MANUFACTURING INNOVATION SINCE 1902
Stronger Overhead: Draper's strength starts from the top. We supply all 4" O.D. 11 gauge overhead superstructure with all spans greater than 10' including bridge trussing.
NEW! Strength in the Pivot: Draper's backstop frame pivots on a 1-1/4" diameter solid steel shaft welded into the top of our T-Frame and secured in our 1/2" thick steel adjustable hanger. Each adjustable hanger allows for easy and precise leveling of the backstop and attaches to the superstructure with four 1/2", grade 5 bolts.
Beam Clamp: Draper's beam clamp provides at least 7 square inches of beam flange contact area and are secured with two all-thread bolts at each attachment point.
Precision Welding: All Draper welders have been tested and certified to meet the requirements of American Welding Society (AWS) D1.1 Structure Welding Code ensuring quality fabrication and structural integrity
Custom Built for Your Gymnasium: Draper custom designs each backstop so the lateral sway braces intersect the main mast at approximately 54" above the goal (18" above the backboard) to ensure maximum rigidity. Draper does not use stock assemblies, we make them to fit your gym.
UL Listed Winches: All Draper winches are listed by Underwriters Laboratories and feature a 1 HP motor, grooved drum, and cable tensioning system. Draper winches are protected by a five year warranty to ensure years of trouble free operation.
Posilok Safety Belt: Draper's safety belts out perform the competition. They are self-checking, automatically resetting and virtually fail-safe. They feature stronger belts and faster arrest times than safety belts used by competitors
Goal Brace: Draper's goal brace connects the goal directly to the T-Frame, removing stress from the backboard and transferring it to the support structure. Use of a goal brace allows Draper to offer a lifetime warranty on any backboard.
NEW! Upper Bank Hanger: Draper's upper bank hanger is designed to keep the backboard plumb and level even with the goal removed. Our bank hanger extends the backboard to the same distance on our height adjuster allowing for easy addition of this feature after the initial installation.
