Sports Complex Fencing in Rochester, MN FAQ

What types of sporting fence can I use?

The standard for ball fields has, for a long time, being chain link fencing, and it remains so to this day. Chain link fencing is extremely durable and cost effective for ball fields as well as tennis courts. The size of the mesh between wires usually prevents balls from getting through, thereby protecting audiences. Here at American Fence Company of Minnesota, we recommend GBW chain link fence, as it is smooth and helps prevent accidental cuts.

Chain link also helps supports the windscreen frequently installed around tennis courts in Rochester. CLFMI, the Chain Link Fence Manufacturers Institute, has provided a useful tool for selecting just the right size of post diameter and wall thickness for a given project, taking in to account soil conditions, wind loads, material density, fabric weight, etc. This tool is also useful for designing backstops in Rochester, MN.

If you want a more attractive chain link fence than traditional galvanized, try the vinyl-coated chain link fence, which uses colored coating, available in many choices: light green, dark green, brown, black.

Besides chain link fencing, what types of fence are appropriate for recreational use?

The most common alternative to chain link fencing for recreational applications exists around swimming pools, where many commercial property owners use vinyl fencing or ornamental fencing. This adds security in addition to enhancing an aesthetic. 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 turn to welded wire and woven mesh systems. These use heavy gauge wire in horizontal and vertical formations to create rectangular shapes, often panelized and set between square posts. These are then powder coated with color. These are also often used for pool fences in Rochester, MN.
