Hemp Trellis Netting and Hemp Drying Nets

Hemp Trellis Netting and Hemp Drying Nets


Hemp trellis netting and hemp drying nets are available at Gourock.com, and are prepared to your own preferred custom dimensions, directly through our online custom netting calculator. Trellis nets and drying nets for hemp growing and hemp processing are supplied for commercial, industrial, and individual hemp operations and applications. Trellis netting and drying nets are installed in both vertical and horizontal orientations, in both indoor and outdoor locations.

There are 4 recommended netting types and sizes most generally used for commercial hemp trellis purposes, all of which are available according to your own custom sizing.

For most hemp trellis applications, the 4” square mesh size knotted nylon netting is the most fitting selection. There are two twine thicknesses sizes available, which are the #15 (144 lb./tensile) and the #30 (334 lb./tensile). The #15 X 4” square mesh knotted nylon netting is the generally recommended option, with the #30 being selected for high-abrasion or high UV exposure hemp trellis and drying operations.

For hemp netting applications that may require or prefer a smaller mesh size, the 1-3/4” square mesh size knotted nylon netting is the recommended selection. The two twine thicknesses sizes to consider in this case are the #12 (116 lb./tensile) and the #21 (241 lb./tensile). The #12 X 1-3/4” square mesh knotted nylon netting is the generally selected option for smaller mesh preferences, with the #21 being selected for higher-abrasion or higher UV exposure hemp trellis and drying operations.


All are constructed from 100% Made in USA DuPont Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting - and prepared per-order with efficient turnaround timing.

Custom Nylon Netting Featuring Tapered Shapes

Custom Nylon Netting Featuring Tapered Shapes


Gourock.com specializes in supplying custom nets and netting designs that can incorporate specific sizing needs, and many different types of shape characteristics.  We offer a diverse variety of netting mesh sizes and twine thicknesses, so there is almost always a fitting net solution for your needs and particular applications.  Our website conveniently allows for easy ordering of custom-sized nets built to most any dimensions that you need.  In addition, Gourock.com can also supply nets and netting panels that are built with tapered shape requirements, or angled/sloped designs.

Using the highest quality netting material, DuPont type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon, the customized netting panels we supply are hand prepared per-order with quick turnaround, and are 100% Made in USA.  The custom nylon nets that we ship out are built for a wide variety of intended uses and applications, and for customers ranging from private individuals to massive global corporations - as well as universities, municipalities, organizational firms, and professional commercial businesses.  Nylon netting is an excellent solution for many different and unique situations, and with Gourock.com you can have the netting prepared specifically to the sizing you require for your particular job.

Many of the custom nets that we ship out are not only fabricated to unique sizing, but they also feature tapered and angled shape aspects.  Oftentimes the nets that require a tapered or angled shape need to have that specific design to function correctly and fit neatly within non-square spaces.  This is a fairly commonplace situation for a lot of people in all types of different environments.  Some popular uses for tapered nets are installations around sloping rooflines, angled cables or wires, between railings or rafters, within non-square rooms and spaces, and other unique areas. 

Here are a couple of recent examples of some unique custom netting panels that we completed for a pair of appreciated Gourock.com customers.  Both have very different applications for the netting, but have similarities in that the best solution for each is a series of custom nets with tapered edges.

EXAMPLE 1:
Netting Type:  #15 X 3/4" (144 lb./tesnile) DuPont Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon
Construction Details:  Square mesh pattern, 5/16" polyester rope bordered around perimeter, 3 different netting panels that are each built to custom dimensions and with tapered/angled edges.
Purpose:  This netting is installed within a framing structure that our customer constructed in the backyard of their home.  The framing surrounds an area in the backyard that extends out from the house, and the purpose is to contain cats on the property.  The netting was constructed to line-up with the size and slope of the framing design, making it efficient to attach the nets to their specific areas and have a professional fit.




EXAMPLE 2:
Netting Type:  #21 X 3/4" (241 lb./tesnile) DuPont Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon
Construction Details:  Square mesh pattern, 5/16" polyester rope bordered around perimeter, 10 different netting panels that are each built to custom dimensions, with 6 of them requiring tapered/angled edges.
Purpose:  These nets were built to line-up with a series of wires/cables that are installed underneath a ceiling area within a commercial business.  These nets are hong horizontally underneath/between the wires, with a single net per particular segment.  Ceiling nets are typically used to block objects from hitting lighting/electrical/sprinkler aspects, or to keep falling objects from hitting people below.

Skateboard Ramp Netting - Skateboard Barrier Nets

Skateboard Ramp Netting - Skateboard Barrier Nets


Gourock.com specializes in supplying custom netting productions for a wide variety of unique applications and installations.  Netting is a fantastic solution for many different types of situations in which objects need to be contained within a space (or excluded from entry into an area), as well as instances in which general safety considerations are expected.  At Gourock.com you can order nets directly online that are fabricated to your own particular and specific sizes/dimensions, allowing you the best possible fit and function from the netting within your intended usage space.

We primarily specialize in preparing and supplying customized barrier nets and netting panels from the highest quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon - which is a 100% Made in USA product that we have available in many different mesh size and twine thickness options.  With the DuPont® nylon available from Gourock you are assured a netting product that features very high tensile strengths ratings, maximum abrasion resistance, great ease-of-use, and is very well prepared for full-time UV and moisture exposure.  The nets that we supply are extremely popular for both outdoor and indoor installations, and perform exceptionally well in both environments.

As we have noted throughout the Gourock.com site and our company blog articles, there is a seemingly endless list of popular uses and applications for custom nylon nets, ranging from industrial and professional locations all the way to private residential backyards and garages.  Because the custom nylon nets that we provide are so adaptable to such a wide spectrum of uses and needs, we get to work with people from all types of backgrounds and individual projects.  Here is a summary of a great installation from one of our appreciated customers that needed netting to contain skateboards within a ramp area that they have in their garage.

Situation:  Our customer has a skateboard mini-ramp in their garage in which they wanted to have the option to contain errant skateboards from leaving the immediate ramp area when in use.  A portion of the area (behind the ramp in the garage door) was to have a fixed netting panel that would generally remain in-place full-time, whereas the netting that was to block skateboards on the sides of the ramp would need to be able to behave like a curtain (to slide out of the way when the ramp is not in-use).  Our customer already had some anchor points installed in the garage door area to connect/suspend the stationary net between, and had provided us with his preferred dimensions of netting in order to get the fit and appearance preferred for that aspect of the project.  The stationary net function is to block errant skateboards from flying over the deck and out into the driveway.  For the netting that was to be the side barriers, he used the tensioned-wire approach to achieve the curtain-effect that was preferred.  Using this technique, a 3/16" wire is tensioned between a couple of eyebolts or stout supports, and then the top edge of the netting is clipped to the wire using 1/4" snap-hooks.  This provides a level plane to support the netting very well across the length - and also allows the opportunity to slide the netting back-and-forth (curtain-style) to expand or contract it as preferred.

Netting Type:  These nets were constructed from #36 X 1-3/4" (2.5mm, 381 lb. tensile) DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon, with a 5/16" Braided Dacron (3200 lb. test) Rope Bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  For the bottom edges of the side/curtain nets, a Heavy Rope (Leadline) Border was installed - which adds extra weight to the bottom edge of the netting (aiding in keeping the netting in-place and preventing it from easily raising up off the ground).

Thank you again Nathan!  Your garage and installation look really, really great and we enjoyed working with you on this project very much!

Custom Netting Enclosures and Cage Nets

Custom Netting Enclosures and Cage Nets


Gourock.com specializes in supplying our diverse range of customers with custom netting enclosures and cage nets, for a wide variety of different intended uses and applications.  A netting enclosure design is best visualized as a "box" of netting, with the side nets, end nets, and ceiling netting all seamed together into a 3-dimensional design.  Netting enclosures help ensure that all objects within the inner volume stay well contained within that area.  Some popular and traditional uses for netting enclosures include baseball batting cage nets, golf hitting nets, gymnasium enclosure netting, and bird/aviary cage nets.  However, netting is a really functional and durable solution for lots of different unique applications and industries - so there are always many different possibilities and uses for the netting cage nets and enclosure nets that we ship out.

Regardless of the application for the enclosure netting, it is vastly important that the material used is very durable to abrasion and created from high quality materials.  Gourock supplies custom enclosure nets that are constructed with 100% Made in USA DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon.  We offer a variety of different mesh sizes ranging from 3/4" up to 4" sizing, and many different twine thicknesses to select from.  This nylon netting can be fabricated according to most any particular dimensions and sizing that you may need, and is well prepared for both full-time outdoor and indoor installations.

Custom nets from Gourock.com can be built to your own specific set of dimensions, and also can be specialized with different enhancement features such as entrance areas/doors, tapered sizes and angles, notches and staggered sizing, additional rope-lines or heavy-rope bottom edges, and other similar build characteristics that allow our customers to get the best possible netting solution for their needs.  Our site offers some great materials and netting selections to order directly online, or you can contact us with more specific product fabrication needs that you may have and we can work on a personally prepared quotation for your request.  Gourock.com supplies netting customers from everything type of background possible, including professional and industrial clients, collegiate and scientific users, teams/organizations/municipalities, private residential properties, zoos/aviaries, government installations, and an endless list of unique businesses and contractors.

Here are 3 recent examples of different customized netting enclosures that we quoted, facilitated, and shipped direct to our customers.  Each one was a specific request for a unique set of sizing, features, and netting type - in order to best meet the needs, functionality, and purpose for the netting.  We can get quotations turned-around and submitted very promptly (usually same-day or by the next business day), and the custom nets available from Gourock.com are produced per-order and generally ready to ship out within 10 business days of your order.  These are hand-built products featuring 100% Made in USA materials and professional craftsmanship - feel free to get in touch with Gourock.com and let us know if we can help you with your custom netting solutions!
