Sports Pitch Fencing | Sportif Sports Mesh Fencing | Zaun Ltd

09. Sportif

The Sportif sports pitch fencing is a unique mesh configuration commonly found in sports MUGA and outdoor sports applications in France & throughout Europe.

The Sportif is designed with a unique 150mm x 150mm mesh pattern at the top and a 50mm x 150mm open mesh configuration typically at the bottom 1.2-metre high impact zone. The open mesh pattern at the top of the panel provides more visibility to spectators while still increasing ball retention.

Each Sportif sports pitch fencing panel is manufactured with 8mm dual horizontal wires and sandwiches single vertical wires providing a rigid and strong fencing panel. With fixings, every 200mm to the lower, high impact areas of the fencing and rubber inserts at each fixing, rattle is virtually eliminated during play. In addition, clamp bars covering panel ends to ensure a safe playing surface with no sharp edges.

Duo Sports Lite sports mesh fencing is available with gates designed to suit the fence line and can be supplied in your choice of RAL colours that match your organisation, club or team colours.

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.
