Zaun handrail meets new FA regulations

folder_openSports & Leisure, Uncategorised

New FA regulations have brought to the fore a new handrail from Zaun Limited, the UK’s leading steel mesh fencing manufacturer and installer.

Zaun has supplied and installed spectator rail mesh fencing to Crawley Down Gatwick Football Club following their promotion in 2011, which meant they had to complete various ground improvements by 31 March 2012 or face automatic relegation at the season’s end.

‘The Anvils’, whose first team play in the Ryman Isthmian League Division One South, turned to Zaun to help them meet the new regulations, which included the installation of a rigid mesh fence with a spectator handrail around the perimeter of the pitch.

Zaun had to adapt its product during the complex installation to maintain the 1.1m height around the whole pitch as ground levels changed.

Crawley Down chairman Brian Suckling said: ‘All clubs playing at this level of football have to comply with these new regulations, so we were delighted to find Zaun to bring our ground up to scratch’.

‘Zaun did a super job under very tight deadlines. Their contracts manager, Steve Hancock visited us at our Haven Sportsfield Ground, took all the site details for manufacture and supervised the installation, which was completed a week ahead of schedule. We are so pleased with the outcome.’

Zaun is one of the most dynamic manufacturers of perimeter protection systems within the UK, with one of the broadest ranges, all covered by an industry-leading 12-year product guarantee. It was the major perimeter security supplier to the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The spectator rails are designed by Zaun to the highest standards improveing safety for both spectators and players. They are made from strong tubular steel with heavy steel welded mesh infil panels. EPDM rubber inserts are used at the fixing points of the panels to the posts to quieten noise from vibration and ball impacts. Advertising boards can also be easily secured.

Gates can also be provided to match in any size for both pedestrian and maintenance equipment access to the pitch.

This system can be used for many other sports facilities where separation of spectators and participants is important.

Zaun manufactures to ISO 9001:2008 standards and is a member of the ethical supply chain initiative, Sedex. It is also a founder member of the Made in Britain campaign, a member of the Perimeter Security Suppliers’ Association, for which Painter is a founding member and director; the Fencing Contractors’ Association, for which Henman is a committee member; and the Sports and Play Construction Association.
