Bakko Slimline Flat Series Backboard 8’ x 16’ (Model #bs8x16)
Due to current supply chain issues, this item has a lead time of 8-12 weeks.
Panels are 1 3/4’ thick with correspondingly less interior framework and thickness of sound deadening material. Each panel is otherwise manufactured similarly to 10’ high professional lines. Panels are pre-drilled so green face bolts attach each panel to metal channel. 8’ backboards are usually suspended a foot off the ground. This backboard is not as quiet or pleasing as the 10’ high professional series but an excellent, durable practical product, and a good seller. Typically purchased by schools, universities and parks. Most common purchases are 3 and 5 panels.
Size: 8’ x 16’
Do It Tennis is not responsible for the set up of the new backboard.

WARRANTY INFORMATION FROM THE MANUFACTURER:
Bakko Bak Bord will honor a ten (10) year pro-rated limited warranty for our tennis backboards. The warranty includes issues such as structural integrity of each panel, no major warping, peeling, delaminating/separating or decomposition of panels. A one (1) year warranty applies to the Imron paint used for the exterior of the panels; this includes cracking, peeling, fading and oxidation. Imron, while the most expensive and an airplane/automobile grade paint, will eventually show signs of age, especially when exposed constantly to the outdoors. The signs include oxidation and light color fading. Different areas will experience paint deterioration quicker than other, for example Hawaii and Florida, with high salt content in the air, tropical climate and intense sun will experience oxidation faster than a state like Nebraska. The location and direction the backboard is situated in accordance to direct sun can also cause longevity of paint. If questions arise regarding panels oxidizing, please contact us and we can assist you in steps to restore your backboard.
The warranty does not cover the following items: vandalism, Acts of God, extreme weather conditions, marking or scratching not related to tennis usage, elements such as tree sap or animals (example: woodpeckers) or improper installations. The installation should follow manufacturer recommendations. The warranty does not cover hardware items such as channel, tape, nuts and bolts; just panels. If in extremely tropical climates, Bakko can provide galvanized or stainless hardware to increase the life span. The warranty is not valid if panels are cut or gouged, exposing the interior structure. Interior structural material exhibiting signs of imprinting on panel face does not constitute a warranty claim. The warranty is null and void if the tennis backboard is used for reasons other than it is intended for, practicing tennis with tennis balls.
The warranty is effective once the bill of lading is signed by receiver. Damage occurring during freight delivery or by the freight company that is accepted without notation as damaged on the bill of lading is not covered by warranty. All damage during shipping should be noted on bill of lading, this is not a warranty issue, but a damage shipping claim from the carrier. All shipments are F.O.B. from manufacturer.
Bakko Bak Bord is in its third decade of business and will assist owners of our backboards with any questions or concerns.
