Zaun’s roof netting is ideal for use above MUGA’s (Multi Use Games Areas)that require ball retention, such as a roof top MUGA, or for pitches or courts in areas where balls leaving the area could cause problems for the surrounding area.
The netting roof can be fitted directly to the top of the steel fencing or can be supplied with netting vertical sides above the steel fence to increase the height of the roof.
The netting is attached to tensioned cables running across the court. The cables require carefully designed posts as the loads imposed can be very high. With some basic details of your site; size and height, Zaun can calculate the tension required in cables and posts sizes and quickly let you know if the scheme is feasible. We can let you know how much sag to expect.
We will design for maximum longlevity, where the court layout allows we will reinforce the netting where it contacts the net, this will increase the life of the netting. The cables will be plastic coated to reduce damage to the net from rubbing with the wires.The knotless netting is hard wearing and has a breaking strain of approximately 125kg (3mm) per mesh but is still soft to the touch.
Roof netting is ideal to be used to complement our range of sports fencing products including Duo Sports, Super Rebound & Tennis, which enhance the sports pitch and completes a full ball retention pitch or court.
The sports that are typically played on the MUGA will determine the size of netting that is required. For ball games such as football or basketball, 3mm diameter mesh netting with 100mm x 100mm apertures would be suitable.
Both netting types are manufactured with high tenacity polypropylene and UV protected and weather resistant. The edges are reinforced and stitched with a 5-7mm cord around the full perimeter of the net, which has overlocked edges to provide additional strength and durability.
Netting can be supplied in green, black, white.
Roof netting can be added to an existing MUGA, but typically it would require the posts to be replaced or additional posts installed outside the existing fence. This is down to the tensioning required to support the netting above, if the posts are only designed to hold the mesh fencing, they may not be strong enough to take the additional weight and load.
