T-REX® Americana Manual Portable Basketball System


Categories: , , ,


Bison now offers a T-Rex portable basketball system for every level of play from elite level, FIBA sanctioned 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.

Americana™ offers all the features desired by most Division I college programs and meets or exceeds all NCAA and National High School Federation rules. Americana portables feature an 8′ safe play area and our Automatic Base Control System that makes set up and transport as easy as ABC. Just “A” roll the unit to its predetermined location on the playing surface and raise the backboard into its playing position, “B” insure that the front locator pins are properly inserted into the floor and “C” attach the rear safety hold down system. Manual base control system also available when wall, bleachers or other obstacles are present at rear of base.

Americana comes complete with a lifetime warranty official glass backboard, direct beam mount Baseline™ 180° breakaway goal, DuraSkin® backboard padding, high density vinyl upholstered base and beam padding, rear safety hold down system and a vibration deadening device to maximize system rigidity. All steel base components have a standard bright white powder coated finish but can be ordered in a wide array of additional colors at an additional cost.  T-Rex Americana is approved for FIBA LEVEL 2 competition.
