Perimeter Fencing

Schools have an obligation to secure their perimeters so that visitors’ access is limited to approved entrance ways. The fences on perimeters also need to have excellent aesthetics (so as to make sure the school looks welcoming to children and parents alike!) as well as providing good vandal resistance qualities. Schools also have requirements for internal fences, mainly for playgrounds and sports pitch surrounds such as tennis courts and football pitches.

Ashlands Fencing are a leader in the field of school fencing, providing high quality welded mesh fencing from suppliers such as AXIS® and CODI, two of the most highly regarded fencing systems available. Weld mesh fencing provides an excellent solution for security and sports perimiter fencing. We provide medium to high security fencing systems to suit all budgets and customer needs. We supply and install all types of railings including bow top, vertical bar and ornamental which can be manufactured to all sizes and designs. Ashlands Fencing also supply specialist timber fencing (planed and sealed to avoid splintering) which is well suited to internal fencing requirements and certain perimeter fencing situations.

Ball Stop Fencing

Ball Stop Fencing is a general description of a perimeter designed to prevent the escape of balls during play. Requirements will vary depending on the leisure or sport application and the constraints placed upon it by its location. Add this to the security requirements and the need for an aesthetically pleasing finish to a project and it soon becomes clear that there is no single solution that suits all applications. Mesh panel construction enables the fence to be taken to heights on 5m behind goals and other areas where greater protection for neighbouring sites is deemed necessary.

Ball Return Fencing

The highest specification of ball stop fencing is required where the fencing is integral to the courts use. Typically this “ball return” is in a five aside football application. In this situation it is usual to have the lower 1.2m reinforced. This provides the perimeter fence the the extra strength required to cope with the additional forces applied to it during its life.

Multi-Use Game Areas (MUGA Pitches)

Multi Sport surfaces (often known as MUGA pitches) offer cost effective solutions for facilities seeking to meet a wide range of sporting demands. The use of multi application areas allows for a greater userbase but requires greater consideration of the materials to be used. Working closely with clients, we can create a specification focusing on the priority sports within the broader constraints of any project.
