Custom Nylon Netting and Nets for Unique Spaces

There are many different types of custom netting solutions available from Gourock.com, including netting panels that are fabricated to very specialized shapes and sizes in order to properly function within unique spaces and areas.  For instance, some nets are built to particular sizes in order to fit a shelving system, warehouse racking, or industrial carts.  In other cases some custom nets are needed to fill-in gaps above sports stadium spectator areas, or various areas within indoor sports training facilities.  The possibilities are fairly limitless, as there are many different applications in which a custom-shaped and sized net will be the best solution for containment, barrier, or protective/safety reasons.

Gourock.com easily allows you to order custom sized nets built to your own particular dimensions right through our Online Netting Calculator.  This is a very useful sourcing tool for square or rectangular netting panels, built from a wide selection of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses.  However in addition to netting productions that are in the typical square/rectangular shapes, we also supply nets that are built to angled and tapered designs, and also incorporate more specialized add-on features that are needed for the installation (such as tails, riblines, or notches).  Netting productions like these are very customized, allowing you to get the best possible fit and function for the project.

Generally-speaking, custom netting productions that incorporate a series of more unique design features are constructed from the DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  This netting is a very high-quality product that is Made in the USA, and is available in a wide variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses.  Gourock.com custom nets are prepared per-order, and hand-built in Washington with high skilled craftsmanship.  We produce nylon nets for athletic, industrial, commercial, infrastructure, municipal, agricultural, residential, and scholastic applications.  As you are working on the design aspects of your project you can Contact Gourock and send over a drawing or set of dimensions for us to take a look at.  In most cases there are great opportunities to have specialized netting products built for your particular needs.

Throughout this blog there are many examples of custom nylon nets that have been fabricated by Gourock over the years.  Below are some further details on recent productions that were requested, designed, and supplied by Gourock.com so that you can get a bit more context on the netting options that are available for your consideration:

Nylon Netting Used For ATV Dog Containment - customer photos

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom netting materials, prepared per-order according to your own specified sizing and finishing preferences.  A great characteristic of the custom nylon and polyester netting options available through the Gourock site is the multipurpose flexibility they offer for a very wide variety of unique and personalized applications.  There are quite a few selections available to consider, with a variety of different mesh sizes and twine thicknesses - all of which are readily ordered to your own custom dimensions directly through the Gourock.com site:
http://www.gourock.com/netting_types.html

One of the netting options that we have available that is very popular for multipurpose and more uniquely specialized projects is the 210D/80 X 1" knotless nylon netting.  This is a netting construction that features:

  • braided-knotless mesh construction
  • 1" square mesh size
  • twine thickness of #26 (209 lb./tensile rating)
  • UV stabilization and urethane bonding
  • a variety of coloring options: black, white, blue, tan, grey, yellow, orange, magenta/red
  • available to order according to any dimensions you prefer
It's a very user-friendly netting to work with, and can be prepared for you with a rope bordering sewn-in around the edges, or with a 1-1/2" webbing/grommeted border, or as sections of bulk mesh.  The 1" mesh size is very applicable for a wide-range of uses (it's a very multipurpose mesh size), and the different coloring options make it attractive for different aesthetic characteristics that may be preferred for the overall project.  It features a moderately thick twine size that has a very high abrasion resistance along with high tensile strength rating, making it a very dependable and durable netting selection without being overly thick/heavy while at the same time not being a lightweight material either.  In addition to those intrinsic attributes, the braided-knotless nylon netting is a "fabric-like" material - so many people find it a very adaptable mesh that can mold/wrap/adjust around odd-shaped spaces and/or structures.

Gourock.com often supplies custom netting for pet and animal barrier uses, especially for dogs.  Many times the dog barrier netting is blocking off a loft area, doorways, railings, or decks/patios.  Gourock also supplies netting that is applied to various different types of transportation vehicles for different uses, including for boats, trucks, trailers, and passenger cars.  
A recent Gourock netting customer had a need for barrier netting that was to be used for both of these uses - he had a side-by-side ATV that he often operated with his Golden Retriever riding in back, and needed to dependably contain his dog within the ATV while driving.  The 1" knotless nylon netting was a great selection for his use, since the preference was for a strong pliable netting material with a mesh size that was small enough to avoid paws going "though" the netting, as well as having a bright color for both visibility and also aesthetic.

He opted for a bulk mesh section of orange-colored 210D/80 X 1" knotless nylon netting, so that he could use that material to layer around his ATV where needed, and then cut/trim to shape on his own while working with it.  In this case it was a 4'-6" X 22' section of netting, in order to have enough material to work with, along with having some excess mesh to hold on the side for future uses or additions if needed.  Also ordered was a 100' length of the black braided-polyester rope that we supply, which is the same rope that is used on netting productions that have the rope already sewn-in around the perimeter of the mesh.  This bulk length of rope was used by him to weave/lace through the edges of his personally cut/trimmed netting in order to reinforce the edges and provide a nice strong/durable material to attach the netting to the framing of the ATV.  He used bungee cord materials (like the Bungee Balls available from Gourock) to actually connect the netting to his side-by-side, which are convenient because they add a bit of tension/tightness to the overall installation of the netting, and are efficiently removed if needed for instances where the netting may need to come off of the vehicle for storage or in periods of non-use.

Here are some photos that were provided to use from our customer, and they are quite helpful to get a good look at how the nylon netting available from Gourock.com can be used for very unique and personalized projects that not only function with the highest expectation of durability, but also look really good too!

Thank you again Tom - great job, and we appreciate it very much!

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.

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.

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 Gourock.com

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.  Gourock.com 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.  Gourock.com 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 Gourock.com 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 Gourock.com

Example 1
netting details:  #36 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon, square mesh pattern
custom features: specific dimensions, overlapping door/entrance areas, webbing/grommeting bordering where specified, polyester rope bordered where specified

netting details:  #72 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon, diamond mesh pattern
custom features: tapered/angled shape, polyester rope bordering, specific sizing necessities

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.

Nylon Netting Featuring Custom Cut-Outs and Notches

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of high-quality netting and netting products, including customized fabrication options.  Custom netting productions can include a variety of unique features including special dimensions, tapers and angles, and notches or cut-outs in the finished shape.

Nets that are to be made to customized shapes are generally used for specific areas of coverage.  For instance, on a lot of warehouse locations there are beams/rafters/voids that need to be covered with barrier/containment netting for some reason or another, but in order to be effective the netting has to be constructed with a taper, angle, or notch to fit the unique space.  In other examples there are existing poles or frames that are already in-place and require netting to have a special shape in order to be effective.  We also see many residential customers that need their barrier netting to fill-in a specific region of their homes or properties - such as spaces above lofts, ceilings, railings, or rooflines.

Gourock.com has the ability to examine, quote, and supply custom netting that is prepared per-order to match your specific sizing needs.  Netting is used for a high range of athletic, safety, multipurpose, and aesthetic applications - along with industrial, agricultural, and professional uses as well.  Whether you are representing a large corporation, a municipal or scholastic organization, or are a private individual - feel free to drop over a line our way through Gourock.com and let us know what you are aiming for.  Chances are very good that we'll have some fabrication and material options available to you for a custom netting production that will be an excellent solution for your project.

Here are three recent examples of some custom nylon netting orders that each feature a notch or cut-out within the final net design, and we hope that these help provide you with a bit more context on what is available to you from Gourock.com:

EXAMPLE 1 
Netting: #15 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting + 5/16" rope bordering 
Custom Features: Notches and specialized shape

Additional Basketball-Shot Nets

A couple of months ago we had posted an article about some custom nylon nets that were shipped out for a basketball-shot application, and you can reference that earlier post here.  The product and material has worked out very well for this customer, and we have facilitated the netting design and production/shipment of a new batch of these nets within the last week.  The particular purpose for the custom netting is to serve as a side-barrier for a basketball-shot setup that they install off of the side of their promotional van during different events and assemblies.  In this latest run of product, the nylon netting was created to match-up with a specific set of tapers and dimensions in order to functionally fit within their installation framing.

The most typically selected netting option for general-use sporting applications, including basketball barrier, is the #21 X 1-3/4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, and usually it is bordered around the edge meshes with a 5/16" braided Dacron® rope sewn-in.  These are the materials that have been used for all of these basketball-shot nets in the past, as well with the latest run of product as well.  Our customer also has 2" steel rings sewn-in on the upper corners of each netting panel, which are used to hook/connect the netting to their installation framing.

At Gourock.com we supply a huge variety of custom netting solutions for a really wide spectrum of uses and sizes.  Basically, every single day is something new and unique!  If you have a situation that requires some specific netting sizes and/or shapes - certainly contact us and forward over your details and we can take a look at it for you.  There are netting and material solutions available from Gourock for nearly all inquiries - and it would be great to hear from you!

Custom "Pillowcase-Style" Sock Nets

We recently facilitated the production and supply of some custom "pillowcase-style" sock screen nets for a university baseball program in Indiana.  There were 3 custom nets that were required to be built to fit over their steel framing, and each were to have a central portal with 'sock/catch' netting sewn-in to collect baseballs within.  Sock-screens are nets that are generally used for batting practice and swing-training off of tees, and also for close range impacts and collection of soft-toss balls.  Generally installed over square-shaped frames, the "pillowcase-style" design enables the netting to slide over the top of the frame, encapsulating it within 2 walls of netting.  Basically, the netting is seamed on the sides and the top edge but not on the bottom side (hence, the "pillowcase" description).

These 3 custom nets were constructed to the sizing of 78" X 78" and feature the #36 X 1-3/4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  The central portal area to hit into had a measurement of 47" X 39", which is a fairly typical dimension for products like these.  The sock/catch netting was sewn-in allowing for approximately 30" of mesh coming out the back of the screen.  All edges and sewing was reinforced with the 5/16" braided Dacron® rope bordering.

Netting for a Custom Framing

This week we had an inquiry into providing some custom-shaped nylon netting that needed to be secured within a customized framing structure that had been built.  Our customer had initially emailed over some photographs of the unique frame that they had developed for a golf impact application - and then had followed up with some details on measurements and installation methods.  After suggesting a few different netting solutions and providing a series of quotes and drawings, we were able to collaborate on the dimensions and netting features that would best suit their application.

Golf impact netting is the 3/4" mesh knotted nylon, and there are two twine thicknesses available from Gourock.com to select from.  The lighter weight #15 twine is great for general golf ball containment for closely hit shots/drives.  The thicker #21 twine is the optimal choice for high-abrasion applications and as primary impact netting for golf shots.  So for the following netting production and usage, our customer opted to surround the majority of the containment area with the #15 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting, and then reinforce the central area of the custom framing with a secondary layer of high-strength #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting.  All three netting panels were produced in the diamond mesh pattern with the 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering installed (sewn-in) around the perimeter.  For connections to their framing they opted to go with the bungee-ball attachment straps that we have available.

Some unique aspects of this particular job were:
  • custom tapered shape to fit as closely as possible to the 3-dimensional top shelf of the framing
  • rope riblines installed through the netting panels to act as attachment/connection points
  • leadline bottom (weighted line) on the primary impact panel net
The best way to get started on attaining some quotes for netting solutions for custom applications is to use our contact page and forward over your dimensions, intended usage, and details/preferences for what you are seeking to accomplish.

Another Custom Tapered Golf Cage Net

Earlier this month there was a post that provided some background information about a couple of uniquely tapered/customized golf cage nets (click here to view that post).  Last week there was another very similar production that was provided for a new Gourock customer, and the installation and context for this most recent tapered net nearly identical to the previous productions from a couple of weeks ago.  The earlier blog post helped this customer gain some great insights into the availability of custom netting options that are provided through Gourock, as well as which materials would be the most preferred for the application.  Submitting a general drawing/sketch through our contact page is an effective way for us to get working on some pricing and supply options for custom nets like these:

Custom Basketball-Shot Netting

A few weeks ago we had a request for some customized nets to be utilized within a unique marketing application that involved a basketball shooting game.  There were a couple of different sizes and shapes that needed to be facilitated, put into production, and shipped to our customer's event locations.  These nets had some very specific dimensions, tapers, and shapes in order to fit within their necessary area and to function well to catch-and-return the shot basketballs.
Gourock.com specializes in providing custom netting solutions for a very wide variety of applications - so these nets were certainly available to quote and provide for this particular end-user.  The materials used for the job were the #21 X 1-3/4" DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, edged with sewn-in 5/16" Dacron® Rope Borders, and then reinforced at several connection points with 2" steel rings.
The #21 X 1-3/4" nylon netting is typically the most popular choice for basketball netting applications due to its exceptional combination of tensile strength, twine thickness, weight, and overall value.
Feel free to take a look through the drawings that were drafted-up for production on these custom nets to view the details and specifics that were required for these custom nets - as well as the general product rendering that was provided by our customer for context.
