Fencing Showcase: Multi Sport Fencing in the Okanagan

There are many types of fencing out there. Privacy fencing. Security fencing. Decorative fencing. Some fencing is functional too, and sports fences are a good example of that type.

Hockey fences, tennis court fencing, pickle ball fencing. They should all look good, but they also have a very important job to do.

In many cases, sports facility fencing is designed to protect the public and property. Tennis balls, hockey pucks, golf balls and soccer balls can all be moving very quickly, and if it weren’t for the protective fencing around these facilities, injuries or damage could easily result. There's a certain amount of legal liability when things like that happen, so it's always a good idea to make sure you have a fence, and it's in good shape!

Rooftop Fencing in Calgary

Rooftop fencing isn't the most common request in the fence world, but when you've been in the fence business as long as Rite-Way Fencing, you've seen it all! We recently completed a rooftop fencing project in Calgary.

Like most fence projects, this one was unique and interesting, and we delivered a finished product that made this downtown Calgary rooftop safe and secure.

Our welding shop created custom baseplate solutions that allowed our crew to install this fence on an existing wooden walkway and stair structure, and the galvanized chain link fence is durable, will last for many years to come, and does little to impede the views of the Alberta sky and the city skyline.

The professional commercial fence crew that installed this fence paid close attention to aesthetics, since this project was about securing a public area, and we knew that the client needed a fence that would get the job done well, but also look great doing it. 

Fortunately, as a fence manufacturer and a specialist fence contractor, we have the skills and in house experience to tackle projects like these in our stride.
