A Recent Custom Art/Sail Project

One of the unique aspects of being in the netting industry is that there are so many different uses and applications for the materials, and we encounter many customers that utilize mesh and netting for art projects and alternative uses.  It's always great to hear about the different gallery, loft, and museum applications for netting, as well as all of the television, film, and theatre production uses too.  And of course there are tons of private individuals that have their own specific project in-mind, and at we're glad to be a source for functional netting materials that people can depend on for their artistic endeavors.

A recent local customer from the Puget Sound region worked with us to attain a certain type of mesh that he was seeking for his custom sailboat graphical sail project.  After going through a couple of samples and a few different supply options, the 1/4" Hex Mesh Polyester material was chosen to be the best candidate for the job.

After our customer figured out the sizing that he required for the project, we had the material prepared to the overall dimension needed and shipped it down his way.  From there on out he already had a plan in-mind for further fabrication, shaping, and painting of the polyester mesh.

Here is a photo of the completed project that was forwarded up our way - it looks great Jeremy!

Home Style Batting Cages - Recent Customer Review

The Home-Style Batting Cages that are available through are a very popular and well-received product that we have supplied for many years.  There are options to be shipped the nets on their own (to be hung/suspended within an existing framing or installation structure), or to utilize the netting with the 2" In-Ground Poles that provide a great support design for the batting cage.

Detailed product information is available in the store about the different sizes and options that are available for your consideration - and a recent customer of ours submitted a review and photos of how it all came-together for them this spring:

Just a Thank You.

I just wanted to send a note to your company. I ordered a 12' X 12' X 55'
batting cage system. I have to say...this is the nicest cage for a
home that I have ever seen. It's very study and easy to take down in
high winds (we get that a lot here in Idaho Falls, ID). It's very
roomy and the perfect size for hitting off a machine and pitching
practice. It took approximately 5 hours total to construct...but well
worth it. We are very impressed. Thank you very much! I included some
pictures of the finished product in a corner of our backyard.

I know word of mouth goes a long way. I am very pleased with your product.

Thanks again,
John B.

Thank you very much John!  We really appreciate your business and feedback - your setup looks really great, and enjoy your new batting cage!
