Sports Complex Fencing in Cedar Rapids, IA FAQ
What are my options for sports fencing in Cedar Rapids?
Historically speaking, chain link fencing has been the standard for ballfields. It remains the #1 choice today, for a broad variety of reasons — beginning with its extreme durability and cost efficiency. It is also practical for ball field applications, helping protect viewers from fast-moving balls, and preventing the ball from escaping the fielding, which helps out the players. American Fence Company of Cedar Rapids recommends GBW chain link fence, as it is smooth, thereby helping to prevent accidental injuries when people brush against it, such as cuts. Another benefit of chain link sports fencing is the support offered by windscreen. CLFMI, the Chain Link Fence Manufacturers Institute, provides a useful tool for selecting just the quintessential post diameter size and wall thickness for a given project. Wind loads, soil conditions, fabric weight, and material density are also taken into account.
If you want more attractive chain link fencing, we also sell vinyl-coated sports fencing. Colored coating comes in the following: light green, dark green, brown, and black.
In addition to chain link, what are my options on recreational sports fences?
Many commercial property owners use vinyl or ornamental fences for pool fencing. BOCA code requires a maximum of a 4” gap located anywhere along the fence with a minimum height of 6’ tall for public swimming pools. Commercial property owners also use welded wire and woven mesh systems. These systems use heavy gauge wire in horizontal and vertical formations to create rectangular shapes, often panelized and set between square posts. What’s more, they’re often powder coated with color.
