FAQ’s about Sports Performance & Commercial Inflatables
How big are your air-sealed cages?
Our batting cages and Lacrosse stations are all 12 feet high x 16 feet wide. We make them in 20 foot sections, so you can choose a 20’ cage as a single station, or choose a fully enclosed tunnel in lengths of 40’, 60’, or 80’. Our Backstops and Golf Bays are 12 feet high x 18.5 feet wide. Our soccer goals are 6’ x 18’ (youth) and 8’ x 24’ (adult). Our new backyard multisport stations will be approximately 11’ high & come in varying lengths. Other sizes can be made as long as we feel that the cage will be structurally sound.
How big are your air-flow Marketing cages?
Our marketing cages can be created in almost any size or shape imaginable. We pride ourselves on making a near exact replica of your product, and focusing on high quality graphics to ensure a premium product. We use quality materials to achieve this, and we don’t cut corners. We want your inflatable to make an impact, so our smallest piece will be around 6’ tall and 6’ wide. We have created cages and tunnels in excess of 20’ x 30’, so almost no size is too big.
What assembly is required for your air-sealed cages? Does the netting come with them?
None! That’s what makes our cages so unique, portable, and easy to use! All of our cages already come fully assembled with the netting attached. All you do is unroll and inflate, disconnect the blower, and your cage is up and ready for use without the need for constant power in 3-12 minutes depending on which model you choose.
How heavy are they? Are they easy to move?
Our cages are extremely easy to move and position once they are inflated. Because we make them sturdy and built for performance, some cages are heavy when deflated (75-270 lbs. for our entire line), but this also allows our cages to stand tall and strong during practice or competition.
Can baseball and softball (or other sports) use the same cage and netting?
Yes! This allows our University, HS, MS, and youth sports organizations to use the exact same cages, so that more than 1 sport can benefit from having their own personal cage. Many of our coaches love that baseball can use an 80 footer for full pitching/hitting practice, and then divide it into 2 40’ cages later for the softball team’s practice. Versatility is key, which is why we designed them to be used by more than one sport, and accomplish more than one objective during practice.
How long do they take to inflate/deflate? How small do they pack down when deflated?
As of 2013, our cages set up and breakdown faster than ever. Each cage requires only 3-12 minutes to inflate and/or deflate, from our smallest unit to the largest. Our youtube videos are available here: www.youtube.com/weareinmotionair which demonstrate how to do so. Also, we understand storage space is a premium, so we have designed our cages to breakdown to only a fraction of their size, and because they are built in individual sections, you only need inflate the sections you will use for practice that day.
