PROformance Hoops promotes quality family playtime, fitness and fun by delivering the safest, most stable and durable in-ground basketball hoops in the industry. Our team of athletes, engineers and field service representatives have been listening and responding to customer needs for more than 20 years. The passion that we have for basketball and outdoor entertainment can be found in the materials, construction, innovation and overall attention to detail, that goes into every basketball goal that we deliver. We do not go to market with any PROformance Hoops basketball system or accessory until our own families and associates approve of their safety, stability and durability. Basketball is what we do, value is what we deliver.
“Knowing I've played a small part in helping families create lasting memories by playing hours of basketball together in their driveway is a pretty awesome feeling.”
- Jack May, PROformance Design Engineer
Tempered Safety Glass is manufactured through a process of extreme heating and rapid cooling, making it harder, more durable and safer than regular glass. Our glass is also wrapped with a Full Perimeter Aluminum Trim which protects the edges of the glass and adds an extra layer of safety and stability.
Our one-piece poles use 50%-200% thicker steel walls than industry standards, and unlike most of our competition, each pole goes through a multi-step corrosion and rust-resistant process. Each pole is cleaned to remove oils, grease, and dirt, dipped in an acidic solution to remove any flakes of steel, Galvanized (PROview) or Electroplated (PROforce) with a heavy Zinc coating and then Powder Coated.
Thick triangular welded pieces of steel are strategically placed at the base of the pole for maximum stability and playability. Slotted holes on the base plate ensure level and square installation of every system. This carefully thought out base provides less shake and vibration, allowing for aggressive play.
This oversized Pier Mount Anchor System design exceeds all durability, stability and safety expectations that come with a purchase of an in-ground basketball hoop. The zinc and powder coated base plate, extra thick Pier Mount J-bolts and four (4) pieces of reinforcing rebar (included) allows for easy installation and leveling of the entire system. Ground sleeves and other mounting systems are no match to the Pier Mount Anchor System.
Stainless steel is the most corrosion resistant of all alloys in any extreme weather conditions. Its Chromium Oxide film self-repairs from any scratches that might occur during installation and use. Besides being more aesthetically pleasing, the stainless steel hardware and attachments will keep all parts of your basketball system more secure over time with no need to replace rusted out and corroded hardware.
The safety Bolt-to-Steel Rim Attachment is constructed so the bolts from the rim mount directly to the steel behind the backboard, therefore no stress is ever put on the tempered safety glass, aluminum trim or solid steel frame. The unique design allows for aggressive play without damage to the backboard because the energy is absorbed through the extension arms, down the pole and into the Pier Mount Anchor.
Our Dual Spring Break-Away Rim is equipped with two(2) high-tension stainless steel powder coated springs. The rim “breaks away” and rebounds back to its normal position when any type of extreme force is put on it. This not only protects the system, but more importantly protects players during aggressive play. The rim also features a Hide-Away Net which eliminates the need for protruding hooks and attachments which cause finger and hand injuries. The net comes pre-attached to the rim, but is quicker to replace than conventional “Ram’s Horns” rims.
The Power Arc 90® Lift Assist allows you to easily adjust your rim from 6ft to10ft. The Dual Cylinder System creates the easiest and most precise height adjustment system on the market today. One cylinder is a tension screw mechanism attached to a gearbox, and with the use of ball bearings allows for precise adjustment and support. The second has an internal spring that allows for low resistance and ease of adjustment. The 90-degree crank handle is attached to a gear box and is easily removable.
