TWO FENCE FOUNDATION OPTIONS FOR GREATER FLEXIBILITY
Under every great SPECTO fence is a great foundation. Grand Slam Safety, LLC will not only design a fence to your needs but, also offers fence foundation options, in partnership with IFS - Modern Pile Technologies, that provide a superior foundation for decades of hassle free use. This is athletic fence installation made easy and on your terms.
Each support pole and foul pole is anchored firmly into the ground by one of two methods.
(Many of our SPECTO Indoor Field Containment Systems can use existing structural supports instead of creating new foundation anchors.)
Helical Shallow Foundations
These premium fence post foundations are installed quickly, without damaging the sod or turf field.
No need to dig ugly holes. No waiting for concrete to cure. These unique, helical-style fence post foundations screw directly into the ground, providing instant support for SPECTO Sport Fencing. They can even be installed indoors or limited access areas.
Foundations are hidden underground during the offseason to accommodate multi-purpose sport fields. These long-lasting, galvanized foundations can also be unscrewed and reinstalled, when field fences need to be moved or redesigned. Grand Slam Safety has partnered with IFS - Modern Pile Technologies to provide fencing foundations specifically engineered to provide superior lateral support — ideal for our high-impact fencing solutions. Install your SPECTO Sport Fence faster, with less mess, and more support using helical shallow foundations.
Concrete foundations are easily installed by a contractor or your grounds crew. These foundations require steel and PVC sleeves to be embedded in the the concrete to accept the support poles which hold up the fence.
Concrete foundation foul pole installation can have either a sleeved or flanged foot, the sleeve offers faster install and removal, but does not allow any adjustment if foundation shifts. The flanged foot allows adjustment to ensure foul pole is plumb.
We recommend letting concrete fence foundation option cure 2-3 weeks before erecting your fencing system.
When support posts are removed, synthetic turf inserts can be placed in each post hole.
