Custom Enclosure Nets for Professional Sports Installations

Many professional and commercial sports facilities require customized netting enclosures for their establishments, and Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom nylon netting productions for such installations.  A netting enclosure is a 3-dimensional product design featuring side, end, and ceiling nets that are all seamed together.  Contextually, a box/shell design in which balls and objects that are flying around the enclosed area are well-contained and do not leave the netted-in space.  Some commonly known applications for enclosed netting designs are baseball batting cage nets, and golf cage nets.  However, at Gourock.com we have supplied enclosures for many different sports and industrial purposes such as cricket, lacrosse, birds and aviary uses, drones and UAV containment, soccer, dodgeball, basketball, and specialty training needs.

Gourock.com can supply custom netting enclosures built to most any particular dimensions needed for the job, and you can specify the overall Height X Width X Length that is needed to be installed for your space.  For professional uses, we see nets of all sizes - since each application is unique and different.  Sometimes the netting is meant to encapsulate the entire area of a large warehouse or field-house facility.  Other times the netting is meant for a smaller space, such as a retail or office location - such as golf pro shops, administrative locations, or dedicated spaces meant for more individual practice needs.  And then in many other instances there are large outdoor areas that have permanent telephone/power-line poles installed that will be supporting very large outdoor containment nets such as golf driving ranges, drone racing facilities, and zoo/aviary/falconry establishments.  Gourock.com has quite a few netting mesh size and twine thickness options available to consider, so for the various different uses that require netting, we generally have a netting construction that will fit-the-bill well for your project.

Built from 100% Made-in-USA materials and hand-craftsmanship, the custom netting enclosure from Gourock.com feature DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon materials.  This is a very high-quality material that is known for very high tensile ratings and abrasion resistance, which makes it the preferred choice for commercial and professional establishments - for both outdoor and indoor uses.  And because the custom netting productions available from Gourock are made for your particular and specific job, there are usually other specific features that are often needed to be incorporated into the overall design such as entrance doors, divider nets, secondary impact panel nets, weighted bottom edges, additional ceiling attachment/connection lines, tapers or angles, and unique shape considerations.

We invite you to contact Gourock.com to inquire about quotations, netting samples, or general questions that you may have about sourcing a custom net for your establishment.  We work with customers of all types - ranging from very high-level professional clients, to university and municipality customers, to private individuals and small businesses.  Over the last couple months Gourock has facilitated the quoting, designing, production, and shipment of many unique netting enclosure jobs - and here are three examples of some of the professional and commercial nets that have more recently been manufactured and shipped to some of our appreciated customers:

Commercial Professional Batting Cage Nets, Custom Sizes and Features

For many years Gourock has been the professional and commercial source for high-end custom batting cage netting enclosures, for both full-time outdoor and indoor training facilities and organizations.  Built from very high quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, 100% fabricated in the USA, Gourock.com can supply your professional and commercial establishment with customized batting cage nets and netting enclosures that are fabricated to your own preferred sizing and with additional custom features or additions that you may need.  The nylon batting cage nets that we produce are installed at baseball and softball training facilities, university and scholastic baseball and softball facilities, professional baseball stadiums, commercial sports training and batting cage installations, and many other high-abrasion and high-traffic sports facilities that require netting.

For commercial baseball and softball batting cage netting and impact netting installations, the recommended twine and mesh selections are the #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon, and the thicker #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon.  Both are the DuPont® material, black in coloring, and have high tensile strength ratings and abrasion resistance.  The #36 nylon is a 2.5mm twine thickness with a 381 lb. tensile rating (breaking strength per twine).  The heavier option is the #72 with the 3.5mm twine thickness and 740 lb. tensile rating.  At Gourock.com you have the option to have batting cage netting enclosures produced to any dimensions that you need - and the Online Netting Calculator allows you to enter the height, width, and length preferred:

Many sports training facilities also have more customized requirements as well, in addition to needing specific dimensions and sizes.  For instance, many batting cage nets that are being installed for team training or commercial uses need to incorporate entrance doors located at particular areas of the netting.  Other times, the netting design is built with angles, tapers, or notches in-order to correctly fit specific spaces, rooflines, walls, or framing design details.  Other popular custom design features include additional ceiling line ropes and additions of separate divider panel nets.

Gourock supplies custom nylon netting productions that are built per-order, from 100% Made in the USA materials and craftsmanship.  Feel free to contact Gourock.com with requests on netting production availability and we can take a look at your request and quote some custom netting options for you.

Here are a couple of examples of commercial batting cage nets that were produced and shipped out in the last few weeks that incorporate many customized netting designs and requested custom features.  

EXAMPLE 1:
This custom batting cage net was built for a commercial baseball batting and training facility in South Plainfield, New Jersey.  It is an indoor installation that has a high-traffic consideration, so the material used for the job was the #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  This netting production has many customized design features, including:

  • tapered shape and sizing needs
  • notched end-panel construction to line-up with a fence/wall
  • extra ceiling line ropes
  • secondary double-layers of reinforcement netting built-in to both side wall
  • secondary double-layer of reinforcement netting built into the ceiling
This production was designed, quoted, fabricated, and shipped in 3 business weeks.  Here is the production drawing of this custom batting cage netting production that will help show the different construction and design features incorporated in this net:

EXAMPLE 2:
This custom batting cage net was built for an baseball organization in Chicago, Illinois.  This enclosure netting is being used as a batting cage hitting and training area for team and league practice purposes, and features the #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  This net also incorporates some more highly-customized characteristics, including:
  • extra wide width requirements
  • secondary double-layer of reinforcement netting built into the ceiling
This production was designed, quoted, fabricated, and shipped in 2.5 business weeks.  Here is the production drawing of this custom batting cage netting production that will help show the different construction and design features incorporated in this net:

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:
http://www.gourock.com/drone-netting-uav-nets.html

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).

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!

Custom Nylon Netting Golf Cage Nets and Batting Cage Nets

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of customized nylon netting productions that are constructed to most any particular dimensions that are required for your installation.  Some typical examples of custom nets are 2-dimensional barrier and protective netting panels, 2-dimensional sections of bulk netting lengths, tapered or uniquely-shaped netting panels, and also 3-dimensional custom netting enclosures.

The last product type listed (3-dimensional netting enclosures) are a very popular supply option for golf cage nets, batting cage nets, and multisport training nets that require a completely netted-off area.  Most custom enclosure nets include both side walls, both end-panels, and the ceiling netting all seamed-together with rope bordering and ready to hang/suspend within your framing structure or installation area (many times by being clipped to tensioned cables/wires).  However, since Gourock.com is able to facilitate a very wide variety of custom netting designs and options there are lots of other characteristics and features that are also available to be incorporated into the final product construction.  For instance, sometimes there are overlapping entrance doors built into the eating walls.  Other times there are additional ceiling lines or weighted-rope (leadline) bottoms sewn-in.  We have shipped out a lot of enclosure/cage nets that have an open-end, or an un-seamed/loose corner area to pass-through and enter the area.  Sometimes the overall shape has a taper or angle to it, or even something like a notched-out shape to correlate with the shape of the installation space.  We have many examples of custom cage nets and enclosure nets all throughout this company blog and also on the Gourock.com site - and the site does also include online batting cage net and golf cage net calculators for you to enter any dimensions that you prefer to have made!

Custom golf cage nets and batting cage nets are produced with the highest quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, and from a good variety of twine thicknesses and mesh sizes.  Custom nets from Gourock are 100% American Made, from the DuPont® nylon materials to the hand craftsmanship that gets them done.  Production timing is quite prompt, and pricing is very good from Gourock.com - especially for the premium nylon netting materials, products, craftsmanship, and custom options that are available to you.  Whether you are planning a custom net for a private installation, a commercial sports training business, or for a school/university/municipality purpose - feel free to contact us for a quotation!

Here are two examples from the last two weeks of custom nylon enclosure nets that we quoted, sold, produced, and shipped out.  These examples are for two completely different intended applications - but provide some good context on the different netting and construction features available to you as you do your research into custom nets!

Example 1
netting details:  #36 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon
custom features: enclosure design with expanded sizing/volume, 
3' overlapping entrance door, center-ceiling lines installed, rope bordering, weighted leadline bottom ropes, secondary layers of divider panel netting
intended use: baseball training and hitting facility


Example 2
netting details:  #21 X 3/4" twisted-knotted nylon
custom features: fully-enclosed netting design, 3' overlapping entrance door, center-ceiling line installed, rope bordering, weighted leadline bottom rope
intended use: private/residential golf driving and hitting containment

Custom Netting Panels Featuring Notches/Cut-Outs

Many of Gourock's customers have requirements for their custom netting productions that require some shape features that are unique for a particular installation need or use.  For instance, there are times that the netting is being hung or suspended within an area that has some beams, or rafters, or walls that get in the way of things.  Or - sometimes the netting needs to be able to allow objects to pass-through the area.  And sometimes the netting is being connected or laced to a specific framing structure that incorporates tapers or an angled shape/design.  For these sorts of considerations, Gourock can usually have the netting produced in a way that does take into account the customized shape features so that the final installation of the material has a professional appearance and fit.

Some recent examples of this are displayed below.  Each one of these examples helps provide you with some helpful context on the types of customization that is available from Gourock.com, and also the different types of customers that often need these sorts of nets.  If you have a situation where the netting would be best if it did have some unique shape features you can certainly contact Gourock.com and provide us with the details of what you are aiming for.  At that point we can provide some guidance, and provide a quotation on what we have available to have produced and shipped for you.  The following netting examples range from being quite large in finished sizing, to relatively small in area.  Some of them are for private/residential users, and some of them are for large industrial clients.  So no matter what the sizing or usage, you're invited to at least check out what Gourock can quote a supply and perhaps you'll be able to get a more specific fit and appearance for your netting job!

EXAMPLE 1
Netting: #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting
Custom Features: Notched cutout areas
Usage/Application:  Supermarket warehouse barrier netting

EXAMPLE 2

Nylon Netting Panels With Rope Riblines

Many netting installations have some specific or particular connection/hanging requirements that need to be taken into account.  For instance, a net may need to have the ability to be properly fastened or clipped to a set of existing cables, or to some posts/poles that are incorporated in the framing area.  Many times we hear from our customers that the netting that they'll be hanging will be wrapping around a set of posts for instance - or maybe the netting will be hanging horizontally and requires some additional connection points within the area of the mesh itself.  

Whatever the situation may be, a great solution is to have "riblines" sewn-in through the inner area of the netting.  Riblines are ropes that are woven through the mesh and are used as reinforced connection points for any sort of clipping/hanging that is needed during the final installation of the material.  So rather than clipping to the individual twines of the netting, you have a thick rope to hook to.  This increases the strength and long-term durability of the netting panel itself since the Dacron® rope is a much stronger clipping point than simply using the individual netting twine.  The rope riblines are essentially just like the regular rope borders that are sewn-in around the perimeter of the nets, but they run through the area rather than around the edges.

The netting productions from Gourock.com that feature rope riblines are used for a pretty wide variety of different applications.  We see them needed for backstop nets behind baseball and softball fields, for golf nets that are wrapping around different framing structures, on ceiling nets that are covering gymnasiums and sports facilities, on driving range and landfill nets that need additional connection points due to wind, and other various industrial or commercial installations that require central netting connections.

Generally speaking, the nylon nets that have riblines installed on them are built using the DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  The edges are rope bordered with 5/16" braided Dacron® ropes, which is what is also used for the central riblines as well.  Below are some recent examples of custom netting productions supplied by Gourock.com that have rope riblines installed on them, and they help provide some additional context into this sort of netting construction and finished product:

Custom Nylon Netting Enclosures - Commercial Applications

Gourock has been supplying custom netting enclosures for many different applications for many years - and that type of product is a company specialty.  Some of the most popular uses for enclosures that are built from netting are:
  • baseball, softball and golf containment installations
  • animal and bird barrier needs
  • general multipurpose sports containment (hockey, dodgeball, cricket, etc.)
There are many customers that require custom enclosure nets for private use or residential installations, and also a lot of commercial clients that have needs for customized enclosures for training facilities, businesses, collegiate, professional, and high-abrasion applications.  Gourock.com can quote and supply most any height X width X length that a particular netting enclosure may need - and not only that, there are often many different unique features or characteristics that can be included in the production of the final product as well.  For instance - many of the unique nets that have been manufactured and shipped over the years have included aspects like:
  • additional upper ceiling line ropes
  • tapered sizing and changes in shape
  • netting entrance flaps
  • "open" ends and "loose corner" end panels
  • extended rope tails (for hanging/suspending)
These nets are built from the DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, which is a very high end and premium material.  Typical mesh sizes are 3/4" (to contain smaller objects such as golf balls) and 1-3/4" (typical for baseball-sized objects and larger).  There are a variety of different twine thicknesses available to consider - and for commercial high-abrasion applications the thickest twines are most preferred to maximize the overall durability of the netting over time and use.

The reasons why customized netting is often required for commercial and professional clients have a lot to do with the available space available within an indoor facility - or the sizing/spacing required to accurately fit the netting within a framing support structure that is already in-place or that is under construction.  It's not too much different than dealing with custom netting panels (such as around a stadium, driving range, or field) with the primary difference being that the job requires consideration of a 3-dimensional area (sides, ends, and ceiling).  Additionally, many of the other unique features that are often integrated into the finished netting production are included due to client preferences of installation technique and other particular needs.

Certainly feel free to drop us a line and contact us with your sizing and initial details of what your aiming for, and we can get a quote together for what we have available to supply and have produced for your custom netting needs.

Here are a couple of examples from the last month showing some interesting 3-dimensional nets produced and shipped for commercial/professional sports facilities:

Example 1:
This is a golf cage net featuring high strength #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting, custom dimensions, a tapered/angled shape, and the addition of a supplemental impact net to increase the amount of material covering the back primary hitting area:


Example 2:
This is a commercial batting cage facility netting construction featuring a very heavy-weight #84 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting, custom dimensions, a tapered/angled height aspect, custom ceiling lines, and a 'split' design to account for installation framing beams that needed to be taken into account during the hanging of the netting:

Netting & Nets With Tapers & Angles

There are many different types of netting and mesh materials available to source through Gourock.com, and lots of them can be manufactured with some customized features and shapes.  Due to the very wide spectrum of applications that netting is used for, there is generally a very functional solution for most any particular need.  Gourock offers very small mesh size materials (for instance, the industrial fabrics) and proceeds with a product line that spans numerous different twine thicknesses and mesh sizes all the way up to something quite thick and heavy (like the #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting).  So for a large variety of uses, there is a robust selection of materials and sizes to consider.

Another aspect of custom netting supply is when our customers and clients require customized shapes for their job.  For instance - once customer may need to barricade a slanted or angled area of their roofline, while another customer is matching a netting panel with an installed set of connection wires or cables.  There are many, many instances where a rectangular or square-shaped netting panel will not suffice to complete the job with the intended end result.  So, that's where Gourock's capability to supply specialized shapes really becomes a benefit for our customers.  Should you wish to pursue some of the opportunities available for customized netting panels that feature tapers or angles, certainly feel free to contact us with some of your general details and context and we can take a look at it for you.  Forwarded drawings and diagrams (with general dimensions) always help as well.

Here are some recent examples of some netting and mesh productions that were produced and shipped out to different customers of ours that all required customized and particular shapes.  Ranging from private-use residential customers, to industrial facilities and commercial establishments, each of these nets were designed and built to fulfill a specific need and space.

A couple of Unique Polyester Fabric Productions

Throughout the years Gourock.com has supplied thousands of custom netting productions and designs, and many great examples can be referred to throughout this company blog, as well as on our website.  We do have another product line as well that has been gaining some traction in the custom-fabrication aspect of business as well.  These are the Industrial Fabrics, and they include both polyester and polyethylene materials.  These are great materials that feature very small mesh sizes, which make them very popular for debris and containment applications - as well as for a lot of multipurpose uses that require a more "screening/fabric" sort of material rather than a larger netting mesh configuration.

Although more limited in the available scope of custom shape/design opportunities than the knotted nylon, there are often very unique productions that do get manufactured for our customers from these fabrics.  Because they have a few more production limitations involved with them, should you want to consider the possibilities of a custom design from these fabrics it would be good to contact us first to see what might be available or possible.

The 449 Impact Polyester is one of these industrial fabrics that features very abrasion-resistant polyester material with a small 3/16" elongated mesh size.  It's great for a lot of athletic uses (hitting targets, reinforcement material, impact panels, etc.), but is also quite popular for construction and transportation clients as well.

Here is an example of a custom production that was built and shipped in the last week from the 449 Polyester.  These nets are being used as trailer/truck cover nets to contain materials within the bed of the fleet vehicles during travel.  The finished product features nylon webbing edges with brass grommets every 12" all around, and they are fabricated to a specified set of dimensions (to fit the customer's space) and as a 3-dimensional product.

Square Nylon Nets With Portals

There are many types of netting installations that require the finished product to feature a portal through the central area of the panel.  Often these portals are used to allow for objects to pass-through the netting while maintaining a protective barrier for the surrounding area (for instance, softball and baseball pitching machines), whereas another common instance is when some piece of structural equipment (like an air conditioner unit for example) needs to be accounted for as the netting itself is hanging over a particular region.  Gourock.com has supplied dozens of custom nets that feature customer-specified portal locations, and they all have had pretty unique purposes - but the end result always allows for our customers to maintain the flexibility of getting their protective barrier netting hung-up while taking into account their requirements for objects to easily breach the mesh as needed.

Gourock can quote and supply customized nets that integrate portals according to most any particular dimensions that you are aiming for.  Using the DuPont® knotted nylon netting and the 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering is very beneficial because there is a very wide range of twine thicknesses and mesh sizes to select from, and the final result is a net that is reinforced on all edges with extremely durable braided rope (sewn-in). 
The following drawings help demonstrate 5 different custom nylon netting productions for different clients over the last few weeks that have customized portal locations in their design.  Most of these nets were built from either the #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting, or the thicker #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting for maximum abrasion resistance and strength.

If you need a quotation on something similar, feel free to contact us with your details and we can take a look at it for you!

Over the last few weeks things have been exceedingly busy with hundreds of appreciated holiday shoppers - but also with a large number of commercial/professional customers that run indoor training facilities, sporting event businesses, school/university programs, and similar organizational enterprises.  Here are 5 recent selected examples of some custom nylon netting enclosures that we facilitated and shipped out over the last few weeks.  Each has a unique collection of twine/mesh sizes, dimensions, and custom features.  So take a look at some of these finished jobs, and maybe they will help you out as you continue your research into netting solutions available to you through Gourock!
