Whether in a domestic, school, community or sports facility setting, the priorities for any play-related fencing product are safety and the ability to successfully contain the activity to a designated area. This does not necessarily relate merely to the safe containment of children or people but can also include the prevention of balls breaching the boundary perimeter.
There are a number of important factors to consider when specifying and selecting the right fencing and gate solution for sports enclosures, Games Court Fencing, Rebound and or Ball Stop Fencing which feature lattice post reinforcements. These include participant and spectators safety, the safety of surrounding properties, the security of the enclosure when not in use and of course the playability of the enclosure.

Things to consider when installing sports fencing for your school enclosure
Specifying and selecting the correct type of fencing and gate solutions for your sports application can be difficult, so what should you consider?
1. Safety for both the participants and spectators - high visibility fencing around sports pitches and MUGAs is ideal to allow spectators clear views without risk of being injured by stray equipment, and supervisors can train from a safe distance but also quickly spot any incidents or injuries to players on the pitch.
2. Does the area you want to secure have any surrounding property or walk-ways? -
3. The level of security required for the enclosure when not in use - is the enclosure in a public place with free or paid access, or is it within the perimeter fence line of a school. Think about the storage of sports equipment too and whether this is locked inside or in a separate compound.
At Jacksons we design and install a variety of sports fencing and gates for all types of applications including football pitches, cricket grounds, tennis courts, athletic arenas, stadiums, Multi-use Games Areas (MUGAs), schools, and commercial premises, we have the experience working with some of the largest local authorities and schools in the UK.
