Partnership with Duralock fencing
SUFFOLK FA have partnered with Duralock, the market leading, high performance fencing system providers that deliver in every respect.
With safety and strength at its heart, Duralock Performance Fencing is ideal for all football clubs from the Premier League to grassroots.
Duralock products meet The FA’s ground grading requirements and are available in all sizes to conform to national governing body pitch dimensions, with suitable access points.
Through this partnership affiliated clubs in Suffolk will receive a discount of up to 15 per cent off the recommended retail price of Duralock’s fencing solutions.
There are different options available when it comes to sports fencing as follows:
• Multi-Sport Half-Mesh
Designed specifically for sports clubs, the half mesh design prevents the ball from leaving the field of play. This robust fence is strong enough to withstand heavy treatment, which means no worries about how they will stand up to crowds or spectators.
• Post and Rail
Designed to flex under impact, reducing the risk of injury the post and rail system has the sharp bits cut out too. The concealed fixings and smooth rounded surfaces make the whole system exceptionally safe.
• Spectator Rail
Duralock spectator rail is safe and robust and offers a clear demarcation between spectators and officials. The rail is available in all sizes to conform to national governing body pitch dimensions, with suitable telescopic access points.
All Duralock fencing products are available as permanent, demountable or removable fixtures, which is particularly useful if clubs share their ground with cricket teams during the summer months.
Demountable systems have extended posts that are atheistically the same as Duralock’s permanent systems, but the demountable system enables you to take down your fencing at the end of the season, with caps that can be supplied to cover the sockets when the fencing is removed.
Alternatively, specially developed ‘feet’ for two or three metre sections are available for temporary boundaries that can be moved and stored, making them ideal for multi-use sports facilities.

Suffolk FA Football Development manager Jodie Allard said: “We are really pleased to be able to announce our partnership with Duralock Fencing, which I am sure will benefit Suffolk clubs who are looking to upgrade the facilities at their ground.
“For any clubs looking to access new or replacement fencing, there may be grants available for grassroots and National League System clubs support through the Football Foundation to support them towards the cost of this.
“I would recommend any interested clubs to get in touch to understand what support is available to purchase new fencing through this exciting partnership.”
Matt Bartle, Managing Director of Duralock, said: “As a company we always look to work alongside and partner with forward thinking and progressive organisations, hence we’re delighted to formalise this arrangement with the Suffolk FA.
“All our systems have been independently tested and certified for use across the football pyramid, whether it be for demarcation, RESPECT or as a pitch barrier as described in The FA National League Ground Grading documents.
“As a company we pride ourselves on all our barrier solutions being environmentally friendly, safe, and cost effective. We look forward to working with the Suffolk FA, affiliated clubs and leagues as this partnership develops.”
