Sports and Athletic Field Fences
When it comes to building fences for athletic applications there is a different standard in durability and function than regular fences. If you’re looking for a contractor to install an athletic fence here are a few things to consider.
What will be the main function of the fence? Are you going to be using it to enclose a field or will it be used as a backstop? These are important questions because different uses can call for a different gauge of wiring.
For example, a backstop fence would use a much thicker gauge wire than a homerun fence. The thicker wire means it will take longer to wear down and will have a better chance of standing the test of time.
A home run fence, on the contrary, sees little wear and is more of a boundary marker, not requiring as heavy of a gauge of wire.
Pacific Fence & Wire can also coat our chain link fences with different colors so that we can match the look of your facility. Don’t forget: We also install net systems as well, which will act as safety barriers and backstops.
Long story short: We are Portland’s leader in sports fencing! See for yourself by browsing some of the images from our recent installations. Or give us a call today for a free estimate.
And remember: We work on both private and municipal sporting fences.
Form and Function
Functionality is important — but so is aesthetics. When we coat a chain-link fence to match the look and feel of your facility — or the colors of the home team! — it looks fantastic. But there’s more to it than meets the eye.
A protective coating can also act as a moisture barrier. Sports fencing has a greater risk of water damage because of its continuous outside exposure to Pacific Northwest rain as well as sprinkler systems that come on regularly during the summer.
We’re happy to explain some of the options for protective coatings so that you can rely on your fence for a long time. For example, if you are enclosing an athletic court that is near your home you may want to use a vinyl coated chain link fence rather than a traditional galvanized fence. This will give your fence a cleaner and more professional look which may mesh better with your home.
Be sure to ask your contractor about the various protective coatings that can be added to your chain link fence. It could mean the difference between a rusty, brittle fence, and a long-lasting one.

Choosing the Right Fencing Contractor
When choosing a contractor for your sports fencing project, it is important that they have relevant experience in that field. Due to the high wear and tear of certain athletic field applications — such as those baseball backstops we mentioned above — it is important to make sure that the proper product is used during installation.
