Custom Tapered Netting Designs

Tapered netting designs and supply are a fairly commonplace request from many customers that we service.  There are several reasons why tapered or angled features of a netting panel may be optimal, including situations like:
  • lining up the netting to a custom framing/structure
  • matching the netting panel to a property or boundary line
  • spanning netting panels between poles of various heights/lengths
  • "filling in the gaps" of spaces that are triangular shaped or sloped
  • matching up the barrier netting with a roofline or groundlevel
Of course, with custom netting supply there are always custom applications - so the examples above are only a small glimpse into the hundreds of uses that may require tapers/angles, but they represent a broad context for general use.  Throughout the Gourock.com site and also the Gourock Netting Blog you can view several examples of unique netting designs and applications, and below are a couple of recent ones from the last few weeks for your consideration.

This first example (see below) shows a combination of typical rectangular dimensions along with specific tapered/angled sections.  This netting panel was constructed from #12 X 1-3/4" Diamond Mesh Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, and featured the 5/16" Braided Rope Bordering sewn-in around the entire perimeter.  This particular netting production was part of a larger order of 15 nets for a sporting event in Miami, FL.  The net shown below was created to be an overhead/ceiling net that needed to be spanned between a set of posts/poles that were already in place for the event area.  This was the ceiling containment net, used to keep soccer balls and baseballs within the overall space - and the other netting panels were used to surround the area and act as the vertical barrier nets.
Gourock can typically supply customized netting shapes like this one, and in order to achieve the proper angles/tapers for the job the mfg. process required diamond mesh netting patterns and the rope bordering installed on the perimeter.  These requirements primarily have to do with the diamond mesh pattern having the ability to be arranged and trimmed correctly for angles (as opposed to a square mesh pattern), and the rope bordering holding the custom shape into its correct formation.
This second example (see below) is more indicative of a private/residential need for a custom-shaped netting panel.  This net has the purpose of a baseball training impact and hitting net that needed to be tapered to fit into an odd-shaped installation area.  Utilizing some very durable impact netting materials, including #36 X 1-3/4" DuPont® Type 66-728 Knotted Nylon Netting, additional "Diamond Shield Dipping", Dacron® rope bordering, and a Leadline Bottom edge - this netting panel also features a tapered shape to fit the customer's particular area.
