Additional Basketball-Shot Nets

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

A couple of months ago we had posted an article about some custom nylon nets that were shipped out for a basketball-shot application, and you can reference that earlier post here.  The product and material has worked out very well for this customer, and we have facilitated the netting design and production/shipment of a new batch of these nets within the last week.  The particular purpose for the custom netting is to serve as a side-barrier for a basketball-shot setup that they install off of the side of their promotional van during different events and assemblies.  In this latest run of product, the nylon netting was created to match-up with a specific set of tapers and dimensions in order to functionally fit within their installation framing.

The most typically selected netting option for general-use sporting applications, including basketball barrier, is the #21 X 1-3/4″ DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, and usually it is bordered around the edge meshes with a 5/16″ braided Dacron® rope sewn-in.  These are the materials that have been used for all of these basketball-shot nets in the past, as well with the latest run of product as well.  Our customer also has 2″ steel rings sewn-in on the upper corners of each netting panel, which are used to hook/connect the netting to their installation framing.

At we supply a huge variety of custom netting solutions for a really wide spectrum of uses and sizes.  Basically, every single day is something new and unique!  If you have a situation that requires some specific netting sizes and/or shapes – certainly contact us and forward over your details and we can take a look at it for you.  There are netting and material solutions available from Gourock for nearly all inquiries – and it would be great to hear from you!
