T-REX® Recreational Portable Basketball System for Indoor Use


SKU BA894USR Category Tag


Bison now offers a T-Rex portable basketball system for every level of play from elite level international to intramural and recreational play. All T-Rex portables feature industry leading extension spring counterbalance technology making raising, lowering and storage simple, safe and fast. All pivot locations operate freely on zero maintenance, self-lubricating bearings and chrome plated steel pivot axles. Weight ballast is hidden from sight in a covered weight containment cell. Narrow profile uprights reduce visual interference for fans or media behind the base. Floor friendly 8″ x 2″ wide casters in a variety of configurations depending on the T-Rex model you select, make moving your T-Rex easy and worry free. All T-Rex portables, when in the transport position, will roll through any doorway that is at least 84″ high and 78″ wide.

T-Rex Recreational is identical to T-Rex Club except the backboard is constructed of ½” thick clear, unbreakable polycarbonate instead of glass making it perfect for facilities where there is concern of vandalism or other activities that might threaten traditional tempered glass backboards. In addition, T-Rex Recreational comes with a locking device to eliminate unwanted and unsupervised raising and lowering of the basket.  Add ABC50 for custom padding graphics.

If your program intends to use T-Rex Recreational outdoors, order BA894USRO for an outdoor version of T-Rex Recreational that substitutes Bison outdoor backboard padding and weather resistant pressure treated plywood for OSB board as backing for the base padding system. In addition, BA894USRO includes a security lock system to insure that the unit cannot be lowered and rolled from its installed location without authorization.
