Nylon Nets Featuring Tapered Edges

Gourock.com supplies a really wide range of nylon netting options, and many different unique netting productions have been highlighted throughout this blog over the last few years.  Some of the customized features that are often required for the final product fabrication are specific shapes and/or tapers.  Many times these sorts of tapers are meant to closely follow the sloping roof-line of a building, or to line up with a particular set of angles that are created by the cables/wires that the netting will be clipped to.  Of course, there are also many other types of unique situations that call for specialized angles/tapers to be considered for a customer's netting production - and from Gourock you have the opportunity to get as close as possible to a precisely manufactured nylon netting solution.

The DuPont® twisted-knotted nylon netting is a very high-end and durable product choice for most all netting productions, and is the material that is utilized for the the customized tapered nets that we supply our customers with.  Due to the nature of the production requirements for tapered shapes, a diamond mesh pattern and a rope bordering installation (Dacron® rope) are the 2 requirements for proper fabrication.  There are a wide variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses available for your consideration, which you can take a look at here on the Gourock site.  And if you want to forward over a diagram (with dimensions) of your specially-shaped netting needs, certainly feel free to do so using the upload options on our contact page.  The following selected examples of tapered netting productions were all facilitated by Gourock beginning with correspondence and uploaded requests through the contact form, and we'd like to share with you some of the recent productions that have been shipped out in the past few weeks.  This particular highlight of completed orders includes nets for professional baseball fields, parks & rec departments, indoor sports facilities, and municipal sports associations:

Custom Nets With Notches, Portals, & Cutouts

Many of our customers have particular shape requirements for their custom netting solutions, and at Gourock we have many years of experience supplying nets that fit their needs.  As has been noted many times throughout our blog and within our website, we have nylon netting available to be supplied to a very wide range of dimensions and customized features.  In quite a few instances, the netting that will be suitable for a particular usage or installation has to be fabricated to a specific shape.  Another fairly typical requirement is the ability of the netting to allow for objects to pass-through the area.  We have assisted a really large number of individuals and companies with nylon netting solutions to accommodate both of these types of situations.  Sometimes the nets are being used for an athletic application, and other times a more unique commercial or industrial installation is the context.  And of course, a huge range of residential and small-scale uses are very popular also.

Over the last few weeks we have administered the design, fabrication, and shipments of an array of customized netting productions that each incorporate some sort of notch, portal, or cutout.  One aspect that is the same throughout each of the nets is that they all are built from the DuPont® twisted-knotted nylon netting, and have 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering sewn-in as needed.  Below are a few select examples of some of these latest nylon netting jobs that have these unique construction features:

Custom Netting Enclosures, Unique Features

It has been a very, very busy past few weeks - so unfortunately we haven't had a bunch of extra time in order to update this blog as consistently as we'd prefer!  We're also working on rolling out some really great new options for our customers through the Gourock.com site - and we'll get the newest information online within the next couple of weeks and will get some helpful background information posted here as well.  In the meantime, we did want to post a series of articles highlighting some of the unique netting productions that have been in the mix over the last month.

Some of the more popular types of customized netting productions that we administer for our customers are 3-dimensional netting enclosures.  These are DuPont® knotted nylon nets that include vertical walls and a top/ceiling net that are all rope-edged (seamed) together with Dacron® ropes.  Some common types of uses for netting enclosures are applications like baseball/softball batting cage nets and golf impact/containment cage nets.  Gourock has years of experience supplying a huge variety of custom cage nets for these types of uses - and our customers range from private customers to very high-end professional installations.  In addition to these typical netting uses, enclosure nets are also used for various uses like aviary and zoo installations, sports facilities, animal containment, landfill/trash containment, and a host of other highly specialized applications.  So if you want to get some pricing or potential options for your particular enclosure needs, certainly feel free to contact us with your details and we can get back to you with pricing and background information.

Here are some examples of some recent netting enclosures that have been manufactured and shipped out to some of our appreciated customers.  Each example features some unique design characteristics and sizing/shape requirements, and these will help provide some good context into some of the options that are available for your consideration:
