Nylon Netting Featuring Custom Cut-Outs and Notches

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of high-quality netting and netting products, including customized fabrication options.  Custom netting productions can include a variety of unique features including special dimensions, tapers and angles, and notches or cut-outs in the finished shape.

Nets that are to be made to customized shapes are generally used for specific areas of coverage.  For instance, on a lot of warehouse locations there are beams/rafters/voids that need to be covered with barrier/containment netting for some reason or another, but in order to be effective the netting has to be constructed with a taper, angle, or notch to fit the unique space.  In other examples there are existing poles or frames that are already in-place and require netting to have a special shape in order to be effective.  We also see many residential customers that need their barrier netting to fill-in a specific region of their homes or properties - such as spaces above lofts, ceilings, railings, or rooflines.

Gourock.com has the ability to examine, quote, and supply custom netting that is prepared per-order to match your specific sizing needs.  Netting is used for a high range of athletic, safety, multipurpose, and aesthetic applications - along with industrial, agricultural, and professional uses as well.  Whether you are representing a large corporation, a municipal or scholastic organization, or are a private individual - feel free to drop over a line our way through Gourock.com and let us know what you are aiming for.  Chances are very good that we'll have some fabrication and material options available to you for a custom netting production that will be an excellent solution for your project.

Here are three recent examples of some custom nylon netting orders that each feature a notch or cut-out within the final net design, and we hope that these help provide you with a bit more context on what is available to you from Gourock.com:

Custom Nylon Nets for Sports Courts, Fields, and Facilities

Nylon netting is such a great product solution for so many different applications because it has a high tensile strength, high abrasion resistance, is user-friendly, and from Gourock.com it can be prepared to most any particular sizes that are required for the job.  A significant part of the market for netting includes people that need to contain objects and balls within sports courts, practice fields, and within athletic facilities.  Each one of these types of netting installations has its own unique characteristics and sizes to be considered, as well as what types of balls/objects are being contained by the net itself.

Gourock.com supplies DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting in a great variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses.  This netting is what is supplied and installed in the majority of sports training areas and courts.  Gourock can have the netting prepared to your own customized dimensions and sizes, so that you can achieve the best possible fit and appearance for the overall netting installation and finished job.

A high number of netting panels that are manufactured for stadiums/fields, courts, and athletic centers feature even more unique shape features and sizing requirements.  Often including tapers, angles, or unique shapes - the custom nets supplied by Gourock can be made to most closely line-up with the contours of the available space, or to closely connect to the existing installation structure.  For instance, an indoor sports training facility may need some tapered nets to follow the angle of their roofline.  Or a set of barrier nets around a court may need to be angled to match the dimensions of exiting poles and wires.  Every installation is different, and should you want to source customized netting panels to most accurately complete your job - contact us at Gourock.com with your details and we can get a quote made for what we can supply.

All custom nylon nets from Gourock.com are 100% Made in the USA, and turnaround times are quick.  DuPont® 66-728 knotted nylon netting is a very high-end material with superior strength and durability for full-time outdoor and indoor installations.

Here are four recent examples from this spring that help show some of the customized and tapered nets that Gourock has supplied to different customers that all were doing a sports court, field, or facility installation:

A Couple of Interesting Custom Batting Cage Nets

Baseball and softball batting cage nets can be found at people's private homes, at schools and park/rec departments, universities, stadiums, and training facilities.  For many, many years Gourock.com has supplied hundreds of customers with batting cage nets that are best suited for that user's particular needs.  Most batting cage nets are constructed in a fairly basic netting "tunnel" design, with a consistent height X width X length.  Different types of netting materials and strengths are available, and most customers pick a net that best aligns with their sizing needs, their expected amount of wear-and-tear, and of course their preferences on pricing.  Gourock.com offers a great selection of high-quality batting cage nets that perform very well for all types of different installations and users - and you can get a good context on these "typical" netting designs on this part of our site.

But there is another side to batting cage netting, which generally leans towards customized designs and sizing requirements.  There are a few primary situations in which the customized batting cage netting productions are often needed - with the main one being that there is an existing installation structure or area that is unique in shape or size and the only functional way to get a net hung correctly is to have it built to best match the space.  We see this often with commercial baseball and softball training facilities, as well as a lot of indoor installations.  Another typical situation in which the batting cage netting needs to be more customized is for "plus sized" nets.  This is typically an installation that requires extra height, width, and length - usually for multiple training/hitting areas in a row.  Separate divider panel nets usually accompany the enclosure netting for these types of orders.

Gourock.com has custom batting cage nets constructed from the highest quality materials, including DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, and braided Dacron® ropes.  Featuring 100% Made in the USA materials and craftsmanship, and quick manufacturing turnaround, custom netting and enclosures from Gourock are available to be produced according to most any sizing specifications that you have for your project, business, facility, school/team, or municipal organization.

Here are a couple of examples from this spring that show some of the customized features and designs that we are capable of providing for batting cage netting enclosures.  These are both for commercial training facilities and have various unique characteristics that were requested by our customers so that the finished product fit their particular installation areas the best.
