Driveway Basketball Barrier Netting - Customer Photos

Many people have basketball hoops and shooting areas on their residential driveways, and for many different reasons they need to barricade and contain the balls within the surrounding space.  Not only does chasing missed shots and rolling balls waste a lot of time and energy, it also become pretty tedious as well!  Especially considering a lot of the driveway basketball practice areas are close to hills, woods, ravines, other buildings and structures, streams and ponds, and of course roads and traffic.

A great solution to alleviate the inconveniences of chasing arrant basketballs is to use a barrier netting setup around the playing area.  Gourock.com supplies netting that works perfectly for this use, and there are numerous different options to consider hanging up.  Most typical for larger object containment (basketball, volleyball, soccer, etc.) is the 4" mesh knotted nylon netting.  For people that want to block larger objects as well some smaller balls as well (tennis, baseball, street hockey, softball, etc.) there is the 1-3/4" mesh knotted nylon netting that is fantastic to go with.  The nylon netting available from Gourock.com is 100% made in the USA, prepared per-order according to your own preferred custom dimensions, and is a very high-quality durable netting option for longterm installations.  You can take a look at these nets at this page of the Gourock website - and free netting samples are also available to mail out if requested.

Below are 4 photos that were forwarded to us from a recent customer that hung the nylon barrier netting around 3 sides of his backyard court area using the In-Ground Steel Poles that we also have available.  The netting he selected was the multipurpose #21 X 1-3/4" DuPont® twisted-knotted nylon netting, square mesh pattern with a rope bordering, in the dimensions of 10' X 70'.  He then used a series of the In-Ground Steel Poles and Sleeves spaced around the perimeter area to hang the netting from, and used Gourock Bungee Ball Straps to adjust the fit and tension of the netting to match his preferences.

As you can see, the black nylon netting and the black poles do a fantastic job of blending-into the background environment, which keeps the overall installation as minimally visible as possible.  And of course, the nylon netting and poles are designed to be durable and dependable for many years of consistent use and exposure.

This is a great-looking installation and court Bryan!  Thank you again very much - we appreciate it!

Basketball Barrier Net with Poles - Customer Photos

Gourock.com supplies many different nets for customers that seek solutions to barricade and block basketballs within their practice area.  Using a basketball barrier netting setup at your location has many advantages over time, since you won't waste much time or energy chasing missed shots and errant balls.  In addition, there are a lot of general safety enhancements as well, considering that rolling basketballs may potentially enter a high traffic area, or wooded areas that may have situations with poison ivy, ticks, or other similar avoidances.

We have many options available to consider for the barrier netting used for basketball applications, both for private residential properties as well as for commercial, municipal, and organizational purposes.  One recent customer of ours sent over a couple photos of his basketball netting setup that he installed at his house.  His hoop and court area had a corner and a back-end that he needed to block errant balls from passing through, since there was a neighbor's fence on one side to avoid damaging, and then a small hill that caused the balls to roll an unnecessary distance from the court.  His preference was a netting solution that would be dependably durable over time, but also be as minimally visible as possible.  The best product match for his use was the #15 X 4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, black color, square mesh with a rope bordering around the perimeter edges.

The #15 X 4" nylon netting is the best selection because it has a larger mesh size of 4" square, making it great for large objects like basketballs, soccer balls, and volleyballs.  Also, it has a thin twine thickness of 1.8mm.  So combining those 2 characteristics means that you have the largest mesh size option possible, made from the thinnest twine thickness available, which very much minimizes the overall amount of netting material within the entire area.  That makes it as "invisible" as can expected, but at the same time it retains a high durability due to the high tensile strength characteristic of nylon material.  The #15 is only 1.8mm thick, but has a tensile rating (breaking strength) of 144 lb./twine.  Very strong, very lightweight, and very dependable for basketball barrier nets.  100% Made in USA.

Our customer also utilized the In-Ground Steel Poles that we have available at gourock.com to purchase.  He used a series of our poles, in conjunction with some of our Bungee Ball Straps, to get a very even and taught netting appearance throughout the entire area.  These are also great to moderate the amount of netting displacement, movement, and reaction to wind.

Here are a couple of photos submitted to us demonstrating the finished product and installation.

It looks really great John!!  Thanks again very much, we appreciate your business and feedback!!

Basketball Barrier Netting, Customer Photos

Gourock.com supplies nylon netting for basketball barrier installations for all kinds of different users, ranging from large commercial clients to private residential customers.  There are a lot of really great options available, from a variety of twine thicknesses and mesh sizes - and since the nylon nets are prepared per-order, you have the ability to order any sizing needed for your project.  We have some good netting type selections to take a look at on the Basketball Barrier Netting section of the Gourock site:

One of the most popular selections for home-use and commercial-use basketball barrier netting is the 4" mesh size twisted-knotted nylon netting.  This is a black-colored, square mesh pattern netting - constructed from the DuPont® type 66-728 nylon, and is 100% Made in the USA.  There are a couple of options for twine thickness, so that you can go with a lighter-weight net (#15, 1.8mm) or a heavier-weight (#30, 2.3mm) depending on your preferences and expected usage.
Gourock prepares either of those netting options either with or without a 5/16" rope bordering installed around the perimeter edges - so you can have the material supplied as "bulk" cut sections, or as finished and bordered netting panels.

The 4" nylon netting works really well when installed between Gourock's In-Ground Steel Poles, which is a pole/support system that utilizes a ground sleeve/anchor and 2" pole components.  You can view details and installation details about these netting installation poles here:

Many people need barrier netting around their property, driveways, or sport-courts in order to contain basketballs within the play area.  This is often due to safety reasons (for instance, keeping balls from rolling into traffic, or out of wooded areas that may have ticks), for convenience (keeping balls from rolling down hills or driveways), and for consideration of neighbors or surrounding property.  There are 4 different heights available, which are 8', 10', 12', and 14'.  The netting used to hang between the poles can be any length - so you can get as much barrier netting coverage area as you prefer - spacing the poles every 10'-12', which is the recommended placement interval.

Here is a series of photos from one of our recent customers that utilized Gourock's steel poles and nylon netting to complete his basketball barrier netting setup at his home.  You can click on the images to see them larger - and you can get a good idea of how minimally visual all of the materials and poles are.  
He went with the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting with a perimeter rope bordering installed.  And the netting is connected/spanned between three of the 10' in-ground poles.  And you can also see a personalized addition that he made to increase the tension/fit of the netting by designing a general guy-wire support from some rope, stakes, and hooks.

Looks really great John - thank you again!
