The sport of rugby has, for around 200 years, been hugely popular in schools, colleges and clubs across the UK. And for 35 of those years, we’ve been proud to carry out professional rugby goal post installation to enable players to get the very best out of the game.
Rugby is a fantastic sport for encouraging young people to play as a team, while staying fit and active, not to mention having fun. So, with Spring now here, we look forward to some of the sunnier months of the 2019/20 rugby season and matches aplenty as we head towards summer.
If you’re looking for professional rugby goal post-installation, you might be wondering what types of rugby goal post are available. The most common are made from aluminium or steel and can be tailored to suit your budget and requirements. Both have some excellent plus points, which include the following:
Aluminium Rugby Posts
- Easy to move
- Ideal for enclosed areas
- Longer lasting as they can withstand erosion
- Heights range from 6.4 metres to 16.8 metres high
Steel Rugby Posts
- Heavier type of rugby post
- Galvanised to resist rusting in poor weather conditions
- Heavyweight nature makes them more resilient to vandalism
- Cheaper than the aluminium alternative
- Sold as a set of four uprights and two crossbars, in heights ranging from 6.3 metres to 12.1 metres high
A rugby goal post which is up to nine metres high might be used for schools and clubs, while the higher ones are more for professional play and larger competitions.
When you have discussed your rugby goal post options and found a solution which is right for your requirements and budget, it’s time to think about installation.
Our team of experts can come to your school or club and fit rugby goal posts which will give you complete peace of mind that they are set up properly, safe, reliable and will be as long-lasting as possible.
The most common way to install a rugby goal post is by using ground sleeves which are concreted into place beneath the ground, with the uprights placed inside them. The crossbar is then bolted in at the appropriate height.
If you’re looking for a less permanent solution, however, hinge adaptors can be used instead, which means the rugby goal posts can be easily taken down and stored away, should you need to. A member of our team will show you how to do this easily and confidently.
Post padding can also be placed around the rugby goal posts for additional safety and is available in different heights. In fact, most schools and clubs are legally obliged to have this in place.
