Product Care Tips

GLOVES/PADS/MITTS/HEADGEAR

  • Do not use gear wet – this is abuse.
  • Dry your gear out of your training bag in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight.
  • Use minimal baby powder to assist with removing odours.
  • Always use cotton inners or wraps to prevent excessive sweat ruining the stitching/materials in products, sweat/rot damage is not warrantable.
  • Ensure you have enough training gear to always use a dry set, especially in a commercial environment as over using an insufficient amount of equipment is abuse & will void your warranty.
  • Do not do push-ups in boxing gloves unless they have “push up zone” printed on them.
  • If the product is marked “washable”, hand wash separately in cold water, do not tumble dry & avoid washing more than 4 times per year.

FLOOR TO CEILING BALLS/SPEED BALLS

  • Do not over inflate bladders, especially in hot conditions.
  • Inflate until ball feels firm (not rock-hard) allowing your thumbs to push into the material approx 1.5cm.
  • Changes in temperature will require regular “topping up” of the air in inflated bladders.
  • Lick or lubricate needle before inserting into bladders while ensuring not to puncture bladders with the needle.
  • Ensure floor to ceiling ball straps are not set too tight, the ball should have a minimum of 30cm of movement in any direction, any less will damage the ball/straps.
  • Ball straps are perishable, high wear and tear items and are excluded from warranty.
  • Set your floor to ceiling ball to the approx. height of your chest for optimal training results.
  • The fitting of non-Punch Equipment accessories to your ball will void your warranty.
  • All speed-balls and floor to ceiling balls require weekly inflation & maintenance.
  • Never strike a speedball/floor to ceiling ball with bare knuckles.

Boxing Bags

  • Punch Equipment recommends your boxing bag is installed by a qualified tradesman to check the suitability of your installation as brackets or bag attachments can take a considerable amount of force with general boxing bag use.
  • Please review this installation video to increase the durability of your bag chains: https://youtu.be/AtpZWNTzPyw
  • If you change the fittings/filling or adjust the strap/chain lengths you will void your warranty.
  • Metal on metal sheering of replaceable eye-bolts, chains, swivels & hooks is not covered under warranty.
  • Only use stretchy, surgical spear gun rubber to fix a boxing bag to the floor with the tie down anchor feature.
  • Avoid D ring & figure 8 ring wear on boxing bags by hanging them with 10mm rope instead of chain.
  • Bags hung with twisted straps/chain is negligent of assembly and may void your warranty.
  • Beating bags with weapons, striking with bare knuckles or shoes may puncture/damage bags which is not warrantable.
  • Avoid dragging bags or straps, this form of damage is not warrantable.
  • Avoid hanging bags near (within 1.5 meters) walls/mirrors and other gym equipment.
  • Wipe bags down with disinfectant diluted in warm water once per week for hygienic maintenance.
  • Spray/lubricate “D” rings, chains and places where moving metal parts touch once per week where required.
  • Inspect weekly for wear in strap rings, swivels & chains. Failure to do so can result in your boxing bag failing suddenly.
