Arena fencing is essential for keeping the events and people within safe. Arenas are used for a variety of sporting events, trade fairs, music concerts, theater productions, circus shows, and other public events. Because of the popularity of such events, the number of people involved, the work required, and the financial obligations involved, security is absolutely necessary.
Installing the right type of arena fencing keeps members of the public who have not gained admission out of the area. It prevents uninvited guests from interrupting visitors or staff and protects spectators from things like flying balls and other projectiles.
With such a variety of uses, arena fencing is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Sporting events require athletic fencing to protect spectators without impeding their vision. A concert arena needs a fence that protects performers without preventing attendees from actually participating in the experience.

Chain Link Arena Fencing
Durable, versatile, affordable, and low maintenance, chain link fencing is the most common type of fence. The diamond-shaped holes ensure visibility, security, and crowd control.
Chain link fences are available in several styles depending on the aesthetic preferences you have. Galvanized chain link is the most common chain link fencing. While regular steel rusts, galvanized steel does not. Galvanized steel is coated in zinc to provide protection from rust — and it looks nicer.
Alternatively, vinyl or PVC coating is also gaining in popularity. Vinyl coating is generally more visually appealing than galvanized chain link fencing, but it offers the same level of protection. The biggest advantage is the variety of colors available to make your arena fencing more attractive. However, vinyl coated chain link is more expensive than a galvanized coating.
Athletic fences come in many styles, depending on the needs of the sport and spectators. From school grounds to professional sports arenas, quality athletic fencing can add beauty and value to your property while keeping the grounds secure for everything from a football field to a baseball diamond, a basketball court to an outdoor sports complex.
Athletic fencing is essential for controlling crowds, dividing space, directing traffic, and keeping the venue secure — including protecting spectators from sports equipment. Chain link, iron, and temporary fencing are all available solutions, depending on the preferences and layout of your facility. The most popular choice for most field fences is chain link because it is easy to repair and maintain.
Iron fencing, however, is often used as a decorative fence around the outside of the athletic arena’s fencing. Iron fences go through a comprehensive process of surface preparation, coating, and heat curing. Every layer increases durability and sturdiness to ensure your fence will remain standing for many decades.
Ornamental iron fences provide a decorative yet durable fencing option for the outside of athletic fences. Made of custom carbon steel and/or aluminum, these fences are available in a wide range of styles and designs. Our ornamental iron fences are made from quality materials and skillfully crafted to meet each customer’s design specifications.
In a baseball park, athletic fencing (generally chain link) separates the dugout from the bleachers and acts as a backstop. Chain link fences can also mark the outfield’s outer edge. Sports netting is placed around sports fields or courts to protect spectators from the ball and keep it in play. Athletic fences can also form a spectator railing, such as along the side of a running track.
Welded Wire Mesh Arena Fencing
Welded wire mesh is another great arena fencing material. The wires are welded together to form a grid of square-shaped holes. The wires are thick, secure, and galvanized to prevent rust. Welded wire mesh fences are often used industrially because they are sturdier than chain link and work well for specific arena fencing requirements.
When security is a big concern, welded wire mesh does a better job of keeping intruders out while still allowing plenty of viewing. Additionally, welded wire mesh is also an ideal athletic fence when heavier balls are used for the sport. Repeated hits on a chain-link fence can damage it over time; welded wire mesh can stand its ground.
Industrial fencing adds privacy, security, and value to a property. It can also be used for tennis court fences and other athletic field enclosures and backstops.

Temporary Arena Fencing
Not all fences need to be permanent. Many arenas host more than one type of event, including trade shows, concerts, and other live events. Rather than having to figure out the logistics and requirements for an event and the arena fencing requirements for it, temporary fencing is a great alternative.
Companies that provide temporary fencing offer the design, installation, and removal of:
- Fencing panels
- Low-profile weighted bases
- In-ground fencing
The most widely used temporary fences are chain link temporary panels. They are portable and lightweight on top of being sturdy. They can also be arranged in a variety of configurations to suit any layout you have in mind for the event. High-quality temporary fencing and barricades provide dependability to get the job done efficiently and effectively before your event. A variety of fencing sizes and styles ensures success, no matter how big or small the job.
