Context

Sports fencing manufacturer, Zaun, manufactured and supplied huge 8m-high steel mesh panels for the University of Nottingham's lacrosse sportsfield. 

The system was installed at Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus by Leigh-based Dawn Fencing Ltd.

Products supplied

The specially made lacrosse fencing is a variant of Zaun’s Duo8 Sports fence.

The central 30m behind each goal end of the playing field includes three different panel specifications to suit play.

The bottom 3m comprises special lacrosse panels with dense 50 x 33mm mesh of 6mm vertical wires at 50mm centres and dual 8mm horizontal wires at 33mm centres.

Dawn also installed 3-6m high Zaun Super Rebound panels with 50 x 67mm centres, which are highly durable, low maintenance, graffiti-proof and offer great rebound properties similar to a wall.

The top 2m has a 50 x 200mm mesh pattern purely for added ball retention and safety of passers-by using nearby university buildings.

Lacrosse team

The university fields six teams across men’s and ladies in British Universities & Colleges Sport competitions with matches most weeks, and development teams entered in beginners' tournaments.

A mixed team also competes in a regional league and enjoys a tour to Liverpool.
