This is the official Field Perimeter Kit for the FIRST Tech Challenge. This field may be referenced as am-0481 in your Field Build Guide. These part numbers represent the same field kit. It is reusable from year to year and does not include the game-specific hardware or game pieces.
The field is comprised of 12 polycarbonate and powder coated aluminum panels that create a 11' 9" x 11' 9" square enclosure. Each side wall consists of 3 panels, connected by aluminum panel links.
Soft Tiles (sold separately) create the playing surface while adjustable straps placed under this playing surface help keep the walls steady while taking abuse.
Hinged corners and hitch pins make for easy setup that requires no tools. Panels are assembled using a mechanical interference fit. An extrusion design includes a built in wire way to neatly run wires around the field as needed. Field weight and assembly time has been significantly reduced from previous versions.
Middle panels are optional, which will allow you to create a 12' x 8' field or an 8' x 8' field if desired.
