BASIC Backboard

BASIC Backboard

Introducing the BASIC Backboard - the perfect accessory for when you need to lift your furry friend in style! This single sheet of HDPE plastic comes with all the bells and whistles - including various numbers and sizes of handholds and strapping points. We know what you're thinking - "Wow, this is basic, what's so special about it?" Well, let us tell you, friend. This backboard is constructed of High-Density Polyethylene, which means it's super strong and easy to clean (yes, even after Fluffy has had a little accident on it). It's resistant to most chemicals, so you can let your pet's wild side run free without worrying about damaging your new investment.

Now, we know you have options when it comes to backboards. That's why we offer both the Basic and Ultimate versions - but let's be real, the Basic version is still pretty awesome. It comes in three wall thicknesses: 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2". Other thicknesses can be specially ordered if you really want to go all out. Plus, the corners are rounded for safety, and all edges on both sides are also rounded to reduce drag. We don't want any accidental scratches on any animals or keepers, after all.

But wait, there's more! Each side of most Backboards will be pre-drilled for the optional use of our Bull Nose if that side is 47-1/2” or larger. So go ahead, get the animal in position, and lift them up with ease using the BASIC Backboard.
