Heras Ballcourt systems are likely to take more physical punishment that any type of fence. The initial selection of construction materials and design is crucial to the success of the overall project. Heras uses robust materials throughout its systems to ensure that they will withstand the general ‘wear and tear’ to which ballcourt systems are subjected.
DETAILED CAD DESIGN
Heras has used extensively its in-house CAD system and computerised wind-loading models to develop a range of systems that offer ideal solutions to any ballcourt fencing requirement. Every last detail has been considered to ensure that installation of the system will be as trouble free as possible.
Our aim in developing these systems has been to make it as simple as possible for the end client, or his nominated specifier, to obtain a complete ball-court fencing solution. There is no need for them to source individual components and work out how they fit together….we have already done that, bringing to bear our vast experience with this type of product.
SO MUCH CHOICE IN DESIGN
Whether you are wanting a five a side court with kickboards or double skin for adjacent multi use courts, Heras have the solution. You have the choice of two panel options, the Multi mesh rebound panel, or the Pallas panel. Also available with both systems are fixing brackets for kickboard, goal recesses, and spectator rail, as well as single and double leaf gates.
OPTION 1 – THE MULTI-MESH PANEL SYSTEM
The system comprises Pallas above the 2.0m high Combination Multi-mesh Rebound Panel. Pallas panels are manufactured using 6.00 mm diameter vertical wires and twin 8.00 mm horizontal wires, forming a 200 x 50 mm mesh. The 2.0m Combination Multi-mesh Rebound Panel is similar to the Pallas Panel with additional horizontal 8mm wires to increase strength over the lower 1.2m.
SOME OF THE MANY BENEFITS OF USING HERAS ‘MULTI-MESH’ REBOUND PANELS
WHY CHOOSE THE HERAS REBOUND PANEL?
When Heras came up with the rebound panel as an alternative to timber boards, we knew we had hit on a brilliant design. Because of this, we feel this makes us the leading manufacturer in the current market- place.
Heras have a team of dedicated design engineers who are constantly striving to conform to all relevant standards to ensure our rebound panel is the safest, strongest, most secure there is.
Unlike chain link and weld mesh rolls. The rebound panel will not loose its shape. It is capable of taking many years of continuous sporting action.
Designed to provide a perfect ‘rebound surface’, with the ends of the mesh covered by a flat bar, thus making a flush internal play area.
Multi mesh panels can be fitted to both sides of the post where a fence is dividing two courts therefore providing a rebound surface to each court.
With mesh rebound panels, visibility into the court is unimpaired. There are no “blind spots” of hiding places.
Mesh rebound panels can be coated in a variety of colours, to match or contrast with the upper mesh, and with the environment..
The anti-rattle clip is designed to reduce noise between panel and post whilst the court is in use.
The Heras rebound panels are specially designed to be the strongest, most rigid panels available for this purpose.
EASE OF MAINTENANCE
Mesh panels are virtually maintenance free.
OPTION 2 – THE PALLAS PANEL SPORTS SYSTEM
The system utilises the Pallas panel. Pallas panels are manufactured using 6.00 mm diameter vertical wires and twin 8.00 mm horizontal wires, forming a 200 x 50 mm mesh. As with the multi-mesh system, these are also available in 3m, 4m and 5m high.
SPECIFICATION DETAILS AND DRAWINGS – BOTH OPTIONS
FURTHER FACILITIES AVAILALBLE FOR BOTH OPTIONS
By their very nature, ball-courts are generally flat, but often a very gentle gradient is required to assist drainage. This gradient can be achieved using the Heras systems, utilising standard posts, but stepping panels to set distances – details can be provided on request.
It is possible for the multi-mesh panels to be fixed to both sides of the post, where a fence is dividing two courts. This provides a rebound surface to each court.
Both the Pallas panel system and the single skin multi-mesh system are available with ‘universal’ fixing brackets that facilitate the attachment of timber kick boards along the bottom of the fence. The brackets can accommodate boards between 150mm and 350mm in height, and a thickness of up to 50mm. The kick board is fitted in front of the mesh.
GOAL RECESS OPTION
The Heras systems incorporate a standard option for goal recess areas, utilising smoothly rounded cover plates.
This system comprises of a 1.0m high panel, which can be either the Pallas panel or the multi-mesh panel, with posts at 2.5m centres. It is finished off with a Top rail giving the overall height of 1.2m high. It can be installed to blend in along side both styles of ball-courts.
Heras has designed single-leaf and double-leaf gates to fit as seamlessly and unobtrusively into the fence line as possible. Single gates are nominally 1.2m wide and 2.0m high. Double leaf gates are nominally 3.0m wide and 3.0m high. These standard gates are ideal whether the fence around them is 3.0m, 4.0m, or 5.0m high.
