This is obviously a major concern for property owners that wish to feel secure at their own location and avoid all from all of these potential situations. Luckily, Gourock.com can very much contribute to a solution by being your source for Golf Barrier Netting. Golf barrier nets are nets that have a small enough mesh size to property block and contain golf balls that are coming-in from a typical hitting distance, without the mesh size being unnecessarily small (which will only increase netting weight, diminish visibility, and add product cost). Also, the twine thickness of golf barrier netting really does need to be relatively thin so that there aren't a lot of issues with wind shear/drag, or having too much netting weight (which can affect the installation poles and hardware, as well as adding cost for no real benefit). And thirdly, golf barrier nets are the type of product that generally get hung/installed with the intention of staying up all the time - so they need to be fabricated from a material that allows for continuous outdoor exposure for the long haul.
So a netting option that is strong, thin, light, dependable, with a low wind-shear. How about having it produced to most any customized dimensions that is needed for the job, and 100% Made in the USA?
Well at Gourock.com we have a perfect option for your consideration, which is the 1" mesh DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting. We supply this netting in a couple of different twine thicknesses:
- #18 (1.8mm, 191 lb./tensile)
- #12 (1.7mm, 116 lb./tensile)
The #18 X 1" nylon netting is the selection for most commercial or industrial installations - as its extra twine thickness and tensile strength allows for the material to retain at least 50% of its original tensile strength after 10 years of outdoor usage and exposure. This netting is the most recommended for driving ranges, commercial course fairways, municipalities, and other non-residential netting installations. That said - many, many people use the #18 at home and some commercial clients prefer to use the #12 at their facility. There is always personal preference involved based on expectations and pricing, so we do have both options readily available at Gourock.com for your convenience!
Now the majority of golf barrier nets are fairly straightforward rectangular or square-shaped panels that are produced according to the height and width that our customers need for their area. However, there are many times that the netting itself needs to be produced with even more customization in mind so that the material closely lines-up with existing structures, poles, or cabling supports that may already be in-place. We see this for both residential customers that are putting up a barrier netting that is going to hang form a roofline or gutter, and also of large golf driving ranges that have different height poles along their total length. Tapered and angled netting panels for both situations are facilitated and shipped by Gourock all the time, no problem at all! If you are in the position where you think that a more customized shape to the barrier netting is worth a consideration, certainly feel free to use the upload option on our contact page to forward over the labelled sketch/drawing of the netting panel that you are seeking and we can take a look and reply back with a quote for you (or - clarifying questions if required). Also, we do supply free samples of the 1" DuPont® nylon golf barrier netting as well - so as you're doing your research feel free to also send us a mailing address and we'll get the sample swatches in the mail for you.
