Football Field Netting, Football Nets, and Field Goal Netting

Football Catch Nets, Custom Football Barrier Netting, Stadium and Field Nets

Gourock offers a variety of netting options for Football use, ranging from Kicking Practice Nets to Goal Post Safety Nets - all made to your own custom sizing requirements. 

Football barrier netting is available to be prepared to your own preferred custom dimensions, which can be entered into Gourock's online custom netting calculator. Nets for football and field or goal post containment are supplied for commercial, industrial, municipal, and residential applications - and are chosen for barrier installations in both outdoor and indoor settings. There are a few recommended netting types and sizes used for football barrier purposes, all of which are available according to your own custom sizing.

Nylon Netting

4” and 1-3/4” mesh nets are both recommended for football barrier netting, and we supply those meshes in a range of twine thicknesses. All are constructed from 100% Made in USA DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon. 

#21, #30, and #36 twine thickness nets are recommended for football fields, indoor divider nets, barrier nets, spectator protection, indoor training center nets, gymnasium barrier, football kicking nets, and most all multipurpose football barrier installations for residential, scholastic, municipal, commercial, and professional uses

#12 and #15 twine thickness are good selections for lightweight and low-impact general football protection, and are popular for high-ceiling protection, lighting and sprinkler barrier, indoor window barrier, and other multipurpose football uses where the thinnest and lightest netting option is preferred. 

Most net options are black in coloring, but for football barrier netting installations that may require some alternative colors, consider the #40 X 2” knotless nylon netting selection which can be supplied in Black, White, Blue, Yellow. 

For incorporating a very heavy-duty type of football barrier netting, the #72 twine thickness nylon is the maximum-strength and abrasion-resistant selection.

Kevlar and HMWPE High Performance Netting

#12 X 1-1/2” Kevlar is a DuPont® Kevlar Model 956 High-Performance netting featuring a very high 292 lb. tensile strength and very low visibility, and is typically used for professional-level hockey arena barrier nets and spectator bleacher protection safety netting at professional-level hockey facilities. This is a premium netting selection for ultra-strength barrier netting applications for hockey rinks, stadiums and training facilities, industrial applications, high-safety spectator and audience protection, warehouse and conveyor uses, and other professional and commercial installations requiring NFPA 701 Certified High-Performance netting. #12 X 1-1/2” Kevlar netting also includes a 4mm polyester (590 lb. tensile) cord bordering around the perimeter edges as a standard product feature.

#18 X 1-3/4” High Molecular Weight Polyethylene is the material used in Dyneema® and Spectra® branded twine and cordage. This is a High-Performance HMWPE netting featuring a very high 410 lb. tensile strength with low wind-shear %, and is typically used for professional-level stadium barrier nets and backstop netting, as well as spectator bleacher protection safety netting at professional-level facilities. This is a premium netting selection for ultra-strength barrier netting applications for baseball and softball stadiums and training facilities, industrial applications, high-safety spectator and audience prote ction, warehouse and conveyor uses, and other professional and commercial installations requiring High-Performance netting.

Scoreboard Protection Netting

Scoreboard Protection Netting

At Gourock.com we supply nets and netting panels that are used for a very wide variety of safety and protection needs.  At many different sporting facilities, stadiums, and arenas there are scoreboards in-place that need to be protected from impacts to prevent damage.  One of the best ways to protect scoreboards and displays is by installing a protective barrier net in front of it, and we can provide the nets built according to any particular dimensions needed for coverage.

For scoreboard protection netting that is used for larger object considerations, for instance in soccer and football uses, the 4" mesh size knotted nylon netting is a recommended and dependable selection.  For smaller objects such as baseball and softball protection purposes, the 1-3/4" mesh size netting options are to be used.  With the materials that we supply here at Gourock.com, including Nylon, Kevlar, and HMWPE netting options, you can use very strong netting twines that can be installed very tightly within the surrounding support structure.  The nylon barrier nets available from Gourock can be ordered directly online through our Custom Netting Calculator, and with the wide variety of twine thicknesses and mesh sizes to choose from you can source the best protective netting fit for your scoreboard protection.

Here is a recent example of a scoreboard protection netting installation at an outdoor soccer facility, and the netting that we supplied for this particular project was the #30 X 4" twisted-knotted DuPont® 66-728 nylon, with a 5/16" Dacron® rope bordered finishing edge.  The net was installed tightly within a surrounding framing of tensioned aircraft cable, and the intended purpose of the installation was to block the scoreboard from errant soccer balls and missed shots on goal.

Many thanks again to all of our very appreciated custom netting customers and clients!  Always feel free to keep in touch with us at Gourock.com and we can continue to facilitate your custom athletic netting needs!

Custom Netting and Net Productions for Bird Barrier, Gymnasium Lighting Protection, and Baseball Containment

Custom Netting and Net Productions for Bird Barrier, Gymnasium Lighting Protection, and Baseball Containment

Gourock.com specializes in custom netting supply, and nets that are built to custom sizes and dimensions.  The use of netting is a perfect solution for a huge variety of different safety, protection, exclusion, and containment situations and applications.  Gourock is a longtime market leader in e-commerce availability for custom nets, netting products, and barrier nets that are constructed to customer-specified sizes.  Featuring the highest-quality netting materials including: DuPont® 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon, Type 6 Braided-Knotless Nylon, DuPont® Twisted-Knotted Kevlar, and Twisted-Knotted HMWPE - we are your direct source for 100% Made in USA netting panels and net designs that are prepared according to nearly any sizing needs you have.

The custom netting that we provide is used by our customers for many different needs that they have, usually for various situations in which objects need to be blocked or contained within a particular space or area for safety, protective, or preferential reasons.  For broad context, for athletic installations the nets that we ship out are often installed to protect spectators, property, or surrounding areas from errant balls, pucks, or other sports equipment.  In another example, within industrial sites and warehouses the nets that we supply are often used for bird exclusion, pallet racking containment, railing barrier, or conveyor belt safety netting requirements.  And for many indoor locations the nets that we ship out are often intended to protect lighting, windows, or ducts - and also to dependably contain objects within specified spaces.

At Gourock.com you can get nets and netting prepared according to your own preferred sizes directly through our Online Custom Netting Calculator.  We offer a plentiful selection of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses, allowing you convenient access to the best-fitting and performing nets for your intended uses and needs.  In addition to nets that are rectangular or square-shaped, at Gourock we can also accommodate many different tapered or angled custom shapes for most netting options as well.  Should a more customized shape design for your netting be preferred, we invite you to contact us directly at Gourock.com with your inquiry and we can assist and quote you!

Examples of different custom netting productions are always helpful - and here are 3 recent examples from the last couple weeks for some unique nets and netting productions that we have facilitated.  Each of these following examples were quoted and prepared according to customer-specific sizing needs - and a common thread for each is that they incorporate tapers and custom shapes within their design.

Example #1:
This netting production is a very custom shape that has a series of tapered edges along one side that are meant to closely line-up with the roofline of an outdoor industrial storage pavilion in Maine.  Our client has a series of storage pavilions at their industrial location, and they need to block birds from getting inside.  Bird netting and bird exclusion nets are a specialty of ours, and the best netting selection for this particular barrier application was the #18 X 1" tarred twisted-knotted nylon netting with a perimeter 5/16" polyester rope bordering installed.  This new net from a couple weeks ago is actually a re-order and duplication of a series of the same netting design that we have previously done a couple times over the years - and the material performs perfectly in the Maine climate.  1" mesh size knotted nylon netting is a fantastic selection for bird exclusion nets, and the extra tarring treatment to the #18 twisted-twine enhances the netting netting durability and longterm dependability.  A net like this is generally completed and ready to ship out within 7-10 working days from the order date.


Example #2:
This is a great example of a custom netting enclosure that features a couple different tapered shape requirements that our customer required in order for the net to fit correctly within the installation space.  The production image shows the Top View of a baseball batting cage net that demonstrates that one of the netting walls and one of the netting ends both required an angled-shape design.  A batting cage net is a 3-dimensional enclosure of netting that has 2 sides, 2 ends, and top/ceiling netting all seamed together with rope bordered edges.  From within the enclosed net area you can then do all sorts of baseball and softball batting, pitching, and training while containing the balls within the space.  This custom batting cage net was 11' high X 12'-6" wide X 35'-10" long and was built from the #36 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon netting.  All edges were 5/16" Dacron® rope-bordered, and there was also a custom entrance door feature installed on one side net as well.  A net like this is generally completed and ready to ship out within 7-10 working days from the order date.


Example #3:
We supply a lot of netting that is built to protect lighting, ceilings, duct-work, and sprinklers within indoor training establishments such as gymnasiums, field houses, and arenas.  A very popular type of location that benefits from barrier and containment netting are soccer field houses and indoor soccer field training gyms.  Soccer is a type of sport that generally always has some some of ball containment considerations needed to be accounted for, whether the playing location is indoor or outdoor.  For the indoor soccer training spaces, Gourock.com often supplies ceiling cover nets and netting panels designed to cover lighting, windows, or other structural aspects that need to be protected from soccer ball impacts.  This custom netting panel example shows a net that is 43' X 54', with a tapered side that is incorporated into the shape of the finished product.  This panel was constructed from the most recommended soccer barrier netting selection we supply, which is the #30 X 4" twisted-knotted nylon netting.  The tapered side of the custom netting shape is to account for an angle in the walls that our customer has at his indoor soccer facility.  This netting is covering the ceiling area and is a soccer ball exclusion net to protect the facility lights and vents.  A net like this is generally completed and ready to ship out within 7-10 working days from the order date.



Many thanks again to all of our great customers and custom netting clients!  We appreciate your business very much!

Many thanks again to all of our great customers and custom netting clients!  We appreciate your business very much!

Custom Batting Cage Net #1:

This batting cage net features an extra-wide sizing, along with some additional ceiling rope lines for hanging and installing underneath cables/wires.  Every other edge has a rope bordering installed, and the netting used was the #36 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon.  This net was produced for a school district in Texas and is being used for scholastic, organizational, and team batting practice and training.  Production leadtime was 7 working days and the net was shipped out to location.


Custom Batting Cage Net #2:

This batting cage net was built from the #21 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted DuPont® nylon netting, and features a very traditional set of dimensions for full-size batting cage practice.  All edges with the exception of the bottom have a 5/16" rope bordering installed, and there is a ceiling line down the top netting as well.  Our customer requested an entrance door in a particular corner, which was built into the net as a 3' double-overlap of netting.  This batting cage tunnel net also shipped with a cable suspension kit, and is installed at a residential location for private-use batting and pitching.  Production leadtime was 6 working days and the net was shipped out to location.


Custom Batting Cage Net #3:

The batting cage netting in this order was very customized with many different unique features.  The sizing is extra wide, with a height difference between the back end-panel netting compared with the front and sides.  Our customer's preference for this feature was to account for some bottom edge cabling/wiring considerations they needed to work with.  Also, this net has an open-end on it, with a secondary netting panel included on the side.  The secondary netting panel is being used as a curtain to close-and-open the overall enclosure as preferred.  The netting in this job was the #36 X 1-3/4" twisted-knotted nylon, and the batting cage net design also includes rope bordered edges, weighted-rope bottom perimeter, and additional rope ceiling-lines for installation needs.  This commercial-style net is installed at a private training installation in Texas.  Production leadtime was 7 working days and the net was shipped out to location.

Here are four recent examples of some of the custom nylon netting panels that we have shipped out to some of our customers, including a bit of context on what type of netting was used and what the intended purpose of the netting and notch features are.  All of these nets were constructed from the twisted-knotted nylon netting, 100% Made in USA, and produced to be ready to ship within one business week (each).  If you have questions or inquiries about custom netting, or to be quoted on a netting project you have in mind, please feel free to contact us directly at Gourock.com and we can assist!

Example 1:
This is a custom net that is 5'-11" X 9' with a corner notch area that is 2'-8" X 2'-10".  The netting type used for this product was the #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon, provided in a diamond mesh pattern, with a 5/16" Dacron® rope bordered edge.  The notch design in this net was needed so that the netting could be installed within an empty space around a door area within a framing structure, and the netting is intended to block and contain baseballs and softballs.

Example 2:
This is a custom netting design that is 15' X 15', with a central notch area in the middle of the bottom edge that is 6' X 2'-6".  This custom netting panel was built from #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon, prepared in a square mesh pattern, and perimeter bordered with 5/16" Dacron® rope edging.  There were 2 nets of this sizing and shape produced for our customer, and the netting was intended for use in an outdoor art exhibit, in-which the notch area is being used as an entrance portal through the space.


Example 3:
This is a custom netting design that was built for one of our clients at an indoor soccer facility, and they use barrier netting to contain errant soccer balls from leaving the playing field.  This netting design is 11' X 55' with a central notch area that is 2' X 9'-10", in order for the overall netting panel to properly fit over the top of an entrance door that they have.  The netting is the #30 X 4" knotted nylon, built in a square mesh pattern, with the 5/16" rope bordered edge around the perimeter - and there were 2 of these nets shipped out to the location.


Example 4:
This custom netting production is 9'-6" X 17' in overall sizing, and has a built-in corner notch feature measuring 1'-2" X 3'-7".  This netting panel was constructed from the #21 X 3/4" twisted-knotted nylon netting, with a 5/16" Dacron rope border on the top and side edges, and a weighted-rope bottom edge sewn-in.  This netting is being used as a golf and multi-sport impact net in an indoor residential location, and the notch is there so that the netting panel accounts for a heating vent that is running through the space.

Recent Custom Nets Featuring Angles and Triangular Shaped Netting Productions

Netting and custom nets are really great solutions for a variety of different protective, containment, exclusion, and general safety needs.  When you think about different situations in which objects need to be blocked, contained, or protected in some manner - the use of netting or barrier nets is a dependable and convenient approach to solving the issue.  For instance, there are many customers of ours that utilize netting to keep objects from falling off racks and shelving, or similar purposes.  In addition, there are a lot of Gourock customers that need to protect different areas from debris, errant objects, or other blockade needs.  Whether it be an industrial site, gymnasium, driving range, athletic field-house, warehouse, distribution center, naval ship, residential home, scholastic and municipal location, collegiate location, or most any other unique space, Gourock.com has most likely supplied high-quality netting and custom nets for it.  As a longtime leader in netting supply and e-commerce, Gourock.com conveniently offers custom netting for your immediate sourcing directly through our site and Online Custom Netting Calculator.

Of course, there are also many customer and client netting needs that are best handled with nets that incorporate more specific shape details.  In many cases this means that the area that the netting is going to be installed within has a particular shape that is non-square or rectangular.  With Gourock you can have netting panels constructed to your specific shape and sizing needs, which allows for the best possible fit and performance.  In many cases the preferred solution is to have nets built that feature angles, tapers, or triangular shapes.

Throughout our Gourock.com site and company blog we present many different examples of custom tapered or angled nets that are used for a very wide variety of different uses.  The most popular material that we supply for custom netting panels is the 100% Made in USA DuPont® Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, which is a very durable and high-quality mesh.  At Gourock we have a selection of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses available to best-match the performance needs that you require for your containment, exclusion, or safety needs.  We also have some other American Made mesh options available as well, such as Polyester debris fabric and HDPE debris shade cloth.  We invite you to get in touch with us here at Gourock.com to quote you on specialized custom netting shapes that you may need for your space.  With fast production turnaround times and factory-direct netting supply, Gourock.com is your dependable supplier of high-quality Made in USA netting fabrications that fit your installation with precision.

Here are 4 recent examples from the last few weeks that help demonstrate some of the uniquely customized shape and sizing capabilities available from us here at Gourock Netting and Custom Nets.

TRIANGULAR NETTING PANELS:
These 2 drawings showing the triangular shapes were a series of custom nets that were built from #21 X 3/4" twisted-knotted nylon netting.  There were 7 nets total for the overall supply job, and all of the nets were finished-off with a 1-1/2" webbing bordered with brass grommets stamped into the edging every 12" (entire perimeter).  These nets were built to this specialized shape because our customer needed to block particular areas of his golf driving range hitting bays.  At the driving range site they were having some issues with errant golf drives and shots flying over the general barrier netting that was already surrounding the location.  The preferred solution were triangular netting panels that properly fill-in the problem areas of the hitting bay.  The webbing and grommet bordering allows for convenient attachment points to the existing framing/rafters, and the 3/4" mesh size performs perfectly for blocking and containing full-velocity golf ball shots.  Nets like these are typically produced and ready to ship out within 7-10 business days.



TRAPEZOIDAL NETTING PANELS:

The image that displays a series of netting panels demonstrates a collection of custom nets that were constructed from 1/4" Polyester Debris Mesh.  The overall job included a series of 10 rectangular and tapered netting panels, all of which were 1-1/2" webbing bordered with grommets placed in specific locations.  These nets were designed and produced in these specialized shapes and sizes in order to properly line-up with different openings along a mezzanine storage area at a residential location.  Our customer had a situation where they had a requirement to contain boxes what were located up within the mezzanine storage platform, with the intention of making sure nothing was able to fall out during seismic activity or earthquake.  The small 1/4" mesh size was preferred in order to create a more "screen-like" visual effect in front of the storage space, and the webbing/grommet border was used in order to have some specifically-located attachment points for hooks.  Nets like these are typically produced and ready to ship out within 7-10 business days.


TAPERED SHAPE NETTING PANEL:
The netting panel shown with the customized tapered and angled corner feature was produced from HDPE 50% Shade Debris Cloth, with a sewn-in cord edge to finish-off the perimeter edges.  This netting panel was built to this specific sizing and shape in order to properly line-up with the walls of a residential room that needed a debris barrier to cover the ceiling.  The angled area was incorporated into the netting area in order to provide debris mesh coverage over the stairway location of the space.  Building this custom-shaped net worked out very well for our customer because they could use one single netting cover to effectively cover the ceiling area, rather than needing to makeshift a solution from multiple different sections of rectangular netting.  The shade cloth debris cloth was selected in order to have maximum protection against all debris, including very small objects.  Nets like these are typically produced and ready to ship out within 7-10 business days.
Many thanks to all of our very appreciated custom netting customers and clients!  We are proud to be your high-quality netting supplier, and we appreciate your business very much!

Barrier Netting and Containment Nets for Industrial Installations

Barrier Netting and Containment Nets for Industrial Installations

At Gourock.com we specialize in the supply of netting, custom nets, and netting productions that are utilized within a wide-range of different applications.  Industrial sites and industrial working locations are a couple of these types of spaces that have many uses for the nets that we provide.  Netting is a fantastic solution for many different situations at industrial locations - usually to facilitate a containment, blockade/barrier, protective, or exclusion need at the site.

Over the years we have shipped out custom nets for many industrial, infrastructural, government, and heavy-industry locations and sites.  Gourock.com specializes in custom netting panels and nets that are constructed to most any custom dimensional and size needs, allowing for effective coverage throughout the area of install and blockade necessity.  Using materials such as the highest-quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon results in very high durability and strength features.  In addition, Gourock also offers high performance selections such as DuPont® Kevlar Model 956 and High Molecular Weight Polyethylene.  These materials and netting fabrications are all 100% Made in USA, and are produced with fast turnaround times.

Many industrial sites require netting to surround certain areas in order to act as a barrier against debris, foreign objects, birds/animals, or other unique instances of containment.  For instance, landfills and waste facilities utilize vertical barrier nets surrounding various areas of the location to aid in trash and refuse containment.  Or as another example, an industrial processing site may utilize barrier netting over the tops of containment tanks, retainment ponds, or within pavilion structures in order to serve bird exclusion and general blockade purposes.  At Gourock.com we have lots of experience with all of these types of nets, and allow for convenient access to custom-produced sizes so that our industrial netting customers get the best match for their needs.

As with many vertical barrier netting installations, the netting panels that we supply are typically installed within a series of stout poles or posts that have tensioned wires spanned between them.  These tensioned wires are the connection points in which the rope bordering of the netting is clipped or connected to, often by utilizing spring-loaded snap-hooks (carabiner-style clips).  We offer some great additional context about this type of netting installation approach on our site and also throughout the Gourock blog.  Here are a few photos of a relatively recent barrier netting installation in Georgia that we supplied the custom netting panels for.  The overall installation involved a dozen different nets or so, and they were all clipped up to a series of tensioned wires and wood power-line poles.  The nets were constructed from heavy-duty #36 X 1-3/4" DuPont® Twisted-Knotted Nylon, and rope bordered with 5/16" braided Dacron® lines.  In addition, each netting panel also incorporated a separate rope-line installed horizontally through the netting which lines up with a central wire within the installation area.  The connection between the central wire and the rope-line of the netting help mitigate the movement of the netting in wind.

Many thanks again to all of our custom netting clients and customers - we appreciate your business very much and it's always great working with you!

Sand Volleyball Barrier Netting and Outdoor Volleyball Containment Nets

Sand Volleyball Barrier Netting and Outdoor Volleyball Containment Nets

At Gourock.com we have always specialized in the supply of netting productions and custom nets that are built to contain and block different types of objects in a variety of different situations.  Sport netting and nets used for athletic purposes have always been very popular, as most training areas and court locations need to have a dependable method of containing balls within particular spaces.  For instance, netting is often suspended around basketball and tennis courts, around soccer fields and other outdoor sporting fields, baseball and softball fields and stadiums, and all other types of rinks and playing/practice areas.

Barrier netting for volleyball containment purposes is always available through us at Gourock.com, and we supply volleyball barrier nets for many indoor and outdoor locations, for both traditional and sand volleyball court locations.  A couple of great selections that we have available that are recommended for volleyball containment netting uses are the 2 different 4" square mesh nylon net options we supply.  A 4" square mesh netting is optimal for larger objects such as volleyballs, since it is a mesh configuration that is a bit larger in sizing - however perfectly sized for dependable block of volleyballs and similarly-sized sport balls (soccer, basketball, football, etc.).  Using as large of a mesh size as possible really helps minimize the amount of weight and material per square foot for the nets, which aids in keeping the mesh as minimally visible as possible.

For volleyball netting, at Gourock we supply 2 different twine thickness options to consider using in the 4" square mesh size.  The thinner twine is the #15 (1.8mm with 144 lb./tensile rating) and the thicker twine is the #30 (2.3mm with 334 lb./tensile rating).  For the most lightweight option possible that has the lowest possible 'visibility', the #15 X 4" nylon netting is most popular.  For volleyball netting installations that may expect a higher amount of abrasion, wear-and-tear, or outdoor exposure considerations the #30 X 4" nylon netting is a fantastic barrier netting choice.  Both are constructed from DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon, and are 100% Made in the USA.

Through Gourock's Online Custom Netting Calculator and on the Volleyball Netting category of our online store, you have immediate access to volleyball barrier netting that is prepared according to your own particular sizing needs for the project.  Most any height and any width can be built and shipped out your way, allowing for the perfect netting fit for your court area or any location in-which the containment nets are needed.  The DuPont nylon netting that we supply features high tensile strength and abrasion-resistance, with a low wind-shear % - making them optimal nets for barrier installations and containment applications.

Here are some photos from a recent volleyball barrier netting customer of ours that required netting around their outdoor sand volleyball court.  These nets are built from the lighter #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, and you can see how minimally visible and non-distractive the mesh is.  We supplied the different netting panels produced according to the sizes needed between the vertical poles, and shipped them out to the location.

Many thanks to our very appreciated custom netting customers and clients!  Always feel free to keep in touch with us here at Gourock.com!
