Frequently Asked Questions

Acrylic v Glass  What kind of backboard is best?

While both are clear, that's where the similarities stop.

In most cases tempered glass is the preferred backboard material because it has superior performance characteristics and is more durable over time. Acrylic is lighter rustling in a 30% reduction in rebound response. It is also softer which allows for scratching that will give the board a dull look.

Acrylic is the material of choice is you are concerned about vandalism. Tempered glass will break into several small pieces if somebody were to throw a brick at it where as acrylic might only dent.

Overhang  What is it and how much do I need?

Overhang is defined as the distance from the front of the pole to the front of the backboard. Regulation distance from the baseline to the front of the backboard is four feet.

The advantages of a larger overhang include less pole interference while going in for lay-ups and boxing out for rebounds. This creates a safer playing experience for young and elite players alike.

Generally, you'll want the largest overhang your playing area can handle. Residential systems come with a two to five foot overhang. We recommend an overhang no smaller than three feet.

Rust  Should I worry?

Corrosion can weaken parts and leave unsightly rust streaks on your equipment. Pro Dunk® systems can be protected from this with our Rust Armor protection package which battles corrosion on three fronts.

First, all fasteners are upgraded to stainless steel. Secondly, we hot-dip galvanize all steel parts adding a protective layer zinc. Lastly, we believe that these upgrades will be so effective that we upgrade your warranty to include corrosion damage.

No other manufacture can boast this kind of protection from the elements.

Powder Coating  What is it and why do you use it?

A fine powder chemically bonds to metal parts where it is then baked creating a very durable attractive finish that looks much like a paint while being much more durable.
