Explore the reasons why fan experience should influence your choices regarding which fencing to install.
I am looking for a fence to install on my baseball field. Will fans care what type of commercial fencing I use?
The short answer is “yes.” While fencing selection may seem like a minor matter, it is absolutely critical to ensuring that your fans have a good experience. Your choice of commercial fencing material affects the beauty, safety, and overall enjoyment of every single person in the stands. Thus, it is critical that you find a reliable commercial fence company that can help you choose the materials you need to ensure:
Security for All Spectators
The most important element of a commercial chain link fence is the ability to protect your fans against rogue baseballs, which can cause serious injury if they strike someone at high speed. Therefore, your first order of business should be to make sure your fence is capable of stopping such baseballs, along with bats, debris, and anything else that might make its way from the field into the stands. This means ensuring that the fence extends sufficiently far enough to block anything that is launched from the field. It also means choosing fencing that is sturdy enough to shake off high impacts for years on end.
In addition to keeping fans safe during the game, a high security fence will keep your field safe from thieves and other criminals. While this does not directly affect fan safety, as criminals rarely try to steal from you during a game, it does affect the way fans feel. If they see you have a secure, sturdy fence, they will feel safer during the game, and will thus enjoy it more.
While providing a high security fence for your spectators, you must make sure that the commercial fencing does not disrupt their view of the game. While chain link fences are relatively easy to see through, you should choose the type with relatively large spaces between the links to ensure everyone can see the game well. You must also steer clear of materials that are excessively shiny, as they can reflect light back at the stands, harming fans’ eyes and making it harder for them to focus on the game. As the world’s most popular stadiums and fields attest, if you want fans to have a good time, you must guarantee that nothing stands in the way of seeing the game.
Picture the most beautiful baseball fields in the country. Now tell me: how many of them have rusty or decaying fences? Fans do not appreciate deteriorating fencing. It makes your field look old and worn, and gives them the impression that you do not care about providing a good facility for them or your players. For this reason, you need to choose commercial fencing that is made from highly resistant materials, which can avoid rust and other forms of decay with minimal upkeep.
