Sports Fencing in Omaha FAQ

What types of sports fences are used for recreational purposes?

The answer to this question really depends on what you’re hoping to accomplish in the long run. Chain link sports fences in Omaha has been the standard for years for ballfields; it is durable, functional, and cost effective, its use on ball fields is unparalleled. The size of the mesh between the wires is typically less than that used on ball fields to prevent tennis balls from passing through the mesh.  We recommend GBW chain link fabric because of its smooth texture. This means athletes, as well as spectators, are less likely to cut themselves when they come in contact with your sports fencing in Omaha. What’s more, chain link framework is durable enough to support the windscreen frequently installed around tennis courts and outfield fencing.

The Chain Link Fence Manufactures Institute, CLFMI, provides an excellent tool used for picking out ideal post diameters and wall thicknesses for your application. This tool takes into account conditions such as typical wind loads, site obstructions, soil conditions, density of material — not to mention the height and weight of chain link fabric used to construct your sports fencing in Omaha. 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.  By nature, backstops are very tall and formed in a cupping pattern, capturing the wind.

Vinyl coated chain link fencing is the more attractive alternative to the traditional galvanized chain link fence. It places a colored vinyl coating over the galvanized chain link giving the chain link the “color” desired. There are a number of choices concerning colors for your sports fences in Omaha: light green, dark green, black, and brown.

What other types of sports fencing in Omaha are appropriate for recreational use?

The most common type is frequently found around swimming pools. Vinyl fencing and ornamental fencing are used around swimming pools to provide security and as well as boost curb appeal. BOCA code requires a maximum of a 4” gap located anywhere along the fence with a minimum height of 6’ tall for public swimming pools.

Another popular choice for sports fencing in Omaha is woven and welded wire mesh systems.  Once primarily used for agricultural purposes, welded wire mesh systems use a heavy gauge horizontal and vertical wire, creating small rectangular shapes.  They are then powder coated a variety of colors. This application is more aesthetic over chain link. Welded wire mesh systems , popular with swimming pools and aquatic centers, provide very small opening that do not allow people to easily climb over or pass through debris.
