Gainsborough School: MUGA, London legacy
As part of the continuing London legacy, a new MUGA complex has been provided for Gainsborough Primary in Hackney; the school has a strong emphasis on sport and takes part in various inter-school leagues. The playing fields, which are sited adjacent to Here East in the North West of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, are accessed across a footbridge over the River Lee.
Lang+Fulton supplied their MUGA fencing system, manufactured from robust Verona grating panels and 100x50mm RHS posts in 3 metre and 2 metre heights for different areas. The rigid grating panels have a level inner surface and are mounted flush to the posts providing an exceptionally even rebound with panel to post connections designed to avoid finger traps and extrusions.
The fencing surrounds and divides three separate playing areas with both astroturf and polymeric surfaces, which are accessed and interconnected through a series of 7 double leaf gates.
The panels and posts were hot-dip galvanized and matt polyester powder coated RAL 9007 for a maintenance-free finish with optimum resistance to corrosion.
