Custom Nylon Netting and Nets for Unique Spaces

There are many different types of custom netting solutions available from, 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. 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. 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.

Custom Netting Panels, Specialized Shapes for Larger Areas 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. 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 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.

Pallet Rack Guard Netting, Customized Nets

Pallet rack guard netting is available from for custom fabrication according to any particular dimensions needed. Safety netting for warehouse storage racks, flue spaces, and pallet racking is very beneficial for product retention and employee protection from falling objects. 

Typical mesh size selections for pallet rack nets range from 1-3/4” to 4”, and there are a variety of twine thicknesses to consider. A good general/moderate strength option to consider is the #21 X 1-3/4” nylon netting, or the #30 X 4” nylon netting. Heavy duty pallet rack guard nets are often the #36 X 1-3/4” nylon netting, or the #72 X 1-3/4” nylon. And for warehouse rack nets that need different coloring selections, the #40 X 2” nylon netting is a good selection for color features and options. 

Warehouse pallet rack guard nets are generally recommended to be ordered with a rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges, which is an option available right through our online netting calculator. Rope bordering adds a significantly stronger attachment edge for installation of the safety nets to your existing pallet rack framing, or to offset brackets that are already mounted.

Custom Conveyor Belt Netting

Containment and protective barrier netting for conveyor belt applications is available to order from according to your own custom dimensions and sizing. Conveyor belt safety netting is a helpful solution for protecting objects that may possibly be ejected off the traveling line in some fashion, but containing them on the belt or by blocking them from falling underneath the belt. 

Conveyor belt containment and protective netting is popular for industrial, warehouse, manufacturing, and logistical/shipping types of locations and installations. Many nets are installed vertically around conveyor belts, to keep objects contained as they travel. Whereas other nets are hung or suspended underneath conveyor belts to catch objects that may fall off or slip through the belt. 

There are many different mesh and twine sizes available for conveyor belt containment netting purposes, ranging from small 1/4” mesh sizes all the way up to larger 4” mesh sizes. Depending on the sizes and weights of the typical objects/parcels that you are looking to contain within the conveyor belt area, you can select the strength of material and mesh size that will be the best fit for you. Netting can be ordered according to most any specific dimensions or sizing that you require for the project. 

Some historically popular conveyor belt containment netting selections are 1/4” polyester mesh, 3/4” knotted nylon netting, and 1-3/4” knotted nylon netting. Whether you are seeking replacement conveyor guard nets, or passive overhead protective nets, we have dependable custom net options for your conveyor belt safety applications.

Installing Cable & Hardware for Barrier Netting, Sports Nets, & Netting Panels

Barrier nets and netting panels are often hung and suspended from wires and cables.  This is a typical netting installation technique for golf barrier netting, baseball and sports stadium protective nets, soccer/basketball/volleyball barrier netting, bird nets, leaf and debris netting, warehouse rack nets, golf nets, and most any general use or multipurpose netting application.

This video is a helpful guideline provided by that provides a general idea of how to approach a cable installation for your netting job.  Shown in this presentation is a typical cable installation, with an attached netting panel, all demonstrated on a smaller scale for reference. 

Demonstrated is the the use, placement, and assembly tips for the following cabling hardware materials:

  • 3/16" galvanized aircraft cable
  • 3/16" cable clamps3/16" aluminum sleeves
  • 3/8" turnbuckles
  • 5/16" galvanized snap-hooks
  • bungee ball straps

Nylon Netting Panels With Custom Shapes 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:

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, 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 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!
