Over twenty steps go into the construction of each Bakko backboard panel. Pre-fabricated panel concept allows virtually an unlimited size and/or placement capability for any facility or application. Each panel is 4 feet wide, 8 or 10 feet high and weighs 80 to 150 pounds. The backboards are ready for play when the pre-fabricated, completely finished, green fiberglass interlocking panels are affixed to your tennis court fence posts or wall. The Bakko assembly kit holds the panels in a tight, unitized, side-by-side construction. Kits come in traditional flat and single curved styles. All kits are complete.
Visually looks like 8' Flat Slimline series and is designed to compete with those who build wood backboards. Each panel contains sound deadening interior (no metal interior frame) and is encased in the same outer fiberglass and gel coat shell coated with Imron paint. Three horizontal rows of pressure treated 2x4s (provided) are mounted to fence post. Holes are then drilled through panels at appropriate heights (instructions explain this) and attach panels with provided green faced bolts.
Installation requires more carpentry skill, however it remains very simple and quick to mount. Although not as quiet as Bakko's other backboards, it is quieter than an average wood backboard, looks much better and does not fade, warp, peel or rot in 2-3 years like wood backboards.
The Economy series is competitive in price when factoring cost of materials, design and construction, filling, painting/repainting, installation and labor of a wood backboard. The Economy series is often sold for driveways and backyards but requires mounting 2 or 3 standard fence post in the ground.
Space required: Width of backboard and length of 40' (service practice requires 39', distance from baseline to backboard). Typically purchased by budget conscious court owners, driveways, schools and parks where noise is not a major issue. Most common purchase size is 3 and 4 panels.
