Making sports happen day in and day out in a gymnasium may be fast paced, but that doesn’t mean the whole process should be difficult. Raising and lowering the basketball backstops (along with other equipment) in a gymnasium can be effortless when you have the proper electric winch installed. To ensure the day-to-day goings-on in a gym function smoothly and properly you need to have a basketball backstop electric winch installed by Borgman Athletics.
One moment, a basketball game may be happening in a gymnasium. The next, there could be an art show. With so much happening in a gymnasium in one day, having basketball backstops move up and down properly and in a safe manner should be a top priority of anyone involved. And as some basketball backstops can weigh up to 1,000 pounds, having them properly secured is equally as important. That’s why we offer electric winch installation and replacement as a part of our services.
Whether it is a professional athletic facility, a rec center, a university gymnasium or any other facility, we can install and replace basketball backstop electric winches. Older facilities may have the manual crank winch, which is no longer a viable option for athletic equipment in today’s high demand sports world. Manual crank winches do not have limit switches like their electric counterparts do. These limit switches ensure that the backstop unit comes to a complete stop in the right location whether you are raising or lowering the backstop. Without these switches, backstops could accidentally be raised all the way into the ceiling. With a limit switch on an electric winch, raising or lowering a backstop is now as simple as turning a key.
Along with the installation of electric winches, we also offer replacement and maintenance. If you need to replace a manual crank winch with an electric winch or need to update your electric winch, Borgman Athletics wants your sports to happen — safely. With a combined experience of 80 years, we make service and safety our top priorities. All of our employees are OSHA 30 certified or carry OSHA 10 cards and our employees always leave the work site clean with a job well done.
When your gymnasium or athletic facility is constantly moving basketball backstops, having an electric winch installed by Borgman is the best way to make sports happen. If you want to know more about the electric winches we have installed and maintained, feel free to visit our basketball backstop GALLERY or CONTACT US for more details. As always, we offer inspections, general repairs, preventative safety measures and visual safety inspections as a part of our services.
