These nylon carrying cases are for Soft Tiles foam floor mats. The bag is zippered with two large handles. Each bag is designed to hold up to 18 tiles which is half of an FIRST Tech Challenge playing field. This is the bag by itself and does not come with Soft Tiles. This bag is perfect for a team practicing at home or an event manager transporting fields to and from venues.
This is the official FIRST Tech Challenge Perimeter. This perimeter may be referenced as am-0481, am-0481a, or am-0481b in documentation. This is reusable from year to year and does not include soft tiles, game-specific hardware, components, or game pieces. This "b" revision is compatible with the previous "a" revision, meaning "b" version corners and panels can be used as replacement in "a" version perimeters.
The perimeter is comprised of eight hinged panels and four straight panels. Once assembled, the perimeter creates an 11 feet 9 inch by 11 feet 9 inch square enclosure. The hinged corners and quick release pins make for easy assembly, requiring no tools. Side panels include a built-in wire way for easy cable management.
An adjustable Perimeter Strap (am-2270a) placed under this playing surface help keep the walls square during game play.
