Indoor Basketball Nets, Court Divider Netting

Gourock.com supplies divider and barrier nets for many gymnasiums and basketball courts.  Popular uses for netting installations in a court or gym environment are as divider panels between different game or practice areas, as barrier nets to contain basketballs within specific court areas, and protective nets to block lights, scoreboard, and spectator spaces from errant shots or rolling balls.  Many of our customers that require basketball court divider nets are scholastic or municipal applications, and there are also many colleges, professional, and commercial facilities that need barrier nets and protective netting as well.

Because the netting available from Gourock.com is custom prepared per-order, you can get very specifically made nets that will fit your particular area - according to your own particular sizes.  We use the highest quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, which has many great benefits for indoor basketball court divider net installations.  The custom nylon nets from Gourock.com are:

  • prepared to your own specific sizes
  • very strong and dependable for longterm usage
  • lightweight and very user-friendly
  • available in a variety of mesh size and twine thickness combinations to best suit your preferences and barrier requirements
  • manufactured and shipped promptly with short lead-times and delivery right to your preferred location
  • perfect for all commercial, professional, scholastic, municipal, and residential installations
There are a couple of most typical and popular mesh sizes for basketball barrier nets from Gourock, which are the 1-3/4" mesh size, and the larger 4" mesh size.  We supply these netting productions built per-order to whatever dimensions you need for the job, and they are readily available to view, price, and order right through Gourock's Online Netting Calculator:

Gourock also has the ability to incorporate very customized features into the netting productions as well, aside from the sizing availability.  For instance, many times for commercial installations there are considerations for entrance or door areas, and also for particular edging or bordering characteristics that would benefit the installation approach.  Here is a helpful example from one of our professional commercial training facility customers, Shoot360.  Shoot360 is a high-end basketball training business that offers a very modern basketball training program.  The nylon barrier and divider nets that we build and ship for Shoot360 locations feature:
  • professional-grade #36 X 1-3/4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting
  • square mesh pattern nets, black in coloring
  • webbing and grommet edges, along with selective edges incorporating 5/16" braided polyester rope borders
  • specifically sized netting panels to line-up with the necessary training and court areas within the overall gymnasium
  • specifically located door/entrance areas in order to pass-through the divider nets from one training area to another
Most barrier nets and divider nets are installed using a cable-suspension method of hanging the netting.  This generally entails installing a series of tensioned wires/cables between walls or supports, and then clipping the netting to the cables using carabiner-style snap-hooks.  You can essentially view this technique as an "industrial curtain" approach.

As you can see from the example photos below, the Shoot360 nets also use the cable-suspension approach of netting installation.  From the example photos, you can also see what the sizing needs are, the incorporated door/entrance features, and also where the different types of border edges were sewn-in and located.  Should you have some specific features or details that you're interested in, feel free to contact Gourock.com and we can take a look at what you are aiming for, and submit a quote for the production and netting that we can prepare and supply for you.

Custom Nylon Netting Shapes for Smaller Areas

Gourock.com supplies hundreds of custom built netting panels for a very wide spectrum of applications and needs.  Many times the netting that is required for a particular project needs to incorporate very specific sizing and shape characteristics in order to best accomplish its purpose.  Often the customized sizes and shapes are needed for larger installations such as sports stadiums, gymnasiums, warehouses, and outdoor facilities.  Lots of times these sorts of netting productions are pretty large in size, and are meant to have lots of coverage area - for instance, spanning entire specter bleacher areas or spans between buildings.  We have many examples of large custom netting productions noted throughout the Gourock.com site and on this company blog as well.

However, the custom netting available from Gourock is also very functional for smaller spaces and limited coverage areas.  Since we have a wide variety of netting twine thicknesses and mesh sizes available, as well as many options for customizing sizing and shape features, there are opportunities for netting solutions for very unique situations.  For instance, there are industrial warehouse applications that require small nets to barricade or block railing spaces, loft areas, and gaps in racking and shelving.  In other industrial applications there may be small specific gaps within rafters or between equipment storage spaces that need to be spanned with netting to block people, birds, debris, or animals from passing through.  The same sorts of situations also pop-up with private residential applications as well - and they also are typical for a lot of scholastic or municipal installations too.

Gourock.com specializes in custom netting supply, and you have the opportunity to have netting made per-order according to some pretty specific shape details as well.  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.

Most of the highly custom nets that are supplied by Gourock.com are built using the highest-quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  Available in a wide selection of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses, and 100% Made in the USA, custom netting products from Gourock are produced per-order according to the sizing that you need for your particular project.  Whether it's a very large-scale netting production that is meant to surround entire driving ranges or commercial locations, or for smaller-sized nets that have a highly unique purpose and installation space, Gourock.com has a netting solution for you.

Take a look through this blog and also in the Gourock.com site as well to get some context on different custom netting jobs that have been shipped over the years - you very well may locate a few examples that are very similar to what you are aiming for for your project.  Here are four examples of custom netting productions supplied by Gourock.com that are each quite unique, but also incorporate the following particular characteristics:
  • each are smaller in total size area, since they are built to block/protect an important small 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

University of Wisconsin Netting Installation

The University of Wisconsin Recreational Sports Dept. is one of our very appreciated customers that has just recently wrapped-up a new netting installation within one of their training facilities.  The issue to be examined and remedied was a typical situation that many organizations face, which is to protect lighting and ceiling components from various objects that may impact them.  In this case, the UW needed to add a layer of protection across the entire span of one of their gymnasiums.

The solution for their needs was a series of netting panels built from the #21 X 1-3/4" DuPont® Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting that were each constructed in a square mesh pattern, and bordered with 5/16" Dacron® Rope Borders.  The first part of the job required a couple of 13'-7" X 88' netting panels, and then shortly followed by 8 more netting panels that featured dimensions that were all around 24' X 44'.  The second round of netting also included some interior rope riblines that were fairly specifically located in order to exactly match the steel wires/cables that were already in-place at the gym (which were the connection/installation points for the netting panels).  You can view the details for the building sizes/locations for the second round of netting by viewing the images below.

For indoor barrier applications like this one, the #21 X 1-3/4" square mesh knotted nylon netting is an optimal selection because:
  • #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon is extremely strong, but also a lightweight material
  •  allows for a highly dependable usage/durability without adding stress on the installation supports
  • allows for light to pass-through to keep the area functionally illuminated
  • square mesh pattern is extremely user-friendly due to the 90ยบ mesh configuration
  • 1-3/4" mesh size blocks objects of a 2"+ diameter, making is it very versatile for many sports/athletic applications
These nets went from the quoting and designing process, to being produced/shipped and installed by UW within 3 weeks.  Take a look at the great photos of the job that were sent our way this week, and if you have some inquiries of your own for similar sorts of netting supply you can always contact Gourock.com with your questions.
