A couple of Unique Polyester Fabric Productions

Throughout the years Gourock.com has supplied thousands of custom netting productions and designs, and many great examples can be referred to throughout this company blog, as well as on our website.  We do have another product line as well that has been gaining some traction in the custom-fabrication aspect of business as well.  These are the Industrial Fabrics, and they include both polyester and polyethylene materials.  These are great materials that feature very small mesh sizes, which make them very popular for debris and containment applications - as well as for a lot of multipurpose uses that require a more "screening/fabric" sort of material rather than a larger netting mesh configuration.

Although more limited in the available scope of custom shape/design opportunities than the knotted nylon, there are often very unique productions that do get manufactured for our customers from these fabrics.  Because they have a few more production limitations involved with them, should you want to consider the possibilities of a custom design from these fabrics it would be good to contact us first to see what might be available or possible.

The 449 Impact Polyester is one of these industrial fabrics that features very abrasion-resistant polyester material with a small 3/16" elongated mesh size.  It's great for a lot of athletic uses (hitting targets, reinforcement material, impact panels, etc.), but is also quite popular for construction and transportation clients as well.

Here is an example of a custom production that was built and shipped in the last week from the 449 Polyester.  These nets are being used as trailer/truck cover nets to contain materials within the bed of the fleet vehicles during travel.  The finished product features nylon webbing edges with brass grommets every 12" all around, and they are fabricated to a specified set of dimensions (to fit the customer's space) and as a 3-dimensional product.

HDPE Batting Cage Nets, #21 and #42

Although it's still just the beginning of winter, this is the time of year that many organizations, clubs, and individuals begin to make some plans for the upcoming baseball and softball seasons.  In fact, we often see year-round batting practice and pitching training being the norm for many different types of players, coaches, and trainers.  Whatever your approach to hitting is - whether it be for basic fun or for something more applied and intense - Gourock.com has quite a few different options to consider for batting cage nets that can be installed in both indoor and outdoor applications.

Over the years we have typically offered a more sporadic and limited inventory of HDPE nets, built from a variety of different twine thicknesses and dimensions.  For this year we have a great selection of high-end HDPE batting cage nets in our online store for your consideration.  For a more moderate or residential setting, the #21 twine thickness nets are a very nice option.  And for high-abrasion and heavily trafficked installations (like teams, clubs, schools, and facilities) there is the thicker #42 twine nets available.

Below will be some background information and details about this line of HDPE batting cage nets, and you can always click over to this product page on the Gourock.com site.
And take advantage of a really great shipping deal that is currently going on with these nets - which is a $12 UPS Ground for them (no matter what the weight or sizing)!

The HDPE Batting Cage Nets feature high-density polyethylene #21 X 1-3/4" and #42 X 1-3/4" netting, 3/8" HDPE "Posi-Lock" rope borders (on all edges + ceiling-line), an overlapping Entrance Door, and 3' Rope Tails off all top corners/lines. Netting is twisted/knotted/square-mesh with Complete UV Stabilization.
Great for Moderate-Duty (#21 HDPE) and Heavy-Duty (#42 HDPE) outdoor & indoor installations!
