Generations of Expertise
Athletic facilities managers have a lot at stake. They’re trusted to be good stewards of the public’s money. Citizens count on them to get projects finished on schedule.
When you’ve got a controlled budget and a restrictive schedule, you want contractors with decades of experience. Beitzell Fence’s teams have seen it all. Unexpected roadblocks can derail an inexperienced crew. Unseasoned designers may not know how to handle the unique circumstances of each customer. That could mean delays, cost overruns, damages — all things facilities managers can’t afford.
Excellence in Service
At Beitzell, quality service is in our blood. We rely on strong word of mouth, so we go the extra mile to make sure our clients are satisfied with the new look of their athletic facilities.
Golf Course Netting
Every golf course needs netting to keep golf balls from flying out beyond property lines. Because not every player is an expert, they won’t all keep their balls right on course. You need a wide range of coverage at a reasonable price. Netting solves these issues.
A high-flying golf ball can easily sail over a standard fence. Golf balls can hurt people outside the course or damage property. A typical male golfer’s drive has an average speed of 132 mph!
That means you need to worry not only to the borders of the golf course, but also the driving range or smaller areas where players practice their swing.
You’ll want to use golf impact netting around your golf course for close range shots. The quality of the netting is going to make a difference when the ball hits the net at high speed on driving ranges or near a tee. Nylon is the most common, though polyester is considered more UV resistant. Either material is very durable and can hold up well for years under sun exposure. However, a customized net can add an extra layer of nylon if you think your netting will be taking on numerous close-range, high-impact hits.
You can also customize mesh size. The most common size is about 3/4 inches. Your size will depend on how much impact you think your netting is going to have.
This netting keeps long-distance shots from flying beyond property lines. The width on the mesh can be larger here due to lesser impacts. For the most part, about 1 inch is all you need for mesh width, though it can also be customized. This type of netting can be constructed at various heights to accommodate players with powerful swings.
When you want to provide an area for players to practice their swings, a golfing cage is a perfect choice. These are very customizable and can be designed in compact ways or in more permanent setups for professional courses. They employ the same high-quality netting mentioned above, and we can customize the shape. They’re also built for high-impact hitting, so golfers can go full speed without anyone in the vicinity getting hurt. Consider using a steel framing so the cage has long-term durability outdoors.
Baseball Field Netting and Fencing
You need to ensure the safety of players and spectators at your baseball diamond. The best way to do that is with a thorough fencing and netting plan.
Backstops and Fences
Our high-strength backstops keep errant balls from reaching the stands and spectators. You don’t need to worry that a wild pitch or foul ball will injure someone in your stands.
Backstops are critical for reducing your facility’s liability.
Backstops are customizable by shape and size. We can build them as large as needed for a full field or small enough for a simple practice space.
Fencing is a necessary component of any baseball field. It defines the field of play. Without it, you can’t even hit a home run.
We can build your ballfield’s fence custom to fit your unique needs. From height to wire gauge to coating, it’s all available. We can build with privacy slats to keep out distractions. We can add padding so players don’t get hurt if they slam into the fence concentrating on a fly ball. Whatever your needs, we will work to meet them.
Netting adds another major safety feature to your field. With netting, the cost of coverage goes way down, allowing you to extend protection. Not only does netting around the field keep spectators safe, it also makes ball retrieval much easier.
Use of netting has expanded greatly at parks across the country. Facilities managers have become more concerned than ever with spectator safety, and they’re turning in large numbers to netting to ease their minds.
Baseball is a tough game to find space to practice. Pitching and batting at full speed can be dangerous. You need to minimize the danger as much as possible by containing the action.
Batting cages reduce risk. The cage limits batting practice to just the batter and the pitcher. There’s no chance of outsiders getting struck by a bat or ball. We can also drape netting within the cages to deaden ball impacts, reducing ricochets.
Tennis Court Fencing
Tennis courts require special fencing accommodations. A tennis court fence needs to be higher (at least 8 feet). It needs to withstand frequent impacts without warping. It needs gates that fit with the higher fence. It needs a mesh that’s small enough that balls don’t get lodged in it.
We can take care of these issues and more. Our decades of experience fencing tennis courts mean we know all the requirements for tournament-ready facilities.
Aside from the fencing itself, tennis courts need extras. You don’t want spectators behind the players, distracting opponents, so you’ll need privacy screens.
To get further use out of a court, you can attach backstops to the fence. These faux walls allow solo players to practice without having to chase balls all over the court.
