Thor 10 Hammer Cages


Thor 10 Hammer Cages

Why are the NEXT GENERATION CAGES a major leap forward in cage design?
Venue operators and club officials all complain about the misgivings of their throwing cage equipment. It’s either in disrepair, no longer compliant, damaged or is just difficult and labour intensive to operate. Features incorporated in the design of Thor 9 and Thor 10 hammer plus Apollo discus cages provide a better customer experience all round.

Value to Venue Owners

The high wind rating up to 100 km/h reduces the amount of time spent raising and lowering the net. The unique pole structure reduces the incidence of implement impact and thereby reducing net damage and pole damage. Reducing the number of poles and offsetting them from the net guide ropes makes it difficult for the net to be tied back. The correct net position provides the correct safety throwing zone and reduces the risk of injury. The uniqueness of the cage will draw attention and publicity to any venue.

Value to Club Officials

The biggest frustration for club officials is the time spent changing gate position during events. The new cages from Play Hard Sports are quick and easy to operate and also provide unsurpassed vision of the thrower. Correct net position ensures the safety zone is not compromised.

Value to Installers

There are fewer footing holes to drill and less concrete to pour which reduces costs and time. Erecting the cages can be done without the use of machinery.
