Sports MUGA Fencing

Zaun has always been known within the sports world as one of the pioneers in the UK to change the way that sports pitches were designed. Zaun’s innovative designs and creations at the beginning are still being used today. Zaun has actively moved the industry away from traditional chain link sports pitches to much more rigid and suitable welded mesh fencing systems, which are more commonly used today.

The Zaun welded mesh fencing systems are used to play a huge variety of sports, providing users with improved gameplay experiences and site owners with a sports area that lasts with minimum maintenance, making them ideal for use on Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs)

Fencing Systems for Sports


Zaun provides a range of primary school perimeter fencing systems that have been independently tested and approved by leading industry bodies BRE for LPS1175 and the Police Preferred Specification scheme Secured By Design.

Typically, an SR1 (A1) type fencing system would be most suitable for a school, keeping the school safe and secure whilst still visually appealing without making the fencing look too imposing. But perimeter security fencing should be specified by the threat to the site and delay required.

Fencing Systems for Safeguarding

A school must be as safe and secure as possible with effective access control measures to ensure the movement of people and vehicles is effectively managed and restricted, ensuring the risks to the school are minimised.

Unfortunately, a school can attract a range of unwanted guests, from vandals and thieves to other potential intruders. If access to the site is not adequately managed, people and valuables are at risk. Gates need to be properly locked and monitored with access control measures or an adequate locking system. Access points require a clear and direct path to the main reception for visitors, with the number of access points kept to a minimum so that visitor movement can be controlled.


Playgrounds are an important area for school education, enabling children to play and learn outdoors safely and securely without the risk of accidents occurring. All Zaun playground fencing is manufactured to BS1722 and EN1176 and RoSPA guidelines, ensuring no sharp edges or finger traps for potential accidents.

All our playground fencing is a minimum of 1.0m high and supplied with slow closing gates following EN 1176 to avoid trapping.
