Custom Netting to Cover an Arched Frame - Specialty Nylon Nets

The nylon netting productions that we have available at Gourock.com are used for a very wide variety of unique applications and purposes.  Because our company offers many different netting mesh sizes and twine thicknesses, along with the ability to have specialized shapes and sizes created for your specific job, there are great custom net solutions available for your particular project.

A few weeks ago there was a unique netting production that we supplied that was intended to cover a specialized arch-shaped framing structure that our customer had in his garden.  The framing is built over some garden boxes, and the intention of the netting is to block birds and exclude them from easy access to the growing plants, berries, and fruit.  The way that our customer wished to install the netting was as one continuous netting design that could he could slide over the top of his frame in one piece (pillowcase-style).

The main factors to take into consideration for this custom netting production revolved around the arched/rounded shape of the framing ceiling, as well as our customer's need for an integrated entrance area on one end (for access into the garden).  In addition, we needed to take into account a bit of extra sizing tolerance to the finished netting design so that the one-piece netting design was able to fit over the dimensions of the frame, while not adding too much extra size in order to keep the mesh relatively tight/even while hanging up.  And then finally, since the purpose of the netting is for bird exclusion - the best netting choice requires a combination of a smaller mesh size, without adding a bunch of extra netting weight/thickness.

For this project, the material selection was the #15 X 3/4" DuPont Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting.  This is a 144 lb./tensile strength netting with a 1.8mm twine thickness, black in coloring, and well-prepared for full-time outdoor installations.  Creating the custom production on this netting job was accomplished with a square mesh pattern orientation, along with a 5/16" Dacron Rope Bordering installed to seam all nets together into the final enclosure design.  As you can see from the netting production sketch included below, the dimensions of the arched framing and the entrance area were both specifically created based on our customer's particular sizing needs.  Our customer had forwarded over his measurements of his framing area, along with images of the framing itself - which were very helpful for context and getting the right product designed for him.  Once the quoting process was completed and the order was approved, the fabrication timing on this custom net was about 7 business days (and then it shipped out via UPS Ground).

Thank you again David!  It was great working with you, and we appreciate your business very much!

Gourock.com specializes in custom nylon netting productions that are 100% Made in USA from the highest quality American nylon netting materials and hand-craftsmanship.  If you have unique applications that would benefit from a netting solution, definitely feel free to get in touch with Gourock.com and we can take a look at things for you!

Hemp Trellis Netting and Hemp Drying Nets

Hemp trellis netting and hemp drying nets are available at Gourock.com, and are prepared to your own preferred custom dimensions, directly through our online custom netting calculator. Trellis nets and drying nets for hemp growing and hemp processing are supplied for commercial, industrial, and individual hemp operations and applications. Trellis netting and drying nets are installed in both vertical and horizontal orientations, in both indoor and outdoor locations.

There are 4 recommended netting types and sizes most generally used for commercial hemp trellis purposes, all of which are available according to your own custom sizing.

For most hemp trellis applications, the 4” square mesh size knotted nylon netting is the most fitting selection. There are two twine thicknesses sizes available, which are the #15 (144 lb./tensile) and the #30 (334 lb./tensile). The #15 X 4” square mesh knotted nylon netting is the generally recommended option, with the #30 being selected for high-abrasion or high UV exposure hemp trellis and drying operations.

For hemp netting applications that may require or prefer a smaller mesh size, the 1-3/4” square mesh size knotted nylon netting is the recommended selection. The two twine thicknesses sizes to consider in this case are the #12 (116 lb./tensile) and the #21 (241 lb./tensile). The #12 X 1-3/4” square mesh knotted nylon netting is the generally selected option for smaller mesh preferences, with the #21 being selected for higher-abrasion or higher UV exposure hemp trellis and drying operations.


All are constructed from 100% Made in USA DuPont Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting - and prepared per-order with efficient turnaround timing. 

For customized shape requests, sizing and supply questions, hemp trellis netting quotations, or other particular hemp netting inquiries please feel free to Contact Gourock and we can assist!

Custom Nylon Netting Featuring Tapered Shapes

Gourock.com specializes in supplying custom nets and netting designs that can incorporate specific sizing needs, and many different types of shape characteristics.  We offer a diverse variety of netting mesh sizes and twine thicknesses, so there is almost always a fitting net solution for your needs and particular applications.  Our website conveniently allows for easy ordering of custom-sized nets built to most any dimensions that you need.  In addition, Gourock.com can also supply nets and netting panels that are built with tapered shape requirements, or angled/sloped designs.

Using the highest quality netting material, DuPont type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon, the customized netting panels we supply are hand prepared per-order with quick turnaround, and are 100% Made in USA.  The custom nylon nets that we ship out are built for a wide variety of intended uses and applications, and for customers ranging from private individuals to massive global corporations - as well as universities, municipalities, organizational firms, and professional commercial businesses.  Nylon netting is an excellent solution for many different and unique situations, and with Gourock.com you can have the netting prepared specifically to the sizing you require for your particular job.

Many of the custom nets that we ship out are not only fabricated to unique sizing, but they also feature tapered and angled shape aspects.  Oftentimes the nets that require a tapered or angled shape need to have that specific design to function correctly and fit neatly within non-square spaces.  This is a fairly commonplace situation for a lot of people in all types of different environments.  Some popular uses for tapered nets are installations around sloping rooflines, angled cables or wires, between railings or rafters, within non-square rooms and spaces, and other unique areas. 

Here are a couple of recent examples of some unique custom netting panels that we completed for a pair of appreciated Gourock.com customers.  Both have very different applications for the netting, but have similarities in that the best solution for each is a series of custom nets with tapered edges.

EXAMPLE 1:
Netting Type:  #15 X 3/4" (144 lb./tesnile) DuPont Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon
Construction Details:  Square mesh pattern, 5/16" polyester rope bordered around perimeter, 3 different netting panels that are each built to custom dimensions and with tapered/angled edges.
Purpose:  This netting is installed within a framing structure that our customer constructed in the backyard of their home.  The framing surrounds an area in the backyard that extends out from the house, and the purpose is to contain cats on the property.  The netting was constructed to line-up with the size and slope of the framing design, making it efficient to attach the nets to their specific areas and have a professional fit.




EXAMPLE 2:
Netting Type:  #21 X 3/4" (241 lb./tesnile) DuPont Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon
Construction Details:  Square mesh pattern, 5/16" polyester rope bordered around perimeter, 10 different netting panels that are each built to custom dimensions, with 6 of them requiring tapered/angled edges.
Purpose:  These nets were built to line-up with a series of wires/cables that are installed underneath a ceiling area within a commercial business.  These nets are hong horizontally underneath/between the wires, with a single net per particular segment.  Ceiling nets are typically used to block objects from hitting lighting/electrical/sprinkler aspects, or to keep falling objects from hitting people below.

Skateboard Ramp Netting - Skateboard Barrier Nets

Gourock.com specializes in supplying custom netting productions for a wide variety of unique applications and installations.  Netting is a fantastic solution for many different types of situations in which objects need to be contained within a space (or excluded from entry into an area), as well as instances in which general safety considerations are expected.  At Gourock.com you can order nets directly online that are fabricated to your own particular and specific sizes/dimensions, allowing you the best possible fit and function from the netting within your intended usage space.

We primarily specialize in preparing and supplying customized barrier nets and netting panels from the highest quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon - which is a 100% Made in USA product that we have available in many different mesh size and twine thickness options.  With the DuPont® nylon available from Gourock you are assured a netting product that features very high tensile strengths ratings, maximum abrasion resistance, great ease-of-use, and is very well prepared for full-time UV and moisture exposure.  The nets that we supply are extremely popular for both outdoor and indoor installations, and perform exceptionally well in both environments.

As we have noted throughout the Gourock.com site and our company blog articles, there is a seemingly endless list of popular uses and applications for custom nylon nets, ranging from industrial and professional locations all the way to private residential backyards and garages.  Because the custom nylon nets that we provide are so adaptable to such a wide spectrum of uses and needs, we get to work with people from all types of backgrounds and individual projects.  Here is a summary of a great installation from one of our appreciated customers that needed netting to contain skateboards within a ramp area that they have in their garage.

Situation:  Our customer has a skateboard mini-ramp in their garage in which they wanted to have the option to contain errant skateboards from leaving the immediate ramp area when in use.  A portion of the area (behind the ramp in the garage door) was to have a fixed netting panel that would generally remain in-place full-time, whereas the netting that was to block skateboards on the sides of the ramp would need to be able to behave like a curtain (to slide out of the way when the ramp is not in-use).  Our customer already had some anchor points installed in the garage door area to connect/suspend the stationary net between, and had provided us with his preferred dimensions of netting in order to get the fit and appearance preferred for that aspect of the project.  The stationary net function is to block errant skateboards from flying over the deck and out into the driveway.  For the netting that was to be the side barriers, he used the tensioned-wire approach to achieve the curtain-effect that was preferred.  Using this technique, a 3/16" wire is tensioned between a couple of eyebolts or stout supports, and then the top edge of the netting is clipped to the wire using 1/4" snap-hooks.  This provides a level plane to support the netting very well across the length - and also allows the opportunity to slide the netting back-and-forth (curtain-style) to expand or contract it as preferred.

Netting Type:  These nets were constructed from #36 X 1-3/4" (2.5mm, 381 lb. tensile) DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon, with a 5/16" Braided Dacron (3200 lb. test) Rope Bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  For the bottom edges of the side/curtain nets, a Heavy Rope (Leadline) Border was installed - which adds extra weight to the bottom edge of the netting (aiding in keeping the netting in-place and preventing it from easily raising up off the ground).

Thank you again Nathan!  Your garage and installation look really, really great and we enjoyed working with you on this project very much!

Gourock.com specializes in supplying our diverse range of customers with custom netting enclosures and cage nets, for a wide variety of different intended uses and applications.  A netting enclosure design is best visualized as a "box" of netting, with the side nets, end nets, and ceiling netting all seamed together into a 3-dimensional design.  Netting enclosures help ensure that all objects within the inner volume stay well contained within that area.  Some popular and traditional uses for netting enclosures include baseball batting cage nets, golf hitting nets, gymnasium enclosure netting, and bird/aviary cage nets.  However, netting is a really functional and durable solution for lots of different unique applications and industries - so there are always many different possibilities and uses for the netting cage nets and enclosure nets that we ship out.

Regardless of the application for the enclosure netting, it is vastly important that the material used is very durable to abrasion and created from high quality materials.  Gourock supplies custom enclosure nets that are constructed with 100% Made in USA DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon.  We offer a variety of different mesh sizes ranging from 3/4" up to 4" sizing, and many different twine thicknesses to select from.  This nylon netting can be fabricated according to most any particular dimensions and sizing that you may need, and is well prepared for both full-time outdoor and indoor installations.

Nylon Sports Netting Built To Custom Shapes, Tapers, and Sizing

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom netting that can be fabricated according to your own preferred sizes and dimensions.  Because we can facilitate your specific sizing and dimensional needs for nets, you can get the most accurate and professional solution for your netting installation projects.  This is very helpful for a wide variety of sports netting uses and applications, used by a diverse population of athletic net end users.  For example, one client may be using netting for a stadium or facility installation at a municipal, scholastic, or professional location.  Another customer may be a private individual that requires custom netting for an at-home sporting requirement such as blocking balls or hitting balls into.  And often we supply teams and organizations with custom sports netting designs that are built to install well within field-houses, gymnasiums, and spectator/bleacher areas.  Along with dozens of other examples we have experience facilitating netting for, at Gourock.com we offer the highest quality custom sports and athletic nets that are personally constructed per-order according to your own preferred sizes.

In addition to offering personalized widths/lengths right through our Online Custom Netting Calculator, at Gourock we also offer the ability to fabricate nets and sport netting that features unique shapes, tapers, and angles.  There are many different reasons why many of our customers need nets that are built to angled shapes, and usually the primary consideration is that the netting is meant to "fill-in" areas of cover that may incorporate rafters, rooflines, tapered structural designs, staggered wires or posts, walls, or any other space that would be best suited for a non-rectangular netting installation.  Using the most high quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, the custom nets supplied by Gourock.com are 100% Made In USA, prepared per-order, and with quick leadtimes for production and shipment.  If you have a project that you'd like to have us take a look at for the netting supply, definitely feel free to contact us and forward any pertinent information you have available.  Our online contact page at Gourock.com allows you to include photos/diagrams/files and to request quotations from us, or also free netting sample swatches of our nylon netting options.

To help demonstrate some of these custom tapered sport netting examples, here are 4 instances of very unique nets that were all fabricated to our customer's specifications - all incorporating tapered and angled finished shapes.  Each example in this particular list reflects nets used to block or contain objects for a sporting or athletic necessity.  We corresponded personally with each customer, and developed CAD images and quotations for their specific nets - based on their specific sizing needs.  Once all was put into production, most were produced and shipped within 5-10 business days.

EXAMPLE 1:
Intended Netting Usage:  Residential location, golf barrier netting to protect the side of a house from errant shots/drives from a nearby golf course fairway.
Netting Type:  #12 X 1" twisted-knotted nylon, with 5/16" braided-polyester rope bordered edges.
Special Considerations:  The tapers and angles on this netting production were designed to correlate with the dimensions and shape of their gable, roofline, and house sizing.  This customer was primarily interested in protecting their windows from be struck by golf balls - and they wanted to mount/suspend the netting from their gable.  The dimensions shown in the production drawing demonstrate the slopes and sizes that are completely unique for this customer's netting solution needs.



EXAMPLE 2:
Intended Netting Usage:  Residential location, golf barrier netting to protect windows from errant shots/drives from a nearby golf course fairway.
Netting Type:  #18 X 1" twisted-knotted nylon, with 5/16" braided-polyester rope bordered edges.
Special Considerations:  The tapers and angles on this netting production were designed to correlate with the dimensions and shape of the bottom part of their raised deck.  They had an open space under the deck that had errant golf balls flying into, putting the basement windows in jeopardy of damage.  The dimensions shown in the production drawing demonstrate the slopes and sizes that are completely unique for this customer's netting solution needs.



EXAMPLE 3:
Intended Netting Usage:  Baseball stadium barrier netting and safety nets, intended to cover an open area of the spectator/bleacher space that was still subjected to foul balls.
Netting Type:  #36 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon, with 5/16" braided-polyester rope bordered edges.
Special Considerations:  There were two spectator areas of the stadium that were wide-open to foul ball impacts, which were creating unnecessary safety risks.  Each zone incorporated safety railing and structural elements that needed to be accounted for in order for the nylon netting to fit the space correctly.  The netting was to be directly connected/laced to the existing rails, so in order to achieve a professional fit the dimensions shown in the production drawing demonstrate the slopes and sizes that are completely unique for this customer's netting solution needs.



EXAMPLE 4:
Intended Netting Usage:  Commercial sport/gaming use.  This was a commercial vendor that offers a variety of basketball shooting games at events, and they required netting to contain shots within the game area.
Netting Type:  #21 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon, with 5/16" braided-polyester rope bordered edges.
Special Considerations:  These nets were built to accommodate a commercial basketball shooting/return game offered by our customer.  The surrounding area of each game required netting to contain the basketballs within the confines of the shooting space as the game was underway.  They offered 4 different sizes of their game, so there were 4 different tapered netting sizes required to professionally fit the sides of each game.  The dimensions shown in the production drawing demonstrate the slopes and sizes that are completely unique for this customer's netting solution needs.

Custom Netting for Garden and Agricultural Installations

At Gourock.com we specialize in the supply of custom netting products that can be used for a very wide array of intended applications.  Many of the well known uses for a lot of netting include athletic purposes, industrial needs, stadiums and parks/ranges, bird barrier, and property protection.  However, netting is a really functional solution for more unique and niche purposes as well - and one of these popular uses is for gardening and agriculture.

Our company supplies custom netting to all types of end-users, including commercial, government, professional, scholastic, and private residential customers.  For gardening purposes and agricultural applications, Gourock.com has been a preferred netting source for very large industrial farming operations, as well as a substantial volume of private residential farms and gardens of all sizes.  With Gourock.com you have very convenient custom sizing options directly through our site, allowing you to get nets that are fabricated according to most any particular dimensions that you prefer to use for your project.  The following example demonstrates how one of our recent customers planned and developed a very nice netting installation at their home garden site.

Our customer in Utah has a stout and solid roof framing covering a trellis area in his garden.  The issue that he wanted to alleviate was birds picking from the vines on the trellis, and also to provide a bit more of a shaded area to help block some of the direct overhead sunlight during the middle part of the day - as well as being a blockade against potential hail situations.  His primary concern was to exclude smaller-sized birds from getting into the area, so the mesh size of the netting would need to be pretty small in order to perform as expected.  In addition, he wanted to integrate a material that would have the ability to easily roll-up around the pulley/spool design he constructed (allowing him to efficiently pull the vertical barrier netting up-and-down as needed).  He planned on having both longer sides be "roll-up" nets, with the two ends being fixed in-place.  The upper roof area was to remain as a stationary net, spanning the arching horizontal area full-time.

At Gourock.com we prepared and supplied the perfect netting choices and materials for this particular garden project, and they were easily fabricated to the custom dimensions that best-fit our customer's needs for this design.  For the netting that was to cover the 2 longer sides, and to be spooled/rolled around his pulley retraction system, the best material to use was the DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting100% Made in USA,  this knotted nylon netting available from Gourock features very high tensile strengths and abrasion durability, along with being a "fabric-like" netting that easily spools and condenses - making it have a high level of usability and function.

The best match mesh size for his needs was the 3/4" square mesh netting, which is a really great exclusion net product for small birds.  The twine thickness in this case was the #15 twine, which is a 1.8mm diameter with a 144 lb. tensile strength rating.  Black in color, and fully prepared for outdoor UV and moisture exposure, the #15 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting is a fantastic and long-lasting option for bird barrier installations in gardens.  There were 4 nets that he custom-ordered from this netting, each one specifically sized to meet his needs for the actual installation structure.  The 2 nets for the longer sides (roll-up sides) were each built to 9' X 15'.  For the 2 nets needed on the ends (stationary), those were both prepared to the sizing of 9' X 6'-6".

The #15 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting does not provide much shading or light-blocking however, so a different material was recommended and supplied for the upper roof netting.  The material needed to still function as a bird deterrent, but also was to incorporate a degree of light-blocking and protection against occasional hail circumstances.  His horizontal roof area features an arching design, so the netting was expected to easily install over the top of the arching tubing, and lay evenly across the space.  The best material for this part of the project was the HDPE 50% Shade Cloth that we have available.  This shade cloth blocks 50% of light, allowing for a decent amount of shading - and is often used for debris containment applications, making it optimal for hail barrier as well.  The netting size ordered and prepared was 8' X 18'.

Gourock.com allows you to order all of our nylon netting and shade screen materials according to your own specific customized dimensions, directly online through our Custom Netting Calculator.

Take a look at the 3 photos below to get a good conceptual look at this custom garden netting installation, and how it all turned out in the end.  We think it looks really great - and the report back to us is that everything is performing just as planned.

Thank you again Clabe!  It was very nice working with you, and we appreciate your business very much!
