Drone & U.A.V. Netting for Trade Shows & Conventions

Gourock.com supplies customized netting productions for many drone and UAV barrier applications, ranging from research installations at university laboratories all the way to commercial and industrial facilities.  Another very popular and unique installation use for drone and UAV barrier nets is at convention centers and trade shows.

The netting types that are most typically used for drone netting are available to order according to most any dimensions that you need on the Drone Netting page on Gourock.com
Mesh sizes of 1-3/4" and 4" are generally the most recommended for many drone netting uses, including those at convention center and trade show displays.  Because Gourock specializes in the supply of custom netting built to your particular sizing needs, there are many opportunities for you to incorporate nylon netting within your trade show display construction.  Protective safety barrier netting is generally a requirement for commercial drone and UAV installations - and the DuPont® type 66-728 knotted nylon netting that is supplied by Gourock.com is a perfect solution for customized and specialized drone displays.  Nylon is very lightweight and flexible, with a very high tensile-strength characteristic.  Relatively thin nylon twine thicknesses retain high breaking strengths, allowing you to minimize the amount of material-per-twine for the barrier netting.  This means a lower visual impedance and increased ease-of-installation.  And since you can have custom sizing provided for your show and installation, you can work with custom-built nets made to-size that save time during setup and increase the overall efficiency of your job.

In addition to the nylon netting being optimal for trade show drone netting installations because of it's physical features, Gourock.com also provides custom-built nets that incorporate very specific shapes and tapered designs.  For instance, there are many times that a finished netting panel that has a triangular shape or a pattern like a hexagon will be needed to accurately match the framing structure of the overall display.  And since these types of displays are usually marketing-oriented, the overall appearance of the finished look is an important consideration.  Using Gourock.com you can have very specific nets fabricated to unique sizes and angled shapes, enhancing the professional appearance of the drone display and enhancing the overall product demonstration and brand identity.

Here is a very recent example of a drone display designed and constructed by a professional marketing firm, for a technology vendor at the 2017 CES show.  This very high-end display required drone barrier netting to encapsulate the entire upper area of the structure - which is the drone flight zone.  10 customized netting panels and shapes were needed to complete this display job, and the netting that was selected for this project was the #21 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon netting, diamond mesh pattern, with a 5/16" polyester rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  As you can see from the product images below, the nets were constructed with specific dimensions and tapers to match the corresponding spaces of the flight pen area.

At Gourock we can certainly assist on the netting aspects of your trade show and convention center displays - especially for drone and UAV barrier purposes.  We do not advise or design the framing and structural aspects of the display itself - that is generally done by professional marketing and display designers - however you can certainly consider Gourock.com for the netting component of the overall job.  Feel free to use the contact page on our site to upload and submit any sizing or quote requests that you're interested in, and we look forward to assisting!
