Backstop fences are commonly seen in softball and baseball grounds. They help a lot in protecting the spectators from the balls flying in the air and blocking their path to the stands. They are mostly made of chain links and very tall in their height. The topmost part of these fences is mostly curved towards the inner part of the field or towards the playing area. This curved top structure helps in stopping the pop-up balls from going towards the stands over the top of the back stop fence.

There is even an option to add a type of vinyl coating fabric to the back stop, but in most cases, it isn’t used as it is known for blocking the sight line of the fence. Being one of the best fence companies in Michigan we have successfully provided service all throughout the City Of Detroit and its suburbs for more than a decade. Fence Company Detroit can help you in the whole installation process of the best backstop fences for your project without digging a hole in your pocket.
