Horse racing is officially the 2nd largest sport in Britain in terms of TV audiences, revenue and attendance. At present we are in challenging global economic times however horse racing is growing in popularity with attendances rising year on year
One of the reasons for this is that racecourses have been proactive in trying to increase attendance numbers by appealing to a wider audience. They have achieved this staging various forms of entertainment alongside a typical days racing. E.g. introduction of themed race days, family fun days, corporate events and most recently music events/concerts following a day's racing.
The racecourses have a duty to cater for the safety of the members of the public along with the safety of the horses and their staff. Portable picket fencing can be used as a general barrier to enclose hospitality/corporate areas and also for temporary walkways. This enables race goers to be contained safely within their designated areas. The picket fence is easy to move, quick and easy to install, durable/maintenance free and sections can also be connected together allowing the versatility which venues need more and more as they look to widen their income streams. Whilst some customers require fencing to be temporary so it can be moved and reused, others require fencing to be permanent for which we can supply Permanent Picket Fencing. We have a full range PVC fencing for all barrier needs, including portable and permanent picket, post and rail fencing and portable crowd barriers available. Our PVC fencing can be seen in use on many racecourses, including Beverley, Ripon, Musselburgh and Hamilton. Our current prices for both portable and permanent picket are £55.00 per 6ft section and post and rail fencing starts from £32.00 per 8ft section.
