Ski Lodge Barrier Netting

One of the great features of nylon netting is that it can be utilized for a huge variety of unique applications and functions.  Because Gourock.com specializes in supplying custom nylon netting productions, we are continually communicating with people that seek specialized solutions for their particular needs.

Recently, the "Powderpigs" Ski School, located at Summit Central (Snoqualmie Pass, WA), needed to barricade some raised decking at their ski lodge.  The purpose was to fulfill some safety code requirements dealing with making sure that objects on the deck were properly contained within the area.  Due to the massive amount of snowfall that Western Washington receives in the mountains during the winter months, the ski school coordinator needed a barrier solution that had the following features:
  • could be easily taken up-and-down as needed, in order to remove snow from the deck
  • was a very strong material with maximum weather resistance
  • had a stabilized edging around the perimeter as well as connection rings
  • was able to be produced to very specific dimensions
  • was within a reasonable budget, and could be produced right away
Gourock.com provided a perfect combination of all of these requests with the supply of custom nylon netting panels built from the #18 X 1" (191 lb./twine) DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting.  This netting selection has an additional tar-coating that maximizes resistance to UV and moisture, and the panels were bordered with the 5/16" Dacron® Rope Bordering (sewn-in) which have a 3200 lb./test.  2" steel rings were added to the customer-specified dimensions.  All MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) were included so the schools could comply with safety standards. 

As you can see from the pictures supplied by "Powderpigs" the custom netting panels fit their spacing well, and are accomplishing their intended purpose!
