Beacon Woodless Backstop Pads

We’ve reimagined how backstop padding should work. These are just way easier to install and remove for offseason storage… why? They’re 85% lighter than common plywood-backed pads. And, without the plywood backing, they won’t warp! They look great, perform as designed, and will last for years. Each 3’H x 4’W pad is sold separately.  2″ thick foam with 18 oz UV treated vinyl cover.  Comes with mounting brackets, full-length support batten and velcro closure.

Beacon Woodless Backstop Pads

THE CHALLENGE: Common plywood-backed pads that are used outdoors do not hold up (they warp, crack, etc.). Mounting them is time consuming, difficult work. They’re heavy and hard to move & store, so they are often left out year round, shortening the life of the pads.

THE SOLUTION: So what’s the secret? There’s no warp-prone plywood. Common wall pads have plywood backing. That makes those pads heavy, hard to remove off-season, and prone to warping. Not only does that look bad, it creates a safety and playability issue from the awkward bounces that come with it. Beacon Woodless Backstop Padding is 85% lighter, making them way easier to remove for the off season and keeping them warp-free without the typical built-in wood backing. Here’s how it works: Poles are set for your wall, slide-over post brackets are used to attached treated lumber planks and the Beacon Woodless Backstop Pads are secured with a solid batten to a mounted stainless steel bracket. A smart, efficient, and long-lasting Beacon innovation.

Innovative Solutions

Our product development efforts are triggered when we see a problem confronting our customers. We have found the typical backstop base wall — brick or concrete — to be expensive & difficult to install, plus the pads used on concrete walls are heavy, hard to mount, and can warp out of shape. To solve these problems and complement our net backstop products, we have developed as part of our Defender Series the Beacon Backstop Wall System and Beacon Woodless Backstop Pads — the total backstop solution.

Beacon’s a great resource for our ballfield equipment. Their woodless pads look great and are easy to install. Our staff really appreciates the quick-change panel swapping and easy removal for storage.”
