Custom Golf Cage Netting

Golf cage nets are often needed to be constructed to a more customized set of dimensions and features, depending on our customer's preferences.  Whether or not they are to be installed indoors or outdoors, the custom nylon golf cage nets supplied by Gourock.com are a very dependable and durable product for a wide range of intended applications.

Built from the DuPon®t type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, and in a 3/4" mesh size for direct golf ball impacts, these custom nets can be fabricated from a general-use #15 (1.7mm, 144 lb.twine) thickness, or the heavier/thicker #21 (2.0mm, 241 lb./twine).  For either option, it's generally recommended for most all users to utilize a secondary layer of end-panel netting in order to accommodate for the disproportionate amount of abrasion that the shots will incur on the back-end.  This secondary impact net is generally made from the #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon.

Aside from specific dimensions, there are often other additional fabrication features that a lot of the custom nets have incorporated within their design.  The following example is a recently produced custom golf cage net, which has the following materials and characteristics:
  • #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon enclosure netting
  • #21 X 3/4" secondary impact net
  • 5/16" rope borders top/corners
  • weighted leadline bottom edge
  • rings installed on the top perimeter
  • custom dimensions (height X width X length)

Custom Nylon Nets Featuring Rope Riblines

Over the last few weeks there have been hundreds of customized nylon netting productions supplied by Gourock for a very wide range of customers and users.  From private and individual persons to large professional/commercial clients, nylon netting panels and fabrications have been produced and shipped out for dozens of unique applications and intended uses.  Many of the nets that are required to be manufactured include interesting features and details, mainly to enhance the feasibility of the final installation and the overall preferences of the user for whatever the netting is intended to accomplish.

One of the popular and useful features that is consistently included on many custom nylon netting jobs is a construction addition known as a "ribline".  Riblines are ropes that are sewn within the internal area of the mesh, and they add additional opportunities to clip/connect the netting to the structure or cabling that is to support it.  Gourock.com can quote and supply netting panel designs that feature rope riblines with nets that are constructed from the DuPont® Type 66-728 knotted nylon netting.  There are 3 mesh sizes, and multiple twine-thicknesses available in that material - so there will most always be an option that will be best suited for your intended application.

Here are some recent examples of nylon netting panels that were constructed with internal riblines:
