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:

Custom Netting Panels, Specialized Shapes for Larger Areas

Gourock.com 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.  Gourock.com 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 Gourock.com 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.

EXAMPLE 1:
netting type and construction:  #18 X 1" knotted nylon, diamond mesh pattern, 5/16" braided polyester rope bordered

Pallet Rack Guard Netting, Customized Nets

Pallet rack guard netting is available from Gourock.com 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 Gourock.com 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.

Industrial Bird Barrier Netting, Bird Exclusion and Control Nets

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of all types of customized nylon and polyester nets, that are used for a very wide variety of end-user purposes.  Aside from a lot of the athletic and general containment applications that are pretty well-associated with netting installations, there are many industrial and commercial netting applications that are very popular and necessary as well.  One of them is barrier netting for bird exclusion and aviary needs.

Bird barrier and bird exclusion netting is often required at many industrial and commercial locations such as production plants, warehouses, retention ponds, transportation depots, and storage facilities.  Depending on the amount of "blocking" coverage a particular project needs there are a variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses that are most applicable for bird netting installations.  For example, large retention ponds that surround airports, mining and oil operations, and heavy-industrial properties usually need a netting to act as a deterrent against larger wild birds that need to stay away from the pond contents.  So what we generally see being sourced in those instances is the 1-3/4" square mesh or 4" square mesh twisted-knotted nylon netting.
However, there are a lot of warehouse and facility installations that want to deter large birds as well as small birds, so in those cases we typically see the 1" knotted nylon netting being most preferred.
We do provide a great selection of bird barrier netting options on the Gourock site right here, and our bird netting options can be priced and ordered according to most any particular dimensions/sizes that you need.  Custom netting is our speciality!

And then, there are netting projects that not only take into account the mesh/twine considerations and the customized sizing, but also have very particular needs for the material to be fabricated to specific shapes.  For instance, here is an example from last month in which all of these factors came into play:

Client:  commercial recycling and refuse facility

Bird Netting Application:  several pavilion-style storage buildings (see image below), and wanting to deter both large and small wild birds

Netting Selection:  #18 X 1" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon, diamond mesh, tar-coated, with 5/16" polyester rope bordering.  This material was selected due to it's mesh size, as well as this particular netting being extremely resilient to the elements in harsher outdoor conditions (this facility is located in Maine), and being the higher tensile strength 1" option which for maximum overall durability.

Fabrication Considerations:  very customized shape (see image below) designed to follow the contour of the pavilion roof as closely as possible.  Also, this customer wanted to allow themselves the opportunity for vehicles and personnel to pass-through the netting like a curtain - so each end of each building used two of these nets that would meet in the middle.  One net on the left, and one net on the right (mirror image).  There were 12 of these nets produced and shipped for this first phase of the job.  31' tall X 26' wide with the angled/contoured shape shown.

Indoor Netting Installations

It's getting to the time of the year where we at Gourock.com assist a lot of customers with customized nets that are needed for indoor installations.  There are many instances where the locations that are required to to covered by protective or impact netting include some building features that are "in the way".  For example we see people needing to account for beams, rafters, doors, drop-ceilings, roofline tapers, and other integrated and permanent characteristics of the indoor space.  Luckily, by using Gourock for your netting production and supply you do have some good opportunities to take these sorts of room/building constraints into account when having your protective netting manufactured.

Over the years Gourock has supplied hundreds of customers with sports and multipurpose netting productions that are being hung or installed within indoor spaces.  This is a pretty popular way to go throughout the entire year, but definitely more typical throughout the late autumn and winter seasons.  Whether it is for a private/residential use, a high-traffic commercial installation, or an industrial location, we can generally quote and supply customized netting panels that take into-account your indoor shape features.

Below are four recent examples of custom nylon nets that were constructed with particular shapes to make them easy to hang/install around different obstructions (vents, rafters, etc.) and also entrance doors that lead into the indoor area.

Feel free to get in-touch with Gourock.com if you would like to inquire about your own indoor netting needs and we can help out!

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!

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:

Nylon Nets Featuring Tapered Edges

Gourock.com supplies a really wide range of nylon netting options, and many different unique netting productions have been highlighted throughout this blog over the last few years.  Some of the customized features that are often required for the final product fabrication are specific shapes and/or tapers.  Many times these sorts of tapers are meant to closely follow the sloping roof-line of a building, or to line up with a particular set of angles that are created by the cables/wires that the netting will be clipped to.  Of course, there are also many other types of unique situations that call for specialized angles/tapers to be considered for a customer's netting production - and from Gourock you have the opportunity to get as close as possible to a precisely manufactured nylon netting solution.

The DuPont® twisted-knotted nylon netting is a very high-end and durable product choice for most all netting productions, and is the material that is utilized for the the customized tapered nets that we supply our customers with.  Due to the nature of the production requirements for tapered shapes, a diamond mesh pattern and a rope bordering installation (Dacron® rope) are the 2 requirements for proper fabrication.  There are a wide variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses available for your consideration, which you can take a look at here on the Gourock site.  And if you want to forward over a diagram (with dimensions) of your specially-shaped netting needs, certainly feel free to do so using the upload options on our contact page.  The following selected examples of tapered netting productions were all facilitated by Gourock beginning with correspondence and uploaded requests through the contact form, and we'd like to share with you some of the recent productions that have been shipped out in the past few weeks.  This particular highlight of completed orders includes nets for professional baseball fields, parks & rec departments, indoor sports facilities, and municipal sports associations:
