Meeting Your “Goals”: Discovering the Specifics of Glass Basketball Backboards

Posted by Matt Roberts

Jan 18, 2013 2:01:00 PM

Selecting the right basketball goal can be a slam-dunk if you know what you are looking for before you start shopping. It's also helpful to know what options are available when putting together a complete package for your basketball facility.

Kentucky basketball equipmentThe most widely used basketball goal in the industry for indoor basketball is the center strut rectangular glass backboard. This type of a goal is mounted to the ceiling in the center of the goal with a 3 or 4-point support attachment. Ceilings with heights from 25-60 feet can be accommodated with this goal. Since its inception in the 1950s, the center strut backboard has been improved upon and made more strong and durable over the years. It is constructed with a tubular steel brace and one-half inch tempered glass. The steel mounted plate on the support attachment creates incredible backboard strength and prevents backboard damage. This goal is made for all types of sporting audiences including, elementary, high school, college, church and recreational players. Generally, this 72x42 inch goal weighs approximately 240 pounds. 

To add to the aesthetically pleasing look of the center strut backboard, the addition of LED lights can magnify the experience of your sporting event. LED lights are neatly contained and mounted inside the backboard perimeter. The lights are designed cleanly so that they do not block the view from behind the goal or interfere with play.

These lights are used in conjunction with a light synchronizer that connects the LED lights to the facility shot clock, main scoreboard and power supplies. Lights turn off and on with a signal sent from the scoreboard or shot clock to indicate when each period of playing time ends. They also illuminate when the game clock display is zero or when the end of game horn or the shot clock horn sounds. These timing system enhancers are also helpful to officials who can more easily determine validity of last minute shots at the buzzer.

Having a state-of-the-art basketball goal can certainly enhance the overall experience of your school fans, as they can be more visually involved in the specific timing of the game. If you want to know whether these basketball backboard items will meet your school’s needs contact Toadvine, your sporting equipment provider for Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, and Ohio.

Porter’s Powr-Rib II VolleyballFor those of you looking for a new volleyball system, Porter’s Powr-Rib II Volleyball system is the ultimate indoor system. This system is designed for its strength and ease of set up, and the best part is, it comes at a competitive price. This system has all of the features you need to play competition volleyball, including:

  • Revolutionary design. The Powr-Rib II gets its name from its design. The volleyball end standards are constructed of high strength, lightweight aluminum extrusion which reduces the weight of the system incredibly. This allows for the ease of installation by the end user. Two reinforcing ribs are centered throughout the entire length of the uprights to increase strength and durability. The top and bottoms of the up rights are fitted with custom molded caps to protect the finish of the floor.
  • Quick-release tension straps. This helps to keep the cable from fraying and kinking, by not having to wrap around the winch drum. The functional, multi-sport use and the sliding collar allow for this system to be used in all men’s, women’s, and junior USVBA competition-height settings. This system can go further with its ability to also be converted into a tennis net system.
  • Height adjustment lock and net height markings. Collar instantly locks into place using a pressure lock T-handle which provides a positive locking feature at any height on the upright. The Powr-Winch net tension system is a positive disc brake release device which provides the most durable, safe, and simple net attachment system available.

Porter AthleticsPorter Athletic has achieved GREENGUARD Children & School Certification on their entire line of wall pads and divider curtains. The GREENGUARD Children & School Certification is among the toughest emissions standards in the world. It requires products to be tested annually and monitored quarterly for over 10,000 different chemicals.

GREENGUARD Certified products are important in athletic facilities because of the extensive time children spend in these facilities for sports and recreational activities. Children are more susceptible to hazardous chemicals in products than adults. The GREENGUARD Certification allows for a safe playing environment for children who are in the developmental stages of their life.

To learn more about what it means to be GREENGUARD certified, or to learn more about the certification itself, visit the website.

To see a full lineup of the GREENGUARD products offered by Porter, please call Toadvine at 502-241-6010 or check out our website to see how we can help to make the environment safe and reliable for the children of tomorrow.
