Driveway Basketball Barrier Netting - Customer Photos

Many people have basketball hoops and shooting areas on their residential driveways, and for many different reasons they need to barricade and contain the balls within the surrounding space.  Not only does chasing missed shots and rolling balls waste a lot of time and energy, it also become pretty tedious as well!  Especially considering a lot of the driveway basketball practice areas are close to hills, woods, ravines, other buildings and structures, streams and ponds, and of course roads and traffic.

A great solution to alleviate the inconveniences of chasing arrant basketballs is to use a barrier netting setup around the playing area.  Gourock.com supplies netting that works perfectly for this use, and there are numerous different options to consider hanging up.  Most typical for larger object containment (basketball, volleyball, soccer, etc.) is the 4" mesh knotted nylon netting.  For people that want to block larger objects as well some smaller balls as well (tennis, baseball, street hockey, softball, etc.) there is the 1-3/4" mesh knotted nylon netting that is fantastic to go with.  The nylon netting available from Gourock.com is 100% made in the USA, prepared per-order according to your own preferred custom dimensions, and is a very high-quality durable netting option for longterm installations.  You can take a look at these nets at this page of the Gourock website - and free netting samples are also available to mail out if requested.

Below are 4 photos that were forwarded to us from a recent customer that hung the nylon barrier netting around 3 sides of his backyard court area using the In-Ground Steel Poles that we also have available.  The netting he selected was the multipurpose #21 X 1-3/4" DuPont® twisted-knotted nylon netting, square mesh pattern with a rope bordering, in the dimensions of 10' X 70'.  He then used a series of the In-Ground Steel Poles and Sleeves spaced around the perimeter area to hang the netting from, and used Gourock Bungee Ball Straps to adjust the fit and tension of the netting to match his preferences.

As you can see, the black nylon netting and the black poles do a fantastic job of blending-into the background environment, which keeps the overall installation as minimally visible as possible.  And of course, the nylon netting and poles are designed to be durable and dependable for many years of consistent use and exposure.

This is a great-looking installation and court Bryan!  Thank you again very much - we appreciate it!

Basketball Barrier Net with Poles - Customer Photos

Gourock.com supplies many different nets for customers that seek solutions to barricade and block basketballs within their practice area.  Using a basketball barrier netting setup at your location has many advantages over time, since you won't waste much time or energy chasing missed shots and errant balls.  In addition, there are a lot of general safety enhancements as well, considering that rolling basketballs may potentially enter a high traffic area, or wooded areas that may have situations with poison ivy, ticks, or other similar avoidances.

We have many options available to consider for the barrier netting used for basketball applications, both for private residential properties as well as for commercial, municipal, and organizational purposes.  One recent customer of ours sent over a couple photos of his basketball netting setup that he installed at his house.  His hoop and court area had a corner and a back-end that he needed to block errant balls from passing through, since there was a neighbor's fence on one side to avoid damaging, and then a small hill that caused the balls to roll an unnecessary distance from the court.  His preference was a netting solution that would be dependably durable over time, but also be as minimally visible as possible.  The best product match for his use was the #15 X 4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, black color, square mesh with a rope bordering around the perimeter edges.

The #15 X 4" nylon netting is the best selection because it has a larger mesh size of 4" square, making it great for large objects like basketballs, soccer balls, and volleyballs.  Also, it has a thin twine thickness of 1.8mm.  So combining those 2 characteristics means that you have the largest mesh size option possible, made from the thinnest twine thickness available, which very much minimizes the overall amount of netting material within the entire area.  That makes it as "invisible" as can expected, but at the same time it retains a high durability due to the high tensile strength characteristic of nylon material.  The #15 is only 1.8mm thick, but has a tensile rating (breaking strength) of 144 lb./twine.  Very strong, very lightweight, and very dependable for basketball barrier nets.  100% Made in USA.

Our customer also utilized the In-Ground Steel Poles that we have available at gourock.com to purchase.  He used a series of our poles, in conjunction with some of our Bungee Ball Straps, to get a very even and taught netting appearance throughout the entire area.  These are also great to moderate the amount of netting displacement, movement, and reaction to wind.

Here are a couple of photos submitted to us demonstrating the finished product and installation.

It looks really great John!!  Thanks again very much, we appreciate your business and feedback!!

Indoor Baseball & Sports Facility Netting Installation

Gourock.com supplies custom netting for many different types of indoor installations and uses.  There are many types of clients and customers that source custom netting solutions for indoor sports training needs, including:
  • commercial sports training organizations
  • collegiate and university installations
  • professional teams and stadiums
  • sports and physical therapy establishments
  • personal and private residential training applications
  • municipal and scholastic team/club uses
Indoor baseball facilities generally require a variety of different netting solutions to fulfill the needs of the establishment - and in many instances the best approach is to install a 3-dimensional netting enclosure.  Netting enclosures incorporate a design that has both ends, both sides, and the entire top/ceiling mesh seamed together - meant to keep all balls and objects that are within the enclosed area properly contained in the space.  A very commonplace type of baseball product that is a netting enclosure is a batting cage net.  Gourock.com supplies enclosures and batting cage nets that are custom-built according to most any particular dimensions that you require for your space.  Custom combinations of height, width, and length can be easily prices and ordered directly through Gourock's Custom Batting Cage Calculator.

Most larger commercial and collegiate/professional baseball and softball indoor netting installations have the goal of enclosing relatively large areas and volumes within netting.  This allows facility organizers, manager, and owners to have a large space available to train in, while containing baseballs and softballs in a designated area - away from walls, lights, and visitor/general-public zones.  And in addition, many facility organizers also use a series of separate divider nets to slide back-and-forth within the larger netting enclosure - which breaks the larger space into smaller individual tunnel areas and hitting/pitching/training areas.  Gourock.com includes the option to add separate divider panel nets to custom batting cage nets as you continue through the Online Custom Batting Cage Calculator.

Using the highest quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, 100% Made in the USA, the custom batting cage nets available through Gourock.com are hand-built per-order by professional craftsman with dozens of years of net construction experience.  Very well prepared for outdoor installations (all materials are black UV Stabilized and Latex/Urethane Bonded) as well as for all indoor usage as well - generally any sizing at all can be produced for your particular needs.  Fast turnaround times on custom netting productions, and shipment/delivery options to anywhere.

Indoor netting installations almost always use a hanging approach that uses a series of tensioned cables/wires that stretch across the facility area - and then the netting clips underneath the cabling to suspend it off the ground.  This approach for hanging the netting also allows for the netting to be slid back-and-forth on the wires/cables "curtain-style", which is a very helpful feature to efficiently move the netting out of the way as needed (for maintenance, alternative building spaces uses, storage, etc.). We have provided much information over the years on how this installation approach can be undertaken, and here are some previous blog article and site links that will provide great context about cable suspension techniques:

A recent commercial sports and baseball facility in Ontario, Canada installed an indoor netting enclosure and divider net at their location.  This was a customized netting build that was manufactured to their own personal preferences on sizing and netting twine/mesh, along with the inclusion of top-rope ceiling lines (to line up with hanging cables) and separate divider panel nets.  This facility also utilized 3/16" Aircraft Cabling hardware items and snap-hooks to suspend the enclosure netting at their preferred height - as well as running separate cables for the individual divider panel nets.  Every facility and installation is a unique project, and here is a series of photos of this establishments' installation job, which provides some great general context into how you can go about something very similar at your own indoor sports facility.

Nylon Netting Used For ATV Dog Containment - customer photos

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom netting materials, prepared per-order according to your own specified sizing and finishing preferences.  A great characteristic of the custom nylon and polyester netting options available through the Gourock site is the multipurpose flexibility they offer for a very wide variety of unique and personalized applications.  There are quite a few selections available to consider, with a variety of different mesh sizes and twine thicknesses - all of which are readily ordered to your own custom dimensions directly through the Gourock.com site:
http://www.gourock.com/netting_types.html

One of the netting options that we have available that is very popular for multipurpose and more uniquely specialized projects is the 210D/80 X 1" knotless nylon netting.  This is a netting construction that features:

  • braided-knotless mesh construction
  • 1" square mesh size
  • twine thickness of #26 (209 lb./tensile rating)
  • UV stabilization and urethane bonding
  • a variety of coloring options: black, white, blue, tan, grey, yellow, orange, magenta/red
  • available to order according to any dimensions you prefer
It's a very user-friendly netting to work with, and can be prepared for you with a rope bordering sewn-in around the edges, or with a 1-1/2" webbing/grommeted border, or as sections of bulk mesh.  The 1" mesh size is very applicable for a wide-range of uses (it's a very multipurpose mesh size), and the different coloring options make it attractive for different aesthetic characteristics that may be preferred for the overall project.  It features a moderately thick twine size that has a very high abrasion resistance along with high tensile strength rating, making it a very dependable and durable netting selection without being overly thick/heavy while at the same time not being a lightweight material either.  In addition to those intrinsic attributes, the braided-knotless nylon netting is a "fabric-like" material - so many people find it a very adaptable mesh that can mold/wrap/adjust around odd-shaped spaces and/or structures.

Gourock.com often supplies custom netting for pet and animal barrier uses, especially for dogs.  Many times the dog barrier netting is blocking off a loft area, doorways, railings, or decks/patios.  Gourock also supplies netting that is applied to various different types of transportation vehicles for different uses, including for boats, trucks, trailers, and passenger cars.  
A recent Gourock netting customer had a need for barrier netting that was to be used for both of these uses - he had a side-by-side ATV that he often operated with his Golden Retriever riding in back, and needed to dependably contain his dog within the ATV while driving.  The 1" knotless nylon netting was a great selection for his use, since the preference was for a strong pliable netting material with a mesh size that was small enough to avoid paws going "though" the netting, as well as having a bright color for both visibility and also aesthetic.

He opted for a bulk mesh section of orange-colored 210D/80 X 1" knotless nylon netting, so that he could use that material to layer around his ATV where needed, and then cut/trim to shape on his own while working with it.  In this case it was a 4'-6" X 22' section of netting, in order to have enough material to work with, along with having some excess mesh to hold on the side for future uses or additions if needed.  Also ordered was a 100' length of the black braided-polyester rope that we supply, which is the same rope that is used on netting productions that have the rope already sewn-in around the perimeter of the mesh.  This bulk length of rope was used by him to weave/lace through the edges of his personally cut/trimmed netting in order to reinforce the edges and provide a nice strong/durable material to attach the netting to the framing of the ATV.  He used bungee cord materials (like the Bungee Balls available from Gourock) to actually connect the netting to his side-by-side, which are convenient because they add a bit of tension/tightness to the overall installation of the netting, and are efficiently removed if needed for instances where the netting may need to come off of the vehicle for storage or in periods of non-use.

Here are some photos that were provided to use from our customer, and they are quite helpful to get a good look at how the nylon netting available from Gourock.com can be used for very unique and personalized projects that not only function with the highest expectation of durability, but also look really good too!

Thank you again Tom - great job, and we appreciate it very much!

Drone Netting Installation at 2017 CES Tradeshow

Gourock.com supplies netting for many different types of drone and U.A.V. applications, and we have 4 particularly popular and recommended netting options available on the site for your consideration:
http://www.gourock.com/drone-netting-uav-nets.html

Drone netting that is supplied by Gourock is available to be ordered to most any specific widths and lengths that you require for your installation - and you can order it as "bulk mesh" material (netting-only, without any sort of finishing border), or as a finished netting panel that features a 5/16" braided polyester rope sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  The 4 netting recommendations on the Gourock.com site for drone nets and U.A.V. nets feature 2 mesh sizes:  1-3/4" and a larger 4" mesh.  And then each mesh size also has a thinner and thicker twine option available to consider.  So what this means is that depending on your particular drone application you have the option to go with something that is lightweight and as 'invisible' as possible, or for material that has extra thickness for increase expectations of abrasion and exposure to the elements.  No matter which netting type is selected, you can expect very high durability and dependability with a great ease-of-use.

Gourock.com specializes in supplying drone nets that are fabricated with high-end DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon.  This netting material has exceedingly strong tensile ratings, is UV stabilized and latex/urethane bonded against the elements, and is available to be built to most any custom sizing that is required for your application and installation project.  Drone nets are used for a pretty diverse range of users, including:

  • university and laboratory research
  • commercial drone-racing
  • airports and bases
  • government and military
  • trade shows and conventions
This past December we had posted an article regarding some very customized drone netting panels that were used for a vendor installation at the 2017 CES trade show in Las Vegas.  For some information on the netting type and design, you can refer to that previous article here: http://netting-gourock.blogspot.com/2016/12/drone-uav-netting-for-trade-shows.html

Here are some photos from the actual installation at the show, which provide great context into how that overall netting supply ended up - and you can use the netting supplied by Gourock for your own drone and U.A.V. barrier netting requirements.  The online shopping cart allows for very efficient and simple ordering of any 2-dimensional (square/rectangular) netting sizes and shapes that you need, as you type-in your sizes right into the Custom Netting Calculator.  But in addition to that, we also supply very specialized tapered shapes and designs as well - which are built to your particular needs.  For example, the nets used for this CES installation for instance.  In that case, simply drop a line through Gourock's contact page and you can request a quotation from us (and you have the opportunity to upload files as well).

Deer and Chicken Barrier Netting - Customer Photo

The netting options supplied by Gourock.com are used for a huge variety of different applications and uses, throughout many industries and users.  A couple of very popular product purposes are deer barrier netting, and bird/poultry barrier nets.

For deer barrier netting, the lighter-weight nylon nets with the larger mesh sizes are the most popular, functional, and recommended.  So the two selections that fulfill most all deer barrier netting orders are the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, and the #12 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  We supply these options according to most any dimensions you need, and they are composed of the highest quality DuPont® type 66-728 nylon.  100% Made in the USA, these nylon netting types maintain a very higher tensile strength rating while featuring the benefits of a relatively thin twine thickness.  This means you get a very strong and durable netting, while minimizing weight, visibility, effect of wind/elements, and cost.  The Gourock site does provide a deer netting specific page to reference, and it allows for the pricing/ordering of any sizing you need:
http://www.gourock.com/deer-net-calculator.html

Bird barrier netting is quite diverse across the board, and there are many different recommended netting types and configurations based on the particular installation/customer.  Bird barrier netting is used at 

  • industrial locations
  • warehouses and hangars
  • zoos and aviaries
  • private residences
  • farms
  • landfill and recycling centers
  • mining and petroleum operations
  • stadiums
  • shops and markets
  • municipal and scholastic locations, as well as
  • many more unique and diverse environments


Gourock.com does bird exclusion nets in nearly every sizing imaginable, ranging from hundreds of feet for commercial clients, to small lengths and areas for private home users.  Just like the deer netting noted above, the Gourock site also has a dedicated page specific to bird netting options as well:
http://www.gourock.com/bird-netting.html

Deer and bird barrier netting are equally popular in both rural and urban environments, as both types of living areas have their own individual concerns with deer and birds.  A recent local customer here in Bellingham has a chicken coop and garden, and also a big need for both types of animal exclusion. For the deer netting, the primary purpose is to block-off the entire surrounding area to keep them from entering the garden area entirely.  And for the chickens, the surrounding deer barrier nets keep them contained within the overall space as well.  But in addition to that, we have a lot of predatory birds here in Bellingham, primarily eagles and hawks.  This customer, like many others in the same situation, require a bird exclusion netting to cover the top of the chicken coop area to keep the predatory falcons out.

Here is a provided photo of the garden/coop and the netting he installed.  The surrounding deer barrier net is the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, and it is suspended and hung between a series of general in-ground fence posts.  He used a spool of the #60 nylon twine to weave/lace through the top meshes of the netting, acting as a nice support and border for overall length of net.
The bird netting cover over the top is from the #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  At Gourock.com we can supply either of these particular netting types according to your preferred dimensions - no problem at all.

Looks really great Pat - thank you again!

Basketball Barrier Netting, Customer Photos

Gourock.com supplies nylon netting for basketball barrier installations for all kinds of different users, ranging from large commercial clients to private residential customers.  There are a lot of really great options available, from a variety of twine thicknesses and mesh sizes - and since the nylon nets are prepared per-order, you have the ability to order any sizing needed for your project.  We have some good netting type selections to take a look at on the Basketball Barrier Netting section of the Gourock site:

One of the most popular selections for home-use and commercial-use basketball barrier netting is the 4" mesh size twisted-knotted nylon netting.  This is a black-colored, square mesh pattern netting - constructed from the DuPont® type 66-728 nylon, and is 100% Made in the USA.  There are a couple of options for twine thickness, so that you can go with a lighter-weight net (#15, 1.8mm) or a heavier-weight (#30, 2.3mm) depending on your preferences and expected usage.
Gourock prepares either of those netting options either with or without a 5/16" rope bordering installed around the perimeter edges - so you can have the material supplied as "bulk" cut sections, or as finished and bordered netting panels.

The 4" nylon netting works really well when installed between Gourock's In-Ground Steel Poles, which is a pole/support system that utilizes a ground sleeve/anchor and 2" pole components.  You can view details and installation details about these netting installation poles here:

Many people need barrier netting around their property, driveways, or sport-courts in order to contain basketballs within the play area.  This is often due to safety reasons (for instance, keeping balls from rolling into traffic, or out of wooded areas that may have ticks), for convenience (keeping balls from rolling down hills or driveways), and for consideration of neighbors or surrounding property.  There are 4 different heights available, which are 8', 10', 12', and 14'.  The netting used to hang between the poles can be any length - so you can get as much barrier netting coverage area as you prefer - spacing the poles every 10'-12', which is the recommended placement interval.

Here is a series of photos from one of our recent customers that utilized Gourock's steel poles and nylon netting to complete his basketball barrier netting setup at his home.  You can click on the images to see them larger - and you can get a good idea of how minimally visual all of the materials and poles are.  
He went with the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting with a perimeter rope bordering installed.  And the netting is connected/spanned between three of the 10' in-ground poles.  And you can also see a personalized addition that he made to increase the tension/fit of the netting by designing a general guy-wire support from some rope, stakes, and hooks.

Looks really great John - thank you again!

Drone & U.A.V. Netting for Trade Shows & Conventions

Gourock.com supplies customized netting productions for many drone and UAV barrier applications, ranging from research installations at university laboratories all the way to commercial and industrial facilities.  Another very popular and unique installation use for drone and UAV barrier nets is at convention centers and trade shows.

The netting types that are most typically used for drone netting are available to order according to most any dimensions that you need on the Drone Netting page on Gourock.com
Mesh sizes of 1-3/4" and 4" are generally the most recommended for many drone netting uses, including those at convention center and trade show displays.  Because Gourock specializes in the supply of custom netting built to your particular sizing needs, there are many opportunities for you to incorporate nylon netting within your trade show display construction.  Protective safety barrier netting is generally a requirement for commercial drone and UAV installations - and the DuPont® type 66-728 knotted nylon netting that is supplied by Gourock.com is a perfect solution for customized and specialized drone displays.  Nylon is very lightweight and flexible, with a very high tensile-strength characteristic.  Relatively thin nylon twine thicknesses retain high breaking strengths, allowing you to minimize the amount of material-per-twine for the barrier netting.  This means a lower visual impedance and increased ease-of-installation.  And since you can have custom sizing provided for your show and installation, you can work with custom-built nets made to-size that save time during setup and increase the overall efficiency of your job.

In addition to the nylon netting being optimal for trade show drone netting installations because of it's physical features, Gourock.com also provides custom-built nets that incorporate very specific shapes and tapered designs.  For instance, there are many times that a finished netting panel that has a triangular shape or a pattern like a hexagon will be needed to accurately match the framing structure of the overall display.  And since these types of displays are usually marketing-oriented, the overall appearance of the finished look is an important consideration.  Using Gourock.com you can have very specific nets fabricated to unique sizes and angled shapes, enhancing the professional appearance of the drone display and enhancing the overall product demonstration and brand identity.

Here is a very recent example of a drone display designed and constructed by a professional marketing firm, for a technology vendor at the 2017 CES show.  This very high-end display required drone barrier netting to encapsulate the entire upper area of the structure - which is the drone flight zone.  10 customized netting panels and shapes were needed to complete this display job, and the netting that was selected for this project was the #21 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon netting, diamond mesh pattern, with a 5/16" polyester rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  As you can see from the product images below, the nets were constructed with specific dimensions and tapers to match the corresponding spaces of the flight pen area.

At Gourock we can certainly assist on the netting aspects of your trade show and convention center displays - especially for drone and UAV barrier purposes.  We do not advise or design the framing and structural aspects of the display itself - that is generally done by professional marketing and display designers - however you can certainly consider Gourock.com for the netting component of the overall job.  Feel free to use the contact page on our site to upload and submit any sizing or quote requests that you're interested in, and we look forward to assisting!

Custom Netting Panels, Specialized Shapes for Larger Areas

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of customized netting productions, and many times the nets that are required by our customers need to have some very particular and unique sizing and shape characteristics.  A lot of custom nets do the job really well when they are constructed to square or rectangular shapes that are produced to most any particular dimensions that are preferred - such as the readily available options displayed on Gourock's Online Netting Calculator.  However, there are many instances in many industries in which the customization of final netting shape needs to be more specific and very unique.  And then in addition to more specialized shape considerations, there are many situations where the netting is meant to cover or span over a larger area as well.  For some context on this, think of netting that is meant to cover a specifically shaped warehouse optioning, stadium spectator area, or an industrial retention pond for instance.

Larger nets with custom shapes, dimensions, and fabrication features are available for Gourock to quote and supply to you, providing you the opportunity to have specifically created netting panels made-to-order that will be the best solution for your particular problem or project goal.  Gourock.com has years and years of experience with supplying custom netting productions for a very wide spectrum of industries and customers including those in athletics, municipalities and scholastics, agricultural, warehousing and logistics, vendor and trade-show installations, government and military, mining and heavy industry, and more.  Custom netting is a very far reaching and widely applied solution for a diverse population of industries, companies, and users - and Gourock is a specialty supplier of the highest quality Made in USA custom netting products.

As we have noted many times within this company blog as well as on the Gourock.com website, netting productions that we ship out can be quite unique and built to all different combinations of dimensions and shapes.  For instance, see this recent article on our blog that helps demonstrate some very specifically constructed custom netting shapes intended for smaller-sized areas.  This following set of examples is pretty similar in intention and need, with the difference being that these nets below have a lot larger area involved since they are needed for large spaces.  As with those previous examples of the smaller-area nets, these following nets all square some typical characteristics as well:
  • each are larger in total size area, since they are built to block/protect an expansive overall space
  • each features a custom shape characteristic, specifically a taper or angle to correctly function for the specific area that needs to be blocked by netting
  • each features a 5/16" polyester rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges, which adds strength and durability around the edges and also holds the netting into its specific shape and size
  • each are built from the DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, using the best combination of twine thickness and mesh size for the intended purpose for the net
A good way to get started on choosing the netting that is best-suited for your purpose is to take a look at the mesh size and twine thickness options that we have available to consider on this page of the Gourock website.  And then you can also use the contact page on the Gourock site to upload a diagram/drawing and forward it over to us to take a look at - and then we can quote some available options for your consideration.  You can also use the same contact page to request some sample pieces of different netting types, we mail them out at no charge.

Custom Nylon Netting Shapes for Smaller Areas

Gourock.com supplies hundreds of custom built netting panels for a very wide spectrum of applications and needs.  Many times the netting that is required for a particular project needs to incorporate very specific sizing and shape characteristics in order to best accomplish its purpose.  Often the customized sizes and shapes are needed for larger installations such as sports stadiums, gymnasiums, warehouses, and outdoor facilities.  Lots of times these sorts of netting productions are pretty large in size, and are meant to have lots of coverage area - for instance, spanning entire specter bleacher areas or spans between buildings.  We have many examples of large custom netting productions noted throughout the Gourock.com site and on this company blog as well.

However, the custom netting available from Gourock is also very functional for smaller spaces and limited coverage areas.  Since we have a wide variety of netting twine thicknesses and mesh sizes available, as well as many options for customizing sizing and shape features, there are opportunities for netting solutions for very unique situations.  For instance, there are industrial warehouse applications that require small nets to barricade or block railing spaces, loft areas, and gaps in racking and shelving.  In other industrial applications there may be small specific gaps within rafters or between equipment storage spaces that need to be spanned with netting to block people, birds, debris, or animals from passing through.  The same sorts of situations also pop-up with private residential applications as well - and they also are typical for a lot of scholastic or municipal installations too.

Gourock.com specializes in custom netting supply, and you have the opportunity to have netting made per-order according to some pretty specific shape details as well.  A good way to get started on choosing the netting that is best-suited for your purpose is to take a look at the mesh size and twine thickness options that we have available to consider on this page of the Gourock website.  And then you can also use the contact page on the Gourock site to upload a diagram/drawing and forward it over to us to take a look at - and then we can quote some available options for your consideration.  You can also use the same contact page to request some sample pieces of different netting types, we mail them out at no charge.

Most of the highly custom nets that are supplied by Gourock.com are built using the highest-quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  Available in a wide selection of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses, and 100% Made in the USA, custom netting products from Gourock are produced per-order according to the sizing that you need for your particular project.  Whether it's a very large-scale netting production that is meant to surround entire driving ranges or commercial locations, or for smaller-sized nets that have a highly unique purpose and installation space, Gourock.com has a netting solution for you.

Take a look through this blog and also in the Gourock.com site as well to get some context on different custom netting jobs that have been shipped over the years - you very well may locate a few examples that are very similar to what you are aiming for for your project.  Here are four examples of custom netting productions supplied by Gourock.com that are each quite unique, but also incorporate the following particular characteristics:
  • each are smaller in total size area, since they are built to block/protect an important small space
  • each features a custom shape characteristic, specifically a taper or angle to correctly function for the specific area that needs to be blocked by netting
  • each features a 5/16" polyester rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges, which adds strength and durability around the edges and also holds the netting into its specific shape and size
