    We see a variety of facilities, each with their own unique designs and configurations. Over our 35 years in the athletic infrastructure business, we have seen a number of jobs that have called upon our strength as a custom designer and installer across many of our product lines. Our custom padding department’s products are used in educational, athletic and health facilities of all shapes and sizes. Our bleachers department is no different, as we continue to build innovative structures to seat fans and spectators.

    Basketball systems can appear to be quite cut and dry with regards to installation and product specifications, but with the development and renovation of so many facilities, we are continually challenged to design new solutions for our ceiling-suspended basketball nets.

    We were recently contacted by Life Time Athletic to configure a custom design for their newly constructed facility. They chose to install a couple of our ceiling-suspended, fixed and wall-braced basketball backstops for future use, but had a unique ceiling design which put our team’s knowledge to the test.

    With this particular facility, a standard open web steel joist (OWSJ) was unavailable for use as a mounting platform.   The roof structure in their facility was constructed using reinforced precast concrete tee beams, presenting a slightly different configuration than what we traditionally see.

    In situations like this, we design custom attachments to structures such as concrete beams, wood beams and trusses, always ensuring that they have been built to withstand the necessary loads.


    Over the years, we have built a solid foundation by working closely with every single client until a suitable solution has been defined, no matter what the product or complex configuration. Our skilled team members each represent a different function in our organization and are considered the best in the business at what they do. From concept to design to installation, we are with you every step of the way.
