Custom Netting in Tapered Shapes and Angled Nets for Sports, Protection, and Bird Barrier

Custom Netting in Tapered Shapes and Angled Nets for Sports, Protection, and Bird Barrier

Netting is a really great solution for a variety of different safety, barrier, and protective needs, and Gourock.com supplies custom nets that are prepared according to most any size you require.  A lot of the netting productions that we supply are needed for barrier purposes involving bird control, property protection, and athletic sport uses.  Over the last couple decades we have provided netting and custom nets that are fabricated per-order, allowing for complete customization of the dimensions.  Featuring DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, we offer a great variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses so that you can get the best possible netting match for your installation.  100% Made in the USA, the custom nylon nets from Gourock.com are built for long-term durability and dependability, and the customized fabrication process allows for the most optimized netting product for the installation area.

Along with offering personalized dimensions, Gourock.com also has the ability to supply you with nets that are built according to custom angles and tapered shapes.  There are many different situations in which the area that the netting is meant to cover would be best facilitated with a finished shape that incorporates angles, such as needing to line-up with a framing structure, within a slanted roofline, between posts/poles on a sloping grade, or within canopy areas.  Depending on the intended usage of the netting, Gourock can have the custom net produced from a variety of different mesh sizes - which are generally determined by considering the smallest object that needs to be blocked.  And there is also a selection of twine thicknesses as well, which are chosen based on preferences for a thinner/lighter or thicker/heavier overall netting installation.

For instance, in the images below there are drawings of 4 different custom netting productions that all feature customized angled shapes or tapers.  Nets like these are specifically fabricated to match our customer's exact space of coverage need, allowing for the netting to most effectively function as expected.  These types of nets are designed and built according to the dimensions that we receive on our end through correspondence (email or phone), and then we get the actual netting product squared-away from the recommended mesh/twine/material selection and to the custom shape.  As you can see from these 4 recent examples, there is a lot of flexibility into your available options to consider!

These 4 recent nets we all facilitated in the last few weeks, and generally take within 5-7 working days to be ready to ship out (on average).  These nets are specifically being used for 4 different types of uses:

  • soccer goal side-panel reinforcement nets (#36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon)
  • indoor golf containment side-wall nets (#15 X 3/4" knotted nylon)
  • driving range hitting bay protection net (#21 X 3/4" knotted nylon)
  • outdoor pavilion large bird exclusion nets (#36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon)
For situations in which a custom net may be your best solution, we invite you to get in touch with us at Gourock.com and we can always take a look at your project and quote some available options!  Custom netting is our specialty - so feel free to take a look at Gourock's Online Custom Netting Calculator or some of the different Netting Types we offer, and we can supply you with the best netting for the job.  
Many thanks to our custom netting customers, your business is very appreciated!

Extreme Archery is a very active and engaging archery sport and league developed by Archery Tag®, and is played in both outdoor and indoor locations.  At the Archery Tag® headquarters in Indiana there is a really great indoor extreme archery training and development facility, and part of the design incorporates barrier netting for safety and function purposes.  The netting used for this containment installation is the #18 X 1" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  In this case, the netting was produced in a square mesh pattern, with a 5/16" Dacron® rope bordered edge sewn-in around the perimeter.  The nets in this case were produced to sizes of 12'-6" X 30' and 12'-6" X 26', and they are installed within our customer's design of tensioned wires, snap-hook clips, and weighted bar bottoms.

These nets are very strong, making them an ideal and dependable selection for durable containment and blocking of the large-tip padded Archery Tag® arrows.  They also have great visual appeal, and allow for the indoor area to remain and bright and lit as possible.  The #18 twine thickness nylon twine has a tensile strength rating of 191 lbs., and nylon material has a very high resistance to abrasion and friction - providing absolutely excellent safety dependability and long term durability.  As you can see from the photos below, the nylon barrier nets look fantastic and are a perfect solution for high-traffic safety needs for this indoor activity space.

New Custom Commercial Batting Cage Nets and Baseball/Softball Netting

New Custom Commercial Batting Cage Nets and Baseball/Softball Netting

At Goruock.com we have been specializing in the supply of very custom baseball and softball batting cage nets and tunnel nets for the past 20 years, and many of these sports nets that we provide are manufactured for commercial usages and installations.  Various organizational customers such as hitting facilities, colleges and universities, professional training establishments, field-house locations, and municipal clients have all utilized the custom netting capabilities offered by Gourock for their batting cage nets and pitching tunnel nets.

Throughout the Gourock.com site and also in many posts within this blog, there are dozens of examples of different custom batting cage nets and enclosure nets that we have facilitated and supplied over the years.  To add to the ongoing examples of customized baseball and softball nets provided by Gourock.com, here are a couple more custom nets that have been done over the most recent business days.  Commercial and high-abrasion batting cage nets supplied by Gourock.com are most typically constructed from the #36 X 1-3/4" DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting.  This is a very high tensile strength and dependable netting selection that is 100% Made in USA, features excellent friction resistance, and great ease-of-use for installation.  The completed baseball and softball hitting tunnels are manufactured and prepared per order with expert hand-craftsmanship, with quick turnaround times, and direct delivery to your location.

Gourock.com offers the ability for you to have batting cage nets constructed according to most any dimensions required, allowing you to get the proper fit and functionality required for each particular installation area.  Also available for custom production options are features such as additional rope-lines, doors/entrance areas, openings and open-ends, tapered and angled shapes, divider panels, and other unique design aspects requested by our customers.  Additionally, as a longtime leader in e-commerce netting supply we also have immediate pricing and ordering options directly through our Custom Batting Cage Netting Calculator.  We invite you to either place orders directly through our online store, or to contact Gourock directly to request formal quotations for more customized design features you are interested in.

These two recent batting cage nets both incorporate the #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting, along with 5/16" Dacron rope bordering on all edges.  They also are both designed to fit in shorter-length areas, as they were to be hung within indoor locations with limited space availability.  As you can see from the production diagrams, one of the tunnels incorporates an "open end" request, while the other net is built to an extra-wide configuration to allow for multiple partitioning into different individual tunnel areas by using divider panel nets.  Both nets were designed for specific and unique sizing needs for two very different locations, and with Gourock.com as your netting source you can get the proper net fit to best match your available training space.

Many thanks again to our very appreciated batting cage netting customers!  Your business is very valued, and it is our pleasure to serve and supply you!

Outdoor Sport Court Netting, Custom Nylon Sports Netting and Court Barrier Nets

Outdoor Sport Court Netting, Custom Nylon Sports Netting and Court Barrier Nets

At Gourock.com we specialize in the supply of custom nets and netting productions that are utilized for a wide variety of different applications and industries.  One of the very popular uses for the nets that we provide is for outdoor sport courts and court barrier needs.  Typical examples of outdoor courts that require barrier nets are for basketball, tennis, volleyball, hockey, lacrosse, field hockey, dodgeball, futsol, pickleball, baseball and softball, and other multipurpose sports training and playing needs.  Outdoor sport courts are generally surrounded by barrier nets in order to contain balls within the practice space and to avoid the inconveniences of the balls and objects from leaving the area, flying into streets and roads, impacting nearby property structures, breaking windows, or any other instance in which errant balls cause issues.

Gourock.com has many different netting selections to consider using for your outdoor sport court barrier needs, with a wide variety of mesh sizes and twine thicknesses to choose from.  Different sports and activities have different typical mesh sizes that are used, all based on the diameter of the objects that are to be blocked and contained.  For instance, for court owners that are strictly concerned with containing larger objects like basketballs, soccer balls, and volleyballs then a larger 4" mesh size netting selection is a great option to go with.  However, to contain those larger objects as well as smaller ones such as tennis balls, baseballs, softballs, and pickleballs - sizing down a mesh to 1-3/4" sizing is the way to go.

There are many sport court locations that are multisport and have the intention of basically wanting to be prepared to contain all types of different objects ranging from hockey pucks and lacrosse balls all the way up to larger basketballs and soccer balls.  For outdoor multisport court installations, we offer a really popular and recommended netting selection which is the #18 X 1" DuPont Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting.  This is a netting choice that has a robust 191 lb./twine tensile rating, a high abrasion resistance, and also features an extra heavy-duty weather coating known as a "tar-coating" for maximum durability to UV and the outdoor elements.  The 1" mesh size is fantastic for multisport uses, as it is small enough to properly contain smaller objects like hockey pucks and lacrosse balls, but also functions very well for everything larger as well.

Generally speaking, outdoor court nets that are built from the #18 X 1" knotted nylon are often constructed in a square mesh pattern with a 5/16" Dacron rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  The rope bordering adds a very strong and durable finishing edge around the perimeter of the netting, and the square mesh pattern results in a straight and even appearance throughout the length of the netting area.  Overall, this netting selection from Gourock.com is a really great selection to consider for most all outdoor sports court barrier applications that you may be needing to facilitate.  We offer immediate online pricing and ordering of custom nets directly through the Gourock Online Custom Netting Calculator, and feature quick turnaround times for netting orders with 100% Made in USA materials and craftsmanship.

Here are some photos of a recently installed sports court barrier job that utilizes the #18 X 1" square mesh knotted nylon netting.  Our client uses fencing post materials for the supports, and custom-built lengths of 1" knotted nylon netting from Gourock to complete the sports court jobs for their customers.  As you can see, the the #18 X 1" DuPont nylon netting has a really great appearance with minimal visual obstructions, and will serve as a highly effective containment net for multisport uses within the space.

Many thanks again to our greatly appreciated nylon netting customers!  Seeing photos of finished work is always invited, and we also invite anyone who is interested in nylon netting solutions to contact Gourock.com directly and we can assist!
