Hockey 400

Zaun’s Hockey 400 has been developed specifically with hockey in mind. The system overcomes the problems with traditional wooden board fencing, which is expensive, needs replacing and creates a lot of noise during play. It uses twin wire 8 mm wires in a close 25 x 200mm mesh pattern to clad the lowest 400 mm of the fence.

This results in an extremely robust section of fence that is able to withstand the cannonball-like impacts that occur during a game of hockey. Measured under the same conditions the noise from ball impact on traditional hockey boards was 97 dB, while Zaun Hockey 400 fencing produced a noise of only 68 dB.

Fixings every 200 mm and synthetic rubber inserts at each fixing virtually eliminate rattle during play. A clamp bar covering the panel ends ensures a safe playing surface with no sharp edges.

Features and benefits:

  • Designed specifically for hockey pitches and reduces cost in comparison to replacing wooden boards.
  • Manufactured with 400 mm of additional twin wire mesh at the bottom of each panel where most ball impacts occur.
  • Each system is supplied with EPDM inserts and fixings every 200 mm to reduce noise from ball impacts from 97 dB to 68 dB.
  • Open mesh formation ensures maximum visibility for spectators.
  • Increases ball retention within the game play area.
