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.
