Drone Netting Installation at 2017 CES Tradeshow

Gourock.com supplies netting for many different types of drone and U.A.V. applications, and we have 4 particularly popular and recommended netting options available on the site for your consideration:

Drone netting that is supplied by Gourock is available to be ordered to most any specific widths and lengths that you require for your installation - and you can order it as "bulk mesh" material (netting-only, without any sort of finishing border), or as a finished netting panel that features a 5/16" braided polyester rope sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  The 4 netting recommendations on the Gourock.com site for drone nets and U.A.V. nets feature 2 mesh sizes:  1-3/4" and a larger 4" mesh.  And then each mesh size also has a thinner and thicker twine option available to consider.  So what this means is that depending on your particular drone application you have the option to go with something that is lightweight and as 'invisible' as possible, or for material that has extra thickness for increase expectations of abrasion and exposure to the elements.  No matter which netting type is selected, you can expect very high durability and dependability with a great ease-of-use.

Gourock.com specializes in supplying drone nets that are fabricated with high-end DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon.  This netting material has exceedingly strong tensile ratings, is UV stabilized and latex/urethane bonded against the elements, and is available to be built to most any custom sizing that is required for your application and installation project.  Drone nets are used for a pretty diverse range of users, including:

  • university and laboratory research
  • commercial drone-racing
  • airports and bases
  • government and military
  • trade shows and conventions
This past December we had posted an article regarding some very customized drone netting panels that were used for a vendor installation at the 2017 CES trade show in Las Vegas.  For some information on the netting type and design, you can refer to that previous article here: http://netting-gourock.blogspot.com/2016/12/drone-uav-netting-for-trade-shows.html

Here are some photos from the actual installation at the show, which provide great context into how that overall netting supply ended up - and you can use the netting supplied by Gourock for your own drone and U.A.V. barrier netting requirements.  The online shopping cart allows for very efficient and simple ordering of any 2-dimensional (square/rectangular) netting sizes and shapes that you need, as you type-in your sizes right into the Custom Netting Calculator.  But in addition to that, we also supply very specialized tapered shapes and designs as well - which are built to your particular needs.  For example, the nets used for this CES installation for instance.  In that case, simply drop a line through Gourock's contact page and you can request a quotation from us (and you have the opportunity to upload files as well).

Deer and Chicken Barrier Netting - Customer Photo

The netting options supplied by Gourock.com are used for a huge variety of different applications and uses, throughout many industries and users.  A couple of very popular product purposes are deer barrier netting, and bird/poultry barrier nets.

For deer barrier netting, the lighter-weight nylon nets with the larger mesh sizes are the most popular, functional, and recommended.  So the two selections that fulfill most all deer barrier netting orders are the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, and the #12 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  We supply these options according to most any dimensions you need, and they are composed of the highest quality DuPont® type 66-728 nylon.  100% Made in the USA, these nylon netting types maintain a very higher tensile strength rating while featuring the benefits of a relatively thin twine thickness.  This means you get a very strong and durable netting, while minimizing weight, visibility, effect of wind/elements, and cost.  The Gourock site does provide a deer netting specific page to reference, and it allows for the pricing/ordering of any sizing you need:

Bird barrier netting is quite diverse across the board, and there are many different recommended netting types and configurations based on the particular installation/customer.  Bird barrier netting is used at 

  • industrial locations
  • warehouses and hangars
  • zoos and aviaries
  • private residences
  • farms
  • landfill and recycling centers
  • mining and petroleum operations
  • stadiums
  • shops and markets
  • municipal and scholastic locations, as well as
  • many more unique and diverse environments


Gourock.com does bird exclusion nets in nearly every sizing imaginable, ranging from hundreds of feet for commercial clients, to small lengths and areas for private home users.  Just like the deer netting noted above, the Gourock site also has a dedicated page specific to bird netting options as well:

Deer and bird barrier netting are equally popular in both rural and urban environments, as both types of living areas have their own individual concerns with deer and birds.  A recent local customer here in Bellingham has a chicken coop and garden, and also a big need for both types of animal exclusion. For the deer netting, the primary purpose is to block-off the entire surrounding area to keep them from entering the garden area entirely.  And for the chickens, the surrounding deer barrier nets keep them contained within the overall space as well.  But in addition to that, we have a lot of predatory birds here in Bellingham, primarily eagles and hawks.  This customer, like many others in the same situation, require a bird exclusion netting to cover the top of the chicken coop area to keep the predatory falcons out.

Here is a provided photo of the garden/coop and the netting he installed.  The surrounding deer barrier net is the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, and it is suspended and hung between a series of general in-ground fence posts.  He used a spool of the #60 nylon twine to weave/lace through the top meshes of the netting, acting as a nice support and border for overall length of net.
The bird netting cover over the top is from the #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  At Gourock.com we can supply either of these particular netting types according to your preferred dimensions - no problem at all.

Looks really great Pat - thank you again!
