Sports Mesh Fencing | MUGAs | Duo Sports Lite | Zaun Ltd

08. Duo Sports Lite

Zaun’s Duo Sports Lite sports mesh fencing offers the best economical solution for sports pitches and courts using fewer materials in the construction. In addition, this sports mesh fencing system offers a lighter weight, lower-cost alternative to Duo Sports fencing. The Lite version uses the same rubber inserts used in the standard Duo Sports system, and the panels are fixed to the posts every 400mm.

This is ideal for MUGAs and sports pitches where the noise from ball impacts is not likely to cause residents. This lightweight sports mesh fencing panel keeps costs to a minimum, but the dual 6mm or 8mm horizontal wires welded on either side of the 5mm or 6mm single verticals ensure that the system retains the high level of rigidity necessary for ball courts. This produces a 50mm x 200mm mesh pattern that is strong and vandal resistant and offers the best value.

Each double wire sports mesh fencing panel can be cranked inwards to increase ball retention, and the addition of Zaun football goals and basketball units will increase user participation. In addition, a clamp bar covering panel ends ensures a safe playing surface with no sharp edges.

Depending on your requirement, each post can be supplied for dig in-ground, bolted down or cranked over the wall.


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.
