Basketball Backboards

If you are interested in replacing your basketball backboard, you need to know a few things. For example, the dimensions that you want to use. If you already were using a backboard but were unhappy with the shot support received from the backboard, then you may want to go larger. Basketball backboards are available from 40 to 72 inches. 40 to 60 inches are your typical home sizes and 72 inches is regulation. The rule for basketball backboards is that the bigger the backboard the easier it is to make a shot.

Basketball backboards are also available in a couple of different thicknesses. Regulation is 1/2" thick, for home use; however, you should determine the thickness based on your need and amount of use it will receive. The thicker the backboard is, the longer it will last and the more durable it will be. However, affordability will most likely play a big part in your purchase, especially for a home purchase, and the thinner the board (as well as the smaller) the less expensive it will be.

Backboards are available in several different types of materials, which include acrylic, tempered glass, plastic, aluminum, steel, and fiberglass. Each one of these materials has their own merit for basketball players. Most decisions are made about materials based on durability and affordability. Using the different kinds of materials while playing basketball will often make it easier for you to make your decision when the time comes.

When choosing your shape you have two choices, either rectangular or fan shaped. Each one has their own benefits. The rectangular shape is what the Pro's use, as it's the best for making shots and improving free throw and other shooting skills. The fan shaped is typical for a home setting, this is because it is much more affordable than the rectangular shaped. However, if your game is already good, then the fan shape will do fine for practicing.

There is a backboard for every budget and for every situation, whether for serious play or for recreation. Choose the right size and materials based on your needs, your support equipment (such as the pole) and your budget and you will be happy with your purchase.

COMPETITION GLASS BACKBOARDS

Competition glass backboards is what the pro's use, as the backboard is virtually shatter proof and gives you a true responsive bounce off the board. Designed for indoor use.

STANDARD GLASS BACKBOARDS

Standard glass backboards are similar to competition one's, however they are usually not official size, and designed for a non competitive environment. Can be used for indoor and outdoor use.

ACRYLIC FIBER BACKBOARDS

Acrylic backboards are an alternative to glass, and certainly get the job done, but they don't really compare quite as well to the firmness and rigidity of a glass backboard.

STEEL BACKBOARDS

Steel backboards are a perfect fit for a playground environment, as they hold up well under extreme wear and tear, and vandalism. They are powder coated to hold up under adverse weather as well.

ALUMINUM BACKBOARDS

Aluminum backboards are casted and molded to make it more rigid than steel, but can crack over time. This backboard is an all weather board and is designed for playground use as well.

WOOD & FIBERGLASS BACKBOARDS

Fiberglass backboards are fanshaped and rectangular, light weight, molded, and sealed to make them water proof. They are constructed for indoor and outdoor use.
