Residential Protective Netting

Nylon netting is an excellent and dependable material for protective and containment solutions for around the home and property.  Typically, people who have a home that is located in a close proximity to a golf course fairway or driving range often have situations involving golf balls flying into their property.  This obviously has a lot of potentially dangerous consequences such as property damage, personal injury, and stress.

Utilizing a typical barrier netting installation is a very common approach for a great many people who are seeking a functional protective barrier around their area.  Most often, the material selected for general multipurpose outdoor containment netting, including golf barrier use, is the 1" tarred DuPont type 66-728 knotted nylon netting.  This material is designed for continual outdoor exposure and longevity.  However, we see all types of unique netting applications and uses - especially popular is utilizing existing structures/supports that already exist at the location as part of the netting installation. 

Since Gourock.com can supply knotted nylon netting according to any dimensions that are required, including most custom shapes/tapers, you can keep a pretty open-mind regarding the protective barrier setup that you may require.  Below you'll see a helpful example of a fairly recent netting panel construction for a customer's home.  The purpose of the netting for this particular invoice/production is to aid in protecting the siding and windows of the home from incoming golf balls from a nearby course course fairway.  They chose to connect the rope bordering of the netting panels directly to the overhead gutters that were already an existing structure on the house.  The gutters provided a 1.5' clearance from the sides of the home, and then the netting panels are spanned to ground level and attached to bottom connectors.  As you can see from the photo of the property, there is a sloping grade that the netting panels were to correspond to - so using the dimensions provided from the location, the custom #12 X 1" tarred nylon netting panels with 5/16" rope bordering were produced and supplied to match the particular area.  The #12 X 1" nylon netting was selected due to its great functionality as golf barrier netting, lightweight presence, longterm outdoor durability, ease-of-use, and minimal visual properties.
