The Importance of Maintaining Your Gymnasium Equipment

October 23, 2018

Does your gymnasium often have faulty sports equipment that interrupts games and practices and keeps fans from enjoying the action? As a facility manager, are you constantly being burdened with numerous costly repairs or replacements? If these scenarios are all too familiar, it’s never too late to start an equipment maintenance program in your facility! 

It’s important to routinely inspect all of your sports equipment to assess its condition and repair promptly if needed. Regular maintenance will save you money in the long run by preventing expensive repairs or replacements down the line and will extend the lifespan of your equipment to provide years of use. More importantly, properly maintained equipment will operate safely and can prevent injuries to personnel, athletes, fans, and visitors. In fact, most manufacturers require equipment inspections on an annual basis, or product warranties may be voided. Make sure to always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations regarding operation, maintenance, and referrals for certified repair individuals. 

Performance Sports Systems understands that keeping up with gymnasium equipment can be a daunting task. Unfortunately, there is no regulatory agency in place for inspecting indoor sports facilities, leaving many facility managers with the burden of managing risk on their own. That’s where PSS Orange Zone™ certified dealers come in. Our dealers are trained to inspect your equipment and perform necessary repairs or replacements to keep your facility running smoothly and ensure the safety of users. Visit our website at to learn more about our Orange Zone™ Maintenance and Safety Program, and let us help you get your gym safe and ready for action!

Best Benefit

The PSS Orange Zone™ Maintenance Program offers two levels of inspections to meet your facility’s needs:

Level 1 A visual inspection by a factory-trained PSS representative to identify what equipment maintenance will be needed.  

Level 2 A visual inspection in conjunction with maintenance, including tightening all fasteners,  inspecting all welds, lubricating all moving parts, checking alignment, and inspecting all cables, pulleys and safety straps.
