All Ironclad backboards are encased in either a steel or aluminum perimeter frame. The glass is locked in place at the four extreme corners during the backboard production process. The perimeter frame encasement measures approximately 2" in thickness which further adds to the stability and rigidity of the backboard.
- 1/2” thick tempered glass, same thickness as competition glass backboards
- 2” thick aluminum frame surrounds perimeter of glass
- Clear View perimeter support provides a durable, clean look with no obstruction behind the glass
DIRECT RIM MOUNTING
Each backboard is designed to minimize and/or eliminate stress on the glass when players hang on the rim. This is what we call "direct rim mounting." Direct rim mounting involves a backboard design that prevents the rim from pulling on the glass when a player hangs on the rim. Direct rim mounting is a design feature that is critical to the longevity of any backboard and we build it into every product we make.
