Fixed Height Basketball Hoops and Goals For Schools and Playgrounds
Fixed height basketball goals can be a good choice for schools and playgrounds, community centers, and even some work venues. In a situation where you are planning to keep basketball as an outside sport, you want to get something that will stand up well to the wear and tear associated with multiple users on a regular basis. Here are some options for you to consider:
The Sport provides you with a quality basketball goal that won’t break your playground equipment budget. Frankly, deciding how much to spend up front for a quality product that will last is a big part of your choice. So know your options. The extension arm is fastened onto the vertical post with a couple of heavy-duty U-bolts. This product is considered a fixed height basketball goal, but the arm can be loosened and reattached at any height you like on the post. This gives you some flexibility for players of all ages.
You have the option of customizing your Sport package by selecting the backboard and rim that will fit your needs the best. Pole padding and backboard padding can be added to this product, and those are both good safety features that should be included.
When you want a heavier post but still want to keep costs at a reasonable level, the Legacy is an option worth considering. It has a 4″ x 4″ 11 gauge steel post; this makes it 50 percent heavier than other basketball goals in its class. The extension arm is made from 4″ x 4″ square tubing. This provides the unit with a 36″ extension from the backboard to the post, which is an important safety consideration. The Legacy is another unit that is considered a fixed height goal; you can adjust the height by loosening the arm from the pole and repositioning it at a different point along the post. Several basketball rims and backboards can be used with the Legacy so you can customize it to your specifications.
The Legend Jr. is a highly durable product that combines great performance with a high level of durability. This product has a pole and an extension arm that are made from 5″ x 5″ 3/16″ tubular steel. Adjust it to the level you want by placing the extension arm at the level you want along the pole. Six high tensile 5/8″ bolts are used to attach the arm to the pole, and the post is set back 52″ as a safety feature.
Another option when it comes to basketball goals for schools and playgrounds is the Legend. This product is very sturdy, with its 6″ x 6″ and 3/16″ thick steel tubing. It will stand up to even the most demanding use that basketball players can put it through. Again, you can adjust the height of the rim by moving the extension arm to a different point on the pole.
As you can see, there are several options available when it comes to fixed height basketball goals for schools and playgrounds. You don’t have to sacrifice the basketball goal’s durability to get a product you like at a good price.
