Drone Netting Installation at 2017 CES Tradeshow 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 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. 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:

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).

Custom Netting Panels, Specialized Shapes for Larger Areas specializes in the supply of customized netting productions, and many times the nets that are required by our customers need to have some very particular and unique sizing and shape characteristics.  A lot of custom nets do the job really well when they are constructed to square or rectangular shapes that are produced to most any particular dimensions that are preferred - such as the readily available options displayed on Gourock's Online Netting Calculator.  However, there are many instances in many industries in which the customization of final netting shape needs to be more specific and very unique.  And then in addition to more specialized shape considerations, there are many situations where the netting is meant to cover or span over a larger area as well.  For some context on this, think of netting that is meant to cover a specifically shaped warehouse optioning, stadium spectator area, or an industrial retention pond for instance.

Larger nets with custom shapes, dimensions, and fabrication features are available for Gourock to quote and supply to you, providing you the opportunity to have specifically created netting panels made-to-order that will be the best solution for your particular problem or project goal. has years and years of experience with supplying custom netting productions for a very wide spectrum of industries and customers including those in athletics, municipalities and scholastics, agricultural, warehousing and logistics, vendor and trade-show installations, government and military, mining and heavy industry, and more.  Custom netting is a very far reaching and widely applied solution for a diverse population of industries, companies, and users - and Gourock is a specialty supplier of the highest quality Made in USA custom netting products.

As we have noted many times within this company blog as well as on the website, netting productions that we ship out can be quite unique and built to all different combinations of dimensions and shapes.  For instance, see this recent article on our blog that helps demonstrate some very specifically constructed custom netting shapes intended for smaller-sized areas.  This following set of examples is pretty similar in intention and need, with the difference being that these nets below have a lot larger area involved since they are needed for large spaces.  As with those previous examples of the smaller-area nets, these following nets all square some typical characteristics as well:
  • each are larger in total size area, since they are built to block/protect an expansive overall space
  • each features a custom shape characteristic, specifically a taper or angle to correctly function for the specific area that needs to be blocked by netting
  • each features a 5/16" polyester rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges, which adds strength and durability around the edges and also holds the netting into its specific shape and size
  • each are built from the DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, using the best combination of twine thickness and mesh size for the intended purpose for the net
A good way to get started on choosing the netting that is best-suited for your purpose is to take a look at the mesh size and twine thickness options that we have available to consider on this page of the Gourock website.  And then you can also use the contact page on the Gourock site to upload a diagram/drawing and forward it over to us to take a look at - and then we can quote some available options for your consideration.  You can also use the same contact page to request some sample pieces of different netting types, we mail them out at no charge.

Custom Netting for Sports Training Facilities

Sports training facilities and athletic stadiums generally require custom netting in order to solve a variety of safety and protective situations.  For instance, many indoor sports training facilities require netting in order block or barricade certain areas of the space for individual practice zones.  In other cases, there are nets that are needed as a barrier to protect spectators or bystanders from flying balls or gaining equipment.  And other times the netting is necessary to protect structural elements of the facility area itself - for example lighting and seating barrier applications, scoreboard protection, and parking lot or vendor area protection needs.  In fact, there are many unique and individual needs for netting - and every sports stadium or training facility has its own set of situations that are very well solved with the installation of customized netting productions available from

Throughout the years, we at Gourock have supplied many, many training facilities and sports stadiums with their customized netting solutions ranging from indoor multi-sport commercial establishments to major universities and professional stadiums, as well as upstart private sports business and municipal/scholastic installations. supplies a wide variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses, all made per-order according to customized sizing and shape needs.  The mesh and twine options for the netting selections will be applicable for different types of sports and uses.  For instance if a gymnasium or sports facility is primarily concerned with barrier netting for larger object sports like basketball, soccer, football, volleyball, or dodgeball - then a bigger mesh size netting option like the 4" opening is a popular selection.  Alternatively, many sports facilities also need barrier and containment netting for smaller-sized sports balls as well such as baseball, tennis, softball, field hockey, and lacrosse.  In this case the 1-3/4" mesh size nylon netting is a good considerations.  And then going even smaller, for training facilities that also want to include sports like golf, Gourock has 3/4" mesh netting options available as well.

And then, aside from the options of mesh size that you can consider for your sports barrier netting needs, there are different twine thickness available to go with as well.  Lighter weight (thinner) twine thicknesses like #12 or #15 are great for general containment, or light/moderate abrasion situations.  Mid-range twine thicknesses like #21 and #30 are the most commonly selected for all-purpose situations.  And then thicker twine thicknesses like #36 and #72 are generally popular for netting installations that expect to undergo a fairly consistent level of high-abrasion wear and impacts over time.  
Gourock does mail out free netting samples for your research and information, so if you do want to get some samples of the materials that you are considering, feel free to drop over a message through our contact page with your mailing address to get the samples mailed your way (USA locations).

Through our Online Netting Calculator you can very easily price and order netting built to most any dimensions that you require - it's a very refined and efficient process that allows for quick ordering and sourcing of custom netting prepared to your own specific sizing needs.  But for many commercial installations and at sports training facilities, there are very unique sizing and shape requirements that our customers need for their netting productions.  For instance, many baseball and softball stadiums need some of the nets to incorporate tapers or angles in the netting shape so that the material can fill-in odd-shaped areas.  Or in some cases there need to be special finishing or production features incorporated into the final design - such as entry door areas, particular bordering necessities, or internal wind-lines or attachment ropes that run through the netting in certain locations. has a lot of experience supplying very customized netting designs and shapes/sizes - and feel free to send us over a request through our contact page (you can upload diagrams, images, and details as needed) and we can get started on a quotation for your particular goals.

Throughout this company blog as well as on the site we have many examples of custom netting designs and productions that have been shipped out over the years.  Here are 3 recent examples form the previous few weeks that demonstrate some of the very specific custom netting jobs that have been delivered and installed at 3 different types of sports training facilities.  These are all very different, and are each for unique situations - and they help in demonstrating some of the custom nylon netting productions available through

Pallet Rack Guard Netting, Customized Nets

Pallet rack guard netting is available from for custom fabrication according to any particular dimensions needed. Safety netting for warehouse storage racks, flue spaces, and pallet racking is very beneficial for product retention and employee protection from falling objects. 

Typical mesh size selections for pallet rack nets range from 1-3/4” to 4”, and there are a variety of twine thicknesses to consider. A good general/moderate strength option to consider is the #21 X 1-3/4” nylon netting, or the #30 X 4” nylon netting. Heavy duty pallet rack guard nets are often the #36 X 1-3/4” nylon netting, or the #72 X 1-3/4” nylon. And for warehouse rack nets that need different coloring selections, the #40 X 2” nylon netting is a good selection for color features and options. 

Warehouse pallet rack guard nets are generally recommended to be ordered with a rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges, which is an option available right through our online netting calculator. Rope bordering adds a significantly stronger attachment edge for installation of the safety nets to your existing pallet rack framing, or to offset brackets that are already mounted.

Custom Conveyor Belt Netting

Containment and protective barrier netting for conveyor belt applications is available to order from according to your own custom dimensions and sizing. Conveyor belt safety netting is a helpful solution for protecting objects that may possibly be ejected off the traveling line in some fashion, but containing them on the belt or by blocking them from falling underneath the belt. 

Conveyor belt containment and protective netting is popular for industrial, warehouse, manufacturing, and logistical/shipping types of locations and installations. Many nets are installed vertically around conveyor belts, to keep objects contained as they travel. Whereas other nets are hung or suspended underneath conveyor belts to catch objects that may fall off or slip through the belt. 

There are many different mesh and twine sizes available for conveyor belt containment netting purposes, ranging from small 1/4” mesh sizes all the way up to larger 4” mesh sizes. Depending on the sizes and weights of the typical objects/parcels that you are looking to contain within the conveyor belt area, you can select the strength of material and mesh size that will be the best fit for you. Netting can be ordered according to most any specific dimensions or sizing that you require for the project. 

Some historically popular conveyor belt containment netting selections are 1/4” polyester mesh, 3/4” knotted nylon netting, and 1-3/4” knotted nylon netting. Whether you are seeking replacement conveyor guard nets, or passive overhead protective nets, we have dependable custom net options for your conveyor belt safety applications.

Leaf Barrier Netting and Debris Nets, Bocce Court Example

Many of our customers that are seeking custom netting solutions are doing so because they are dealing with leaves and debris covering various areas of their property or land.  Some pretty commonplace examples of this type of situation are nets that are blocking leaves from ponds, pools, lawns, or property boundaries.  At we have many different available options for your consideration that are very effective for leaf, pond, and debris barrier - and you can view this part of the site for more information on the generally recommended netting selections, as well as their pricing and production options.

One of the smallest mesh size offerings that we have available is the 1/4" polyester debris material - and this is a great option to consider for block smaller-sized leaves and general debris-type objects.  The 1/4" polyester fabric is very well suited for long-term outdoor exposure, it has a high resiliency against tearing and/or punctures, and is a lightweight fabric that is easy to work with so that you can accomplish your goal with dependable results.

Recently we assisted a customer that was tired of picking up and raking leaves out of his home bocce court in Pennsylvania.  The court measures 12' X 48' in total area, and his primary objective was to use the 1/4" polyester netting with a rope bordering sewn-around the edges, along with Gourock's Bungee Ball Straps, to suspend the netting over the top of the court for all times that it is not being used.  He wanted the netting to catch and contain all of the falling leaves from surrounding trees, and prevent them from actually accumulating inside his court and on-top of the playing surface.  This would mean he could dramatically reduce the amount of time set aside for prep and cleanup of the court area, and increase the amount of actual playing time.

Our customer opted to order the material slightly wider than needed, in order to have enough material on-hand to adjust the fit and installation as preferred - so he went for a 13' X 48' rope bordered panel, built from the 1/4" polyester.  He noted that he's still tinkering with the suspension and hanging method he most prefers for the netting, but that the end result of blocking leaves from the court surface is functioning very, very well and he is quite happy with the results.  He forwarded over some example photos of his bocce court both with and without the barrier netting installed - and it looks like a very nice and functional finished project!

Thanks again David, looks great - and we appreciate your business and feedback very much!

A Couple of Interesting Custom Batting Cage Nets

Baseball and softball batting cage nets can be found at people's private homes, at schools and park/rec departments, universities, stadiums, and training facilities.  For many, many years has supplied hundreds of customers with batting cage nets that are best suited for that user's particular needs.  Most batting cage nets are constructed in a fairly basic netting "tunnel" design, with a consistent height X width X length.  Different types of netting materials and strengths are available, and most customers pick a net that best aligns with their sizing needs, their expected amount of wear-and-tear, and of course their preferences on pricing. offers a great selection of high-quality batting cage nets that perform very well for all types of different installations and users - and you can get a good context on these "typical" netting designs on this part of our site.

But there is another side to batting cage netting, which generally leans towards customized designs and sizing requirements.  There are a few primary situations in which the customized batting cage netting productions are often needed - with the main one being that there is an existing installation structure or area that is unique in shape or size and the only functional way to get a net hung correctly is to have it built to best match the space.  We see this often with commercial baseball and softball training facilities, as well as a lot of indoor installations.  Another typical situation in which the batting cage netting needs to be more customized is for "plus sized" nets.  This is typically an installation that requires extra height, width, and length - usually for multiple training/hitting areas in a row.  Separate divider panel nets usually accompany the enclosure netting for these types of orders. has custom batting cage nets constructed from the highest quality materials, including DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, and braided Dacron® ropes.  Featuring 100% Made in the USA materials and craftsmanship, and quick manufacturing turnaround, custom netting and enclosures from Gourock are available to be produced according to most any sizing specifications that you have for your project, business, facility, school/team, or municipal organization.

Here are a couple of examples from this spring that show some of the customized features and designs that we are capable of providing for batting cage netting enclosures.  These are both for commercial training facilities and have various unique characteristics that were requested by our customers so that the finished product fit their particular installation areas the best.

Example 1:
twine/mesh: #21 X 1-3/4" Knotted Nylon Netting
overall dimensions: 12' high X (9'/21') wide X 68' long
custom features: (2x) overlapping netting entrances/doors, leadline bottom edge, extra ceiling lines, custom tapered shape, extra/separate divider divider panel
application: commercial baseball/softball facility

Example 2:
twine/mesh: #21 X 1-3/4" Knotted Nylon Netting
overall dimensions: 16' high X 26' wide X 70' long
custom features: overlapping netting entrance/door, extra ceiling lines, extra height/width

A Recent Custom Art/Sail Project

One of the unique aspects of being in the netting industry is that there are so many different uses and applications for the materials, and we encounter many customers that utilize mesh and netting for art projects and alternative uses.  It's always great to hear about the different gallery, loft, and museum applications for netting, as well as all of the television, film, and theatre production uses too.  And of course there are tons of private individuals that have their own specific project in-mind, and at we're glad to be a source for functional netting materials that people can depend on for their artistic endeavors.

A recent local customer from the Puget Sound region worked with us to attain a certain type of mesh that he was seeking for his custom sailboat graphical sail project.  After going through a couple of samples and a few different supply options, the 1/4" Hex Mesh Polyester material was chosen to be the best candidate for the job.

After our customer figured out the sizing that he required for the project, we had the material prepared to the overall dimension needed and shipped it down his way.  From there on out he already had a plan in-mind for further fabrication, shaping, and painting of the polyester mesh.

Here is a photo of the completed project that was forwarded up our way - it looks great Jeremy!

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, 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 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!

Netting & Nets With Tapers & Angles

There are many different types of netting and mesh materials available to source through, 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 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.
