Thor 9 Hammer Cages

Thor 9 Hammer Cages

Most hammer cages are easily susceptible to damage. Poles get dented and nets become torn by implement impact. Cages that have low wind ratings spend most of their life in an unusable condition because the net is lowered. Throwers are then limited to when they can train and the cage becomes labour intensive to make usable.

Play Hard Sports has two athletic hammer throw cages that will provide a better experience for everyone.

Both cages feature:

  • Wind rated to 100 km/h – nets can remain erected in strong winds.
  • Reduced number of support poles – for better vision and reduced risk of implement damage.
  • Custom labels
  • Choice of 12 colours (two pac gloss paint finish).
