SportPanel incorporates an optional patented safety
feature called TechnoTip - a folding elbow joint system
that allows the fence panel to fold down flat upon impact.
If a player runs into the fence while trying to catch
a fly ball, they will not injure themselves by colliding
into a rigid fence panel. Once TechnoTip is deployed
the SportPanel fence collapses completely flat. To resume
playing, simply return the panel to the upright position
and lock the feet back into place.
How it works
Each SportPanel with TechnoTip outfield fence comes equipped with two specially designed elbow joints that are attached to the panel's support feet. These joints allow the fence panel frame to bend and fold flat to the ground upon impact, preventing fielders from being injured when running into a rigid fence.
