Baseball Field Barrier Nets

Throughout the late winter and early spring we coordinate the fabrication and supply of many baseball/softball field barrier nets and backstop nets.  These are actually a fairly popular application for installation throughout the entire year, but due to the approaching spring/summer sports seasons they become more of a priority for athletic departments, municipalities, and installation contractors.  Gourock.com has years of experience facilitating the production and shipments of stadium/field barrier netting panels and backstop nets for a diversified spectrum of customers including parks departments, universities, commercial/professional facilities, and regional booster clubs.

Every baseball and softball barrier netting installation has a unique set of dimensions and shapes that need to be accommodated in order for the overall installation to be effective and aesthetically functional.  Gourock.com can supply almost any custom shaping feature and arrangement of dimensions required for a particular field and job.  Generally speaking, these sorts of netting panels are built from the 1-3/4" mesh size knotted nylon netting.  The recommended twine thicknesses are the #21 (241 lb./twine) and the thicker #36 (381 lb./twine), and the DuPont® Type 66-728 Nylon material ensures maximum quality and long-term durability.  Often, the 1" tarred barrier netting is also a selected choice and does a really great job as well (available in #12 and #18 twine thicknesses).  The 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering is sewn-in on the perimeter meshes.
Contractors and recreation departments typically forward us a general schematic/drawing of their sizing/shape requirements to be provided with an accurate pricing quote, so feel free to us our contact page to drop over your attachments and notes.
