    High Quality Mesh Rebound Fencing System For Sports

    Ball stop fencing designed specifically for sports applications such as football, tennis and hockey

    Alexandra Security Protek 868 Rebound mesh sports fencing feature panels with tighter spaced wire centres towards the bottom of each section. As balls most commonly strike the lower parts of boundary fencing, the extra wires create an area of increased rebound properties, meaning balls bounce back from the fence rather than stopping dead. The tight spacing between the horizontal and vertical wires can also prevent balls from escaping the arena, including when playing cricket or tennis. Good visibility for spectators is also ensured thanks to the increased spacing of the higher wires.

    Ideal For Both School And Multi-Sports Use

    Protek 868 Rebound Fencing is the ideal solution when looking for a fence that will provide boundary protection around a school playground or sports field, as well as basketball courts, 5-a-side football pitches and hockey courts. The 868 system can also be seamlessly combined with matching gates and sports accessories such as recessed goals and basketball hoops. Here at Alexandra Security we can design and supply a complete sports fencing system for your specific application.

    Available In Multiple Heights

    The standard Protek 868 Rebound panel is 3.0m high. By combining multiple panels, a fence up to 6m high can be constructed using secure clamp bars and made-to-measure posts. 868 refers to the mesh wire size, in this case, 6mm vertical and 8mm horizontal. Easy to install, the mesh panels can also be stepped, helping the fence line to follow the profile of the ground. If you require a greater height than 6m, for example in urban residential areas, these can be specified on request. Contact our expert team to discuss your specific sports fencing needs.

    Weather Protected For A Long-Lasting Finish

    Each Protek 868 Rebound panel comes supplied in a galvanised finish for long lasting protection from the elements. In addition, a powder coating is also applied, with the standard colour being green. However, we understand that many of our customers like to customise their sports fencing to match their team or brand colours, so we also can powder coat to any RAL colour. Our standard 15 year product guarantee also covers all our sports mesh fencing systems.

    Posts, Clamps and Fixings

    The posts and full-length clamp bars that Alexandra Security Limited offers provide a fixing system which secures the panels but allows for variations. The system is easy to install and allows the panels to be stepped, helping the fence line to follow the contours of the ground. With the vandal resistant security fixings this post and clamp system provides a higher level of security than the traditional clip system.

    Protek 868 Rebound - Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a MUGA pitch?

    MUGA is an acronym for Multi-Use Games Area. Just as the name suggests, these types of pitches are suitable for multiple sports that can all take place on the same pitch.

  • For mesh fencing around a MUGA pitch, how should the mesh and gates normally be installed?

    The mesh on a MUGA is usually installed facing the inside of the MUGA to allow footballs for example to rebound, and the gates hung on the back of the posts, flush to the front, opening away from the pitch 180 degrees to reduce the hinge gaps and again prevent any unusual rebounds. These are recommendations however and layouts and details are down to the choice and specification of the installer.

  • What is the best type of fencing for a tennis court?

    We recommend Protek 868 Rebound fencing, due to it’s excellent durability and ball rebound properties.

  • What size are the apertures on Protek Rebound Sports Fencing?

    The tighter spaced wires on the bottom 1.2m of the mesh panel have an aperature (spacing) of 66.6mm x 50mm. Above 1.2m the wire spacing increases to create apertures that are 200mm x 50mm.

  • What is the recommended height for a football pitch fence?

    The FA recommended fence height on all sides of the 3G FTP is 4.5m high. Viewing areas should be included on all 3G FTP’s and have perimeter fencing 1.2m high, rising to 2m behind the goals and 3m away from the touchline.

  • Why is Protek Rebound Fencing recommended over Chainlink Fencing?

    Our Protek Rebound system is a rigid mesh panel system with the bottom 1.2m of the panel at 66.6mm x 50mm wire apertures, it is very robust and durable making it ideally suited to high impact ball areas. Chain link is very susceptible to damage from any force making it an unsuitable choice for ball game areas where the fence is likely to be regularly impacted by balls.
