The frame has arches with three strong cables going the length of the frame to support the batting cage. Elbows and ground sleeves are made in America and are 14 gauge 2¼"steel.
To save money on shipping costs, you can purchase the poles locally. Kit comes with all the materials to assemble the frame except the 10 ft. poles. Netting is not included in the frame kit. These 15.5' wide frame kits fit batting cages with a 12' or 14' width. (You will need to purchase 10 ft. poles from a hardware store. We recommend using ground stakes to secure your frame in windy locations.)
