. Longer setbacks increase player safety by reducing the risk of running into the post, but they also require more space for installation; shorter setbacks are best suited for smaller courts.
|Rim & Board.|
Single rims are best for light institutional use with no player-rim contact. Double rims are stronger and more durable for heavy use and dunking. Backboards are available in durable steel; lightweight and rustproof aluminum; or the glass-like feel of clear, unbreakable polycarbonate. Rectangular backboards offer the look and size of official indoor boards, while fan-shaped backboards are more compact for side or smaller courts.
