The main considerations to account for as you plan your installation of barrier netting for the training space are:
- diameter/size of the objects needing to be contained (baseball, soccer, golf, etc.).
- amount of wear/abrasion that you expect the netting to be subject to.
- visual preferences (thinner twine netting vs. thicker).
- areas that you may need to pass-through or gain access to other parts of the facility.
- planning for how the netting will be hung/suspended, and if the building itself is already conducive for the netting installation (rafters, cables, walls, etc.).
You can view many examples of custom netting productions on the Gourock site, as well and throughout this company blog. Over the last 2 weeks we have facilitated an interesting netting job for a sports facility in Ohio, and you can view the interesting dimensions and shapes that were required for the building. The selected netting was the #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon, diamond mesh pattern, with all edges featuring the 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering installed. This is probably the most commonly selected netting type and construction for most general multipurpose sports facilities, as the #21 twine is a fantastic value that functions extraordinarily well for most sports. And due to the tapered shape requirements, the diamond mesh pattern is required - as has been written about previously in this blog (click here for reference).
The best way to get started on getting some pricing quotes for your facility or building is to contact us and forward over the list of panel sizes and quantities that you need. Diagrams or drawings are certainly accepted, and it is also good to know the types of objects that are required to be contained within the space.
