Zaun’s railing goal units can be manufactured as either junior goals for schools and play areas or larger to the official 5-a-side goal size. The goal uses solid railings, and so provides a robust ball stop surface. In addition, the simple design results in an attractive appearance, with a curved bar, top not only adding to the aesthetic value but also discouraging children from standing on the back of the goal, which can pose a safety hazard. Goals can be manufactured to any size but as standard as 3023mm wide x 1200mm high with a basketball unit above.

The recessed vertical bar goal is available with a selection of mesh options, including our Duo Sports fencing system, manufactured from either dual horizontal 6mm wires sandwiching single 5mm vertical wires (Duo 6 Sports) or 8mm wires sandwiching single 6mm vertical wires (Duo 8 Sports). This produces a 50mm x 200mm mesh pattern that is strong and vandal resistant and offers the best value.

Alternatively, recess goals can also be manufactured using our Super Rebound fencing system, which has been developed to offer a more attractive, practical and community-friendly alternative to standard wooden or plywood rebound boards. The Super Rebound 8 fencing system uses twin horizontal 8mm wires, and the Rebound 6 system uses twin horizontal 6mm wires. The lower 1.2 metres of the fence has a 50mm x 66.6mm mesh pattern. This robust rebound mesh acts as a wooden rebound board in terms of quality but has many advantages over wooden boards.

Typically one of the major stumbling blocks during the planning of sports courts is the noise during play. Our sports fencing systems have been developed to overcome the rattle that so many residents object to. Every 200mm to the lower 1.2m high impact area ensures minimum movement between the panel and post with fixings. Furthermore, each fixing uses a synthetic EPDM insert to insulate the panel from the post and reduce noise by circa 29%.

The junior goal is available with or without a basketball unit, placed on the fence line or mounted on a steel arm. Designed to be a continuation of the perimeter fence of the sports area or may also be used to form part of a goal wall. Available in various heights, up to 4.5m with a recess which can be defined, depending on what is required to be stored.

MUGA Goal End Finish

All Zaun posts/panels/gates and painted auxiliary components (for example, clamp-bars, slide bolts etc.) benefit from a protective zinc layer and electrostatically applied polyester powder coating to BS1722 p16. Care is taken with pre-treatment to ensure sound adhesion between the zinc and paint layers. In a UK C1 environment, as defined in ISO 12944 p2, this should ensure a useful life expectancy of the fence of at least 15-20 years. Life expectancy in all environments can be extended by maintaining the fencing with regular washing. Useful life will be reduced if the fencing is damaged. Any coating damage should be repaired to reduce the effect on useful life.

Enhanced painting systems such as marine coatings are also available for improved life expectancy in C2-C5M environments.
