Install Cyclone Fencing At Home To Demarcate Your Sporting Courts

Fences at home are not just installed along the perimeter boundary or around swimming pools. Another area that you should consider fencing at home is around sporting courts/enclosures. For this type of application, cyclone fencing, also known as chain link fencing is ideal. So if you are planning to install a sporting court at home, contact a cyclone fencing contractor as well. Read on to learn more. 

Where to install 

As mentioned above, the plan is to install cyclone fencing/chain link fencing around sporting enclosures at home. Some of the common sporting courts where this best applies include:

  • Football fields
  • Basketball courts
  • Tennis courts
  • Baseball fields, etc. 

Basically, it's any outdoor sporting area where balls are involved.   Advantages of installing cyclone fencing in sporting areas

Installing chain link fencing around residential sporting enclosures has numerous benefits. These are:

  1. Restrain ball movement. The fence will trap the balls within the enclosure to keep them from rolling away from reach during game play.
  2. Prevent ball-related injury. If installed between the court and the spectator area, the fence will keep the ball from flying into and injuring the spectators.
  3. Prevent ball-related property damage. The fence will restrain the ball from damaging your house, car or other structures around your property during game play. 
  4. Prevent ball loss. The cyclone fence will keep your balls from getting lost within your property. 
  5. Allow spectator visibility. The see-through diamond-shaped slots of the chain link fence will allow an audience to easily spectate without straining to follow the game. 
  6. Contain/demarcate the play area within your compound. The cyclone fence allows you to carve out the playing area and demarcate it from other sections of your compound.

What to consider before installation

Sizing: Choose the ideal size for your fence. For example, you'll need to choose the right height that will cover the enclosure properly without letting the balls through. Still on sizing, you will need to choose the right wire diameter and diamond size adequate for your needs.  

Coating: Cyclone fences are normally coated to keep the steel wire from corroding due to moisture exposure. Standard cyclone fencing is zinc coated (galvanized). However, you have the option to choose powder coating or vinyl coating instead.  

Support posts: The supports posts on a cyclone fence determine how strong the overall fence is. You can opt for timber, steel or aluminium posts. Either can be placed at specific intervals to give your fence the needed structural strength.   

Cyclone fencing is fast and cost-friendly. In most cases, a contractor can put it up within one or just a few days.  In addition to that, the fence can always be recycled and used for other applications such as perimeter fencing.
