Top Quality Portable Sport Fencing Installations For Baseball & Softball Outfelds
Measuring your field
We recommend that you mark and measure your outfield prior to actual installation of SportPanel.
Once you have determined the position of home plate and the distance to the outfield fence (generally: 200ft - 32 panels / 250ft - 40 panels / 350ft - 56 panels) we suggest that you mark the end of the foul line where it will intersect with the outfield fence. We also suggest that you mark the outfield fence distance directly in centerfield (in front of home plate).
The SportPanel fencing panels will be positioned in an arc from foul line to foul line, around the centerfield marking (See diagram). We suggest you begin with the fence panels in centerfield and work towards each foul line.
Rotate SportPanel's Technotip folding elbow joints so that the panel's feet are facing outside of the field of play (i.e. away from home plate).
Position each fence and place 2 anchoring wickets or sand bags on the protruding feet. The wickets will prevent panels from tipping forward and will provide additional stability to fence sections on windy days.
Insert flexible foam connector pieces into the top rail of each section, between two adjacent panels. This will keep panels in line, yet allow sections to disengage and fall flat on impact.
To lock panels from falling down and to turn off the breakaway system, insert a screw or pin into the pre-drilled hole in the folding TechnoTip elbow. This will prevent panels from disengaging and provide additional stability on windy days.
Black out centerfield panels & Foul Poles
If you ordered black out centerfield panels to aid in ball visibility, position these panels in the center of the outfield, directly across from home plate and behind the pitchers mound.
Position foul poles against SportPanel at the intersection between the foul line and the outfield fence. Simply extend the outfield fence support leg (like a ladder) and allow the panel to freestand. Wickets or sand bags may be used to support each foul pole if required.
