At Procter Fencing Systems we have extensive experience in sports ground fencing and therefore understand the many specific requirements it can present. Fencing for sports grounds and sports areas comes in a vast range of styles and patterns to suit different requirements, but in most cases, the main fencing material we would use is our heavy duty Procter Duo Mesh. However, the detailed specification of the sports fencing will be determined by factors such as the types of sport/s played, plus proximity to road and houses etc. to ensure balls remain within the confines of the sports area.
Why Procter Duo Mesh is ideal for Sports Grounds
The mesh aperture for this twin-wire type of welded mesh fence is 200mm x 50mm. Twin horizontal wires at each intersection give a rigid but flat profile, with additional horizontal wires for the lower 1.2m giving a highly rigid mesh fence and with even and predictable rebound properties - obviously important in many ball games such as five-a-side football.
As the name suggests, this type of welded mesh fencing is specifically for sports grounds. If the mesh fencing is used for sports grounds where hockey is played, an additional 300mm high timber rebound board is also used. To prevent balls going over the mesh fence, Procter Sports Fencing is available in heights of up to five metres. If this isn't considered high enough, we can add 'ball stop netting' taking the total height up to ten metres.
Posts are made from steel hollow sections and to a specification which suits the height of the welded mesh fencing and typical usage of the sports area. Clamp bars are full height as this helps keep the profile as flat as possible. Finish for both the posts and mesh fencing panels is galvanised and polyester coated to any one of a wide range of standard RAL colours. Non-standard colours are also available to match what's appropriate on the site to be protected.
Alternative Materials and Customised Fence for Different Sports
Although we typically use our Duo Mesh system as the basic material for sports fencing, other types of the mesh panel and welded mesh fencing are also available and will be right for some applications. In all cases though, a site visit from one of Procter Fencing Systems' highly experienced surveyors will determine both the best material to use and how the fencing should be customised to ensure it is suitable for the intended sports.
Multi Use Games Areas - often called 'MUGAs' in the industry - will typically require a number of additions to ensure the mesh panel fencing can cope with a variety of sports. Examples of these additions can include:
- To prevent balls going over the mesh fence, Procter Sports Fencing is available in heights of up to five metres. If this isn't considered high enough, we can add 'ball stop netting' taking the total height up to ten metres.
- If the mesh fencing is used for sports grounds where hockey is played, an additional 300mm high timber rebound board is also used.
- Other sports-specific elements such as goal fencing can be installed, and the fence can be designed to form a goal mouth, whilst still keeping the ball within the confines of the games area. Equally, the structure can also have fitted to it netball and basketball rings.
Specification and finish of sports ground fencing
Posts for our sports ground fencing and MUGA fencing are made from steel hollow sections and to a specification which suits the height of the welded mesh fencing and typical usage of the sports area. Clamp bars are full height as this helps keep the profile as flat as possible. Finish for both the posts and mesh fencing panels is galvanised and polyester coated with any one of a wide range of standard RAL colours. Non-standard colours are also available to match surrounding property - e.g. a school.
Expertise in Spectator GuardRails and Barriers
Procter Fencing Systems designs manufactures and installs spectator barriers and guard rails at sports grounds, stadiums and arenas across the UK. With crowd safety such an important issue for any owner of a sports ground, stadium or arena, it's clearly important that barriers and guard rails are high quality and fully up to the job. In addition, the aesthetics of the crowd barriers and guard rails may also be a consideration - e.g. for a new or redeveloped stadium, arena or other facilities. Therefore having a supplier you can fully trust is essential and in Procter Fencing Systems you can certainly do so.
Procter Fencing Systems has been designing, manufacturing and expertly installing all types of fencing and barriers for over 100 years. This level of experience and expertise is almost unrivalled, and for a project as important as crowd barriers and guard rails is clearly very reassuring.
Bespoke design of Spectator Barriers and Guard Rails
The exact requirements of spectator barriers and guard rails will obviously vary considerably from site to site, with factors including the level of load bearing required, right through to the aesthetics of the barriers and guard rails. In all cases, at Procter Fencing Systems we are able to manufacture any type of spectator barrier or guardrail and either from a design we produce or to an architect's drawing.
