Custom Bird Barrier Netting for Industrial Applications

Custom Bird Barrier Netting for Industrial Applications

Bird barrier netting and bird exclusion nets are very important features of many industrial sites and locations, and have the primary benefits and purposes of keeping birds out of certain working sites.  For example, sites like airports, mines, oil drilling locations, and factories will often utilize various types of retention ponds - and these ponds need to be covered with bird exclusion nets to protect wildlife from getting into the waters they contain.  In other instances there are warehouses, factory floors, and storage buildings that also utilize bird barrier nets to keep them free of errant birds and nests.  In all of these cases, along with many other unique bird netting installations, the point is always to maintain a clear separation between the natural environment of a bird population and man-made industrial zones - for both the safety of the animals as well as the assets within the areas in question (workers, machinery, materials, etc.). has many years of bird netting experience, and can supply customized bird nets for a wide variety of sizes and shapes.  Featuring a great selection of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses, has online availability for custom bird netting and pond netting that can most certainly match your sizing and function requirements.  For really helpful online information and ordering, we offer an Online Custom Netting Calculator and additional product information here:

A few years ago we did a bird netting supply for a commercial industrial site in Maine that required some very customized nets to properly cover the front end areas of their storage pavilions.  In the last few weeks there were more of these nets needed for an expansion of buildings on the same site.  The most noticeable design feature of the nets and the installation area is a semi-circle roof design, which is fairly typical for many industrial pavilion structures.  In this case, the site operator needs to be able to quickly access the interior of the structure within the course of work, so the netting would need to be built to allow a convenient pass-through for both people and vehicles/machinery.  The best approach for our customer was to have the nets prepared in 2 halves that meet in the middle, allowing access through the netting just like a curtain.  The nets were built slightly wider to incorporate an overlapping design, meaning that they were pretty well sealed-up to avoid gaps between the the 2 nets when hanging.

The material for this bird netting application is the #18 X 1" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  This 1" nylon netting features an additional tar-coating for maximum outdoor weather resilience, as well as a very high tensile rating and abrasion resistance.  Paired with a fully-sewn 5/16" polyester rope bordering around the perimeter edges, this netting is ideal for longterm bird exclusion installations as it maintains high durability and ease-of-use for many, many years.  100% Made-in-USA from the raw materials to the final production, the tarred nylon netting options from are a highly recommended selection for most all industrial bird barrier installations.

As you can see from the images below, these custom nets from were built with a very unique set of dimensions and shapes - and are all constructed to match the specific sizing required by our customer for their particular structures.  Featuring a tapered shape, these nets are hung along the radii of the roofline in order to functionally cover the pavilion ends.  For any bird exclusion netting and bird net situations that you may be looking for, feel free to contact us at Gourock and we can most likely supply you with the custom netting that you need!
