A Couple of Interesting Custom Batting Cage Nets

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Baseball and softball batting cage nets can be found at people’s private homes, at schools and park/rec departments, universities, stadiums, and training facilities.  For many, many years Gourock.com has supplied hundreds of customers with batting cage nets that are best suited for that user’s particular needs.  Most batting cage nets are constructed in a fairly basic netting “tunnel” design, with a consistent height X width X length.  Different types of netting materials and strengths are available, and most customers pick a net that best aligns with their sizing needs, their expected amount of wear-and-tear, and of course their preferences on pricing.  Gourock.com offers a great selection of high-quality batting cage nets that perform very well for all types of different installations and users – and you can get a good context on these “typical” netting designs on this part of our site.

But there is another side to batting cage netting, which generally leans towards customized designs and sizing requirements.  There are a few primary situations in which the customized batting cage netting productions are often needed – with the main one being that there is an existing installation structure or area that is unique in shape or size and the only functional way to get a net hung correctly is to have it built to best match the space.  We see this often with commercial baseball and softball training facilities, as well as a lot of indoor installations.  Another typical situation in which the batting cage netting needs to be more customized is for “plus sized” nets.  This is typically an installation that requires extra height, width, and length – usually for multiple training/hitting areas in a row.  Separate divider panel nets usually accompany the enclosure netting for these types of orders.

Gourock.com has custom batting cage nets constructed from the highest quality materials, including DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, and braided Dacron® ropes.  Featuring 100% Made in the USA materials and craftsmanship, and quick manufacturing turnaround, custom netting and enclosures from Gourock are available to be produced according to most any sizing specifications that you have for your project, business, facility, school/team, or municipal organization.

Here are a couple of examples from this spring that show some of the customized features and designs that we are capable of providing for batting cage netting enclosures.  These are both for commercial training facilities and have various unique characteristics that were requested by our customers so that the finished product fit their particular installation areas the best.
