Rugby Pitch Fencing – Grasshoppers Rugby Club
Perimeter Solutions Limited and CLD Fencing Systems protect Grasshoppers Rugby Club with their dedicated Rugby Pitch Fencing and Gate Systems
When Hounslow Council submitted plans for a new £10 million grassroots sports ground they wanted to create a future proof training ground that would include the relocated Grasshoppers Rugby Club. Design work started in 2016; with CLD Fencing Systems engaging with Pick Everard to develop a system of Rugby Pitch Fencing for the project.
Allan Cowie, regional director at Pick Everard, said at the time: “These proposed new facilities will provide Grasshoppers RFC the opportunity to strengthen and grow their current rugby and netball specialisms.”
“The planning process to date has been challenging due to the shared use of the site with a proposed new free school but we are excited to be working on this leisure project for Hounslow Borough Council through our framework with them.”
To create a safe environment the sports fencing needed to provide a ball stop capability along the sports pitches. Ball Stop Netting at 6m was selected for the project, offering the highest standards of protection for vehicles and houses in the neighbouring areas.
Work began on site in 2017, when Dawnus Construction were appointed as the main contractors. The 1400m2 project features a new clubhouse, natural and artificial sports pitches, three netball courts that can be used as MUGAs, as well as a car parking area.
Perimeter Solutions Limited was contracted in 2018 to install the specified sports fencing systems. As a CLD Fencing Systems Approved Contractor they worked with a series of fencing systems including, Ball Stop netting; Dulok Rebound and the Lockmaster Swing Gates.
Roderick Parrish, Director at Perimeter Solutions Limited said, “We have been working with CLD Fencing Systems for many years. This project was like many others where we needed a bespoke fencing solution to address on-site challenges.”
“I’m really proud of the final project and the work carried out by our team of installers. It defines how we as a company can deal with the ‘out-of-the-ordinary’ requirements and deliver to the clients specific requirements.”
From Rugby Fencing to Football Pitches, CLD Fencing Systems range of sports fencing is designed to not only think about the safety of the players but the spectators as well. That is why from Premier League to Grassroots Clubs our sports fencing systems are specified around the world.
