Mastodon™ Engineered Frame System

  • The Mastodon™ batting cage frame system includes 8.625" outside diameter structural steel pipes coated with the same finish used on the Alaska Pipeline.
  • It has fewer components, and offers free and clear spans up to 75' in either direction - without significant sag.
  • The poles come completely prepared to accept our tensioning hardware and the following is included: structural steel poles, heavy duty 3/16" galvanized aircraft cable (enough for a 14' x 80' footprint), galvanized steel carabiners.
  • A cable tensioning system ensures that your net will hang properly and needs no special tools.

Corrosion Resistant Coating

  • All poles are corrosion dipped, finished with STRYK 5388, and sealed with a welded top cap preventing internal corrosion. STRYK 5388 forms a solid coating which bonds to the substrate, preventing corrosion even if coating is scratched or damaged.
  • STRYK 5388 is a thick rust-inhibitive coating used on the Alaska pipeline with a high degree of impermeability to moisture.
  • The finish remains highly flexible and elastic in extreme temperatures.
  • It will not support fungal growth in humid or water-immersed environments or crack in extreme weather conditions.
