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 for Commercial Sports Training Facilities

Throughout the years, Gourock.com has supplied many commercial sports training facilities and businesses with their barrier and protective nets.  Ranging from new upstart regional businesses, to large established sports training firms, Gourock has the capability to quote, manufacture, and ship custom nets for each unique installation.  There are quite a few examples of different sports facility nets that we have supplied over the years throughout this company blog and on the Gourock.com site - but here is another interesting example from the last month that may help you during your research into protective sports netting and the custom netting options that are available to you.

Netting that is being installed at locations that are expected to be subjected to an increased amount of abrasion have a few characteristics to consider.  Specifically - thicker netting twines are recommended for commercial establishments since those sorts of locations have an expectation that there will be lots of continuous users, resulting in a pretty consistent amount traffic and impact on the netting.  As opposed to a lot of the netting that is used for general barrier and protective purposes, the nets that are installed at high-traffic training facilities for the same purposes are continuously subjected to various high-intensity impacts and wear-and-tear due to the amount of people and drills occurring within the facility every day.  So for instance, a general protective barrier net that is surrounding a field or a set of bleachers is expected to be impacted intermittently, and those nets are there to contain balls and protect property and spectators.  In contrast, the barrier nets at a sports facility will function for those same purposes - but also are utilized for other close-range and high-impact uses as well.  For instance, soft-toss training for baseball and softball players.  Or also for golf driving and hitting practice or drills (if the facility specializes in golf).  Basically, since commercially-oriented training establishments generally want to be able to get the most overall use from their netting, the thicker netting twines really aid in dependably providing a double-duty job (general containment/safety, as well as close-range impact uses).

Here is a recent example of a series of custom nets that were manufactured and shipped out to a training facility in Ohio that concentrates on high school athletes performing a wide variety of sports including baseball, softball, football, soccer, lacrosse, and golf.  So there were certain areas of their facility that they preferred the heavy-duty golf impact netting to take-care of all of the expected sports (since golf netting will also block/contain all of the larger objects as well), whereas there were some areas that were only to be geared towards the larger impact objects (basically everything larger than a golf ball).  And since this sort of netting installation calls for the thicker materials for the higher abrasion that comes with high traffic usage, the recommended materials for this project were the #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting, and the #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  These are both DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting constructions, black in coloring, and built diamond mesh pattern with 5/16" Dacron® (polyester) rope borders sewn-in around the perimeter.

In addition to the considerations of high abrasion/traffic and the multipurpose usage of the netting, there were also customized features integrated into the actual finished netting panels themselves.  For instance, as you can see from the fabrication drawings below, there are several notes and identifiers that make these netting productions unique to this particular location specifically:

  • custom dimensions for all of the different finished netting panels
  • polyester rope riblines installed within the area of the netting to line-up with the angles and connection points of the building's walls and ceiling taper locations
  • weighted rope bottom edges (leadline bottom ropes)
  • overlapping netting entrance door areas built to line-up with existing doors at the facility
In all, this production resulted in 13 custom nylon netting panels that are all being installed in specific locations of this sports training facility to make the area functional not just for the intended sports, but also for the nets to match well within the space and building itself.  

As you are doing your research into containment, protective, barrier, and impact netting for your own sports training facility - feel free to contact Gourock.com with your requests or goals and we can take a look and get a netting quote together for you!

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:

Custom Netting Enclosures for Indoor Training Facilities

The winter season is always a very busy time of year for Gourock, since there are so many indoor netting installations that require materials and custom productions that head out the door.  One of the great features of the nylon netting products that we have available is the customization of sizing and dimensions that can be provided.  A lot of indoor installations have very unique sizing requirements due to the shape or overall space constraints of the building, room, or training area.  This is a common consideration for both commercial clients as well as for private residential users, and fortunately by using Gourock.com as a netting source you can most effectively plan around the custom needs of the overall installation.

Over the years we have developed many great relationships with lots of commercial training facilities and businesses - and it's always interesting to see some of the new netting designs that are being setup at various locations.  Indoor sports facilities often have accommodations for multiple sports, so may need a variety of different mesh sizes or twine thicknesses depending on the usage.  Some examples are indoor baseball and softball hitting and pitching/fielding locations, indoor soccer and futsal establishments, indoor volleyball and basketball courts, as well as hockey and lacrosse locations.

In most instances a variety of individual netting panels do a great job to effectively block and contain different objects.  Netting panels can be hung or suspended within the building where they are particularly needed to divide and separate different training zones, or to act as a general barrier for the overall space.  But another very effective approach is to go with a larger enclosure netting design that incorporates the sides, ends, and ceiling netting all sewn-together into a seamless 3-dimensional product.  This is a very popular approach for batting cage nets and golf cage nets, and is also a great method for fully-enclosing an entire indoor space as well.  Often times the overall larger enclosure netting is also supplemented with a variety of separate divider panel nets as well, which allows for different areas of the enclosure to be blocked/separated into several smaller training areas as well.

With Gourock you can take any, or all of these different approaches for an indoor facility.  Featuring very strong and high-end DuPont® type 66-728 knotted nylon netting, 100% USA materials and construction, and expert craftsmanship - you're free to highly customize your netting installation and also have full confidence in the product performance and quality. 
Here are 3 examples from the last 4 weeks of some unique netting enclosure designs that have been produced and shipped out to some indoor training facilities, and feel free to keep in touch if you have something in mind that you may need to have supplied:

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!

EXAMPLE 1
Netting: #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting

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:

Some Recent 3-Dimensional Netting Productions

Nylon netting materials from Gourock.com are available to be fabricated as 3-dimensional products.  Lots of times you'll see this type of construction done for uses such as batting cage nets and golf cage nets - but there are also many other applications that are very well suited for this sort of design.  For instance, Gourock has supplied customized 3D nets for soccer goals, sports facility containment, animal and bird enclosures, institutional applications, trade-shows and events, and a host of other diverse uses. 

A general similarity between all of these types of netting constructions is that they all require a ceiling, a pair of sides walls, and at least one end panel - all seamed together into a complete finished 3-dimensional or "cube-like" final product.  Some of them can be quite large, for instance dozens of feet in height X width X length.  Other instances require the nets to be more moderate in sizing, to fit into smaller areas such as custom frames or within indoor space constraints.  As as each of these types of netting productions generally share some typical features, most also integrate a host of unique characteristics that are specific for that particular customer and their preferences.

Built from the highest quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, custom nylon netting enclosures supplied by Gourock.com are extremely durable, highly customizable, and produced per-order using 100% American materials and fabrication.  You can find many examples of netting enclosures throughout this blog and also on the Gourock.com site itself, and here are 3 recent examples from the last couple of weeks or so:

Example 1:
Netting:  #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon
Sizing:  8' high X 12' wide X 2' deep
Application:  box-style custom soccer goal net




Example 2:
Netting:  #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon
Sizing:  9’-6” high X 18’ wide X 16’ long
Application:  baseball/softball soft-toss enclosure

Example 3:
Netting:  #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon
Sizing:  (12’/8’) high X 16’ wide X 14’ long (height is 12’ in front, and tapers to 8’ tall in back)
Application:  hockey goal shooting containment

Custom Nylon Nets Featuring Rope Riblines

Over the last few weeks there have been hundreds of customized nylon netting productions supplied by Gourock for a very wide range of customers and users.  From private and individual persons to large professional/commercial clients, nylon netting panels and fabrications have been produced and shipped out for dozens of unique applications and intended uses.  Many of the nets that are required to be manufactured include interesting features and details, mainly to enhance the feasibility of the final installation and the overall preferences of the user for whatever the netting is intended to accomplish.

One of the popular and useful features that is consistently included on many custom nylon netting jobs is a construction addition known as a "ribline".  Riblines are ropes that are sewn within the internal area of the mesh, and they add additional opportunities to clip/connect the netting to the structure or cabling that is to support it.  Gourock.com can quote and supply netting panel designs that feature rope riblines with nets that are constructed from the DuPont® Type 66-728 knotted nylon netting.  There are 3 mesh sizes, and multiple twine-thicknesses available in that material - so there will most always be an option that will be best suited for your intended application.

Here are some recent examples of nylon netting panels that were constructed with internal riblines:

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.
