Custom Nylon Netting for Industrial Applications

Gourock.com supplies custom nylon netting to a wide variety of customers that have unique applications and uses for the materials that we have available.  Oftentimes, the nets we ship out are used for more traditional jobs such as stadiums, gymnasiums, and sports fields.  Other very popular needs are for bird exclusion, pond barrier, and golf range/fairway barrier uses.  But aside from some of the more typical types of netting installations, there are always many industrial situations where the nylon netting we provide is meant to solve a very particular set of circumstances.

Typically we see a lot of these more specific needs within the broad range of general industrial netting applications.  Nylon netting is really well suited for many industrial locations such as warehouses, processing facilities, construction sites, municipal locations, and business/retail complexes.  Gourock.com has a pretty wide range of twine thicknesses and mesh sizes available to consider using for your unique needs - and the netting is prepared per-order so that you have the ability to get nets made to your own preferred sizing and dimensions.  Some examples that we have experience in are:

  • pallet rack and conveyor belt nets
  • railing and loft barrier nets
  • debris barrier and containment uses
  • lighting protection nets
  • warehouse divider netting
Recently, we had a customer at a commercial business/retail location that was experiencing a series of problems with the brick facade of their building.  Due to some construction design issues they were occasionally having pieces of tiling becoming dislodged from the wall of the building and falling a couple of stories down to the sidewalk below.  The facade was going to be reinforced and fixed, but in the meantime they needed to ensure that a loose tile would be able to freely fall down and cause safety issues for the pedestrians on the ground.

Their preference was for a strong material that had a larger mesh size, and a minimally visible appearance.  The best match was the #15 X 4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  The #15 twine thickness features a 144 lb. tensile strength rating, and the 4" mesh size keeps the amount of material per square foot to a minimum.  The tiles are all about 12" square, so the mesh size of the 4" functions very well to contain them close to the wall in the event they come loose and fall down.  The netting was basically intended to be a debris cover to protect anyone down on the sidewalk and to keep the falling tiles as close to the facade wall as possible.

Here is a short series of photos demonstrating this unique usage of the nylon netting that we supply at Gourock.com - and you can always feel free to order online through our Online Custom Netting Calculator or contact us for a quote if you prefer!
