Nylon Sports Netting Built To Custom Shapes, Tapers, and Sizing

Nylon Sports Netting Built To Custom Shapes, Tapers, and Sizing


Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom netting that can be fabricated according to your own preferred sizes and dimensions.  Because we can facilitate your specific sizing and dimensional needs for nets, you can get the most accurate and professional solution for your netting installation projects.  This is very helpful for a wide variety of sports netting uses and applications, used by a diverse population of athletic net end users.  For example, one client may be using netting for a stadium or facility installation at a municipal, scholastic, or professional location.  Another customer may be a private individual that requires custom netting for an at-home sporting requirement such as blocking balls or hitting balls into.  And often we supply teams and organizations with custom sports netting designs that are built to install well within field-houses, gymnasiums, and spectator/bleacher areas.  Along with dozens of other examples we have experience facilitating netting for, at Gourock.com we offer the highest quality custom sports and athletic nets that are personally constructed per-order according to your own preferred sizes.

In addition to offering personalized widths/lengths right through our Online Custom Netting Calculator, at Gourock we also offer the ability to fabricate nets and sport netting that features unique shapes, tapers, and angles.  There are many different reasons why many of our customers need nets that are built to angled shapes, and usually the primary consideration is that the netting is meant to "fill-in" areas of cover that may incorporate rafters, rooflines, tapered structural designs, staggered wires or posts, walls, or any other space that would be best suited for a non-rectangular netting installation.  Using the most high quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, the custom nets supplied by Gourock.com are 100% Made In USA, prepared per-order, and with quick leadtimes for production and shipment.  If you have a project that you'd like to have us take a look at for the netting supply, definitely feel free to contact us and forward any pertinent information you have available.  Our online contact page at Gourock.com allows you to include photos/diagrams/files and to request quotations from us, or also free netting sample swatches of our nylon netting options.

To help demonstrate some of these custom tapered sport netting examples, here are 4 instances of very unique nets that were all fabricated to our customer's specifications - all incorporating tapered and angled finished shapes.  Each example in this particular list reflects nets used to block or contain objects for a sporting or athletic necessity.  We corresponded personally with each customer, and developed CAD images and quotations for their specific nets - based on their specific sizing needs.  Once all was put into production, most were produced and shipped within 5-10 business days.

EXAMPLE 1:
Intended Netting Usage:  Residential location, golf barrier netting to protect the side of a house from errant shots/drives from a nearby golf course fairway.
Netting Type:  #12 X 1" twisted-knotted nylon, with 5/16" braided-polyester rope bordered edges.
Special Considerations:  The tapers and angles on this netting production were designed to correlate with the dimensions and shape of their gable, roofline, and house sizing.  This customer was primarily interested in protecting their windows from be struck by golf balls - and they wanted to mount/suspend the netting from their gable.  The dimensions shown in the production drawing demonstrate the slopes and sizes that are completely unique for this customer's netting solution needs.



EXAMPLE 2:
Intended Netting Usage:  Residential location, golf barrier netting to protect windows from errant shots/drives from a nearby golf course fairway.
Netting Type:  #18 X 1" twisted-knotted nylon, with 5/16" braided-polyester rope bordered edges.
Special Considerations:  The tapers and angles on this netting production were designed to correlate with the dimensions and shape of the bottom part of their raised deck.  They had an open space under the deck that had errant golf balls flying into, putting the basement windows in jeopardy of damage.  The dimensions shown in the production drawing demonstrate the slopes and sizes that are completely unique for this customer's netting solution needs.



EXAMPLE 3:
Intended Netting Usage:  Baseball stadium barrier netting and safety nets, intended to cover an open area of the spectator/bleacher space that was still subjected to foul balls.
Netting Type:  #36 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon, with 5/16" braided-polyester rope bordered edges.
Special Considerations:  There were two spectator areas of the stadium that were wide-open to foul ball impacts, which were creating unnecessary safety risks.  Each zone incorporated safety railing and structural elements that needed to be accounted for in order for the nylon netting to fit the space correctly.  The netting was to be directly connected/laced to the existing rails, so in order to achieve a professional fit the dimensions shown in the production drawing demonstrate the slopes and sizes that are completely unique for this customer's netting solution needs.



EXAMPLE 4:
Intended Netting Usage:  Commercial sport/gaming use.  This was a commercial vendor that offers a variety of basketball shooting games at events, and they required netting to contain shots within the game area.
Netting Type:  #21 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon, with 5/16" braided-polyester rope bordered edges.
Special Considerations:  These nets were built to accommodate a commercial basketball shooting/return game offered by our customer.  The surrounding area of each game required netting to contain the basketballs within the confines of the shooting space as the game was underway.  They offered 4 different sizes of their game, so there were 4 different tapered netting sizes required to professionally fit the sides of each game.  The dimensions shown in the production drawing demonstrate the slopes and sizes that are completely unique for this customer's netting solution needs.

Custom Netting for Garden and Agricultural Installations

Custom Netting for Garden and Agricultural Installations


At Gourock.com we specialize in the supply of custom netting products that can be used for a very wide array of intended applications.  Many of the well known uses for a lot of netting include athletic purposes, industrial needs, stadiums and parks/ranges, bird barrier, and property protection.  However, netting is a really functional solution for more unique and niche purposes as well - and one of these popular uses is for gardening and agriculture.

Our company supplies custom netting to all types of end-users, including commercial, government, professional, scholastic, and private residential customers.  For gardening purposes and agricultural applications, Gourock.com has been a preferred netting source for very large industrial farming operations, as well as a substantial volume of private residential farms and gardens of all sizes.  With Gourock.com you have very convenient custom sizing options directly through our site, allowing you to get nets that are fabricated according to most any particular dimensions that you prefer to use for your project.  The following example demonstrates how one of our recent customers planned and developed a very nice netting installation at their home garden site.

Our customer in Utah has a stout and solid roof framing covering a trellis area in his garden.  The issue that he wanted to alleviate was birds picking from the vines on the trellis, and also to provide a bit more of a shaded area to help block some of the direct overhead sunlight during the middle part of the day - as well as being a blockade against potential hail situations.  His primary concern was to exclude smaller-sized birds from getting into the area, so the mesh size of the netting would need to be pretty small in order to perform as expected.  In addition, he wanted to integrate a material that would have the ability to easily roll-up around the pulley/spool design he constructed (allowing him to efficiently pull the vertical barrier netting up-and-down as needed).  He planned on having both longer sides be "roll-up" nets, with the two ends being fixed in-place.  The upper roof area was to remain as a stationary net, spanning the arching horizontal area full-time.

At Gourock.com we prepared and supplied the perfect netting choices and materials for this particular garden project, and they were easily fabricated to the custom dimensions that best-fit our customer's needs for this design.  For the netting that was to cover the 2 longer sides, and to be spooled/rolled around his pulley retraction system, the best material to use was the DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting100% Made in USA,  this knotted nylon netting available from Gourock features very high tensile strengths and abrasion durability, along with being a "fabric-like" netting that easily spools and condenses - making it have a high level of usability and function.

The best match mesh size for his needs was the 3/4" square mesh netting, which is a really great exclusion net product for small birds.  The twine thickness in this case was the #15 twine, which is a 1.8mm diameter with a 144 lb. tensile strength rating.  Black in color, and fully prepared for outdoor UV and moisture exposure, the #15 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting is a fantastic and long-lasting option for bird barrier installations in gardens.  There were 4 nets that he custom-ordered from this netting, each one specifically sized to meet his needs for the actual installation structure.  The 2 nets for the longer sides (roll-up sides) were each built to 9' X 15'.  For the 2 nets needed on the ends (stationary), those were both prepared to the sizing of 9' X 6'-6".

The #15 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting does not provide much shading or light-blocking however, so a different material was recommended and supplied for the upper roof netting.  The material needed to still function as a bird deterrent, but also was to incorporate a degree of light-blocking and protection against occasional hail circumstances.  His horizontal roof area features an arching design, so the netting was expected to easily install over the top of the arching tubing, and lay evenly across the space.  The best material for this part of the project was the HDPE 50% Shade Cloth that we have available.  This shade cloth blocks 50% of light, allowing for a decent amount of shading - and is often used for debris containment applications, making it optimal for hail barrier as well.  The netting size ordered and prepared was 8' X 18'.

Gourock.com allows you to order all of our nylon netting and shade screen materials according to your own specific customized dimensions, directly online through our Custom Netting Calculator.

Take a look at the 3 photos below to get a good conceptual look at this custom garden netting installation, and how it all turned out in the end.  We think it looks really great - and the report back to us is that everything is performing just as planned.

Thank you again Clabe!  It was very nice working with you, and we appreciate your business very much!
