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 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!

Video Guideline: Diamond Mesh vs. Square Mesh Netting, and Rope Bordering on Nets



Gourock.com supplies custom netting in both diamond mesh and square mesh patterns.  This video provides general context on these two different mesh options, as well as the effects of weaving rope bordering around the perimeter edges of bulk netting sections.

When ordering bulk (unbordered) netting sections, it is recommended to use square mesh pattern.  This video demonstrates why square mesh is much more functional to work with in the case of bulk netting supply.  
Also demonstrated is how a rope bordering around the perimeter of diamond mesh pattern netting will hold the meshes proportionally and to correct size/area.  With a rope bordering on the edges, either diamond mesh or square mesh pattern is great.  Rope bordering also adds more material around the edges of the netting, increasing overall strength and durability around the perimeter.
You can have a rope bordering installed and sewn-in by Gourock.com when you order (laced through, and then sewn into place), or alternatively you can use your own length of rope/cord and weave it around the edges of bulk netting on your own.

Gourock.com has many different custom netting options available, and you are able to use the online netting calculators to source any dimensions/sizes that you require for your project.  The examples shown in this comparison video aim to help you determine which netting construction options you should consider selecting, and what to expect from them.

Hardware & Accessories for Netting Installation to Tensioned Cables

Gourock.com offers a good selection of cabling hardware and associated products used for hanging and installing netting from a tensioned cable.  Spanning a steel cable between rigid posts/structures, tightening the cable so it is level, and then clipping the edging of the netting panels to that cable is a very classic and functional approach to barrier netting installations.  It's also a popular method for batting cage netting installations, and for nets that are dividing courts, protecting ceilings, or when the netting needs to slide back-and-forth on the wire (curtain-style).
There is some general context and guidance on this method available on this page of the Gourock website, as well as throughout this company blog, and on this available video.

As you are doing your research into netting installation, we offer these individual video spotlights for each particular component of a tensioned cable installation, and each of these products are available to source right here at Gourock.com

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:

Batting Cage Net Installation, Backyard/Residential with Cable-Suspension

Batting cage nets from Gourock.com are installed and hung in a wide variety of methods, with a very popular approach being a technique known as a "cable suspension".  The cable suspension design is very efficient for both indoor installations, as well as outdoor setups.  The general context is that a series of cables or wires are tensioned between some supporting structures, and then the batting cage net is clipped/suspended underneath the wires.
For indoor installations the cables are generally attached and tensioned between walls, or from eyebolts that are installed into ceiling rafters.  And for outdoor installations the cables are most typically tensioned between some poles or posts that have been set into ground.  The general recommendations for either type of installation is to locate the cables so that they line-up with the dimensions of the batting cage net that is being suspended.  This means that there is usually 3 cables for an average sized net:  one for each side, and one running down the center.
For additional context on this, reference the following article that is also on this blog:
http://netting-gourock.blogspot.com/2009/11/batting-cage-cable-suspension.html

A recent Gourock batting cage customer documented his installation, and sent us this great photo portfolio of the construction process and materials that he opted to use.  This is a residential batting cage installation that utilizes the cable suspension technique, and features a custom footprint/bed for the batting area and a unique clamping mechanism to secure the wires to the square steel support poles.
The netting is a #42 HDPE Batting Cage Net, 12' high X 14' wide X 55' long.  This net has a physical weight of 100 lbs.
As you can see from the end results of this project, he also added a lighting system for nighttime practice.
This is a really great setup, and a fantastic construction design - thanks again Mike!

Solar Panel Protective Barrier Netting Installation

There are all kinds of protective barrier solutions that can be achieved by installing netting panels, and the below example is a great example of some of the unique and interesting applications that we at Gourock help facilitate every week.  The following thread provides insights into this recent client's problem/issue that needed to be addressed, the proposed approach, the netting solution, and then the end-result.  Photos and descriptions were emailed over to our office from this appreciated customer - and this all took place within the last 3 weeks.  I think that you'll find this account to provide great context into some of the noteworthy solutions accomplished with nylon netting.


1:  The Problem

"This system is installed at a Golf course in NJ. The missing spaces are where golf balls have broken the PV Panels. This building is located down the fairway from the 9th Tee and is wreaking havoc on my panels. Most of the balls drop from a high angle and I believe that placing a horizontal net over the entire roof area will be my only form of real protection."


2:  The Proposed Netting Solution
  • #12 X 1" DuPont® Type 66-728 Tarred Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, with 5/16" Braided Dacron® Rope Bordering (sewn-in)
  • Required dimensions:  25' X 55' for the protective area
    Why this selection?
  1. 1" mesh size is the preferred configuration for golf ball barrier applications
  2. The #12 twine thickness (1.7mm) is lightweight yet very strong (116 lb./twine) so will minimize the physical weight of the overall netting panel, and allows for the maximum amount of sunlight to pass through the mesh to the panels below
  3. The 1" mesh features an additional tar-coating that significantly enhances UV resistance, and also has a 7 year prorated UV warranty included
  4. DuPont® 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon is the highest quality and most dependable netting selection for barrier and protective installations, and can be manufactured to have as little 'sag' as possible
  5. Dacron® rope borders sewn-in provide extraordinary strength to attach the netting panel to the installation structure

3:  The Installation Preparation

"Below is a preliminary picture of the building with the poles pre-mounted. The front poles will get cut down once we find a good height for the netting. Every time we lose a panel from a golf ball it is an instant $600.00 loss plus replacement labor and also production of the system begins to diminish. There are actually 2 smashed panels in this photo. We are up to approx $8,000.00 in damages. This net should do the trick."


4:  The Result and Followup

"We have completed the Install and it worked even better than expected. If you are able to view the video(attached) you can see that the golf balls roll right off the netting and back in to play for the golfers and also protects our investment. I can’t say enough good things about the product and service you offered."

Residential Protective Netting

Nylon netting is an excellent and dependable material for protective and containment solutions for around the home and property.  Typically, people who have a home that is located in a close proximity to a golf course fairway or driving range often have situations involving golf balls flying into their property.  This obviously has a lot of potentially dangerous consequences such as property damage, personal injury, and stress.

Utilizing a typical barrier netting installation is a very common approach for a great many people who are seeking a functional protective barrier around their area.  Most often, the material selected for general multipurpose outdoor containment netting, including golf barrier use, is the 1" tarred DuPont type 66-728 knotted nylon netting.  This material is designed for continual outdoor exposure and longevity.  However, we see all types of unique netting applications and uses - especially popular is utilizing existing structures/supports that already exist at the location as part of the netting installation. 

Since Gourock.com can supply knotted nylon netting according to any dimensions that are required, including most custom shapes/tapers, you can keep a pretty open-mind regarding the protective barrier setup that you may require.  Below you'll see a helpful example of a fairly recent netting panel construction for a customer's home.  The purpose of the netting for this particular invoice/production is to aid in protecting the siding and windows of the home from incoming golf balls from a nearby course course fairway.  They chose to connect the rope bordering of the netting panels directly to the overhead gutters that were already an existing structure on the house.  The gutters provided a 1.5' clearance from the sides of the home, and then the netting panels are spanned to ground level and attached to bottom connectors.  As you can see from the photo of the property, there is a sloping grade that the netting panels were to correspond to - so using the dimensions provided from the location, the custom #12 X 1" tarred nylon netting panels with 5/16" rope bordering were produced and supplied to match the particular area.  The #12 X 1" nylon netting was selected due to its great functionality as golf barrier netting, lightweight presence, longterm outdoor durability, ease-of-use, and minimal visual properties.

Some More Unique Custom Nets

Customized netting productions for all types of unique applications are consistently supplied by Gourock.com for many different types of customers.  Generally constructed with the highest-end sports netting, DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon, there are seemingly endless possibilities for most netting applications.  We have a couple of pages on the Gourock.com website that help demonstrate some interesting examples of custom netting enclosures and netting panels, and over the last couple of weeks there have been some additional jobs that may help you out with your netting research.

Each of these productions utilizes the DuPont® nylon, and each has a different mesh/twine build and end-user purpose.  Should you have some interest in sourcing customized designs or dimensions for unique netting builds, feel free to contact us for a quotation (and submitting a general diagram is always great too).


ABOVE:  This is an interesting netting build that was provided for a customer based on some general requirements that he had.  The usage is as a football throwing target and impact net, incorporating a target portal that has a "sock-net" catch pocket coming off the back side.  The overall area of the netting is large enough to act as a barrier and impact net for all different types of football impacts and training, while the target and pocket zone allows for specific aiming and the benefit of being able to collect the footballs in the "sock" netting for efficiency.  This was constructed from #15 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting, strong enough for football impact use - and also with a smaller mesh size because they were also going to use smaller golf-training wiffleballs for some other seasonal training.  A top rope (Dacron®) with tie-off tails makes it easy to hang up.  Basically, a multi-sport practice net with a customer-specific design!

ABOVE:  This pair of customized netting panels were requested with a variety of custom characteristics for a nice sports facility in Randolph, NJ.  Over the last several years they have had a lot of great use from Gourock netting products, and this specialty netting job was for a barrier net requirement spanning over a couple of small entrance-doors.  Also, it was built in a custom white coloring as well, from a specialty netting bale construction of #21 X 1-1/2" mesh DuPont® knotted nylon netting.  Generally, all netting options are provided black in color.  There is an article in the blog detailing the benefits of black colored netting, should you be seeking some background on net coloring.  However, customized netting to a very wide variety of colors is possible to produce from scratch, as long a a minimum physical weight requirement is met (generally around 300+ lbs.).  Because a specific bale of nylon netting needs to be created for a customized color, or customized mesh/twine combination, panels or projects featuring these sorts of arrangements have a minimum threshold of production overhead.  But often it works out really well, as with these two netting panels shown above.  Not only do they feature the unique materials, but were also produced to take into account their specifically noted entrance doors as well.

ABOVE:  Indoor sports facilities and domes are a very popular destination for barrier and impact netting panels that are supplied through Gourock.com on a regular basis.  And since every facility has a different shape, design, and sizing requirement - the need for specifically constructed netting panels is to be expected.  For the four netting panels that are featured above, they were sent off to NY for installation within a sports dome.  The tapered netting panels are actually the end-panels to the facility, while the rectangular netting panels with the riblines are the side nets.  The way that they were installed together is with 11' vertical side walls, and a tapering 35' sloped containment wall that leads up to the ceiling.  So basically, the 11' and 35' edges of the different netting panels line-up together like puzzle pieces to create a 3-dimensional enclosure. The 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering and riblines were clipped to steel cabling that was tensioned with turnbuckles.  5/16" snap-hooks were clipped every 5' or so, in order to achieve a nice and even installation.  These nets were also provided in a custom white coloring, from the #21 X 1-3/4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon.  All hardware for the installation was also provided through Gourock as well.

PolyPro Netting Panels - Serged Edges

Most of the netting options that Gourock.com supplies are customized panels that are manufactured to specific dimensions, shapes, or specs.  These types of nets are generally built with the DuPont® nylon netting options, or the standard knotless nylon netting construction.  However, there is another option available that functions very, very well for almost any general netting barrier application - especially those those don't require customization of dimensions/design.  For instance, if you are seeking a barrier or impact netting solution that may be considered more "basic" or "general" - the 100% High-Tenacity PolyPro Nets may be exactly what you are looking for.

High-Tenacity PolyPro (HTPP) nets are prefabricated to a variety of relatively common dimensions and mesh sizes.  So for small object barrier (like golf balls, etc.), or larger objects (like baseballs, basketballs, etc.), there is an option for you to aim for.  HTPP nets feature braided/knotless square mesh design, with a 4mm serged-edging around the perimeter of the panel.  "Serging" is a process in textile production that basically fuses a thicker amount of material to the main area.  So in the case of the PolyPro netting panels, there is an edging fused to the outer perimeter to finish-off the mesh, and to aid in the hanging and installation of the netting panel.  You can consider the serged-edge to be an "in-between" option compared to getting bulk netting or a rope-bordered netting panel.

Another notable feature of the HTPP netting, is how it has the aesthetics of nylon and the UV/extrusion characteristics of HDPE (polyethylene).  Nylon is a fibrous material, making it feel and look "cloth-like" in nature; whereas HDPE is a very stiff high-density plastic-type of twine.  And while Nylon's production requires it to be dyed into it's coloring and UV stabilized after looming (in typical cases), HDPE twine is extruded permanently black and with the stabilizers right from the start.  So where does that place the PolyPro?  Well, the HTPP nets are an option that look and feel just like nylon, but are extruded from the start with permanent coloring and 4 units of UV stabilization!  And with lots of convenient dimensions and options to select from, these netting panel options may be exactly what you are seeking for your general netting requirements.

Take a look at the images below that demonstrate the #36 X 1-3/4" PolyPro netting as installed on a tensioned-cable with aluminum snap-hooks.  You can see how the serged-edge functions very well as an attachment point, how the netting looks fantastic, and how it can be slid all the way over to one end when needed (condensing down very easily, just like nylon).  The HTPP nets also install very well with the Home Barrier Poles.

Residential Golf Barrier Netting

If your property is located on a golf course fairway, by a driving range, or if you have any reason to require a barrier net to block golf balls from entering your yard - going for a golf barrier netting installation will save you lots of money in property damage and potential injuries.  The 1" mesh size DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting with tar coating is your best choice for long-term durability and dependability.  The #12 twine comes with a 7 year UV warranty, while the thicker #18 twine has a 10 year UV warranty.  The 1" mesh size is optimal for barrier netting applications because it performs very well with wind, blocks errant balls/shots, and has a minimal visual consideration.


Some people ask about sourcing a white, clear, or green netting color - with the intentions of going for a netting installation that is "invisible".  However, something to keep in mind is that the black color is actually the least visually obtrusive color to use for barrier netting installations, as it 'blends' in very well with the surrounding background and doesn't "stand out" at all (unlike a white coloring, which will be quite visible).  And also, black is the most dependable material with regards to UV exposure.

Check out these great photos sent over to us from a customer who had us supply some custom golf barrier nets that feature a tapered-shape.  As you can see, the golf netting looks fantastic and the installation is really nice.  Most barrier installations use a series of poles and tensioned cables, which you can detail here - and you can also check out the hardware materials here.
