Repair and Renovation

Athletic Equipment can be improved to meet safety codes and enhance the overall function and appearance. For basketball backstops some of the more common renovations include: new edge padding; breakway goals; height adjusters; electric winches; and wireless remotes. Gym divider curtains can be updated to meet new safety codes including Safe-Path System, an infrared motion detector that ensures that the path of your curtain is clear. Due to the many different types of gym equipment, it becomes even more important to make sure that functionality and safety are maintained continuously.
