Commercial Professional Batting Cage Nets, Custom Sizes and Features

For many years Gourock has been the professional and commercial source for high-end custom batting cage netting enclosures, for both full-time outdoor and indoor training facilities and organizations.  Built from very high quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, 100% fabricated in the USA, Gourock.com can supply your professional and commercial establishment with customized batting cage nets and netting enclosures that are fabricated to your own preferred sizing and with additional custom features or additions that you may need.  The nylon batting cage nets that we produce are installed at baseball and softball training facilities, university and scholastic baseball and softball facilities, professional baseball stadiums, commercial sports training and batting cage installations, and many other high-abrasion and high-traffic sports facilities that require netting.

For commercial baseball and softball batting cage netting and impact netting installations, the recommended twine and mesh selections are the #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon, and the thicker #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon.  Both are the DuPont® material, black in coloring, and have high tensile strength ratings and abrasion resistance.  The #36 nylon is a 2.5mm twine thickness with a 381 lb. tensile rating (breaking strength per twine).  The heavier option is the #72 with the 3.5mm twine thickness and 740 lb. tensile rating.  At Gourock.com you have the option to have batting cage netting enclosures produced to any dimensions that you need - and the Online Netting Calculator allows you to enter the height, width, and length preferred:

Many sports training facilities also have more customized requirements as well, in addition to needing specific dimensions and sizes.  For instance, many batting cage nets that are being installed for team training or commercial uses need to incorporate entrance doors located at particular areas of the netting.  Other times, the netting design is built with angles, tapers, or notches in-order to correctly fit specific spaces, rooflines, walls, or framing design details.  Other popular custom design features include additional ceiling line ropes and additions of separate divider panel nets.

Gourock supplies custom nylon netting productions that are built per-order, from 100% Made in the USA materials and craftsmanship.  Feel free to contact Gourock.com with requests on netting production availability and we can take a look at your request and quote some custom netting options for you.

Here are a couple of examples of commercial batting cage nets that were produced and shipped out in the last few weeks that incorporate many customized netting designs and requested custom features.  

EXAMPLE 1:
This custom batting cage net was built for a commercial baseball batting and training facility in South Plainfield, New Jersey.  It is an indoor installation that has a high-traffic consideration, so the material used for the job was the #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  This netting production has many customized design features, including:

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 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

Baseball & Softball Field Backtop Stadium Netting

Barrier nets and protective netting panels are generally considered pretty imperative components of a baseball or softball field construction.  For instance, barrier netting is used to block and protect spectators from foul balls, and is installed around the perimeter of the outfield fence to contain home run balls within the playing area (avoiding hitting vehicles or pedestrians outside of the complex).  Other very necessary and popular netting installations at baseball fields is the containment and barrier netting used on backstops.  Using Gourock.com you can source the right baseball and softball backstop and barrier netting for your field and/or backstop construction.  Gourock supplies custom nylon nets that are prepared and shipped to you according to most any particular dimensions that you require.  There are convenient online netting calculators on the site that are used to efficiently and quickly price and order custom nets, with a few different construction features to consider.

Baseball and softball barrier netting is generally recommended to be the 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting, with a 5/16" polyester rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  There are a couple of recommended twine thicknesses to consider, which are the #21 (2.0mm) and the #36 (2.5mm).  The reasons for these selections and features are:
  • 1-3/4" mesh size is the best match for baseball/softball impacts, while still remaining as large as possible to minimize the visual nature of the material when hanging.
  • The rope bordering significantly reinforces and strengthens the edges of the netting panel, allowing for dependable connections to the installation cables/wires/tubing/etc. for the long-haul.
  • The two different twine thicknesses allow for a choice between more general-use barrier installations and more high-abrasion installations.  For instance, the #21 is great for foul-line nets - whereas the #36 is great for the backstop nets.
  • All materials are black, bonded against moisture, and UV stabilized for full-time outdoor installations for many years.
Often, baseball field barrier nets and backstop nets require some additional custom features to be integrated into their design as well.  For instance, there are many instances noted on our Gourock site and this company blog of netting panels that require shapes or tapered edges.  Also very typical for custom nets that are being installed at sports facilities is a construction add-on known as a "rope riblines".  These are additional 5/16" polyester ropes that run through the inner area of the netting, in addition to running along the entire perimeter of the mesh.  Riblines are reinforcement features - meaning, they are added to the netting to line-up with the structural elements that the material is being connected to (wires, cables, tubing, poles, railings, etc.).  At Gourock.com we often see nets with riblines being sourced by commercial organizations, schools/municipalities, universities, and other larger-scale netting installations that put a premium value on maximizing the ease-of-use and overall longterm durability of the overall netting installation.

Here is a great example from a couple of weeks ago that demonstrates exactly this sort of netting supply.  This is a large backstop net produced for a school district in Texas for an outdoor installation.  They opted for the thicker netting material, #36 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted DuPont type 66-728 nylon, as well as a series of both vertical and horizontal rope riblines running through the netting to make their attachments and connections to the existing backstop structure (as well as perimeter ropes around the edges).  And in addition to that, two of the netting panels also incorporate tapered edges to line-up with the guy-wire cables that are also already existing at the location as well.

Custom Nylon Nets for Sports Courts, Fields, and Facilities

Nylon netting is such a great product solution for so many different applications because it has a high tensile strength, high abrasion resistance, is user-friendly, and from Gourock.com it can be prepared to most any particular sizes that are required for the job.  A significant part of the market for netting includes people that need to contain objects and balls within sports courts, practice fields, and within athletic facilities.  Each one of these types of netting installations has its own unique characteristics and sizes to be considered, as well as what types of balls/objects are being contained by the net itself.

Gourock.com supplies DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting in a great variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses.  This netting is what is supplied and installed in the majority of sports training areas and courts.  Gourock can have the netting prepared to your own customized dimensions and sizes, so that you can achieve the best possible fit and appearance for the overall netting installation and finished job.

A high number of netting panels that are manufactured for stadiums/fields, courts, and athletic centers feature even more unique shape features and sizing requirements.  Often including tapers, angles, or unique shapes - the custom nets supplied by Gourock can be made to most closely line-up with the contours of the available space, or to closely connect to the existing installation structure.  For instance, an indoor sports training facility may need some tapered nets to follow the angle of their roofline.  Or a set of barrier nets around a court may need to be angled to match the dimensions of exiting poles and wires.  Every installation is different, and should you want to source customized netting panels to most accurately complete your job - contact us at Gourock.com with your details and we can get a quote made for what we can supply.

Unique Custom-Shaped Nylon Nets

Here at Gourock.com we specialize in the supply of customized nylon netting productions, and there is always a consistent run of very unique fabrications being completed and shipped out to various clients and customers.  One of the great characteristics of nylon netting is that there is a wide range of applications that are exceedingly well suited for the material.  Because the DuPont® nylon netting that we produce with is available in a variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses, there is almost always an opportunity for the netting to be a fantastic solution for a particular situation.

For instance, if a client is seeking netting to contain baseball and softball impacts, the 1-3/4" mesh size is perfect.  And then the decision comes down to how thick of twine would be most preferred - since there are lightweight, medium range, and heavyweight twine thicknesses available in that mesh size.  
So some example situations for each of these would be along the lines of:
#12 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting:  "I need a general barrier net to block random errant balls from a ceiling area in an indoor installation".
#21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting:  "I am seeking spectator barrier netting for the seating/stands at my baseball/softball stadium".
#36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting:  "I'm installing a divider net at my hitting facility that will be subjected to a high amount of impacts over a consistent time-frame".
#72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting:  "I'm setting up soft-toss and tee/hitting nets to constantly hit baseballs and softballs into everyday".

So these are just some very general ideas for context, but are a good way to get a grip on the different types of questions to consider when determining which sort of application you're doing and how to place the different netting options into their most typical places.  And you can use a similar thought process for every sort of sport, industrial application, multipurpose use, or general barrier and containment situation.  There is a great selection of mesh sizes, twine thicknesses, and materials supplied by Gourock.com for nearly every type of application you can think of.

Another aspect of things that makes the netting products that Gourock supplies very enticing, is that not only are there different strength/mesh options available - there is also the ability to have netting fabricated to customized sizing and shapes to best fit your specific area and job.  Here are four unique examples from the last few weeks that help demonstrate some of the jobs that are always being made-up and shipped out here at Gourock.com:

EXAMPLE 1 Netting: #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting + 5/16" rope bordering  
Custom Features: Tapered/angled shapes  
Usage/Application:  Overhead barrier netting at baseball/softball complex




EXAMPLE 2 Netting: #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting + 5/16" rope bordering

Nylon Netting Panels With Custom Shapes

Gourock.com supplies a pretty wide range of nylon netting options, and there are many customers that require some fairly custom shapes in order for the netting to accomplish the intended job correctly.  We typically see this sort of necessity with a lot of nets that are being hung or suspended within pretty particular framing structures or matching the contours of a building roofline.  There are lots of customers that opt to go with some bulk sections of netting so that they can then use the overall amount of material to "mold/adjust" within their specific area - and then cut the excess mesh if needed.  But many times the nets are going to be under a decent amount of tension or pressure around the edges, so it is highly beneficial in the long run to have a rope bordering sewn-in (which dramatically increases the strength of the product around the perimeter - and creates a very dependable attachment point for clips or hooks).

Some typical examples of netting installations that often require custom shape features include:
  • Baseball/softball backstops
  • Warehouse barrier applications
  • Ceiling nets covering yards or spectator areas
  • Golf barrier nets at driving ranges
  • Trash barrier nets around landfills
  • Netting for railings and stairs
  • Bird and animal containment applications
  • Sports stadiums and bleachers
  • And many multipurpose residential or industrial applications
Because Gourock offers a variety of mesh sizes and twine thickness for nets, there is generally a good selection to consider for your particular application.  For instance, you'd want to aim for a 1" mesh size if you're doing a gold driving range barrier net, and a 1-3/4" mesh size if you're doing a baseball/softball stadium or backstop net.  

Regarding the production of custom-shaped netting panels, the best way to get going on a project like that is to get some accurate measurements of the space/area that is to be covered by the nylon netting mesh, and forward a basic drawing over our way to take a looks at.  Let us know some details about what the netting is being used for (so that a proper mesh/twine can be suggested), and we can come up with an initial quote for you on getting the product made and shipped your way.

For some additional reference, here are a few recent examples of some custom-shaped nylon nets that were manufactured and shipped out to our customers over the last few weeks:

EXAMPLE 1
Netting: #18 X 1" knotted nylon netting
Custom Features: Tapered/angled top-edges
Usage/Application:  Warehouse bird-barrier netting



EXAMPLE 2
Netting: #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting
Custom Features: Angled edges on upper netting
Usage/Application:  Little league baseball field backstop netting



EXAMPLE 3

Baseball Field Backstop Netting

The supply of custom nets for baseball and softball field backstop installations is a very common occurrence here at Gourock.com.  Many different types of fields and stadiums require containment and barrier netting to keep balls from entering the stands, bleachers, or from flying into the surrounding parking lots or concession areas.  We have facilitated the design, production, and shipments of dozens (possibly hundreds) of custom netting panels for this exact application.  Whether you are souring netting solutions for a professional organization, community group, commercial facility, or a scholastic/municipal installation - chances are we have already successfully assisted a similar type of job in the past and can easily help you out with getting your upcoming project completed.

Generally speaking, the 1-3/4" mesh size netting is what you have installed for baseball and softball barrier applications.  We supply the highest quality and most dependable netting material in this mesh size, which is the DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting.  This netting selection has a very high abrasion resistance and tensile strength, and an excellent expectation of durability against the harsh effects of UV and the elements.  Featuring a latex/urethane bonding, UV stabilization, and black coloring - you can depend on the knotted nylon netting products supplied by Gourock.com.

One of the very convenient aspects of getting your backstop netting panels from Gourock is that you can order to any dimensions required for the job, and also spec most shapes/tapers as well.  The recommended approach is to go for 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter of each netting panel for maximum strength over the years, and usually the diamond mesh pattern will allow the production team to calculate the proper netting fit for your particular area.  The most popular twine thicknesses for baseball and softball containment nets are the #21 (241 lb./twine, 2.0mm) and the #36 (381 lb./twine, 2.5mm) - but we also have some options that are both thinner and thicker if you prefer.  Whatever you're aiming for just use our contact page to inquire and we'll get back to you with a quotation and suggestion.

Here is the most recent production from last week for a baseball club field in California that is completing a backstop installation.  Here are some of the features of this production for your reference, and images of the details follow:
  • #21 X 1-3/4" (241 lb./twine) black twisted-knotted nylon netting
  • diamond mesh pattern
  • 5/16" rope bordered on all edges
  • vertical rope riblines sewn-in for required installation attachments
  • additional horizontal rope ribline sewn-in for required installation attachments
  • custom tapered/angled shape for the upper netting (top net)

Baseball Field Barrier Nets

Throughout the late winter and early spring we coordinate the fabrication and supply of many baseball/softball field barrier nets and backstop nets.  These are actually a fairly popular application for installation throughout the entire year, but due to the approaching spring/summer sports seasons they become more of a priority for athletic departments, municipalities, and installation contractors.  Gourock.com has years of experience facilitating the production and shipments of stadium/field barrier netting panels and backstop nets for a diversified spectrum of customers including parks departments, universities, commercial/professional facilities, and regional booster clubs.

Every baseball and softball barrier netting installation has a unique set of dimensions and shapes that need to be accommodated in order for the overall installation to be effective and aesthetically functional.  Gourock.com can supply almost any custom shaping feature and arrangement of dimensions required for a particular field and job.  Generally speaking, these sorts of netting panels are built from the 1-3/4" mesh size knotted nylon netting.  The recommended twine thicknesses are the #21 (241 lb./twine) and the thicker #36 (381 lb./twine), and the DuPont® Type 66-728 Nylon material ensures maximum quality and long-term durability.  Often, the 1" tarred barrier netting is also a selected choice and does a really great job as well (available in #12 and #18 twine thicknesses).  The 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering is sewn-in on the perimeter meshes.
Contractors and recreation departments typically forward us a general schematic/drawing of their sizing/shape requirements to be provided with an accurate pricing quote, so feel free to us our contact page to drop over your attachments and notes.
