Interviews, news briefs, feature stories, and columns address every facet of managing an athletic department from new ideas in fundraising to changes in educational philosophy.  ATHLETIC MANAGEMENT - The source for high school and college athletics."

Latest Custom Netting Enclosures

Custom netting enclosures are basically 3-dimensional netting productions that are primarily intended to contain objects within a particular surrounding area.  They are most commonly referred to as "batting cage nets" or "golf cage nets", however Gourock.com provides netting enclosures that are used for a huge variety of applications including aviary/bird uses, multisport applications including cricket/lacrosse/field-hockey, animal control, and other unique purposes.  The most typical customized netting enclosures are produced and provided for commercial sports facilities, for indoor/outdoor areas that have installation structures built to a specific size, and for clients that really need some unique features integrated into the final netting design.

Custom netting enclosures are supplied from Gourock.com built from the highest-quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting.  They are seamed together using extraordinarily strong Dacron® ropes, and are generally ready to install right when they're removed from the delivered package.  The two mesh sizes that are available are 3/4" mesh and 1-3/4" mesh.  Twine thicknesses that are available to be quoted our range from the 1.8mm (#15) all the way up to the 3.5mm (#72).  Should you be interested in getting some quotes forwarded over to you for a customized netting cage, simply contact us with your dimensions and context - and we'll get the quote/summary back over to you ASAP.

You can always check out some really unique of custom enclosures that Gourock has facilitated and provided over the last few years at this page of our site.  Over the last few weeks there have been a few other notable jobs that have been quoted, manufactured, and shipped out to some of our appreciated customers - all of them designed according to specs required by the end-users.  Each one has a particular combination of twine/mesh size, overall dimension, custom features, and  intended application.  Here are 5 examples (with notations and images) that you may find notable while doing your own research into custom netting:
