Beacon FuseLinkOur patent-pending FuseLink was nominated for the “Game-Changer Award” at the 2019 American Sports Builders Association Conference. FuseLink brings an innovative solution to a common problem — protecting the cable tension systems used to hold nets in place. Cable tensioning used with batting cages face potential structural damage and expensive repairs from excessive winds or damaging weight from snow or ice. Beacon’s FuseLink provides a smart, effective solution.


TUFFframe™ ELITE Outdoor Batting Cage

The TUFFframe™ ELITE makes on-the-fly tensioning adjustments easy.

The winch handles are removable so tensioning cannot be tampered with by unauthorized personnel. With only three poles on each end, there are no intermediate pipes or overhead structure to create a ricochet hazard. Add optional grounds sleeves (1 per pole) to streamline installation.

This is an amazing batting cage. With the crank-pulley winch system we can easily remove the netting from the cage. And, with poles only on the ends we don't have any ball ricochets. We absolutely love our double batting cages!

They all feature heavy-duty end panels, vinyl reinforced joints, grommeted hanging points in top section (perimeter and center), two large over-flap doorways and fully grommeted bottom edge for staking.

What is the required footprint and how many poles come with each batting cage?

It depends upon the size and model. Below is a summary of our batting cages:
[Table of batting cage sizes and poles]

What are the foundation requirements for a batting cage?

Foundation requirements can vary. That variance is typically based on factors such as budget, space and location.

The two most popular options are concrete or a crushed aggregate-type material. However, if these options do not fit your plans or specifications, natural grass can be considered as an alternative, though natural grass is NOT recommended.

After the main foundation has been determined, polypropylene urethane artificial turf would be the best option to cover the main foundation. Artificial turf will give you extra protection for your equipment, as well as give you a more professional look & feel.

Do I need a subsurface, like artificial turf?

Artificial turf is HIGHLY recommended for any batting cage, outdoor or indoor. With outdoor cages, you’ll want to be sure to avoid using turf with “foam backing”. As moisture seeps into foam-backed turf, the foam will likely to rot or deteriorate over time.

The best turf option for outdoor applications is 24oz to 40oz polypropylene urethane backing artificial turf.

What accessories are recommended for batting cages?

Accessories for batting cages and improve safety and function, while also providing the finishing touches for your batting cage. The key accessories for your batting cage include a pitchers L-screen, hitting mat, external hitting stations, pitching machines, baffle net, net protector, and artificial turf.

We recommend browsing all of our batting cage accessories to improve safety and functionality.

How do you properly store the net in the off season?

Aluminum poles: Premium Harken Lifting Blocks and halyards.
Steel poles: Winches.

What are the mounting options for barrier netting?

The best way to store batting cage netting in the offseason is in a temperature-controlled area, like a storage room, secured within a plastic bin so the net does not become damp.

Is there a door flap for easy entry & exit?

Yes, all Beacon batting cages have at least one door flap for fast, safe entry and exit.

How are batting cages shipped and what’s needed to unload?

Poles: Ship via freight. You will need a forklift and the capacity to take a 12′, 14′, or 16′ pallet off the truck.
Hardware and netting: Products are palletized and ship freight through a common carrier from various locations. You may need a forklift to offload depending on the size of your batting cage.

Please note: Shipping methods may vary depending on the size of the order.
