Schelde’s engineering invented Spring loaded basketball units in the early 1980’s. Before that all portable units had hydraulic systems to lift them. They leaked and required electricity. Now one person can lift a unit into place with he SAM spring assisted mechanism.
Another addition invented by Schelde is an automatic lifting system DSF dynamic subframe and APF automatic pedestal feet. This automatically levels and sets the unit at the correct height by simply lifting the unit into playing position.
Schelde engineers invented the very first light weight volleyball equipment and the flagship model – Infinity system – is still one of the most versatile, easy to use and popular system out there. Today, most volleyball equipment companies make a lightweight model because of Schelde’s lead starting back in the early 80’s. Our net design with 4 point attachment saves a lot of set up time and we have moved into carbon fiber posts. We continue to innovate and improve.
The engineering staff is not sitting on their hands now – Schelde continues to bring game and market changing products to market. Our tag line – Superior by Design is not just for show – it is what we do.
Both basketball and volleyball equipment have been changed by Schelde’s lead in developing the products mentioned above.
Our goal is always to design equipment that is durable and easy to use on a day to day basis. Our equipment not only works well and is of great design but it saves users time every day so they can focus on the sport and not the equipment.
