The Iron Horses' strength begins with a 4” steel frame at each end of the cage. The frame comes ready to accept our tension hardware and cable system. This system ensures our KVX200 Nets will hang properly without significant sag.
Stability for the Iron Horse is a function of our engineering and design teams' industry-leading innovation. When our cabling system is tightened, the top of the cage will fall inwards, and the bottom will kick out away from the tension. We combat this movement with an innovative back-bracing system. Unlike a typical brace that extends out away from the cage, our system runs parallel towards the center to create a stable four-point platform, while saving you space.
Note: Please do not attach the lower corners of the vinyl back drop tight to the net. Doing so will cause the net to tear from heightened wear. We recommend 6" of slack with twine or bungee loops.
Concrete Free: Using our 18” Heavy Duty Ground Stakes, the Iron Horse is easy to install. No holes, cement or special tools are required, provided that your soil conditions are suitable. Stakes will not have sufficient holding power in sand, fresh fill, nor overly saturated ground.
Concrete: This batting cage can be securely installed using j-bolts for anchoring into concrete.
The size of the footprint is different from the net size. This cages frame is bigger than the net size. If you choose a net size of 12ft wide your footprint will be 14ft 5in wide. If you choose a net size of 14ft wide the footprint will be 16ft 5in wide. For the length, add 5ft to the net size.
Example: A 12ft W x 55ft L net size will have a 14ft 5in W x 60ft L total footprint.
