Selecting the right fencing for Multi Use Games Areas

Published on March 28th, 2022

With more new housing proposals and urban regeneration projects taking place each year, the emphasis on access to play and recreation facilities has grown. Whilst Local Authorities and Housing Associations seek to offer facilities such as play areas and sport courts for various sports, finding enough space to incorporate a multitude of sports is challenging irrespective of the financial implications.

Proving to be a popular choice with local authorities and contractors is the installation of MUGA courts. A Multi Use Games Area offers children the opportunity to play a range of sports on one court, reducing the amount of area needed to provide various play and sporting facilities and providing a more cost effective solution.

However, maintaining the longevity of these facilities for generations to come requires a good fencing solution. MUGAs have to withstand considerable ball impact in daily use as well as being occasionally subject to misuse and vandalism. As such, choosing a robust MUGA walling system, particularly at points of highest impact, is key to long term value for money, as well as being a safer health and safety solution.

Choosing the right fencing for a Multi Use Games Area can be at times confusing, Steelway Fensecure have been advising, designing, manufacturing and installing MUGAs for over 20 years, ensuring that the functionality, safety, economics and aesthetics of the fencing systems are taken into consideration to make a real difference to the success of your project.

Here at Steelway we work with our clients during the planning stages of project specification, to ensure the right balance of price to specification ratio is achieved. Rectifying poor specification later can prove costly in the long term life of your Multi Use Games Areas.
