Sports Complex Fencing in Kearney, NE FAQ

What types of fence are used for recreational purposes?

For years, chain link fencing—durable, functional, and cost-effective—has been the standard for ballfields. The size of the mesh is typically less than that used on ball fields to prevent tennis balls from passing through the mesh.  We recommend the use of a GBW chain link fabric for its smooth texture, making it less for athletes to cut themselves when they come in contact with the material.

Chain link framework also supports the windscreen frequently attached to tennis courts and outfield fencing. The Chain Link Fence Manufactures Institute, CLFMI, provides an excellent tool in selecting the appropriate post diameter and wall thickness for your application.  This tool takes into consideration site obstructions, soil conditions, typical wind loads, density of material, height and weight of chain link fabric.  Through a user friendly formula, you can easily determine the appropriate post and post spacing. The use of this selection tool is critical in designing backstops.

An attractive alternative to traditional galvanized chain link fencing, the black vinyl coated variant places colored coating over the galvanized material. There are a number of choices regarding color: black, brown, dark green, and light green.

What other types of fence are appropriate for recreational use?

There are types of fencing other than chain link that have recreational applications. The most common example is swimming pool fencing in Kearney, NE. PVC vinyl fence and ornamental fencing are used around swimming pools to provide security and as well as create an attractive aesthetic. For public swimming pools, BOCA code requires a maximum of a 4” gap located anywhere along the fence with a minimum height of 6’.

Another popular sports fence choice is woven and welded wire mesh systems.  A popular choice for agricultural settings as well, welded wire mesh systems use heavy gauge horizontal and vertical wires to create small rectangular shapes. The systems are generally panelized and set between square posts using boulevard brackets. This application is more aesthetically pleasing than traditional chain link fence panels. Also popular with swimming pools and aquatic centers, welded wire mesh systems—with their small gaps—do not allow people to easily climb over.

There are many styles of sports fencing to choose from, which allows the customer to design their fence according to their personal style. Care should be taken to ensure chosen style meets code requirements for swimming pools in Kearney, NE.
