Spanish term or phrase: cerramiento electrosoldado
This is a document describing the work which is to be carried out on a sports area:
"Se realizará obras de Rehabilitación de esta zona deportiva consistentes en la sustitución de la pista de patinaje por una de mayores dimensiones (aunque no regladas), para practicar fútbol sala, sustituyendo igualmente el cerramiento actual por uno electrosoldado".
Could this simply be electric fencing?
Thanks

(perimeter) fencing (made) from welded fabrication


Explanation:
No, definitely not electric fencing! it refers to the method of manufacture, welding.

I have gone for fencing because your suggestion of electric fencing makes me suppose that the context elsewhere tells you this. However, bear in mind that "cerramiento" can also mean cover / roof of a building. Do they refer somewhere else to this facility as "pista cubierta"?

You are correct, it does not refer to roofing. I can then confirm "fencing", but suggest also the alternative option of "enclosure". Good luck!

Notes to answerer
Asker: Yes, it comes throughout the text. Here's another example, talking about the work they are going to carry out on a sports centre: "La actuación consiste en la sustitución del cerramiento actual que se encuentra en mal estado, por uno más estable que evite la entrada de personas incontroladas y aumente las condiciones de seguridad". And another: "Cerramiento exterior, alumbrado y ajardinamiento" As a result, I have taken "cerramiento" to come from "cerrar", as in "cercado". The case in hand does not mention any sports centre, just "zona deportiva" so I have taken it to be the outdoor sports facilities which are found in each district.
